WordNomsby seraphki - Jam Entry
First Jam, and first semi-completed game! =D
> Type the words to clear them.
> You have to type the entire word without mistakes to clear it.
Note: Game is incomplete. I had to go to work so I didn't get to finish it as much as I wanted. Will continue working on it and updating it. Made in honour of the LD Compo (completed from scratch by myself).
I want to keep working on it, so I'm keeping an updated version of the game here if you want to play it:
Working on / Left to do:
> Adding Score + HighScores
> Complete word list (currently, there aren't many words)
X Stop words from crashing/overlapping each other
> Stop words from moving onto the same space
X Make next letter in word flicker so you know which is next
> Make first letters of words slightly different colour
> Splash instructions at beginning/end of game
> Pause screen so when you click off game, you can't see the words
> Destruction animations

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.
