I really like the graphics (did you do any rotoscoping? ), the style is great, the voice acting is a nice touch, gameplay is smooth. You even added comments into your code blocks. A trick is to add /// to an actual line of code at the top to give that block a title FYI. - @bytedesigning / Ashley

This one sets a very cool mood - I wanted more at the end. In fact, I'm not sure if I really got to the real end or not... But for some reason that was okay.

Nice work!

Voice work, music, art - well done, seriously. This is really nicely polished.

Is there any game-play to this besides walking around? I didn't really get it.

Incredibly engaging, and as a result disappointingly short. Everything from the art-style to the music had me totally captivated. Quality work!

The graphics were amazing. The voice (I don't know if that's your voice) is a little bit hard to understand some times.

Pretty sweet! The graphics looked great and I liked the little interactive bits. The ending was kinda abrupt, though!

Disappointed there wasn't more. Had a really nice mood to the game and then it abruptly ended, unless I missed something. I'm guessing time constraints were a factor. Would like to check out a post-jam version some time.

Fantastic mood created through the music, sound effects, art, and pacing. Great work, and I'd love to see more of this after the jam!

Unfortunately I couldn't hear any voices, so I had no clue what I was doing. The other audio and the graphics are really great though and I wish I could have played more. I got a little irritated by the fact I could click on places where I couldn't walk, and instead of telling me that the guy kept running around forever until I stopped him.

Really well polished. Love the graphics and voice over work!

Very unique art style! You set the mood quite well sir. It'd be nice to see the theme come forth. I guess that was the beginning of a shapeshift when the guy could not move and he held his head in his hands? But great compo entry overall.

Wow, this is fantastic... I'd love to see where you take it. Well done!

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.
