Excellent work on the TV show content. Every single one left a grin on my face.

Each TV channel is hilarious in its own way. The graphics are great and it is just overall a really well done game. Good job!

I have some mixed feelings about this because I don't see the "gameplay," per say. But every channel had me in stitches and I can't NOT give it a great score just for that.

This could probably replace my TV. Nice work on the game too.

I love that zombie movie/show! :)
Awesome idea, and excellent work on the execution - I love the graphics (your drawing feels like Dan Paladin from the Behemoth studio). Outstanding sounds effect too, and very humorous content. While I won't play this for hours, I had a big smile on face for several minutes playing it ;)

Fun and good sound / graphic. Well done.

But as a game concept... I don't know... But hey, it's fun for a short time period :)

And again... and again... and again... Perfect! This is real fun here. I love how you made fun of modern TV (or at least I perceived it that way) by simply making me click again and again to discover more of your little jokes while getting crazy and angry at bad signals and commercials. By doing so, I was actually becoming a brainless TV watcher 8) Brilliant.

Really captures the felling of endlessly browsing the disappointment of TV. Awesome interpretation of the theme.

This is a really cool concept. Channels, art and audio went really well together. Would have like a faster pace, but that's probably just me. Overall, really good work. Thanks!

First Ludum Dare 31 game to actually make me laugh, nice one :P

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
