I love match-threes, but this is beyond addictive! Great artwork, may I ask what software you used to make them?

Really fun. Nice choose 3 concept. The artwork is well done. 3330 on second play. 2 villages. I played it a few times, so that tells you something.

Heh, that was a pretty interesting game! At first, I thought it was a match-3, but then I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a combining game. Pretty neat idea, well done!

What a neat concept for a puzzle game! I liked this quite a bit. Took me a few tries to get a village, but once I knew the mechanics I could figure out a path to victory.

There were a few interactions that didn't happen as I expected them to. I expected fire to burn trees and logs (that might have made things too easy though!) I thought a hammer would have more uses, I expected multiple houses to make a village, and I expected a fire would be needed to make them complete.

Thanks for putting this together. I had a fun time playing!

Really nice little game :) Very addictive! Even though I wasn't good at it, I persevered :)

I think this would be great to play on a long commute.

I enjoyed the mechanics a lot, as other said this would do an awesome mobile game for commutes! Graphics and sound effects are good as well, very nice!

Concept is simple but gives a lot of fun. It's good puzzle games with pretty graphics and sound. I got maximum 900 points and since I'm no good with puzzle games I thought that's enough playing. Some chart with combinations would be nice, maybe a bit ruining fun from exploring new combinations, but very helpful for casual players like me.

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. Many solo participants 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.
