Nice final product, just a little glitch when you have mouse over the info panel.

I couldn't find out anything suspicious but I enjoyed the ambient and the aesthetic. Good job everyone

The controls are a bit wonky but you really hit upon something with this idea. The graphics and mood are really fitting as well.

Unfortunately in the webGL version, hovering over an object makes it go nuts with flickering and noises so I'm not really sure what to say.

@El Cabaro: Thanks for the comment! We know about flickering, sorry about that. We'll fix it soon. ;)

It's beautiful graphically represented game and I also liked how you were able to describe almost every object to make moody atmosphere of place for the players.

Nice mood. Couldn't find the mimic though.. But the art style is really cool. The music is alright.

Loved the graphical style. The controls worked perfectly for a game like this.

Very interesting idea. I had trouble figuring out what details were relevant, but I suppose that's the challenge. Nicely done.

Nice graphics and atmosphere, I didn't really find out how to tell if the object was the one I was looking for (no specific instructions, and when using space to find the object I could still not understand what made the object the mimic form the text). Music was good, but the drums could have been lower or removed to help with the mood of the game.

Visually superb, the style and production were outstanding. The info text was well done but the actual 'game' of this was too opaque. A lot of repeated items / text and too little guidance. I don't know what object was the mimic or how to even tell which it was. I'm also not sure how this related to the theme.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.
