Awesome Graphics! Why did you opt out of everything except Graphics and Audio? I see a lot of potential with the graphics, lighting is perfect the green and the yellow, great combo!

Why did you opt out of everything? This is fantastic and adorable.

I must say that I really enjoyed this game! I would like to rate more of it! But it's a fun idea!

Interesting entry. Due to my slow reading skills innocent people suffer ;)

I got told "Killing Time" wasn't a reason enough to smite someone. I'm not God if someone's telling me what Good or Evil is :D

great game!

Oops, sorry everybody! I accidentally reversed the opt-out options on the submission form. I meant to opt-out of audio and art. That is fixed now.

We don't have the same definition of "sin" but anyway : Good job. Interesting, funny, beautiful. Why can I only rate audio and Graphics ? The rest should be available. It deserves a score.

This was awesome! The only thing I think takes away from it is the text boxes are often in the way. Maybe make them shorter and a bit wider since some texts are overflowing.
Who could've known smiting people would make for such a beautiful game?

Hahahaha, funniest game I've played so far, really great, has a lot of potential in it. Not sure why not running for the graphics jam, eitherway, great idea and game. It's funny how at first you don't know if you should really strike a lightning in someone because they are chewing loudly, but yes, I discovered, yes you should

Why can't I vote for graphics? they're 5/5!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 5:25pm

This game is funny :D
..and beautiful. ..and funny.
"Wears socks with sandals". Did I mention that this game is funny? :P

I loved this, though some of those innocents were doing very guilty things (wearing fedora, socks with sandals) but really impressed with this! Fantastic work!

I like it very much! It would be cool if you could change people this way, like when you dont strike with lightening someone who is strangling the hobo, he will continue to strangle people. Nice work!

wow. awesome!

Amazing graphics and quite unexpectly funny to figure out that clicking a pencil loudly is a sin. Cool concept in general! Thanks for the game and Merry Christmas!

Graphics and Audio are great!! The gameplay is decent too, and more variety of things people do would make it a lot more replayable

ha ha smite them all!

Cool graphics, fun gameplay, but I noticed that the thoughts aren't randomized, while it would be more interesting if they were. Also would be fun to have more diversity in people thoughts.

Cool idea and the city feels very alive, though doing well in the game is difficult because what you think is good/bad can be very subjective especially with things like the tv shows you mention and such. But the presentation still made it fun to play, nice entry :).

The graphics are beautiful. A great idea for a game.
How do you exit the game?

Dec 10, 2014 @ 10:56pm

Apologies, I forgot to implement a menu. You'll have to hit ALT-F4 to quit.

PERFECT! Love it. Maybe a bit of variety on punishing ie. Earthquake/Explosion/Insects but really love it otherwise!

I am not certain of some of the "right" and "wrong"s, but failing for not smiting would be neat to have.

Dec 14, 2014 @ 11:24pm

Hilarious! Love it!

Simple but fun!

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.
