A little game made by me and my sister.

Very rushed towards the end, but I think we came out with something pretty neat!

I love it!! The art style is so unique and cute - I love each character's design - and then the gameplay itself is silly and fun. I enjoyed that even though it's a small, self-contained game there's different types of gameplay to try out. And overall I just enjoy your vision of the future. :D

Wow! This was great! The art was charming! The gameplay was simple and nice, and the dialogue was hilarious! (Can I join Google in banning memes?) Overall, great job to the both of you! :D

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.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 ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description. (you can already find several games from the jam there)

The gameplay was pretty simple, but I loved the dialogue and the art. The interpretation of the theme was really creative. Good job.

I really like the art style. Something about it took the relatively simple gameplay and made it really interesting. Honestly knowing how well fruit ninja manages to do you could probably make something pretty compelling out of the "shooting" minigame alone. Nice quirky writing and all around charming entry!

art was awesome, sound design was good, all the actions had good "game Feelings"... i really liked the crossing stuff out on the list, doing it yourself rather than just having it checked off was really cool. Jokes r good, meme r good, this game is meme...

Whoaw, one of the best entries in this LD edition i have seen so far. Very cool graphics and they were made in so short time, really impressive. I also like the characters, we don't know much about them but short dialogues give them enough personalities. At first i thougth that gameplay is going to be the low point of this game but i was wrong, mini-games were fun to play and really challenging if you wanted that angry man to give you more stars. Humour is also great, google ended memes and you are literally shooting movies. Pretty great game in overall, can't wait to see what you got for next LD.

Excellent graphics, and the gameplay felt good, too. I didn't realize that the rounds were timed at all until time ran out on the first one. With that music I was expecting a much more laid-back game! There was just a bit too much text at the front end for me.

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.
