How long do ten seconds last? This is exactly the goal of this very very simple game: to understand how much time there is in 10 seconds.
The game is very simple and needs to be played with friends for the maximum fun. Select the number of players, agree to the honor code (YES WE HAVE AN HONOR CODE :) and read the instructions (or don't read them since it is very simple).
Every player is identified by a color and a key he/she needs to keep pressed (yes! keep it pressed when you lift the finger your game ends :). After a short count down (keep the keys pressed!) the game starts.
The goal is very simple: WHEN YOU FEEL THAT 10 SECONDS HAVE PASSED LIFT THE FINGER. At the end, when all the players have lifed their fingers or 20 seconds have passed the game end. The player who gave the best guess wins.
But ... you might get distracted ... by your friends ... or ...
As I said, it is a very very simple game :) but I had a lot of fun playtesting it with friends. I hope you will enjoy it as well.

***NOTE*** the maximum number of players depend on the number of pressed keys the keyboard can recognize: on Mac it recognizes 6 so you can have the maximum fun; on windows, some players could try it only up to four players.

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.
