I just started chucking things out the window anticipating victory! Liked the graphical style.

Existential post modern horror. I feel like I'm trapped in the middle of a dadaist film.

Sadly it seems that I can't start it on my Win XP, 32-bit laptop. :( Don't get a error message though.

I launch the game. I am enjoying the wonderful visual portion of the game. Oh, I can pick things up. I am wondering why throwing things out the window isn't getting boring when I hear knocking at the door. I rush to throw everything out the window in a frantic rage, but don't get everything out the window in time. Giraffe-Mother enters and cuts me off in my tracks. She corners me between the couch and herself, forcing me to restart the game.

Second time, I try to get everything out the window before Giraffe-Mother enters. I fail, because there is not nearly enough time to get everything out before she enters. This time I run around the room without stopping, throwing things out the window as I avoid the scary creature following me (or at least I think it was following me). I notice it has stopped following me so I casually throw the rest of my things out the window. Game over. I win this time.

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.
