Shouldn't you opt out of Audio? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPmruHc4S9Q

The graphics style is lovely. What is going on with Jimmys head though? It is spinning like crazy. In general the game is very easy currently.

Love the art style!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 11:28am

Haha, love it. Lots of fun ruining people's fun, eh?

@calavera: Dunno, the rules states for the audio category that "Audio – How good the game sounds, or how effective the sound design is. A catchy soundtrack, suitable sound effects given the look, voice overs, etc.".
It's true that I haven't played myself the background music, but also it's also true that the rules doesn't say to opt-out when using public domain musics or sounds.

@gebirgsbaerbel: When someone slips away Jimmy goes a little bit crazy :P, it's a visual clue on how close the gameover is :P

I really enjoyed playing this game. It's funny, simple and Jimmy is so lovely ahah. P.S. The audio fits perfectly the mood of the game.

Little game, but love the idea haha.
A pretty mix between the forever alone guy and the "fuuuu" one :D

Neat little game, but I got to a point where there were no more weapons around and I couldn't do anything. Also... you didn't write the music, this is The Entertainer by Scott Joplin, an amazing ragtime composer of the past.

Music and art-style set the tone perfectly. Great comic style graphics.
I just wish it was faster, currently it's rather slow paced, even waiting for the game over after having screwed up takes forever.

@allurious: When there are no weapons the only thing you can do is to wait the game over :(

@klianc09: Maybe I'll speed it up in a post jam version :P

Unlickly I've had some problem with unity that never occured to me, especially with physics related things (crash with OnCollisionEnter for example), so the only way to submit a working game was to let the player wait for the gameover :(

The graphics style is pretty neat and the music goes along with the general mood of the game. Nice work.

Haha, pretty funny and I liked the art. But too bad you can get stuck with no item and the countdown to retry is so high!

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.
