Too many stillborns. Fun though.

I nailed it on the first try. Pun intended. Giggity.

I did it! At some point, I was about 80% white, and I saw a mostly brown bird. I thought to myself "Ugh, gross brown bird, stay away". Bonus points for the subtle racism simulation you got going on there as well. Good show.

I found it a bit quick. If you had more time, then perhaps you could have added complexity. Cute graphics.... good thing there was no bus around.

Cool, quick game buddy!

We thought it was a solid game. It would be better with more skill-based tasks instead of waiting for a random chance of white pigeons.

Cool idea, this is basically a racism simulator, not sure if that's what you intended but interesting.

Hi there. Interesting idea. Seemed to ignore any choices I tried to make when there were 3 pigeons on screen. Shame no sounds.

Interesting entry. I picked a white bird every time but it seemed to go back a step and even went full brown at one point! After about 8 white birds it finally spawned a white one :)

It was pretty interesting once I found out I had to dodge other birds and it wasn't as simple as just click to choose. A lot of the combinations made it seem like there were definitely some underlying hidden stats being randomly combined to make a child from the parents, very cool.

Even if it is simple, it's got a lot of character! Hope you keep building on it :)

Hilarious idea. Cute graphics.

It locked up a few times for me and I had to reload the page. I did get there in the end, though!

I would have appreciated a little bit of audio -- you could go a long way with just two sounds: some wing flaps when a bird moves and a "coo" sound at mating.

Oh, and what a brilliant title for the game :-)

The game seemed to lock up on my first and second try, but then the third time I loaded the game, a solid white pigeon showed up almost immediately, and won all the dominant pigment genes. The rules as to what makes certain spots show up in the offspring or not show up is really unclear. Might be random? Hard to tell.

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.
