Stock Madness

by c0nfused - Jam Entry

This is a madcap stock trading simulator you get one minute to make as much money as you can in a randomly determined market. We tried to make it have as many moving parts as possible. Scoring is tied to how many actions you perform so try to be doing things constantly.

I find shouting helps stock performance.

It ended up being a tough weekend for getting our schedules to sync and our game idea was pretty limiting so in the end things are imperfect at best.

This is a very...different idea, lol. Was great fun, though more keyboard controls to allow faster interaction would be nice.

Overall, a fun and interesting game. Strangely enough, I've never seen a stock market game before. Sound effects could have used a bit more work...

Very fun and novel idea, lol! Never play any game like this before. Could be a very promising idea if polished, good job!

It's an interesting idea, but there needs to be some additional channel of information to interpret for what stocks might do next (like news stories or rumors, etc)

Neat idea! I think it was just a little _too_ fast-paced, most of the stocks had died before I even figured out what was going on :P

Really liked it! Might bump it up to a minute thirty or two minutes.

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.
