by FazedGames - Jam Entry

Welcome to Fazed, the game where you play as a homeless man searching out the next bottle of booze. Avoid obstacles or you'll collapse before you get back to your cardboard box.

Can you maintain and concentrate under greater levels of alcohol, will Obama ever bring change?


left and right to stumble to avoid anything that is't a bottle of booze!

The game is different each time you play, so you can never get bored of drinking!

Interesting spin to bring a political figure/theme into your game. Tried to figure out if you are trying to say if drunks support Obama or that those who support Obama will become drunks. It does speak to a bleak view of the present/future.
The game itself serves to underscore that bleakness quite well in visual tones/gameplay.

On the other hand, it doesn't seem to fit the minimalism theme very well.
A bit surprised no-one has commented yet - perhaps in fear of a flame war.

As a professional drunkard I would like to express my gratitude for someone bringing to light the horrible plight that is trying to walk while drunk. Let alone the impossibility of finding one's drink. Hurrah, good sir!

You could have done a better job syncing the animation to character movement.

My overall thought during the game was "what the hell am I playing?" XD

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.
