Who cares zombie-swingers from Venus on the Yellow Submarine?

by bukt - Jam Entry

Sup! We are <Who Cares team?> and here is our new game: <Who cares blah-blah-blah>.

In this game you are an TCP-packet. And you should reach distant device in TTL == 10 seconds. Sounds easy, right? But you will shame the guy, that setted up LAN wires. But don't fall in despair too early: you have three lifes for each packet and three more levels to play.

Those brave ones, who pass the game will be able to immortalize their names in the hall of fame.

And last one. Do you know that in fact no one care zombie-swingers, even if they came from Venus in the Yellow submarine? Now you do.

Have fun :)

What a title :) Cool idea, I like that the controls were all keyboard. The entire thing was a little cumbersome, kind of like setting up a real network! Good Job.

love the take on the theme. I definitely enjoyed playing it. it was slightly awkward to keep track of which keys mapped to which destinations at first, but I go the hang of it after a few tries. very nicely done, overall

Really interesting! Could have used with snappier movement through the connections, but maybe that was the point? Giving you 5/5 on Mood!

It's the great idea! I wish to have a bit more levels and some differences on the way to the win.

Intriguing idea. Nice graphics and decent sound. I actually liked that it was a bit clunky to play, working out which keys go to which nodes and stuff, it adds something to it somehow.

Great graphics, sound and really innovative idea. Found it a bit trial and error at times but the controls work well with the idea behind the game

Great premise! Certainly very different than most games.

Nice work!

Really awesome game idea! It was a little strange and by the end I'm still not entirely sure how exactly everything connects, but I kept on playing. Loved the little joke about the "any" key. Great job!

Simply amazing. Nothing I could say here would do your game justice. I will say that you definitely know your target audience and this game had so many small, but great details. Gave you 5/5 in 6 categories and that is extremely high praise coming from me as I am quite strict with voting. The only downside to this game is that it will inevitably place higher than mine in judging. Well done.

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.
