Kill Your Thoughts

by SuperChihuahua - Compo Entry

You are participating in a competition where you are making a game in 48 hours. If you are participating in such a competition you have to be able to fight thoughts like visiting Twitter, or drink beer, and feelings like "My cat makes better games than me!" To help you fight these feelings, your brain is actually using an armored Saab on the top of your screen.

I'm curious as to how this matches the theme.. the car screen?

@BaneStar007: You die if you fall down from the computer screen so the entire Game is on (the top of) One Screen

The concept is great but the game not so much. Whilst the game loaded and started up, instructions were not incredibly clear on what was going on. Graphically looks good though

First try: Reverse drove off the screen.
Second try: Forward drove off the screen.
Third try: Killed my thoughts, although I don't know how since my aim was crap.
Fourth try: Forward drove off the screen.

nice game!

You had me at armored Saab...

But yeah. I like some of this. Especially the thoughts about cats.

No cat makes better games than this.

However, I found it hard to aim where I wanted. This prevented my maximum pleasure.

I dig the graphics.

Before I understood what I was doing I just tried to collide the Saab with the brain. It didn't work.

I like the idea and the graphics (saab (y)). sounds for the car would be helpful to know when you're moving! :)

Hi there. Really be useful to capture the mouse, mouselook didn't really work even in fullscreen. Like the car model. Nothing much seemed to happen. Shame no sounds.

On the plus side, I enjoyed driving the car around and using the controls. On the contrary, I had no idea what to do or how it matches the theme.

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.
