This game has so much potential it really could have been expanded on more one of the main issues is Depression there should have been some way to deal with it like playing games also could have been monthly expenses. Other than that it was lots of fun and a great Idea with a bunch of potential I really hope you expand on this Idea and if you do give me a shout on twitter @integershift and I would be happy to give it a try.

I feel like the stats jumped around a bit too quickly, but other than that, I liked it!

More polish this game would of held my attention longer. I enjoyed the juggle and had fun while I played it. It's a very solid game, no bugs no dramas. Good Work

I passed out next to the computer and didn't lose any followers. I think they enjoy watching my suffering...

Fun yet sad game.. fun part is when you try to manage earning money but at the same time you want to stay alive.

Sad in a way that I know for certain there are people in this world that lives like this.

You can play around with the mechanics some more for example you could order online and buy a new gaming pc and buy new games that way your streaming income would go up. your depression could go down in a short time too.

I wish I could have many mechanics to play with rather than just juggling between the three objects

Thanks for all the comments guys.
Thanks for even playing the game I should say!

I have a good view on how the game looks and plays. It obviously isn't the best game! But I enjoyed making it. And i spent most of my time structuring my code which will pay of if i decide to continue the development.

Great idea for a game.

Cool art. Nice glide on the controls but how do you interact? Is it just standing in front of an object interacts with it? It seemed a bit like the game played itself. Maybe a control explanation would have helped. I wanted to play this game more than I did because of this problem.

In it's own way, I found it pretty powerful. An actual game of this could be really good. You pretty much nailed what some people seem to go through. Thank you for this, I enjoyed what was there.

Kind of sad. But the visual style is pretty cool.

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.
