Man! the time really goes by while we are packaging things! :P

Liked the game... hated the crane! Stupid Crane, get out of my way! I need to confirm where is my next button! :P

Very cool game! Pretty unique idea, and the gameplay is challenging and fun. Great work!

Not very original, but fun ! Well done, and with a few funny ideas.

Another game in one of my favourite genres: "Mundane Tasks that Somehow Become Awesome Games". This was great! I really liked the art style most of all, and the mechanics were tight, everything fit together well.

Very cool! It would be nice to see how much time you have left.

Nice little idea, well executed. Just enough stuff to remember, without feeling overwhelming.

Nice job all around. Fast, fluid movement. Great use of the theme. Sound was excellent.

I just moved, so I can't say packing stuff is my favourite thing in the world;)

Game was excellent though:)

Short, but well implemented. I like the packing tape noise.

My wife made a "Mum plays..." of this game:

Very fun to play. It reminded me a little of Papers Please. I hope you will continiue working on it and publish it!

I really love the concept.
Reminds me a bit of papers please.
I'd pursue this idea for a post compo version!

Hi there. Well it's a very competent 'boring job' simulator. Shipped three packages first attempt, failed to close first box though! Like the whole approach, but didn't enjoy playing much. Great sounds and visuals.

Fun and simple. Not too much to it but the presentation is quite polished!

Needs to be more frantic. I like the sealing of the box. Lose the part about the crane moving, and I think you'll have a more fun game. That's just me though.

I always get sucked in to playing these types of games for hours. Nicely done!

Fun game! I played a couple times and loved that moment at the end where time is almost up and you're trying to ship that last package and get points.

Very fun idea, good time killer game. Well done! :)

Fun game. This would lend itself well to a Paper's Please type story. Nice work.

Dec 17, 2014 @ 6:12am

I have a client who would like this game for your company. I liked.

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.
