I don't know whether I gasp you game completely, but I love the audio and the have a nice day sign in the background :D

@OadT: Thanks! My voice + Audacity and BXFR works wonderfully. :) Yeah I need to figure a way to make it more clear. What I was going for is you are a guy standing in line that is fed up and decides face punching is the only option to get to the front, I'll try to think of something to add in the final hours here!

I was a little sad when my punches didn't land in the middle of their face.

@LogGiant: good point! Just fixed this grave error now

Man, how do these people keep cutting in line? I'd say they're the monsters! Is there no such thing as common courtesy here? :P

I was hoping I could use my right hand to punch as well, but I'm now just imagining that it's there to hold the people in place while I punch them in the face, hehe.

The game is simple but oddly satisfying. Mindless punching always makes a great stress reliever!

I learned that if you use QW plus clicks you can turn your fists into meaty machine guns of death.

Quite fun for a bit, satisfying feeling of punching. I got to a point where there was someone I couldn't knock down, was this intentional? Quite freaky watching him smiling at me as a punched him! Would like to see the game developed more.

That kept my punching fists amused, loved the programmer art.

Every time my character finishes punching a line of people he reaches a climax.

9/10 true monster.

This game is really satisfying for some reason. Some more variety and a goal (or did I miss something?) would make it a more complete game.

Excellent. Managed to punch many, many people in the face and found myself left wondering what I even went in to buy in the first place.

Punching potato heads never grow old! 5/5 humour!

Nice! Every time I feel like going to the stores and punching people in the face, I load up this game instead! Much less effort. I especially like how you only have to punch the old people once and they turn to mush - much realism! 11/10

Lol this game made me laugh and I enjoyed it. Didn't really seem like there was an end or purpose, but I stuck around for some punches

Funny and satisfaying game.

Sep 1, 2015 @ 6:50pm

Sound was odd. It was quite repetitive. But oddly cathartic.

Sep 1, 2015 @ 9:34pm

The mechanics feel good. I feel like, I should be the one trying to cut in line (as the monster) and am pulverizing those in line to get to my Black Friday special. Have some customers fight back, give me a health bar, and turn it into a Best-Buy boxing match to claim a $10 4K t.v.!!! ;)

More fun than it should be. :)

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 ( 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.
