The diagonal movement make this too hard for my feeble brain!

Nice word finding game, not exactly sure how it fits the theme though...

Hahaha. Funny! Nice clean presentation for some dirty fun.

Frankly, I don't see where this ties in with the theme. It's a solid little casual game.

Oh, wow, that was unexpected xDD It took me a good amount of time to realize the words where not in straight lines! A nice game, thanks!

Heh, this is a well-done word searcher. I sorta get the dirty mind = monster idea and it's a flexible enough theme to fit stuff like this. I ran into an issue where I can form larger words with "fuck", but get cut off as soon as I spell out fuck. Still very classic, nice word game here!

Nice one! :D

UI could use some work (I ran out of time without noticing and was then confused why I couldn't click), but I really like these non-obvious theme interpretations. Cameltoe in a word search? You truly are a monster.

Occasionally would find words it wasn't looking for.

Nice use of the theme -- but it got me to stop playing rather quickly!

Well done as a word search game, but was a little difficult to understand at first that each letter could go in any direction.

Lol, excellent idea :P

Pros:
-Cool concept
-Nice visuals
-Fun!

Cons:
-Really hard without the cheat mode
-Probably would be better just with horizontal/vertical
-Theme?

I couldn't find any words! I appreciate going for such a simple concept and doing it cutely.

It's an OK word search game, but I don't think it fits the theme. Having non-uniform font height made it obnoxious to scan through the columns, since my eyes had to keep shifting up and down along with left to right.

Does not fit the theme, besides that it's a nice game.
A bit hard though, but maybe it's just me, because i'm not a native english speaker.

Well done!

An instruction that letters only need to be adjacent to another letter, not in a straight line as usually the case, would be helpful. It only matches the shortest word though, so trying to make "butthole" gets cut off at "butt".

Nice one - I *kinda* see how knowing what to look for makes you the monster (?). I learnt some new words too :P

I bet this was pretty hard to make! I cheated but the word it told me didnt exist on the board at all :(

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.
