Great art and great music! Nice gameplay.
It took me some time till I figured out how the merge button works (especially that it has only an effect when to creatures are on top of each other).

@lonesurvivor Thanks a lot for the feedback :)! We think you are totally right, the merge button should be more intuitive to use.

This looks lovely. I failed horribly on the first try, but got the hang of it by the second. Buttons quickly made sense to me with a bit of trial and error.

The music and graphics are amazing. The idea of the game is good, but when to use merge, fight and create is a bit unclear. But overall great job.

I like the visuals a lot. The difficulty ramps up nicely too, so one game doesn't take too long.

Nice simple gameplay. The graphics are the highlight, though. And the music is also pretty sweet. Took me ages to figure out how to use the merge button, the other ones were fairly intuitive.

The overall mood is so peaceful ! Really liked it. Maybe the stars in the background could be animated to even improve this feeling ! Graphics are amazing. I think it was pretty intuitive actually, but quite hard to survive ! Very good work :)

Wow, it has good graphics, music, and it's an interesting idea. I just wish it were done on a larger scale or something. It took me a while to figure out what was going on, so a tutorial would be nice.

Congrats to you Marta and your team for creating such a fun game. I would like to see you push this concept even further! More planets, more creatures types, and even more interactivity options would definitely make this a game people could spend a lot of time playing. I wish you good luck for your entry!

Cool game! I like the simple gameplay mechanics, sweet graphics and the chaos of course. How about adding temporary peace/evade state haha?

Very nice graphics.

Didn't fully understand what was going on until I read the help, the big shiny buttons made me assume I played the game using them. Also I think X/C on the help screen have been switched.

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. Many solo participants 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.
