Smart little game. Very competent and focused! I liked the old graphics and the sound-cues were good. the customer grunts told me something was wrong when I delivered them postage late. How does it calculate time passed to get customer satisfaction? From the time the letter is produced or after it is sorted? I'm inclined to think the former. 39/40 packages delivered, 17/28 satisfied customers. How bad am I? :P

Very fun! The sounds are enjoyable and the experience is very tactile. Some ways into it I feel like I start getting a bunch of letters which should match a symbol but I get the unsatisfied sound out. I'm not sure if that's a bug or if the symbols are subtly wrong and I can't tell.

Very funny, especially the "human-made" sound effects!
The graphics are nice too.
The game is short, simple to understand. Maybe some visual indication that some envelopes have been waiting for some time already would help prioritize them.
Good experience overall.

This is a great little game. Very creative, humorous and fun. Very well built up as well, starting slow so that you get a chance to understand how to play the game and start to recognize the shapes that are yours, and then builds up in intensity. Great curve, super nice game!

A simple mechanic that is executed very well, nice use
of the theme as well. Had fun with this one!

I had to play it through again - love the stats at the end. 90/93, 56/57, 10.92s. Contender for world record?

Super simple, but very neat and polished. After having heard nothing but sfxr sound effects so far, your sound effects really cracked me up. Bonus points for that, a really nice touch!

Reasonable game - not too ambitious, and does what it does perfectly. Would love to see this on mobile - I think the swiping might feel better on a touch-screen than a mouse.

Nice game. Maybe add a counter for how many mail is delivered successfully, how many mail is lost?

Simple and fun. Does what it wants well and doesn't try to be anything grandiose! Loved the sound effects!

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.
