Not sure I understand, is there just menus to navigate and no game? Minimalism is about doing a lot with a little, not simply doing a little.

I like that you made a game out of trying to unlock menu system secrets, but I wish there was more to it. Also, I set my fly controls to fart and it didn't work.

Unfortunately I discovered after a while of experimentation that the arrow keys reset your progress for some reason. Wasn't compelled to try again.

I liked it although I found that the menus were unresponsive at times and it could've been done better.

Also, here's a tip for using GM: Studio. Once you've created the application, open the index.html file in something like notepad and look for the <title> tag near the top of the page. That lets you change the page title from Created with GameMaker:Studio to whatever you like :)

Slightly too minimal I think, it has potential though.

I tried. I got stuck somewhere in the menu. Cool idea though.

That was wonderful. Once it clicked I loved looking into the rest of the menus.

IS there a game?

The controls were funny, but after a while of not being able to play the game, I just kept refreshing. And then there WAS no game.

A bit odd, but certainly unique. It would be great if you could restart without refreshing the browser. Some audio would help too. You certainly went minimal on this one!

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.
