I created a campfire "simulator" where you find wood and build a bigger fire, then I started pulling in elements from the weekend (music, woods, etc). Originally, you were going to have to build the fire big enough to drive away the "evil eyes" between you and the next pool of moonlight, then do so again down the path, leading you to the building on top where the music is coming from.

But then I had a severe allergy attack! And I don't have any energy left. :(

I didn't notice where the fire pit was a first, so first thing I did was run up to the ominous eyes. Very atmospheric.

Very interesting atmosphere, and the music is very nice.

I like it, good concept and solid execution of the core mechanic. Sorry to hear about your allergy attack, but it seems like you got pretty close to what you envisioned.

I hear music in the distance! Cool idea, too bad you didn't get more done on it.

LOL, I won't question the irony of a wilderness fire simulator that gives the dev an allergy attack... Love the atmosphere and mechanics in this one.

Fun just wish it was longer.

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.
