Triangles Say Yip

by sorceress - Jam Entry

This is a short story-based game, set in a world inhabited by Shapes. The graphics are inspired somewhat by the game boy.

The game worked for me. Great work, lots of content, and humorous writing. The game felt very polished and the audio and graphics were both very well done.

For such a short time you did a lot! I played the main story only but it came out more dark then I expected. The graphics and music fit very well. Great entry!

What does the triagles say? Yip, Yip, Yip, Ownn, Yip, Yip, Yip, Ownn.... haha

But why the main square say Yip? He is an anarchist by breaking the law! :p

But serious, I loved the game! The nostalgic game boy style, the music, the voices (Yip, own), story and quests

Great game!! :D

Absolutely fantastic game. The story was touching and uncomfortable (in a good way). Not sure if I'm missing something, but nothing happened after I got 33/33 score.
I'd recommend to anyone playing this that they don't try to rush it and just take their time to explore.
Amazing job, please keep making games! :)

i wanted to see where the story was going, but i accidentally hit escape and lost all my progress...
the graphics and music were pretty good, it looks like you created a lot of content in such a short period of time.

Interesting story/message, great graphics and sound too. The music did get a little bit repetitive, and a map would have been very useful too, but good job overall

A game packed with details, nice graphics and a story.

I don't know how you've managed to cram this much in there and there are some slower parts, but overall, very nicely done!

More than lovely entry, but I accidentally pressed ESC and that ended the game for me right in the middle. :-(

Great game, I love the story and the message. It has a lot of work, since the town is so big a map would have been great.
Nice job!

Really good story, it made me a little sad, the personas of the shapes felt very real. However, I haven't finished it yet, as I wanted to save the game as it felt kinda long, but when I hit esc to bring up a menu, the game just reset. A longer ld-game like this could really benefit from a save function. I might revisit it later, because its really solid.

Lovely. Great job on the retro aesthetics, and brilliant storyline, very zeitgeisty.

Really nice game ! Music and graphics and story are really good ! I like the fact that you can wander around in an open world like this. The only thing that missed was "the End" screen ^^

wow, nice entry! so much detail and polish! sadly I pressed escape at 14/33 and it restarted with no warning.
I didnt like the internet slang on the speech tho, it breaks the inmersion for me as I was pictureng the characters talking not chatting.
The art and pallete is brilliant. Definetly one of my favourites entries!

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.
