To answer your question about how to run my game, don't unzip anything at all. Just download the jar file and run it. Should just be a single file that you download, nothing more. Comment again if you have any further difficulty.

It seems as though Jonathan Blow has made yet another masterpiece

This game was simple, but still very difficult. I liked the music and sound, but the Jonathan blow joke was a bit distasteful.

Simple and good 60 seconds fun. Got swarmed by "real" kennedys pretty fast though, which is a bit weird I guess...or something.

Not a lizard, but he could be!

Took me a while to realize that the game was, "Shoot the JFKs who can turn into lizards," and not, "The JFKs can turn into lizards. Shoot them when they do."

Anyway, there was a big problem with this one. I can see my mouse cursor over the game's cursor, so I click where the mouse cursor is sometimes, but the game's cursor doesn't seem to aim there. I ended up shooting some real JFKs when I was aiming for lizard JFKs that way. Or just flat-out missing things I was pointing at.

Nice song, though. And there was a silliness to all the graphics that brought everything together pretty well, really. All together? Pretty good for a cheap joke.

The best part of this game are the song and the description text, but I liked the rest of it, too! It was smart and bold of you to make the bad JFKs turn lizard only for a brief second, you really gotta keep an eye out! Good job

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.
