Traffic Jam

by zamza - Jam Entry

Control the flow of traffic so that cars don't run into each other. Using less signs to control traffic earns you more points, so try to keep the cars under control using as few signs as possible.

To change the direction of traffic from an intersection, click on a sign and then click a button to set the direction that cars go after hitting this intersection. You can use the arrow keys or WASD to move the camera as well.

Using less signs earns you more points, so try to control traffic as efficiently as possible.

Looks cool but I think it is broken? It tells me game over straight away and there are errors in the console. Cars are flying everywhere XD

There are exceptions being shown in the developer console. The car was following the signs and then stopped.

Interesting idea but it seems very broken. The cars started off by slowly tumbling off the road and moving sideways. Managed to get one car to follow the signs but it just stopped after a while.

I like routing games, but this one is unfinished. I think you should not zoom in so far you can't see where the cars are going. I like the music.

Well, nothing special. Not even so good.
First, the console seems to be broken or something. The car looks really strange in the curves.
Anyway, the game idea itself seems great.

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.
