Potatooooo ! Bonne idée de baser le gameplay sur les mouvements de souris. Par contre, certaines fois j'aurai cru que mes placements était perfect, mais bon j'ai jamais été très très doué pour jouer avec Mr Patate !

I really like the fact that our slightest move could have consequence on our endeavor.
Oh, assembly line seems a constant in your games, is there a reason ?

Thanks for your comments.

@lanz : Yes, this is the idea of game-play : The assembly-line walk as your mouse movement. So you dont have to speed, but need accurate and minimize (= minimalist) your movements.

@Colapsydo : Last time it was a conveyor belt, and player had to destroy something. Here you have to build something, so... I need a fresh idea next time ! XD

:D Very cool idea! Indeed minimalistic ^^ he screen, that showed you your work was cool. It took me a while to realize, that moving the cursor also moved the conveyor. Good work!

Didn't realise the mouse-movement=conveyor belt movement until I tried again, interesting idea and use of theme!

@Tifu : I think it would have been more evident if I could make a background animation (which would have also kept pace with mouse movements) It would take me an hour or two more ...

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.
