Micro Pigment

Make sure to read the instructions at the titlescreen. For gamepad controls, the same description applies but you use the left analog stick, and the X button (360 controller reference)

The exe build link contains all platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) to choose from. Please use chrome or firefox for best
game experience for the web version.

Small audio bug at game over. Sorry about that, will fix it once the jam is over. Turn your speakers off, after playing it once with audio for now.

Eat the blue and green things with the A key held then released. > Avoid the red things or they will kill you. Thats it.

The goal is to get the longest spawn chain and survival time as possible.

It's a bit frustrating but quite fun when you understand how to play. When you press and release A you end up being different size every time, is that intentional?

I forgot to put a lock on the scaling down, so it doesn't go past a certain scale. That's why you see inconsistency in it. Will fix it asap.

Nice idea. I like the graphical style of the player-pigment. The music is quite nice too

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.
