The Python source code is included in the src/ folder (run to launch). Additionally, an executable created with pygame2exe is available for Windows users in the dist/ folder.

Requires Python and Pygame (unless you use the Windows exe). I tested with Python 2.7 and Pygame 1.9.1, and tested the exe in a Windows XP virtual machine.

Controls/objectives are displayed on launch and are also available in the README file.

If you have any problems let me know and I will attempt to solve them.

This is great! I really like the pacing of it. I especially like the arrow pointing to the clocks off screen, that's a nice touch. Overall well done!

It was a fun game. For some reason, it lagged when I set off a bomb. I'm not really sure why. Played it a few times. When I lost, I had to close it out an open it back up. I couldn't figure out a key that reset the game.

Took me a while to figure out that the arrow was meant to show me the next clock :P

I think it's unfair that the red guys don't expire after 10 seconds like the player does. Anyhow, nice little game, a key to restart would be great (apart from restarting it that is)

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 ( 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.
