Pretty cute!  Gameplay quite repetitive though?  (I made 3 monsters, they didn't appear to affect gameplay?)  Might have missed something, only played briefly!

It looks like a really cute game! I love the creatures you can play as. Very good job!

[Edit]
My driver's test is today for my learner's permit.
I don't know how to feel about this.

Yeah, gameplay isn't my strong point when it comes to game jams ahah...
There's an ending when you get on level 5+ though! And on level 4+ the map get alot bigger too.

@Lark
If it isn't too late, good luck.

Figured I'd share one of my favorite french comic artists.
He's always a very good inspiration source, so... Have some uchronia.

Ohhhh I like the style a lot.

I'm currently trying to fix my Mac. The external speakers won't work. I've looked up the problem and apparently it comes from using headphones then unplugging them.. I've done everything that several sites say and its still not working.
I hope my dad doesn't find out because I'll die
I don't mind using headphones but he doesn't.

Is anyone here a fan of board games. I'm looking into buying a new board game, one with a good bit of strategy but also socializing with other players and backstabbing galore. I've been looking at "Survive: Escape from Atlantis" and "Galaxy Trucker" as some options. If anyone knows of any great board games I would love to hear of them.

haha not a huge fan of the source material, even though it was kinda funny in it's own right(because of how terribly cheesy it was, that and it was primarily aimed at prepubescent girls, of which I've never been a part of the demographic. so more of a statement of fact than criticism)
but this "animate make-up" is hilarious :D figured you guys would enjoy it if you haven't seen it already

250+ animators, by the looks of some shots, some seasoned industry vets included, love the skills and styles of some shots.

Be interested to see this level of open collaboration in other mediums, remaking something is much easier than fabricating something from scratch especially for newbies, breaking up a really rich piece of artwork into chunks and recreating it in your own style? something like a Bosch painting would be flippin' amazing

Oh shit, thank goodness you explained all that, I could easily have mistook you for garnering some enjoyment from a TV show... FOR GIRLS! 

Anyway, such a nice project, wish I'd gotten involved.  :y:

Hey, my Mac fixed itself.. okay then.

On a side note, I'm having art/writers block. I have too many things I want to draw and only a week until band starts and I doubt I can draw everything by that time.
Should I finish my German shepherd drawing, or should I finish worldbuilding/character designing for my story? Or should I just pixel some?
