The concept is great :)
I made it to the boss, but I just came back to the main screen when I touched him. Have I finished the game?

I really enjoyed it for a bit, until the music got a bit too repetitive and I realized the bird was moon flying like he was bird Michael Jackson. Love the concept though, and it performed fine.

The executable doesn't work for me (64-bit windows) - it just opens a ton of processes but no actual windows.

I liked what I played, but got stuck pretty early on. Damn those owls

When you compile in game maker be sure to change it from the .msi installer to the .exe standalone executable. nobody wants to install a bunch of games for the ludum dare it's too much work

The concept was actually really good. It had a great interesting idea :D The only bad thing was repetitive music. Still, it was pretty fun.

This is horrible. As soon as shapeshifting was introduced, I already found a glitch.

Cute game, I enjoyed the owls - especially that second to last level with a whole bunch of them (even though that was easy).
Could use a little more polish on the movement, level transitions - but hey, it's a game jam. I'd like to see some harder puzzles too. And if you can't find good background music (it's too repetitive) I would suggest maybe just going with ambient noises.

Cool concept, but I feel like it could be further polished. ALso the music is very repetitive. Cool game though

Damn those owls! Only thing i can criticise is jump sound which repeats with every tap of up arrow, it would be nice if it played only if player is on the ground.

A couple of programming bugs which made it awkward at times, but I do like the idea. Wish you took more advantage of it though and perhaps gave the boy an ability over the bird.
As a note, when exporting with GameMaker, if it is a small game like this just make it an standalone executable rather than an NSIS installer.

Nice and simple game with a good concept. I liked the flying poop king. Some of the levels had nice puzzles too!

Not the most polished game but it has some pretty good platform puzzles.

Not bad. The music loop got to me by the end, and I don't know what the deal with that huge owl at the end is. It just made the game restart. Not too bad overall though.

Good job! I really enjoyed the concept, even though I was a bit confused at first.

Looks great! Excellent art.

The installer was annoying, but the game was fun. A few bugs though.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
