I might still have time, but I think this is what I want from the game. No need to add anything fancy. It meets the minimalism theme by having a minimalistic art style (yes, that's a legit thing...it encompasses pixel art, but I also tried to incorporate the main media minimalism bit).

You play as a painter who has to paint over graffiti that's been scattered around a city built on a city. Very...minimalistic :9 .

Reminds me of Super Mario Sunshine!

I like the game idea of cleaning up the graffiti visually it fits the theme well. I had a few issues with the ladders and stairs but otherwise it played well.

I liked the graphics in this a lot. The controls were pretty stiff and it was hard to find out what parts of the environment were climbable, but I appreciated that I moved quickly, at least. :) I think I got all the graffiti, but then it just pointed left and I couldn't figure out whether there was anything left to do? Did I win? :)

I think this might be a reverse Mark Ecko! Nice

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.
