WTF?!! I'm not really sure how I got 1st but thank you for this! I really don't deserve it considering all the other incredible games submitted. I suppose I should just say thank you to you all. I'm still in awe!


Congratulations! You did a great job. If you don't mind send me a quick email to so we can work out some of the details. Thanks!


Do you have anything to say to the concerned devs about how a game with no sound got third in audio? You are the host of this jam. Shouldn't you be putting our worries to rest?


I do not think it's a problem created by the host of the jam and neither the winner, but the people (devs, since you can only vote who sent a game).
I think that many did not play the game and those who played and voted for this game to be third in this category (even though it does not have any sound).

I think most of the community did not test the games, only voted in the games.

we have to know that here is a community of devs, to learn how to make better games and to improve with the real feedback of players and other devs, do not spoil this by making itchio just a game competition page.

what happened in this jam serves as an example for others to come, changing the style of voting might be a way to avoid this kind of event, but, devs who play the games of others are humble, give feedback, vote sincerely, I believe that everyone here has the same dream of making great games, events like this end up discouraging those who are following this path.


Congrats however I think there was something amiss here. I mean, come on. Rank 3 in audio when the game has NO AUDIO. Don't you find that strange?


I believe that it really helped that he had 4 more ratings than 2nd place. meaning more score over-all (i think? maybe im just bad at math)


That has no influence on the actual ratings. On the contrary, you can have more ratings and still rank lower because they were low ratings (like 1-stars).


You have a good point. That is strange. I kind of want to see the votes to figure out how that happened.


noticed the same thing.


Congrats man! And for everyone that didn't win, dont worry, its the experience that matters. Im sure all of us learned something from this jam that will  help us be better for the next jam! :D Good job everybody!


It's the 2000 presidential election all over again!


I want to congratulate you on the win, but I can't when you ranked #3 on sound without having any sound whatsoever.
How is there 16 votes, yet only half the comments compared to the game that placed 2nd in the jam?

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but it's more than strange.

Hmm... the more I check this out (and as you guys have brought to my attention) this is a bit of an interesting situation.
NinJaRed if you don't mind I'm going to send you a little follow up message (to our first one) just to chat about some of this. If you don't mind, of course!
