Fly: Generations

by Conry - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You're a newborn fly, but watch out! This is your life and it's ending one second at a time. In 10 seconds you'll be gone, but you still have a chance to pass your genes to next generations...

Let's get reproductive!

Very difficult game to get the random dots and then find a mate in 10 seconds! Made me laugh though!

Heh, that was awesome. I haven't been able to do better than 3 generations, though.

Pretty cool, really interesting concept. I like the sound for picking up food.

Cool idea, the gameplay is fun, but a bit too hard. Made it to 3 generations. :)

Heh, I can imagine it being hard to be good at it from the get-go, but I guess it's not that bad. It just requires some practice. After two days of testing I myself can make it to 8th generation without much of a problem ;)

Really funny game! I like the perspective of a fly live.

I liked the graphics. Never managed to mate, even when I approached another horny fly and pressed Q nothing happened.

Strangely compelling sound effects! Very nice and gross!

Hilarious idea. Wonderful interpretation of the theme. Stressful gameplay. Apparently I didn't have java installed...

Terrific idea and game mechanic! The trick is to not hesitate to sprint.
Awesome work!

Great game! Unique concept, nice graphics and funny sound effects. Some fly flying sounds would be nice.

I like it!

Heheh, nice application of the theme and cool idea. However it felt profoundly unfair when I was chasing down some food, only to have a fly spawn out of nowhere and steal it from me!! >:P Still though, very cool, and fun to play.

It was pretty fun! Neat concept.

I got to 5 generations. It was a pretty cute concept. The second I grab one food, I sprint to get more, and repeat until I mate.

Very cool game! I missed the part of the instructions where it said press Q, so I was very confused for a while, but after realizing what I had to do, it was actually fun. Nice take on the them, and sublime sound effects ;)

I'm glad this game doesn't have smellovision. Quite innovative, nice graphical style and overall it's a fun quirky game! Show it off to your friends :D

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.
