How is your game a slow game?
The game's aesthetics and text-based interface harken back to he old computer games of the 80's. These were by-and-large slow-paced games, but that just allowed the player to immerse themselves in the minimal world.
The user also controls an extremely slow-moving snail (through text commands) as they make their way toward their best-friend's 4th Birthday party.

Well, I screwed up. I developed Snail Party several years ago. When the Game Jam came out I changed a ton of the code, made it easier, and added animation to the ending...

And then I uploaded the old bad version to the Game Jam.

So, Snail Party has been updated to the version that was meant to be uploaded to the Slow Game Jam. How embarrassing.

My snail couldn't make it to the party :( I included it in a compilation video series of all the Slow Game Jam games, if you'd like to take a look :)
