by Mysterarts - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my third entry!
(Sorry in advance for my english)

TNAFT (There's No Accounting For Taste), a small web & mobile game made in 8 hours about colors...

I was traveling this weekend! So I decided to do a "high-speed train Ludum Dare". I took advantage of my hours by train to make a very simple game! No time for sounds and well... a very minimalist art.

- JS + Jquery
- PHP + Mysql

Two steps:
1) Vote for your favorite colors
2) Bet on people favorite colors (one minute game)

The game should display fine on smartphone :)

I couldn't stop until I was first in the top scores. Good game and a fun method of figuring out how unique you are (at least in color perception area).

J'ai fait un score moisi par contre mais c'est paske les gens aiment des couleurs dégueulasses.

Cool game, it was quick but I too am on a train, so it worked out well! Touch events were smooth and i liked the bumper effect when selecting a color. I played it on an android phone via the android browser.

I'm not sold on the gameplay, I don't think I "get" it? But I appreciate the polish, details and uniformity of the visuals :)

Very interesting concept and good as a social experiment! Nice touch the social network feature, it fits within the game :-D.

Ouch, I only got 25 points. I guess people prefer more saturated colors, and they don't like shades of purple at all.

It's not boring, but it's not really fun either. Reminds me of the XKCD color naming thing.

Great social experiment! Yet I am a bit sad that people don't agree with my colors :)

Nice job, and good use of the theme! I'm pretty clueless when it comes to colors, and this game measures that accurately, heh. The scoreboard with colors instead of names is a very nice touch.

Love the idea! I always love social experiments in game form. Will be interesting to see what kind of results you get from the run of the game.

Minimal at its best! Nice work - fun and simple. Don't know if I'd play it more than twice.

Like everyone else has been saying, very interesting concept! Very nicely formatted/visually appealing I might add. Great work!

Neat little social game. It would be interesting to see the aggregate results of how well people did on average (i.e. collect the stats as more people play the game). Good job!

Simple, but surprisingly fun! I found that any shade of blue was usually a good bet. Really cool concept!

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.
