If you have implemented the modifier, how have you done so?
I have made it so you are protecting one button.

Any additional information for voters?
I got the save and load working. but it started to act weird after exporting. I'm gonna work on it.

Loved this one - surprisingly addictive. The extra little graphical details were impressive (faces changing etc). The sound was a bit wonky though.


I will admit that I wasn't entirely sure where the shop was, and I'm still not entirely sure if the facial expressions actually meant anything.

The controls (and especially the attacking!) were pretty janky, but, for this jam, I'd say that's a good thing.

Overall, it's a pretty good game, especially for this jam.


The gameplay is a little janky, but the concept is pretty solid, and I like the inversion of the theme. I did find it weird that I had to face the enemies to hit them, but I got used to it. There are definitely some degenerate strategies that work too well, but I don't think that's necessarily a negative for this jam.

If there's one thing that doesn't hit the mark it's the pacing. I didn't realize there was a boss or shop; after about 14 waves it started to get tedious and I moved on.


This was a fun little game, I managed to collect everything from the story and beat the boss. I liked the visual tells for the boss attacks, it was a nice touch. I don't know if it was intentional or not but I loved the ability to crank up the volume  to insane levels and turn it down below 0.

Good stuff!


Pretty cool little game. Had to play around for a bit to find the attack button!


Nice game!  Played it for a good while.   The boss fight is really  cool, and the shop is a nice feature!

Possibly switching the attack to mouse left/right click would help a bit. It's a bit hard to press e while moving, so it may make the movement a little more fluid. 

Other than that though, I had a lot of fun! Well done!


Hmm, my BitDefender antivirus blocked me from opening this particular game, saying that it was a potentially malicious application. What did you use to make this?




What does the button do and why do all these red dudes want to press it?  It's a riddle wrapped in an enigma.  Superb game!


I was confused a bit that i could hit enemies only on one part where it works, also the music gave me flashbacks to 2012 youtube, where on every video there was a Kevin MacLeod's music.  it is good for this gamejam so it is 10/10.
