Is it missing some files ? I get a "run baby run.exe" and an error message " There should be 'Run Baby Run_Data'
folder next to the executable"

The game doesn't start. As this is a Unity game, you need to zip the exe AND the "Run Baby Run_Data" folder.

Can't play, it needs the data folder. Unity games need the data folder too not just the exe.

Well done! Nice characters, animation, control responsiveness and infinite running. I did think most of the difficulty came from controlling the flying character rather than navigating the environment. I would have liked to feel a bit more in control and forced into tight spots by the level itself.

The game runs HYPER fast. I can't see what's ahead of me. Is this ok?

Pretty good endless runner, the randomization felt quite unfair at times! I wish there was less mines at first... And a way to retry without the mouse?

Thank you @mooncalf for your Comment. agree! The Level Generator wasn't Tuned Perfectly Because Of Short Time.

Thank You For Playing My Game @matiasbontempo.
NO! it's Not Okey. It's A Bug Related To TimeScale That Happens Sometimes. Restart The Game.

Hi @Blob ,Thank You So Much. Yes Maybe Unfair Sometimes.
Agree ,The Game Has Some Imperfections Because Of Time. I'm Working On these Problems.

Cool endless runner and a nice use of shapeshifting as a game mechanic. I'd second both of blob's suggestions.

An enjoyable endless runner with really nice graphics. The shapeshifting mechanic felt just right, good job on that one!
It felt like the game produced some unfair situations which one could not come by. Also, it would've been nice if the character ran back to the starting position after getting pushed back a little, would've made the runs a little longer probably.
Good job overall!

Thank You Again Bro.

Really addictive infinite runner, I would suggest a quicker way to replay (such as a simple space press) as well as an indicator as to where the mines are. I couldn't manage to get past 72 but I'm happy with that.

Hi @Tselmek.
Thank you for your Suggestions.
I agree with you and will apply them ;)

Very nice endless runner, good usage of mines :D

The animations and the music were good.
Cool game mechanics.
The platforms and mines placement were done well.

There isn't much relation though between the art of the environment , the background , the man ,the flying thing :P and the game name as well.
It's basically an infinite runner with no clear context or a background story(which isn't to say that this is bad)
it's just my personal preference (especially when there are many infinite runners out there)

Good Job !

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.
