Time Rolls On

by cappelnord - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well yeah, not very proud of this one but my other idea didn't work out at all and I could finish this in very little time.

There is a little margin, so you don't have to hit exactly 10 seconds - you still have to be quite right but it's not impossible! Due to network lag it's probably easier to beat in Europe.

It's Multiplayer by Design!

The page is shared between all users so you only can win if no one else is trying. You being the only one in the world on this site is a winning condition.

Or if you're feeling like a jerk you can prevent everybody from winning ;)

I like it, but it's a bit frustrating being off by 0.4 seconds. And network lag is an issue.

like the concept but it is impossible to win with people checking all the games

Very funny, very unique idea. Maybe needs a little polish, and check your win screen; I think it's broken but I got the jist of it.

The only winning move is (for all others) not to play?

Lag and such things spoil it a bit, but it's a nice idea and well presented. :)

Good idea but network lag is kind of a problem, maybe you should have done an "offline" version too

@DanteZack93: Offline-Play would miss the multiplayer/shared resource aspect completely.

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.
