I don't know if you're aware of this, but it's possible to just mash either true or false and just run your score up without repercussion

Yes, but to get a score over 60 you will need to try.

The text was kind of hard to read with the backgrond.
Perhaps put a background box of text and make text bigger.

was amusing to play

I had a hard time reading the text as well.

Sorry about that. I didn't have much time to work on a text rendering system that looks any bit good. And my skill with drawing/making stuff look good is honestly the worst :P

Maybe you could make it so when you get a question wrong, you lose one or two points? That way, it would be worse for the player to mash one answer.

The text didn't mesh well with the background, but it was interesting either way.

really hard to read text, sounds not bad, no music. good job anyway.

Nice concept, love trivia games. As other have mentioned the font choice wasn't the best idea for readability but for 8 hours, nice one!

Not so much to say about. I guess that, even though it was only a guessing game, it could've looked better and cleaner.

Thanks a lot for the comment on my game! I'm really sorry that I cannot rate/review your game too: I don't like trivia games at all and I feel it would be unfair to judge you then. Congratulations on finishing your first LD entry though!

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.
