Potato Yoga

by magnpeas - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Potato Yoga!! This is my first ludum dare and this odd little game was made from a couple of odd ideas. This month, I made a goal of doing lots and lots of yoga, so my boyfriend thought it'd be cool to make a game that showed different yoga poses. Combine that with the potato challenge and my love of terrible drawings, and this lovely game was born. Just use the clues to guess the pose. And don't get mashed!!

At first I didn't know what to do, but there are cryptic clues about the poses.
I don't know Yoga, so I Googled some.
Funny pictures and certainly an original game.

I just checked if you did more Ludum Dares (I like weird games) but this is your first?

Props for using Scratch.

I really, really overthought the first question.

It's mostly a guessing game, but the pictures are clever.

I didn't really understand how the guessing worked, you could have explained it better maybe. Nice pics :D

Interesting twist. I over thought the first one as well, and it was hard to guess the rest. Good way to combine your interests and get people to learn more about yoga.

In Scratch the source is right next to the game. You just click on "download this project" and you can see the script

I have no idea of what to do... Everytime I try to submit some word, I get mashed... You should give some clues for players like me, dont know about yoga.

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.
