This could be really fun and engaging, it just need to be a bit more challenging. Really interesting concept though.

Interesting idea, but really boring.
I don't see the fun in matching genes.

Good mood setting. Music, visuals and gameplay match perfectly. It is a very relaxing game. Good for the evening.

Hi there. Quite liked the futureworld mood, but the game itself I didn't get... seemed to be pretty random.

My results explain why I don't have kids. hauhauahua. Nice idea, it's very unique. My two cents: make the transitions between levels faster.

Very easy game, might be harder to understand if people hasn't learned how punnet squares work haha. Game was too boring for to continue to play after about 5 minutes. Overall, good graphics. Could understand what they were suppose to stimulate. Good audio. Fits the theme. Innovative. I would much prefer to play this game if I was still in high school biology.

VERY ATMOSPHERIC!
Nice choice of music! Fits your game very well!
I also got a little confused with what I had to do, but I understand that the time was short.
Nice job!

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. 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.
