Funny idea, but hard to play. For me it is like a shooter. You have to aim carefully

Great work! I had a lot of fun playing this. I just wish the overlap didn't happen until a later level. It made it hard to click what i wanted with a touch pad.

I love the music and concept. this was a real fun play.

Love the idea of making a game around the elevator pitch. 10 seconds is a bit short to both size up the investor AND to track all the buzzwords spinning around. Maybe give a short 2 second count down before starting so you can size up your investor? BTW, when can I expect my funds? ;)

I really dug this. Hilarious concept well executed. You started feeling the pressure instantly.

Really fun to play. Great Idea, could use some more depth, maybe some more buzzwords so that is not that repetitive.

I liked the concept however the whole 3d gameplay doesnt really fit very nice into something that could easily be 2D. If you can, check out my entry as well:

Nice game, quite silly. It seemed you didn't have much variation in the types of people, but that's to be expected with a LD game, isn't it?

Hahaha, this is an awesome idea :)Good play on the theme.
The description of the buzzwords to choose from could be a little more vissible.
There's alot of potential here. :)

A really good idea, nice and fast paced. Was a little difficult to click on some of the bubbles but a great little game!

Hilarious concept! But I had problems clicking the words I wanted, because the game doesn't seem to recognize correctly over which word the mouse is hovering.

jujule says ...

Great idea. I imagine it was on purpose but it was really difficult for me to pick to buzz words I wanted because of the movement. I am not sure aligning them in a static list ( maybe adding some more too ) would make the challenge easier.
My score : $331.685

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.
