You should upload a *zipped* file. Otherwise downloading the files is very difficult.

Nice work though :D Reminds me of The Golden Compass title for the Nintendo DS.

The memories...

Nice game but sometimes its hard to doge enemy bullets and shooting yourself because the camera flips over if you move one step left

So butiful music.. and hard sound of forms change XD.
Camera swap to left, when you have stepped to left did my mage wounded at some places :'(
And I think you should make scale of all objects smaller for best perfomance next time/

Nice game! I like how the forms balance each other out. The music is really good, too.

Just a heads up: the .pdb files unity generates on the same folder as the .exe are for debug only, you can delete them to make the game much smaller

I really liked the music in this game. Sadly couldn't progress far though. Should say that jump button isnt as responsive as I expect it to be. Ended up falling down a lot.

I like the graphics and music and overall gameplay, but it's quite annoying that I can't jump while moving, or just can't jump at all occasionally.

Love the animation of the panther! The camera movement made the game a bit difficult, overall fun though :)

Pretty interesting mechanics, congrats. Was Shadow of the Beast an inspiration? The background colours definitely made me wonder.

Pretty fun overall but I had some trouble with the input. Sometimes it would register jump while moving and sometimes it wouldn't.

I like the sprite animations! Controls/physics could have been better, and you can't see ahead far enough to prepare yourself well.

Druid! Loved this. A littel wonky at times, but loved it all the same. Saving up bears, running out of mana, shift-s on the wrong platform. Saved my forest!

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.
