THE GAME IS DONE IN JAVA! DON'T NEED WINDOWS TO PLAY IT! :)
--------- HOW TO PLAY ----------
UNZIP IT TO A FOLDER, DON'T PLAY OFF THE RAR OR IT'LL THROW AN ERROR!
Sounds done on the mic + Audacity.
Graphics all done by pixel, Paint.
Netbeans + LibGDX.
Very, very, very unfinished. I only started about 20 hours after the compo had started, because I had no ideas. When I did start, 95% of the time was spent drawing the corn, carrots, and the rest of the art. I'd say, total, not even 20% of my total work time was on coding!
Was aiming to be a fun bullethell, in which each wave was actually planned, not randomized, with several fun mechanics around the 10 seconds... included googly eyes and the corn, with a huge laser. I had planned a boss that would had some trick to beat, too.
That big popcorn field to the right was supposed to be an interface showing stuff like Lives, current ammo, etc... oh well.
Very sad I didn't do half what I intended to, but at least I submitted it :)
--------- HOW TO PLAY ----------
The gist of the game as it is: You need only to survive the waves. Move with the arrow keys.
To help lessen your chance of dying, you can shoot popcorn with C to destroy enemy bullets alone, not the enemies themselves.
The waves last 10 seconds, followed by 10 second breaks!
You also only get to die 10 times before you lose*
(You can press F1 to toggle hitboxes if you're curious. Corn's hitbox is that way on purpose)

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.
