So my first many attempts at digging got me nothing and when I ran around and saw how big the world was I almost gave up. But finally I hit a bit of silver and persevered. I got enough money from one spot that I upgraded directly to the diamond one and then digging while running was awesome. But the very very beginning was definitely offputting. Nice graphics and UI and I enjoyed the sound effects.

The game pretty slow, didn't get to enjoy most of it. Very simple and it's functional, but not very fun at the moment.

the start is too frustrating and slow. I think if the cost of digging one square was less than a whole bar, it would be a bit more balanced. A few tweaks here and there and a smoother start game though and it would be great fun.

Difficult beginning, but picks up fairly quickly. A very good game overall.

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.
