Nice start to a game,
Hope you find some time to carry on working with it.
But with a newborn, I doubt it ;)
Many congratualtions.

You should include a build of the game for everyone to download, unfortunately nobody or almost nobody will go through the trouble of installing stuff to run your game :)

So I had some trouble running this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\00stuff\dl\LD31\EGOS-master\EGOS-master\", line 1, in <module> from pyplatformerengine.engine.Game import Game
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyplatformerengine\engine\", line 66, in <module> Game("../../resources/demo/settings.conf").start_game("../../resources/demo/game_objects/gameObjects.json")
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyplatformerengine\engine\", line 20, in __init__ settings = Settings(settingsFile).settings
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pyplatformerengine\utilities\", line 13, in __init__ settingsFile = open(path, "r")

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '../../resources/demo/settings.conf'

Perhaps I misunderstood something? It's not like there's an installation guide though. I tried installing with the win32 exe and by unzipping the source and going " install". The engine was installed but running always resulted in this.

You should compile it or package it for easier downloading...

Game was Ok, needs some more work on the game play. Not very creative though.

Where is the game?

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 ( 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.
