---Setting and gameplay:
Half the Time is a top-down action game about only having 10 seconds left to live in. The only way to keep on living is to steal time from other people by killing them.
The Mayfly (the character that you control) is specialized in the art of spinning (think "rolling" mechanic from RPGs) and kills people in that way.
An alternative to killing is that if you have a special bond with someone, then you can share your time with them and thus let them keep on living (or take their time and lengthen your own life).
In this harsh world a crippled girl somehow manages to survive and meets a man called the Mayfly. They fall in love and now he uses every day to gather time for her.
You control the Mayfly, but the story is mainly told by the crippled girl.
Arrow keys/WASD to move
Space to spin and advance dialogue.
But read the tutorial!
If you play the game I will love you, but if you also leave a comment I will love you forever.
For people trying to complete the game: the story ends at "good luck" but then you can keep on playing harder and harder waves until you run out of time (post your high score (best day)!).
You should also at some point try to let her time run out.
Wait a moment for it to load on Kongregate. There's probably a grey screen at first.
I consider this a "typo" error: I forgot to make a boolean check before she says I love you too. There are some instances where she is not supposed to say that, and now she doesn't.

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.
