Amazing use of the theme! I liked the idea and the graphics, but I felt it was very hard. Don't let this die after Ludum Dare!

Getting an error dialog trying to run it, titled "Java Virtual Machine Launcher" with the dialog "A Java Exception has occurred." OK is the only option. I'm on Windows 7.

Would love to play this one, but it's WASD :/ Please, think about us Europeans, and bind the WASD keys on the arrow keys as well ^^'

The ending blew me away! hehe
I was not exactly clear on what to do, but after a few tries I figured it out.
Good mood, cool concept, great art! Good work!

I liked it, it had something to it. I wasn't sure what to do as the knight? Maybe I could have killed the black knigths, that was kinda missing :) I really like the concept behind this. Great work.

Thanks for the positive comments so far everyone! Make sure to read the How to Play to help solve any confusion you may have!

We are working on fixing Java errors and rebinding keys for Europeans.

Really cool and intense. Loved the music. I played a couple of times and ones the knight got inside the girl dream - at first, I thought that there is some meaning behind this but it looks that it's just a bug :P

I love the idea, the feel, the mood, the audio, I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME! ...except there's something missing... maybe some more instruction? I'm not really sure what to do in the dream with the baby.

Oh why Java? Who would install Java for a LD game,... :'(

Absolutely stunning game! I like the 3 different perspective the 3 siblings have. The game play was nice with each having their own specialty. The audio was done so well for the game. The game graphics well done too. I suggest you finish this game up because it has good gameplay and a good story line. Overall very nice game. Keep it up!

U-A-U. I really love the concept. It's one of the top concepts i see in this jam, I love it! Nice art and music fits very well with the flow of the game. It's one of my favourite game in LDJAM37. Good job!

That was fun, very hard though

A very sweet game. Firstly, areas I would love to see improve - the controls are quite awkward, it would be great to have some more sound effects and some more feedback that you are hurting the knights.

Now my many compliments, it looks fantastic, animations are nice, the music was incredibly well suited, the concept is really inventive, the mood is excellent (particularly the baby's dream - terrifying, how could you!) and the simple little narrative is genuinely beautiful.

Very well done, thanks for sharing!

Yeah, great concept, art and sound. I was a bit confused about the knight too, but still, really nice!

Neat idea! But a bit unintuitive, especially at first.

Cool idea and great pixel art! Nice entry. :D

That's a really innovative idea, and I love the art and the music. But the game is a bit too harsh in its actual state. Not really clear at first, especially because of the keyboard mapping, a bit weird. I guess you could use a bit more feedback also on the player's actions and to reinforce the tension.

Lovely graphics, interesting game. I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
