TONKS

by Cosine - Compo Entry

TONKS is a multiplayer game (2-10 players) that's part luck, and part strategy. Try to anticipate where people will be shooting, as well as where they'll be moving. You can even hurt multiple people with the same shot! TONKS is the next evolution of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

There's currently no way to get out of the middle of a game other than Alt+F4. Sorry! I'm a lazy programmer.

If you leave feedback, please include how many people you were able to play the game with! Also please let me know if the web version works for you or not (I haven't been able to get it working).

A clever little game that's actually really beautiful too. The color and typeface choices are really stylish and could appeal to a wide audience. The web version was completely broken for me but the OSX version worked just fine. Obviously mouse mode is not optimal unless you have a way to hide the screen from the other player, but keyboard mode was really fun. If you continue to work on it, I would get rid of having to hit enter/return after a turn just to make gameplay more fast and amusing. Really nice game!

I think this is a pretty cool idea! Unfortunately I have no one to play with >.< but it feels like it would be a party game.

this is a great idea, unfortunately having 9 people around "not watching" the screen is a bit difficult. would be a great mobile online game !

Couldn't really play the game properly due to being a Loner McNofriends but it seemed pretty cool. I liked the simplicity of it, but I imagine it can get quite intense with a lot of players. Beautifully polished presentation, as well.

I wish I could move the dialogue forward with the mouse. Otherwise really nice and creative in its simplicity :)

Would be even better with online multiplayer. Nice 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.
