I like how, if you change focus from the game, it automatically pauses. I'd hate for my hard earned rank to dissipate while I was checking my e-mail!

Should belong to the Jam division (the background photo), but whatever. Totally minimalistic.

The facial expressions and dialogue tickled me. If you continue to develop this, have you considered an evolution of the instruction, input, and response?

Haha, hilarious game. Love the potato dialog!

Can't put it in the compo if you didn't create the assets during the jam, sorry. (Entertaining, though.)

Wrong theme?
Fun little game, I like the rhythmic changes (coming along with mood changes for the potato king).

Hehe, I'm a perfect potato idiot. I stopped around 300.
This experience is as fun as weird. I think I'm going to eat potatoes at lunch for vengeance.

Was anyone else slightly disturbed by the mirrored potato background? *potatowhisper* What was that? Are you there potato? I... Obey....

Alright... :D
I didn't make a rating for the graphics because of the compo rules.

Weird, but also not a game.

It was nice to slap your face into the ground though.

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.
