******** Story ********
The mysterious 10-second horde is rampaging outside the city gates, and nobody feels motivated enough to take the fight to them. Nobody except the world's greatest life coach squire Taen, and her trusted Hero Saeck!
Brave the 10-second spawning hordes for loot and glory! Upgrade your Hero and your Motivational skills!
******** Tips ********
1: Health, armor and weapons are good things to upgrade first!
2: Upgrading the hero speed makes the enemies harder, faster. It may be a good idea to take it slow in the beginning!
3: If you try to pick up a nearby gold coin or similar, the Squire will drop the lowest value loot currently in her inventory, if it's worth less and the inventory is full!
4: Stay behind the hero! The squire is frail and is easily defeated. If the squire is defeated, you lose the loot in your inventory :(
5: The squire can pick up loot from a little distance, don't be a zero and stay behind your Hero!

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.
