i think the character moves abit to slow, the music is nice and the idea is good i think.

I think that the camera is a little strange.

Definitely well put together. Doing more of third person over the should thing with some springy-ness might help with the camera not feeling so stiff. Well done

It works fine. It'd be nice to see enemies or something that could make me lose.

Thank god I found that gem to become a horse, the human was moving so slow :), the art is nice and the grass animation is very cool, but I think the game didnt really use the theme that much.

A nice and simple game. And the graphics and sound are very good. The web build is very buggy, but the windows version works well. However, I had some problems with getting unpacked the zip file.

Is the farm magical because I fell out of the world, otherwise a nice game

3D vertigo.
So I don't vote as I can't play.
But I like the graphics.

So the horse power is to glitch through fences ? Just kidding. Nice realisation, a bit buggy as I was saying, but gameplay is here.
(tested on web version, that didn't work until fullscreen)

Some more interactions that would make the levels feel less like basic mazes could be a nice addition.

Web version was kinda buggy until I put it in fullscreen but otherwise nice game. :)

I found the pitchforks, became a horse and found a cow but couldn't really figure out how to use the pitchforks (If horses do at all use pitchforks). I did however find a hole in the ground and fell through so I think it should count as breaking free.

I tried the web first on Firefox but couldn't move the character for some reason. On windows it took me a while to get going because the button element was way to the left of the text. Minor things though. I agree with the other comments that some smoothness to the camera tracking would have been nice, but all in all a quite playable little game.

Thankfully I found the diamond like first both levels, go horse(only part of the theme?:P)! Nice graphics!

Nice entry! I wish there were more levels because it is a bit short to finish the game. Adding a timer could be a simple but useful feature. Appart from that, good job! I like the minecraft-like design ;)

Nice game! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :)

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.
