I quite like the idea of playing an anti-virus, could do some interesting things with that concept.

It worked pretty well, but it was very, very short. The graphics weren't great, but they weren't bad either. The gameplay was actually pretty challenging for having only one level, but after about 2 tries, I beat it.

I'm glad that you guys enjoyed it. The reason why it was so short was that I think I started out with too much ambition for the other aspects of the game besides the actual gameplay. It's something I will just have to keep in mind for the next LD. :)

I liked the idea behind it, I would like to see something more puzzle/skill based for the antivirus than tower defence.

Tower defense + antivirus is a pretty neat combination :) A bit too short, though.

I think it would have worked better if it'd been a Windows screen for the whole time and the cannons had been the antivirus programs.

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.
