Be Miner.

Not working, I had an assignment to complete during the weekend :(

The UI needed to be built and the ability to interact.

The concept: You are a miner, in front of you is a cave, you go in cave and start to mine, only with your hands. After you get dragged out of the mine by the cave guard, you learn that it contains poisonous gasses, you can only be in their for 10 seconds and will have to wait for 10 more to enter.
Also, wile trying to pry of iron of some ore with your hands, you learned that you need to find a blacksmith.
There is one at the cave, great, you have just enough to buy a ... twig? Also, you see other items available, but you will need to to some mining to get to them, there is a 'New World' item, looks intriguing, you have to get it. you go in and farm some iron with your twig (you will probably have noticed, if the game worked, that you cannot mine some mines.) You upgrade your item's, you are tempted to by the chicken leg, it has so much power compared to the other items, you buy it and try it out: "You on a rock and munch on your chicken leg." ... great... You can exchange the chicken leg for a twig, great, start over.

Well the idea is cool, sad that u didn't finish bro D: but nice try (:

Sounds like a neat idea, shame you didn't finish.

On another note, I think that quick world changing which is in the game could be used for a very cool game mechanic.

Like the idea. Perhaps you could work on it as your own project? This idea has potential.

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.
