Hmm, it was interesting. Very different from the others. I noticed that there was a dynamic property to the people living on the planet, but in the bigger picture of the scene, nothing really progressed. The earthquake and seaquake always exterminated the "beings" in my play throughs. But I think the writing was well done and had a interesting mood set. Probably one of the only submissions so far that does a good job at setting the mood so far for me. But for people who don't enjoy reading, I don't think there's much. But me personally, I enjoyed the writing.

Really nice experience and concept, different from all the games I've played in the Jam. Even though the game is mainly text, some audio or sfx for creating ambient and expressing the changes in the world could be a good idea. Good job, and nice to see a game in spanish!!

Muy buena idea. Al principio al ver que eran unos 300 y me estaban haciendo daño pensaba que realmente era un engaño y hablabamos de piojos o algo asi jajaja.
Me ha gustado mucho, buen trabajo.

Buah neno, yo leí algo tuyo una vez escrito en koruño a saco, en un blog de juegos por ahí. Me di cuenta con el gravatar ese. Sienta bien encontrar a alguien de casiña por aquí, y más si es haciendo cosas interesantes como esta. No estoy muy seguro de haberlo visto todo, pero lo que vi me gustó. Suerte, y no me seas julai y vota el mío! :D

Well, it was sort of enjoyable, but some grammatical mistakes along with a plot which was all over the place made this game slightly less enjoyable. Why would you ask me for my name to use it only twice: in the beginning and the end? Cool concept though.

Ooh, I'm the "Great Cookie"? :o Cool writing skills right here, even if there's some mistakes in the english version (but it's reasonable ^^). The 1st novel-game I've played so far in this jam, and I'm surprised I didn't see more as the theme fits quite well imo. It's a little short and it lacks a little ambient music, but otherwise it's pretty well done!

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.
