I think the controls aren't working for :(

Otherwise, nice music!

It was really hard to control the player, reset the cam, and fight at the same time. Also, even if I can kill the monsters, it is almost impossible to collect the clocks properly... The idea was nice, but I had a hard time with this game. The music is nice :)

It played nicely, was hard at first, but I got used to it. I thought the quit tree was funny :D

The game didn't quite render correctly for me - my laptop sometimes has trouble with 3D games. However I did get to see how nice the animations were on the player character. And I managed to see a game where the character just floats around amongst the stars as the floor didn't render in - it's was actually quite soothing and relaxing. :D

This is because your computer / laptop doesn't support pixel shader profile 3.0. However, the map effect (using blood) is too complex for shader profile 2.0 (which your computer is capable of, obviously), so there are only low chances on fixing that... sorry.

There's a lot of content in there for a weekend! An intro, a hub world and the battle arenas themselves. Not bad!

I found this quite fun! Didn't _quite_ understand the gameplay though. Controls were not convenient - you should get rid of space to enter fight mode. But other than that good!

found myself getting engrossed into this game. The presentation of the game has a very strange and enjoyable feel to it, combat is also good. Interesting twist on the expert level. Wouldnt mind seeing this idea go further with more levels etc as its seeming with potential

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
