I liked the art style, but I got stuck on the level with the ninja stick. The instructions could also be a bit more descriptive (for instance, it says 'click for a bit', but it should really say something like 'click and hold')

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

I like the art of the game but I also got stuck on the puzzle about the ladder, maybe the triggers need to be bigger to realise the action.
Also the grabbing things mechanic is confusing the first couple of times, maybe the circle around the mouse could be bigger so it would be easy to notice.
Good job, now time to rest a lil bit!

Good job! Create a puzzle game for the compo is challenging!

For a future update, the game could use some visual hint about where to use the torch and the soup, like a arrow for example. Some text/action triggers could been bigger, or the text automatically be shown when the player get near. Maybe highlight even more the objects and force the player to remember how to build the axe and ladder.

Keep working on it! And sorry my broken english. ^^'

I like how his moustache falls off when he dies :{O
nice art :O

make the item pick up click shorter instead of holding for so long. that made the game a bit tedious

Also, it would be nice if there was a visual indicator for when items are being used, or are Done being used, cause it was kind of confusing using some items and seems like nothing happened.

overall, a fun little point and click adventure!

Nice little crafting platformer.

I had a little bit of trouble at the beginning figuring out how the mechanics in the game worked, exactly. I'm also not sure how to eat the mushrooms that I pick up later on, so that's where I had to give up because my character couldn't eat and continue.

Anyways, still a nice game!

I'm stuck with mother of sticks and I need to eat, but I don't know how. Typical life of hipster :o)

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 (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.
