Jeez, it's stressful! You know a game's sucking you in when you can't do 8 * 6 in your head.

Very unique and tense. The keyboard controls were responsive which is pretty much all you can ask for from a game like this. Overall, very good.

A cute little wargame. You should have more screenshots. I liked the terminal feel (good font). Questions weren't too hard, but good enough that I was still thinking on my feet.

The intro was too slow.

Great idea and nicely done!

Stressful, but surprisingly fun. I think I saved the world.

Very cool! I loved the Matrix effect in the intro.

Nice game.

The flashing at the right edge and around the text entry was pretty annoying though.

The flashing graphics was annoying. Interesting puzzle game.

I was getting a flickery border to the window - not sure if this was intended? The intro was very slow, but once I got into the game, it was actually pretty gripping. It's surprising how much of a difference just adding a timer can make to something...

For being entirely text based, this game has a lot of personality. Simple word puzzles were pretty fun. Gameplay was actually kind of stressful thanks to that timer! Ending made me laugh lol

Ha! The joke is on you, 'cause I hacked your game (and got the answers)!

The story is kinda silly, but once you start the challenge, you NEED to end it. Cool entry!

Didn't get any flashing graphical glitch on my end so I'm not sure what that's about. This game was a lot of fun. Better than most of the graphically heavy games that people have made.

very very noce! 5 stars for mood!

Very fun! It took me far too long to solve the first puzzle, my first thought was Helium (2) + 110, and the real solution took me a while.

Nice little game. I got really confused before the end, so good job! The intro felt rather slow, but the actual game was fine.

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.
