    The theme is…

      My game: Lazy Confetti Lazor
      i screwed up and had to start over after 30min so it’s actually made in the remaining time :P

      (lol, the id is 48)
      I made it in 47 mnutes, so close…

      Aw… I missed it.

      Can you make it to the top of a pile of gears?

      Used much more than 48 minutes, still submitting. I worked on it on and off, and it probably took 3 hours total. My theme was “The earth is flat”.


      thanks for this awesome challenge, SoS, it was tons of fun =)

    9. here’s mine, press space :)

      was fun, I’ll probably polish this up a little too :)

      Here’s mine, making it was a great way to kill time while my chilli cooked.
      Left and right control the guy, the win condition (getting to the top) has never been tested, it might work.

      Has nothing to do with Partial Recall but i’m damn proud of what I did in 48 minutes:


    13. Here’s my game!


      Theme was “constant motion” or “can’t stop”. I forgot. Who cares, it’s awesome-tastic!


    14. Dan C says:

      Here’s mine:


      The theme was “obscure sports”, but I already planned to make this game and I just clicked refresh until I got a theme that matched :).

      I went over the time limit. It took me 76 minutes to make.

    15. Fififox says:

      There it is: “Noir Death”, because those were the two themes I got:


      I’m kinda happy with this game… Making C++ games in a short time is a challenge I enjoy very much, and I’ve had a lot of fun (like for the 0h game jam) ! The game in itself is hard (nearly impossible?) to win, but I think that’s how it had to be done (hopefully)…

      Hope you like it (at least, I hope you’ll find out how to play it) ! :P

    16. ratking says:

      Theme was “Pixel”, btw.

    17. digital_sorceress says:

      here’s mine, better late than never :P


    18. WOW!!!!! Definitely a fun challenge… I’ll admit, I didn’t use the theme (any of the random ones I saw) I went into this with a specific game in mind… And even then it wasn’t any kind of easy! Congrats to all that finished at all! Getting some game development going is a prize of it’s own:

      CRUSH YOUR OWN ADVENTURE! Whack-a-Mole meets Choose Your Own Adventure!


    19. PacifistGames says:

      Finished my nanoLD game!
      It’s called “16”. The theme I got is “backwards”.
      Finished in about twice the time, but was having graphics card issues…
      Arrow keys move, don’t get hit, controls flip every 16 seconds.

      Let me know what you think/what you scored!

      I’m late but here’s mine. Nanojump – a jumping game… made in 53 minutes (10 minutes spent fiddling with sound before realising the speakers weren’t plugged in.)


    22. binary_girl says:
