This is a really interesting idea. I like how it mashes up code, language and logic and the glimpses it provides of personality too. :)

Thanks for such a positive comment. :) When you messed up, was it annoying that it sent you right back to the start? I wondered if I should have just sent players back to the start of the puzzle they were on.
If you're new to using itch.io and participating in game jams, this information might be useful.
If you've created a game that is saved as a html file you can upload that game and allow people to play it on itch.io in the web browser rather than getting people to download the file to play it. Both Bitsy & Twine, which we featured in the launch event save the games they produce as html files. To get the game to play in the browser tick the "This game will be played in the Browser" box underneath the filename you uploaded.
If it's a game that can't be run in the browser leave the This game will be played in the Browser box unticked.
Also, when you upload a file and edit the game information page it defaults to saving the page in Draft. To publish it so everyone can see and play or download your game, select the Public option under Visibility & access.
To submit your game to the game jam, it's easier to:
- Upload your game first
- Then click on the Submit your project button.
- Then select your game from the drop-down list that appears
- Click Submit.
Games In the Woods is a tree/woodland/forest themed game jam for all ages, being run as part of the Urban Tree Festival. There's a launch event on Saturday 15th May and a “show & tell” event on Sunday 23rd May for jammers to celebrate their creations. We encourage you to create video games, interactive fiction, web comics, board games, escape games, card games – anything you want! We encourage creative re-use of images from the British Library’s Flickr collection of digitised 19th century books, check out these online Flora and Fauna galleries. There is also a fantastic British Library curated selection of wildlife and environmental sound recordings, which you can use in your creations. These are available via this SoundCloud playlist.
Hi. It can be a tree/woodland/forest themed digital or non-digital game eg video games, interactive fiction, web comics, board games, escape games, card games. But it's not restricted to only those types of games. If you do create a game that isn't digital, the easiest way to share it on the jam page is by uploading a pdf/file of the rules along with photos/drawings of the game itself. You can go wild interpreting those limited rules, as long as you stick within itch.io content creator guidelines. https://itch.io/docs/creators/quality-guidelines#nsfw-content-must-be-marked-as-...
