Put random phrases together in the hope that your wise choice of words will lead your team to victory!

A funny and fun game! I'm curious what the criteria for a good speech is though

Aug 26, 2013 @ 5:08am

Ha, this is great. I love how it went "What a great speech!" despite it clearly being not so :P

Thanks everyone for the great comments!

shard123 and Pierrec - My original idea was to create some kind of rating for each word, and then find the average (or something along those lines), but unfortunately, due to (cough) time constraints (cough - laziness), I couldn't get it done. Right now it's just random. But the original idea is definitely on my to-do list for a post compo version!

Kind of like a weird madlib. Would be even more fun if there was more feedback about what works and what doesn't.

Funny game, good use of the theme, however you could win by spamming words without looking at them.

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.
