Pretty cool short game. To bad there is no sound as for feedback. The game does work well and the theme is apparent.

Overall liked the game. Was pretty short. Consider having different cities/stories. Also consider displaying the pictures taken at the end.

Nice approach to the theme. In it current state the game lacks some more mechanics to be really fun. Worth expanding!

I liked the concept, but it was a bit short. I liked the camera controls with the mouse. Very smooth.

Interesting take on the theme. I managed to win the game. I liked the camera battery charging UI and pause between pictures.

Fun, and good use of the theme! I like the picture-taking mechanic.

Funny and entertaining game! Nice animations and nice to see a mayor with a carbine rifle. Good game, too bad there's no sound.

It was shot but the execution is really good. In the city the car go under one of the building.

Not bad. This isn't a mechanic I've seen too often, and you implemented it pretty well. The scenes were short, and you didn't have a whole lot of real conflict other than waiting, but it wasn't a bad implementation.

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.
