Um... So you should probably change this to "containing inappropriate material" because of that stellar opening screen. Other than that, a funny and enjoyable game that offers quite the challenge. Finding the faces the furniture was pretty hard! Great job!

@aegypticus Thanks for playing! It is in fact already marked "may not be suitable for kids".

I like the graphics and gameplay was good. I think the goal of the game was good too!

Liked the graphics, and it was pretty fun to pee at the ghost :)

I could not see the ghost face at first since the resolution was so low but overall it is an innovative idea!

Took me a little while to figure it out, but once that happened it was pretty enjoyable. (In hindsight I should have watched the pictures more closely.) It's a quirky little entry which was executed really well.

Well...I lost good and proper.

The knowledge that I got to pee on a bunch of innocent furniture and walk around with my wang dangling out was more than enough consolation.

A fine game by many measures...but damn is it hard to find that ghost.

Good idea, nice pixel art! But it's really hard to find the ghost for me

The game is very well done. The graphics are super cute and the gameplay kind of unique. I like the idea and would have loved to see a more complex level design.

@runvs The plan was originally to have the player search for the ghost in a properly laid-out house but time constraints meant I had to compromise there way more than I liked. Glad you enjoyed it!

Graphics are nice and gameplay is interesting but why is it so tiny? An option for fullscreen or something would have helped a lot

Honestly, the opening screen is too much. It has nothing to do with the game and only seems to be there for shock value.

The game is pretty good though, couldn't ever find the ghost at all.

Is there a way to avoid the ghost attack?

I think the opening graphic would've worked better as a victory screen!

It was quite easy once you learned to recognize the ghost furniture. Pixel art was nice

The game looks awesome, the idea behind it was interesting and a little tricky at first but was easy to get the hang of :)

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.
