Acute Clinic

by Lady Beardo - Jam Entry

Want to help people shift that shape in the center of their face? Then visit Dr. Acute's Aesthetic Medicine Clinic. You play as the doctor. You want to help your clients and make them happy, but paying the bills is also important. But when a client wants the works, those objectives might not be competing!

Greet clients and walk them through their options-- listen to their feedback--but it's up to you what kind of procedure you perform.

Everyone likes acute triangle!

I like the game overall, it is nice to make the series of choices. Just wish in the end, there was some sense of how successful I was in paying off my student loans :)

I feel like being altruistic is going to get my wages garnished. The art was adorable!

Really interesting concept, I really felt bad for Isosceles, but I needed some dough. :/

I like the art style. Not a lot of choice but you do get to choose one of two routes pretty much.

I did what any good plastic surgeon would do, and pushed to get dem big bucks! I did feel bad for Iris, though. The artwork was very fun.

Now I get to feel smug knowing I'd be a good person who doesn't pressure people into doing things they don't want to do, even when I'm a fictional plastic surgeon! Thank you!

Good job with the range of options and dialogue. I felt compelled to think about how I'd actually respond, not just min/maxing or balancing money and happiness.

It's different, but at same time a great idea! Really fun, in each procedure I was always curious about what would happen.

Great job! :D

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.
