I was confused at first, but I quickly understood the game after reading the game page (although, it's always better to have the rules on the game itself if you can).

The visuals are really cool, and the defusement of the bomb was a fun experience!

Neat little game, I like it :D

Clever premise, good execution, very satisfying when you win :D

Neet concept, could be expanded more. Hints like "it's a vowel" or "not a letter" would help a lot. It's sad that your original itch upload wouldn't work

Thanks! I really struggled with how to guide the player without giving too much away. I quite like the short fuse, key mashing you have to do right now. Maybe a longer fuse and more clues, with penalties for wrong keys would be an interesting direction to take this.

Well, itch.io appears to be using a random jpg for my game, rather than the zip file I was trying to upload.  

A working backup can be found here:

Oh no :(

I think it’s against the rules to rate anything else than the uploaded game.

The link doesn't work?

The link you posted isn't working either and might not be part of the Jam if it was. I'm really sorry about your technical problems

Developer

link works for me, does it come up with any error messages?

I will speak to the jam organiser about getting the backup merged into the jam page. If you're not comfortable rating the game for the jam that's fine. Perhaps you could let me know what you think of it in these comments?

You’re the last game that doesn’t have any feedback :( I have no computer available now but I will play it when I return from vacation this Friday :)
