Users have to have matlab to play the game. Six in a row wins.

I don't have matlab but points for using an obscure (to me) dev system.

This is really, really challenging... When stupid mistakes are made is the only time either side ever gets an advantage, and even then it's usually easy to fix.

I agree with Dark Acre Jack. Points for making a game in Matlab.

Sorry, dude. Don't have matlab. Cool concept though.

WOW!!! Never thought that making a game with matlab was possible but you did it!

No matlab, but wouldn't a better name be connect 6?

While it's interesting that you made this in matlab... ...don't expect most of us to even have access to it. Can't review it because of it! O.o

Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:26am

I'll give this an additional point for daring to make it in Matlab. Very innovative concept.

I don't have matlab, but kudos for making a game in it. Are there any Matlab development communities you could tell about this game? I'd love for you to find an audience.

Sorry, don't want to bother with ssh or bittorrent right now.

Just going to chime in that it is amazing you made a game in Matlab, but I can't play it.

Good job!

Minimalism = the smallest possible audience for your game. ;) I'm very impressed you actually built a matlab game for the 48h. 5 stars for theme. :D

Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:17am

Couldn't play the game, but I you score high for theme and humour. (and sympathy points from someone with similar problems)

I found the game fun, annoying that I had to get MatLab but fun :)

A game in matlab? Crap, I wish my old laptop was still around to try it.

Matlab???? Wish I was still in college when I had a student license for it. Looks fun though.

Don't know Matlab.

I'm not sure if your game works the same way, but I made something similar to this once. You had to get 5 in a row as opposed to 6.

Didn't you actually do the opposite of the theme?!
You maximized the actual Tic-Tac-Toe-concept.
Fun to play tho!

Finally, having Matlab installed paid off!

Surely should make a game in snobol4 to get more kudos ?

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.
