I was really considering making something like this game due to my keto diet. I'm glad someone was on the same page as me! Love it. Thanks!

Neat! Simple, but still amusing.

Great idea. Think the interface should explain more- not just calorie intake, but nutrition to maintain health. People are too caught up on the number of calories and forget about the important of overall nutrition. Would make a great learning game for all ages. Would love to see more.

Great game! It's hard to get iodine though.

Nice idea. Need more foods with iron in them -- where is the spinach and greens? :)

Very funny take on Minimalism. I died of anemia, but I'd gotten down near the target weight. It seemed like it was hard to win without knowing the nutritional values of some of the foods. Nice work!

It was a fun game - and quick to finish so not too much of a grind and I did replay it. :)

Nice game, kinda hard. Died several times. Seemed like the weight loss didn't quite match my expectations, might have helped to just give a calorie counter as well. (But from a gameplay standpoint, maybe it was fine as is.)

Someone should talk to the person doing the shopping! All that damn pie & icecream & pizza, and often not nearly enough carrots!

Great game! Feels like a text adventure. I love the black and white graphics. Certainly fits the minimalist theme. Great work! :D

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.
