Special Delivery

by OnlySlightly - Jam Entry

This is a game created using TV footage from the 50s about a special delivery. All you have to do is press the arrow keys to play. Have fun!


I'm Matt, I did the coding, editing and designing. Brian Webb did the creepy music and some of the sound. The rave music in the post jam version is from Ben Sounds. Some sound effects came from Sound Bible.

After playing your entry, I'm 100% convinced you are totally insane - in the best possible way. That was the most creative/zany concept I've seen! Controlling the video clips is such a good idea and well done. I want more! :) Does Kyle Lucian ever get his package? I must know!!!

Great job! If you are doing your stream this LD I'll see you there :)

Great aesthetic. There is a lot of potential gameplay for two buttons. I'd love to see the package shapeshift further.

itch.io is so incredibly sloooow. It takes almost an hour here to download the 100 MB version :-(.
And you don't have to distribute the .pdb files. These are just debugging symbols.
As to the game: Okaaaaay.... That was weird! But fun! :-)
Love the style btw.

This is absolutely bananas. I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't this. Hilarious, bizzare, and the strangest thing I've ever seen come out of LD. Great job :D

Wow, I've never played anything quite like this. It was utterly fascinating and delightful throughout.

I'd love to play a longer game like this. Nice work!

May 3, 2016 @ 2:17am

So awesome. Love the way this looks and the way it sounds. 100$ on feely-juiciness, etc.

Totally unexpected, unique, and all around awesome :)

I really liked the use of using the old footage, and the control in the occasional clips is really good.

I'd love to see more of this! It's just a shame it ended so quickly

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.
