I liked the fact that almost everything was animated, it definitely shows well. Music was also really fun and set the space mood. Mechanics were really thorough and well thoughtout.
Overall an awesome game!
The tkinter module is part of the standard Python library so it is extremely usual that you do not have it (neither tkinter nor Tkinter). You may have renamed the tkinter file. The only think I can think of then is to reinstall Python.
I'm sorry you weren't able to play the game without troubles. I'll make sure to pack my game into a directly executable file next time.
You are using Python 2.x.
In this version the tkinter module is called Tkinter (note the capital T). You can either download version 3.x, or rewrite in the files where you see tkinter to Tkinter.
As I said in the game description, this is a Python file, so you will need python installed. You can download the version for your OS here: https://www.python.org/downloads/. Make sure you download version 3.x (the latest is 3.7), as it will not work with version 2.x (sorry).
Extract the minesimulator.zip file attached to the game into a folder. Make sure all three included files are present.
- From the command line navigate to this folder and run `python minesimulator.py`.
- Without any command line, you open IDLE (preinstalled with python). Use File->Open (Ctrl + O hotkey) and choose minesimulator.py you extracted. Then in the new window, Run -> Run Module (F5 hotkey).
I have not used any external libraries so you should definitely be OK to run it as long as you have a normal installation of Python.
Next month's jam will be slightly different than our previous jams. We will be hosting our first Optical Optimize! This is a jam specifically for optimizing/improving/adding on to a game you already have submitted to the jam.
Does the original game have to have been submitted to the Optical Jam, or can it be a submission from any other jam?
