This game had a great menu, really innovative. The gameplay and graphics weren't too good though.

Cool menu, nice audio, could use clearer game mechanics. Nice job, though

@Marc F. thanks for the input I was actually planning to add more in depth controls but ran out of time .-.

I find it very interesting, and I love the graphics. The menus are great too. There is also a weird thing if you press enter it resets the music so it replays multiples of the same song, don't know if that was intentionally or not for a replay feature. Good job!

yeah enter was for debugging purposes and just restarts the room, but I forgot to have it check if music is playing before it plays the music. I also need to mess with the sound effects because they seem a lot louder then the music. x...x thanks

Loved the simple color palette you stuck too. Little details like movement in the title screen and the clever menu system made it feel like a really polished game. It was a cool concept that allowed you to pull really cool maneuvers that you're proud of if you manage to actually pull it off. :) great job!

I'm not sure exactly what I'm supposed to do. I turned into a bird and kept flying up on platforms, but my score didn't go up much (220). Turning into an animal didn't seem to help much. What does the saw form do?

I really do like the menu system and the cool simplistic look of the game though. That's nicely done.

Had trouble figuring out how to play properly, felt like the controls weren't responding to what I was trying to do. But liked the unique visuals thought they worked really well and the menu was also a nice touch.

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.
