Bar Orders of Magnitude

by LandoSystems - Jam Entry

Why have 1 entire game on one screen when we can have 7 games nested inside one screen. You are a bar owner in Wisconsin. Try to make as much money as you can while the entire universe has it out for you.

Controls are a mix of mouse and keyboard. If pressing Up and Down is moving your browser, You can also use WASD. You can move between zoom levels by clicking on the level on the side bar.

Let no one say that you lack ambition! I was not prepared for the galactic responsibilities of owning a bar in Wisconsin.

How trippy and weird. A strange game that manages to be pretty fun and humorous.

Liked
- How everything was hilarious
- The throwing up scream
- The amount of ambition (7 entirely different mini games is impressive)
- The mini-tutorials (I always knew what to do, which is very important and often overlooked)

Disliked:
- Everything seemed a bit cluttered, hard to focus on 7 games. In the end I would have prefer a smaller selection of games with more polish/little jokes.

Overall very funny though. Nice work!

Really cool concept, but the belch-scream was waaaaaay too loud. You've got some really cool ideas here, but I feel like having to go back to serve the patrons prohibits me from really exploring the other games.
Good work.

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.
