Hi,

 nice game, played and rated.

Please feel free to try out my game here:  https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/474542

if you don’t want to play the buggy version, add to collection as I’m working on a new and bigger version.

Many thanks,

Kris

I like that you didn't use a game engine to make this! Good job :)

Submitted

cool little game!

i like the cute fat cat!!

but the music becomes annoying after some time you should extend the loop

Submitted

You have created the entire game without using a game engine? That's a lot of extra work, I guess many people here didn't ever try something like that.

Developer

I am sure some think I am a bit crazy for it, but I love it.  It is a lot of work, but very rewarding. Thanks for checking it out!

Submitted

A cute fat cat. The movement is maybe too slow and music repetitive. But it's a nice little game. I'm sure the game would have been much better if you had more time.  :)

Developer

Thanks for playing. Very true that more time would have helped. This is the first game jam that I've ever done. Shortest time I've made a game in. First game I have ever published anywhere. And I only learned how to add sounds to my games about two weeks ago. (Self taught). Definitely a learning curve, but lots of fun!

Submitted

That's awesome! 

Hi, I downloaded your game because of your karma! :)
Good start on a game, maybe the controls could be a little faster in the update ;)

Developer(+1)

Thanks. I am planning on continuing the game after the jam is over. Thanks for the advice.

Cute game. On the mini map the mouse and cat icons swap  sometimes which can get a bit annoying.

Developer

Thanks for playing. The mini map does like to lie.

A Cute Game! Artstyle and Game Features can be alot better! Rated!

Developer

Thanks for playing.

Wouldn't open on my computer~  But congrats on finishing a game anyways!  Check out mine if you can~

Developer

I'm sorry it wouldn't open. If it was telling you missing dlls, I have a link in another comment that has the dlls in it. I didn't know about the dlls until it was too late to fix it.

Submitted

Cool and fun idea!

Developer

Thanks for playing. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

The a simple and fun little game idea. I would have liked the cat and the mole to be faster. Overall a okay jam game.

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing. I agree, movements definitely could have been a touch faster.

Submitted

Interesting game. Not quite sure how it fits into the theme, but it's certainly something to keep your attention for a few minutes.

Developer

If you open the mini map by pressing M, it will tell you where the holes are, and where you and the mole are. The mini map continually lies about where the holes are, and at times switches your position with the mole. Also, the entire map spells LIAR

Submitted

Ahhh, that makes more sense. Actually, that fits the theme very well! Nice job.

Developer

Not sure if it is allowed, hopefully is. I have added an updated version of my game to itch.io at https://steffy81.itch.io/caml-update  It is the exact same game. I have not touched any of the code, only added the dll files that are missing. I cannot add them to the current submission because of it being in the game jam.

Submitted

You play a fat slow cat trying to catch a troublesome mole. Luckily, the mole is slower, so once you spot the little nuisance, you can easily catch him! I have not yet beat the game, but I am making good progress... patience in this case is a virtue :D

Fun idea of a game.

Developer

I'm glad you enjoyed the game. Thanks for playing.

Attempted to download my submission on another computer and it tells me that it is missing two dlls. msvcp140.dll and vcruntime140.dll    :(  These are redistributables through visual studios.

Submitted

Works fine on my system, but I'm also a dev, lol...Note to anyone else needing the missing runtime, just google "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable" and click on the official MICROSOFT.COM link (NONE OF THE OTHERS!) and DL then install, and things should work fine. :)
