Straight Trippin'

Straight Trippin'!

You are the person in control of the switch, that controls the nuclear missiles of your country.

..guess it wasn't such a good idea to take a hit of ACID before leaving to work!

Use the 'Spacebar' to launch the missiles. And only do so when your commanding officer tells you to! So keep an eye in the TOP LEFT CORNER, and try not to be distracted by everything else!

REMEMBER! The missiles travel really fast! SO YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO REACT WITHIN SECONDS! Keep your hand on the 'spacebar' and enjoy the game!

"It was me... and Kevin Bacon" well played, haha.

I really liked the dialogue. Shows a lot of personality.
And the game does a good job at making you look at multiple parts of the screen at once, increasing the tension. I like it!

I think it's an interesting idea. It left me a little confused on the first go. When that popup said click hear to see the glorious sounds, I didn't understand at first. I thought it might have been a link to your soundcloud or something. But to be fair, that was probably just me being incredibly thick!

I liked the atmospheric talking sounds. I liked the idea of the game, but to be honest, rather than feeling tension, I just got bored waiting. I think there is something in the idea of only hitting that button at the right time, but maybe there is a way of making the whole thing faster and more intense. Colors and shapes all over the screen going crazy. The music could be a lot faster. Perhaps you could have the word "NOW" or "Just Push it!" as a chorus. And most importantly I think it would be better if I didn't have to wait nearly as long before i have to push the button.

Funny and unique. The randomness gives it a nice re-playability. Awesome job!

That was weird. The feel and audio was nice. Not sure about the background "voices" though. Just wish there was something else to do while waiting but it does add to the tension so I can see the concept behind it. Overall unique and solid

Really great game. I love the simplicity and anticipation of it. The audio was really well done.

Simple idea really well executed. Liked the dialogue and audio, thought they worked really well in building the tension in having to stay focused. Did begin wondering after awhile if the commanding officer would ever command me to push the switch but luckily I had a friend come talk to me to pass the time.

Thank you all for you comments and feedback!

I was originally going to implement some more gameplay features, but I ran out of energy/time creating the game as it is.

Oh, and most importantly thank you for playing my 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 (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.
