Bomb Your Houseby rohtie - Jam Entry
In order to protect his house from getting sold to some weird dude, he has to take matters into his own permanent marker.
Bomb Your House is a game where you use a permanent marker to draw on everything.

If you try my game, I would super happy if you could submit a screenshot of your creative vandalism!
If you have a tablet, use it! It makes for an even better experience!
NOTE: I forgot to put in a way to exit the game from within the game. But there are alternative ways: Just press alt+F4 when you are done.
Please let me know if there are any problems running the game.
I have finally released a post compo version of Bomb Your House!

This is my first LD. I was originaly going to submit the game to the compo, but realized I did not have enough time, so I jumped on the jam wagon, and I am glad I did.
This is also my first time using Unity. I had a few dozen wrestling hours with the engine, but I finally got stuff to work the way I wanted to.
I pretty much used half of the time on programming and the other half on modeling, painting and recording.
If I had another day, I would create an outro for the game, showing shocked adult faces. Additionally I would fill the bathroom with small bathroom related items, to make it feel even more real.
I am considering making this into a fullfledged game where it is possible to walk around the whole house and draw on stuff.
Tools: Unity (using Boo) -- Sublime Text -- git -- Blender -- Photoshop -- Audacity

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.
CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.
If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.
CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.
CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.
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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.
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.
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.
