><(((('> JUST A WORD ><(((('>
Here we are, the penguins are back! And they are really (really) angry...
Incarnate one of them and develop your very own brand new unconventional weapon to reduce human population: the most toxic cigarette ever conceived!
Explore the exotic and very deadly components at your disposal and cumulate smoking (fun) kills!
How to play:
0 - Have fun!
1 - Drag some tobacco to the bottom part of the table to begin crafting.
2 - Unlock components by clicking on them if you have enough money.
3 - Drag unlocked components on available cigarette slots to upgrade it.
4 - Drag the cigarette (clicking on the paper) on the cigarette pack to validate the recipe.
5 - Observe people becoming addict to your brand new weapon and win more money!
6 - Have more fun!
Thanks for giving it a try, for being an awesome community, and don't forget to eat some fish! :D
><(((('> NOTES ><(((('>
About the gameplay:
- Game is paused when you're crafting a cigarette. Validate or cancel the craft to unpause.
- Check out graphs on the left screen to see how your cigarette upgrades influence humans dying rate.
- Popularity is the main stat to increase the number of humans buying your cigarettes.
- Addiction will prevent them from stoping to smoke your cigarettes.
- Mortality, obviously, increases the rate at which smoking humans will die.
- For those who may ask, it took us about 35 hours of work in 2 days to bring you that game thing. -(x.x)-
- We mainly ate bread and sausage, and succeeded in most of our planned objectives. d(o.o)b
- If we had more time, we would have added components upgrades and visual effects on the right screen depending on used components.
- The introduction message tells that the objective is to kill about 300 000 humans, but it's actually 200 000. Sorry for the mistake.
><(((('> DISCLAIMER ><(((('>
We absolutely don't intend to make people smoking those sh*t things which are cigarettes. Preserve your health (and others' too) and money, you'll probably feel better. ;)
No penguin has been harmed during the production of that game, but well... Can't say that much about our mental health! xD
And nope, we didn't drug ourselves when creating the concept! ^^'

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.
