The Turmeric Jam Jar's Only Game.by local minimum - Jam Entry
We went all out on lush assets in this puzzle platformer. You play the spare-part mechanized doll with a sole purpose in life: To get a friend. But the only inhabitants you meet are quite dull or frankly not that interested in you.
You decide to redeem the hopeless situation with constructing a golem made out of bits and pieces that you find on your journey.
The instructions are minimal in the game, but here's a reiteration of the controls:
Arrows navigate you, mostly left and right. On a very special occasion you will use up.
Space is there for jumpy fun and Alt to interact with the world.
As promised, the game contains No Violence, No Sexism and No Cats (almost).
We also hear that we needed a frog in the game to make it whole. So since we did put a frog in it, we expect you to be happy!
The people who made it in order of IRL appearance:
Martin, Hanne, Anna-Maja, BjÃ¶rn, Skyman, Jenny.
--- EDIT ---
Post-Jam version uploaded that fixes issues with character control in original entry and adds tons of sounds, animations, and some particle systems. This is more or less how we hoped it would be!
Of course, if you are rating, you should play the original version.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
