Wow, 53 entries, incredible! Thanks a lot for your energy fighting this year not-so-easy-actually-quite-hard theme! Now is time to get some rest and then get to playing and voting! All submitters, contributors and jam organizers can vote on games and that's what the winner will be decided upon! So take your time, take this responsibly, take this with ease.
In the meantime, create short 2min gameplay video and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org, technically it has to be MP4, 1080p, H.264, 9000 Mbps minimum.
Last but not least, stay tune for Saturday and make room in your schedule as of 20:00 (CET) as we will be hosting big online event through Zoom (capacity for 200 people guaranteed). We will be sending more info in a few days about this event.
We are looking forward to your games! Remember that testing is highly vital to any game. If you are still developing new features try to stop for a moment! Just play the game as it is, write down bugs, write down hard edges, write down things that needs to get polished. Isn't the list long enough already? Couldn't you do some smart game design decisions to cut off non-implemented features and just use what is already there?
Remember, 18:00 CET is HARD DEADLINE for submitting your game. Reserve at least 1 hour to do it as it includes page setup, exporting your game, confirming it works, not mentioning fights with itch.io ;-)
We hope you had a decent sleep! For the brain to work faster and smarter, we advise a light breakfast, cup of green tea or coffee and some bits of physical exercise. Effect is guaranteed ;-)
Today, you should focus on creating your early prototype, remember, faster you have the core gameplay loop, faster you can get to polishing, which really matters! See the 4:44 talk by iconic jammer Rami Ismail!
Do not forget to post some screenshots around noon! It does not need to be from the game, screenshots from IDEs are fine as well!
