In order to play I had to go to the web version and right click to make it full screen. I wasn't exactly sure what I was supposed to do with the game. Also, when I right-clicked on the house in the box on the bottom, it would disappear.

Same as Jqmfg, It wouldn't dhow properly until it was in fullscreen, and i had no idea what to do as instructions were unclear.

Needs way more direction, more explanation. Also had to fullscreen to play, which I would not have known without the comments.

Doesn't seem quite finished. I left clicked to build a bunch of spawning houses and collected $12,000 almost instantly. I feel like I'm missing something. I assume this is intended to be a cookie clicker/tycoon type game.

Could run, but couldn't really get to play. How to place the houses? explosives?

Hi there. Not rated yet. On Chrome/W8.1 game started once. I clicked Explanations button, that was displayed. Back button didn't then work. I reloaded page and Unity runtime reported an error.

What am i doing :) Great a bit weird gameplay.

Explosions didn't work unfortunately, but I just kept building houses and won eventually. Despite the extreme simplicity it's still surprisingly engaging.

Houses worked and explosions did not, cool idea though

couldn't get explosions to work, you should try disabling the right click menu in the build settings within unity

For a simple game, the instructions seemed to be a bit unclear. I went full-screen as others had suggested and then went to the instructions scene before player. Then the back button did not work and I could not get to the game. Pressed escape to get out of full screen mode and then the back button did work. Played the game back in full screen mode again. The explosions did not seem to be working. Nice effort. It has real potential to be an interesting game, but needs more polishing.

Cool idea I just wish I had a little more control over the boxes. Nice work.

Dec 22, 2014 @ 8:50pm

It was kind of confusing! Not sure I understand it still.

I finally managed to get it to work. Fullscreen in firefox. The controls are left to buy and right to place (opposite of what is written). Explosives don't seem to do anything, so stick to surrounding the yellow with houses.

Instead of making this a christmas box game, I think it would have been a fantastic curling game. It would have been better received that way since the mechanics (speed, weight, collisions) are almost a perfect match for the sport.

Not quite sure what was going on. The explosives did not seem to do much.

I like the idea, and I see how this is supposed to work, but it just doesn't. I can make the spawning houses (using an interface that is the opposite of what the instructions say, with a hud that clashes with the playing field because it's sitting right in the middle of fullscreen mode, the only mode where right-clicks work), and I can make money, but it's pretty much luck-based. No matter what I tried, I could not make the explosions work. I'd like to see a post-compo update of this so people can see what you were really going for here.

I couldn't figure out how to get the bombs to work. I tried everything I could think of, but I could only ever get houses to spawn.

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.
