Who knew that virtual speed dating could be so fun? The premise is wacky and gets more insane as you go further in. My only gripe would be that it can get a bit tedious to start up again, but it does allow for a second glance at that crazy dialogue.

Heh, cute. It may be because I'm dumb, but sometimes I had trouble getting the game to start again after I lost. Not sure if the space bar is supposed to trigger that but the timing seemed inconsistent. Nice job with the music and the roses!

It seems like the major bug we never fixed was that when pressing spacebar to start the game, it will take a few seconds to begin. But if you press spacebar again, it will reset the timer, which can make it confusing.
Thank you all for the positive words!

This game it pretty funny. I enjoyed the dialog. and the fact that you had to mash the spacebar (cutting of the conversations) to get to the dialog options. I recommend randomizing the sequence of dates you encounter to create variety in each game.

Neat take on the theme, and highly silly. Good work!

I was secretly hoping to have a scene at the end, where all the successful dates wound up in the same place at the same time, and exploded the same way they do when you screw up.

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.
