potato audio poetry

by Jacob - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Combining both the familiar appearance of the common potato with the radical contrast of sheer empty space my work explores the rift that exists in our post agrarian society.

The gestalt appearance of this tuberous crop, familiar to many as a common food can serve as a metaphor for the existential struggle of existing in a post industrial society.

The apparent contradiction of audio poetry references the numinous 'eyes' that cover the surface of the food, transposing eyes and ears to provoke introspection.

I think your entry really raises some interesting questions about the nature of reality. For instance, games may be art, but are games games?

There was a potato named Jacob
Who couldn't find anything to make up
So he wrote a neat game
And thus he gained fame
And waited for players to wake up.

Lol, minimalism to the extreme.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
