Everything about this rules! Pure chaos and an awesome concept, well done!

Score: 115.

REALLY CONFUSING. There is a delay when I press the controls, don't know why. Loved the idea, although it's a bit of a stretch when talking about the theme.

I thought it was good but the delay on the controls pretty much ruins the experience.

For a compo entry, that is a lot of 3D models! Good job on that end. The delay really hurts the controls, but aside from that the rest is fine. Simple sounds would of added a lot of flavor to the game. Especially hearing all the battles going on.

Haha, I loved it! what an absurd and entertaining experience. I liked kicking the ball around as a dinosaur :)

Really like the models, and the chaos when everyone's attacking you (especially the T-rex's). I never did find the gamepad... nor was I able to enter a device. Can you enter the T-rex's to take control of them? I tried, but nothing happened...

It's too bright. Control delay is little frustraiting

I really like the idea and the concept behind this. The graphics are cool as well. There are some things that could make it better I think, in case you want to flesh it out more later:

The graphics could use some more contrast.
The delay on the controls is irritating and makes it feel very imprecise
A crosshair would be ncie
I think making the shooting faster would make it feel more enjoyable :)

I love the "small scale style" and the depth in the environment. Great job!

seems like there is a lot of work put on in here!
i think some audio could have improved the mood and atmosphere of the game.
but still it was a fun experience and a very nice entry! well done!

Took me a few tries to get a hang of it. Once realizing that the blue ones helped you, it got a bit easier. I managed to beat it on my fourth attempt. Some audio would've done wonders for this game.

I won! Man, I think this is the greatest concept ever. I didn't really understand how to use the T-Rex too and shooting lightning didn't seem to do anything. But still, amazing level design and idea!

Nice game, well done man! I think you justo should increment some sound effects into it, to give more sendse to the environment, but good job!

Absolute madness, awesome! Controls and collisions are a little confusing, though. Loved playing the BMO

But anyways awesome game!

Nice one, my 5 first run I did them without understand that I could get in the devices... :s
After I read the description ^^

If you interested, me too I (try to) made an adventure time game. ;)

I love this idea. I donwloaded this game while working and couldn't wait to play it. nice job. Maybe next time with sound or it's a bug^^. The level also is a nice idea. Maybe make the player turn faster for atacking?

This was very fun. There was no audio, but I think gameplay was excelent.

Super ambitious and crazy, love the environment, but I never found the gamepad. Also I'd like to be able to move one direction and fire another, but it occasionally shoots in the way I'm moving

Great game mechanics! The controls were pretty neat, and I love how you need to scout around a little bit to see where you can walk like on books and stuff. The game pad took a while to find.. but overall it was fun! :)
I couldn't figure out how this fits with the theme... but I really liked the game. Great work!

Very confusing to know whats going on. its a good idea but there are a few flaws that need to be ironed out.

Nice modeling, the lightning was a little bit over the top though. Should have been able to control the dinosaurs?

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 ( 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.
