Magnumby jsspiegel - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Beneath the surface of New York City, hundreds of pounds of trash are thrown onto subway tracks each day. The evil fashion mogul Mugatu is transforming this trash into high fashion in his new clothing line Derelicte, but at the expense of thousands of underpaid Malaysian child laborers. When the wage-hike supporting Prime Minister of Malaysia comes to watch the fashion show, Mugatu tries to brainwash the really, really, really, really, really ridiculously good-looking model Derek Zoolander to kill the Prime Minister, but Zoolander's rival-turned-friend Hansel thwarts Mugatu's assassination attempt. Mugatu takes matters into his own hands, insulting Zoolander and trying to kill the Prime Minister himself. However, hiding just beneath the surface of Derek Zoolander lies the one thing that stands between the Prime Minister and Mugatu's branded shuriken: Zoolander's ultimate look, Magnum.

Note 2: I've been getting multiple reports of the game not launching or the key presses not registering. I'm super sorry about this, and it really pains me that people are having trouble with it. I've also experienced on my own computer (though thankfully no one has reported a case of this yet) that the game is running extremely slow. I'm doing my best to fix these issues, but I currently have no idea what could be causing them. I acknowledge that I may not be able to fix them, and deeply apologize.
Note 3: Thanks to @Moosefly, I've been able to fix the fact that the game is running so slowly! The downloads available are now both fixed! I think! I hope!

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.
