Cat City Pizza

by biscuitdough - Competition Entry

Make pizza deliveries using the ancient navigation method of the paper map.

No Timer, no end, just drive around and get to know the Cat City.

Also no sound.

-Make sure you zoom in on the map to your right in the car (scroll wheel)
- if your car is acting strangely, look around, you might have fan trying to climb on.
-The indicators on the map were added last minute, so they're still a little hard to see, your car flashes red, the destination sort of flashes blue.
-You might need to mash the reset button a bit to fix flipped cars.
-The steering wheel only has a broken pivot point in the webgl build for some reason :/. Unity.

I liked the cat references in the street names. The driving was super erratic but at the same time quite charming. I do wish that there were some more exciting things to crash into like stalls and windows - watching the carnage would be very very very amusing.

Haha couldn't find my destination so started driving around smashing into things and firing pizzas into the air when my car flipped. Loved it.

Yeah, the web was pretty buggy- I think. I thought I was driving into the ground, but my car just rolled. Must be the pivot point on the wheel? Any way! Love taking a Sunday drive down Old Barfield Lane East, hope to make it back to Cat City soon!

Sadly the web-build was extremely hard to play due to hard to control controls and being a tad buggy, but I love the concept.

We tried to play your game on stream; myabe you can see where we went wrong?

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.
