This is my first complete game. In the spirt of minimalism I decided to make a game using as few assets as possible.

Created in python 3.2 with pygame 1.9.2.

Windows only, unfortunately. Installers for the required python and pygame modules are included. Sorry about using those.

File Factory wouldn't let me download this. Maybe try hosting somewhere else?

Discovering how to play through trial and error was fun. The minimalism in the game is also pretty obvious and the game can get quite challenging at times. The images produced were also quite cool.

But filefactory and the installation process was a pain in the ass that I think also installed several unwarranted files. You might want to look into that and maybe use another method.

Nice! It's sort of a pain that you have to install python. If you want an alternative, I'd recommend this: http://www.pygame.org/wiki/Pygame2exe (which would count as a port in my book).
I would also look into a new file hosting service if I were you.

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.
