Sorry, all I get is a blank blue screen. I'm running latest Firefox & flash player on Win7 64-bit if that helps.

@s0ulcrusher Sorry about that still had a typo left in my code, it was trying to load an island that didn't exist. It should also work on Firefox.

It's hard to know where the boat are going in the beginning, but I liked the game style! Waiting the post-compo version! :)

Could have been cool if it was finished. I like the idea of mixing minimalism with wind waker.

I got to an island and went over it and that was my story. Good start seems like it could be interesting.

seemed like i might be a cool concept... but i couldn't really figure out what i was supposed to be doing... i liked the graphical style though.. it reminded me of startropics sort of...

potatoes are nightshades...

Interesting idea. When I got to the island, the boat kept going right over it though ;)

Nice boat trail. But it's hard to know if the boat is moving, and there's nothing to do apparently. Also it's strange how the boat can only go up.

I didn't get to see that title screen, but I'm looking forward to the post-compo game.

Looks interesting, but not a lot to do at the moment...

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.
