Careful Now

by Orangy Tang - Jam Entry

It's a busy day at the hospital and you need to diagnose your patients then create a cure for them by mixing together the correct chemicals.

Be careful though, as you only get one shot at trying to cure each person, so try not to kill anyone.

Careful Now features:

* Realistic fluid simulation! (maybe)
* Accurate cack handedness simulation!
* Physics!
* Thrilling clipboard management!
* Chemistry in action!

Careful Now is not for consumption for children under 5 years old. Do not exceed the recommended dose. If cack handedness persists after closing the game, see a doctor immediately.

Really great concept and the artwork is very nice too. I found the exaggerated motion of the hands was too exaggerated for my tastes, but overall a great entry. Good work :)

Bonus points for innovation and humour. Loved the patients faces as I slowly and methodically killed them off with my potions. I couldn't tell what I was doing with mixing,so just ended up giving people straight from the shelf and seeing what happened. Excellent control system haha. :D

This was totally unexpected :o doctor on a killing spree :D
Really nice physics but carying objects properly was hard. I tried to hold with both hands with no luck. The heating mechanism was cool - it will be nice to have some visual feedback if the liquid is heating up, you can throw some dissoluble pills too :)

Very fun, I really enjoyed "accidentally" killing off my patients.

Very difficult, but a very fun and funny game. Might have killed five patients, but I see it as ridding the world of incurable disease before it spreads!

Good concept! and it was too hard to control hands) and it was difficult, cause i don't know which liquids are in each bootle....

Lol loving the surgeon simulator-ness it had to it, good idea, pretty fun even though I couldnt cure anyone. More visual feedback would be a nice way to let the player know what can interact and what cannot.

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.
