This game intends to show you a part of what's behind the scenes of game design.

Although I've got lots of work left, I couldn't miss this LD because I'm just fond of this theme. So, here I am, with a really short game I made in two hours. If only I had the two whole days, I'd have made maaaany more levels, as well as a few sound effects using Acapela or Google Translate ~

This game would be perfect with sounds from google translator :( but, anyway, I like it very much :)

Wow this is very cool. You should teach game design with this.

Very good take on the theme!
Have you thought of putting an audio loop of yourself saying: "Ambient music"

Nice work. Clever, semi-challenging, great sense of humor.

Since it feels like it would be quick to add more elements, I would've liked to see just a few more levels or challenges.

Oh, wow, very clever! Thanks!

I... I think I love you.
Really, I actually laughed while playing this game, and I'm actually thinking of showing your game to people asking me "wtf is game design ?".

Very cool! Someone else pointed me to this game because we had very similar ideas, but very different implementation. I really love the direction you went with it.

Loved the subtle humour.

Many thanks ! Next week (after judging ends), I might make more levels and polish the game (sound effects, background and stuff).
I'll post here when this is done, or maybe submit it on Kongregate.

Very nice game. :) I like how you made the objectives clear with only words. Small reward!

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.
