Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Trump's First Day

by jamioflan - Jam Entry

It's the 21st of January 2017, and President Trump is ready to enter the Oval Office to make America GREAT again.

As his Chief of Staff, it is your job to make this day go smoothly and prevent whatever calamities might arise in the Oval Office.

1. To increase GREATNESS, place appropriate policies in the out-tray
2. To increase diplomacy, keep the office tidy, don't keep diplomats waiting, and enact appropriate policies
3. To increase Trump's happiness, give him tacos! He doesn't like meetings...

- If Trump tweets, you can delete it using the computer to prevent it affecting diplomacy.
- ANYTHING can be shredded!

The music and graphics are great, and the idea is cool, but it was a little bit unclear as to how I was supposed to do some things.

Funny little game, only problem I had was that it wasn't really clear how my actions were affecting anything, and I couldn't work out how to enact policies, so kept losing diplomacy... Maybe that's it a parody of real life in that regard.

It's a little difficult to tell what asset is what. The intercom is the same phone model as on the desk and such.

I like the idea of this game though it could use some visual clarity and a slow ramp up to progression. Within the first couple of seconds of game time, I had 5 diplomats waiting and I was trying to figure out "what intercom" to let them in.

Cool gameplay, but the visual is not as good as I want :)

This game is friggin' amazing. The music, Trump's erratic behaviour, everything. It's hard to keep diplomacy up!!! Also I had an eerie episode of Are you afraid of the dark playing in the background which added to the psychotic nature of the White House. Great job!

Pretty funny game, not sure what to do with the money wouldn't really want to shred it?

I mean, you have the humor part pretty good, for the rest, you have a good idea, but I felt lsot playing your game, very confusing

Clever and funny. Hard to execute some of the stuff, like shredding, or dealing with money, and I didn't know what to do with the policy proposals the visitors brought in. But it was elaborate, and the one room as the oval office was fun. Nice, cheeky sense of humor "Trump don't quit" :-). Good work.

Very interesting concept. So hectic!

Interesting concept and a good execution, the game can get confusing sometimes though since there's no visual feedback for you actions, still great work for a 72-H game!

That was wonderful! A little bit of visual clarity would go a long way but as it is, it's already great, making it greater again is optional :)
393 high score!

Couldn't reason with Trump. Game too realistic.

It was a little confusing at first but I figured it out and made america great again. Pretty fun game

Great game!!!!

I played it 4 or 5 times, and I was only able to Make America Great Again once, but not very bigly...

Still super fun though once you get the hang of what goes where. In the future, you could maybe increase the number of tweets Trump makes (as in have different ones, not have him tweet more often; I saw the same ones quite a few times).

Mechanics are all solid and hilarious, though diplomacy is very hard to earn and the reward for eating a taco seems a bit low. Music was great, helped the mood, and the game fit the theme well enough. Great game overall!
