WELLFARE

by DeathBySnail - Compo Entry

You're a wishing well. People come to you in need and ask for wishes to be granted. However, your ability to fulfill them is often limited, due to the fact that wells are not particularly suited to human communication and all the nuances which come with it.

Listen to a plea, press a button, watch an outcome.

It's a pretty short and simple game.

I don't know... this thing is awesome! Great humour and the graphics and the sound just work with the game. Doesn't seem like there's any clearly defined rules or goals, but playing it definitely was a fun experience. Simple, yes, but somehow the entire mix just works great.

As I moved my cursor over the "Make it rain" button and proceeded to click on it I realized the pun if it would actually "rain"
I wasn't dissapointed! I laughed!
Great game! :D

Interesting! It's purely a choice based narrative, and seems to really have a lot of options, so well done on the writing :)

Feels like I want there to be more of a mechanic... Personally. But well (lol) it's ok :)

You made me laugh.
Nice sound track too.
:)

This game is ****ing great! Loved it so much, couldn't wait for each new character to appear. :D

The music fit perfectly as well. One of my favourites this LD so far. ;)

That was silly, charming, and a refreshing change to the normal LD game genres. I liked the variety of the different resolutions. Things could certainly be polished and expanded upon if you continued working on it.

I also appreciate how you really used the theme, instead of shoe-horning it in.

hah :D. I wish the options were more abstract to have more surprise on the outcome. *Throws a coin*

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.
