One of my favourite games in the jam so far - why aren't there more comments here? SUCH a polished and neat idea, really funny, love the characters, the gameplay and pretty much everything. Please make it into a bigger game!

This is the best game I've played this Ludum Dare hands down. It's unbelievable how much your team was able get done in 72 hours.

Every fit together like a glove, the art (not my paintings XD), the music, voices, and the mechanics.

Your game is, as always, very innovative and extremely polished! Although I absolutely sucked at drawing it's a really fun game. A bit stressful as well. Great work!

Looks cool, good job.

This was a great idea. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any money. :(

Maybe it was just because I was playing on a laptop with a touchpad though. The music was nice, but I was mentally starting to get frustrated with the paintbucket and my lack of mixing skills by Customer 3.

Great game. You might have a winner on your hands.

Wow, this game is really phenomenal considering it is made within such a short time. And there is some skill curve to mastering this game, such as thinking fast to pick tools quickly, making the right color, etc. Oh, the coloring combination is an amazing mechanics!

Wow, my lady and I had quite a time playing this one. I was pretty terrible at the mixing. Well, and the drawing. She crushed me! A+ job, this was really slick and fun. A strong vision fully realized.

This is really awesome, just loving it.
Best way to paint is using only the paint bucket :D

Dec 24, 2014 @ 6:56pm

Absolutely hilarious! Is there an option to export and save the gallery? I'm kinda proud of some of my creations. :D

I've not encountered that moment yet, but I believe it gets repetitive after some time. Have you tried combining more parts randomly for greater replayability? (or do yo already?)

<p style="display: none;"><a href="">Happy New Year 2019</a>the first celebration of the year is just a couple of days ahead of us. And we are highly excited and going crazy about it. Of course, going crazy about it holds a lot of reasons. Like, first of all, it is the day which is a start to a new year. As well as it is the time when we do make resolutions and try our best to stick with it. In addition to that, it is another big celebration after the Christmas. And we all want to party our heart out on this day.</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.
