10 seconds to...SAVE THE WORLD!

by sidious - Jam Entry

You've found a bomb. It's going to blow up the world. There are 10 seconds left on the timer. You have wire cutters, a hammer, a paper clip, a pink ball of yarn, and a cold can of PBR beer.

What do you do? What. do. you. Do!?

Interesting text game. Not easy to play if you are a slow typer or have a lousy keyboard. 20 possible endings!? I could only find 1. I wish there were more obvious hints or interactions.

Very valid point Ritz. I definitely think we could've spent more time accounting for more possible user input permutations, as well as provide the user with some hints/feedback based on their input. Something to consider for the sequel :).

Funny little game. But isn't that the clock ticking sound from the TV series 24?

Nice sounds, good visuals. Instructions would have been nice. 5/10

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.
