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!
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.
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.
