Cool game! Whit cool idea and actual topic! Divided gameplay are wonderful. To the future, I think need to add some missions which you can score if you'll you dad's hands ability.

Damn Java 8. I am scared it brakes my system. But your game looked so good in the screenshots and the description I had to risk it.

Glad you made me do it.
Really good hit on the theme!

Awesome music!
The graphics are very fitting.
I especially like, that the ground you can walk on is made out of news.

But the movement physics feels a bit off. But that is maybe only because I am no platformer fan.
Is there any way to restart other than closing the game and starting it again?

Great graphics and sound! I like the contrast in style between the TV and real worlds. It was a little hard to get a handle on movement, but good entry!

Hoho, hi there!

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.
