I don't see why you felt the need to create a game only to offend people. :(

My sincere apologies if you or anyone else finds it offensive. Know that the game itself and it's ending is meant as a joke, not to insult the player but to rib at the theme.

Your game is juvenile and lacks respect for the player. Which is why I laughed so much. Kudos :)

I would have liked to play this, but I can't unzip you file, because it seems to be invalid...

It's difficult to enter into this work because of how the subaqueous qualities of the negative space visually and conceptually activates the essentially transitional quality. I'm troubled by how the metaphorical resonance of the sexual signifier endangers the devious simplicity of the substructure of critical thinking, yet I also find this work menacing/playful because of the way the optical suggestions of the Egyptian motifs brings within the realm of discourse a participation in the critical dialogue of the 90s. 7 out of thirteen thirds anti-stars.

Could not run the game. There was a "No suitable graphics card found, bla bla bla" (the dialog didn't support copy&paste)

Well I think its ok to make fun of the theme and so your game could be funny.

But i don't really understand why to offend the player...

I really want to insult you right now, but I don't think I have time for what might follow, so I'm just going to say "Not bad." and walk away.

Yeah it's minimal and yes I realize that it is a joke at the theme but I have to wonder why would you spend any time at all making an entry if you weren't going to put much effort into it.

Minimal at his maximum.

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.
