      I may be crazy but last night I didn't like where my project was going and I would probably not have enough time to finish it. So I am starting fresh.

        Well, I called out of work to finish my game and ran into loads of issues. I guess it is fate, so I won't be able to submit my game as its unfinished. On a related note however, anyone else not able to use the mouse button inputs in Engine Version 4.13.1? I tried it in 4.10 and it works so it might be a bug??

          With this 100MB limit, can we turn off include prerequisites?

            Incase anyone was wondering it was gonna be a cipher hangman with time attack and scoreboard, I was having issues getting the letter selection working and I hadnt even started the phrase encryption but had all the data structures intact. I wanted to try all in unicode but that was probably less helpful than I thought

                    One question regarding the "Best Game Under 100mb"-category: If I upload my game in an archive, will the size be judged by the size of the unpacked files?

                      Jams are always fun when you can participate, even when you can't finish the thing on time.

                      Its been busy months for me lately, and I hope this lets up once our projects are finished, but I couldn't even find the time to join any of the more recent jams.
                      I did come up with an interresting and ingenious idea of what to do with the theme, so I thought I'd post it in here anyways. The idea came to me on tuesday afternoon, so it was fairly impossible for me to pull it off anyways

                      The idea was to make 3 games, that earn me at least an honorary mention (for being creative, for being stupid, for breaking the rules, or any combination of the 3); or put me in a position where I could compete in up to 3 categories (that is, Army of One, Under 100MB and potentially Unique use of Theme):
                      "Settle", an Oregon Trail like multiple choice survival...whatever thingy where you pack your things, prepare for a journey and then go through some decisions along the way, hoping to survive the trip (potentially using the State Machine techniques Richard and Ian showed on the last few training streams).
                      "Tea" (a play on "the") where you're on a ship and have to drop crates into the water (think Boston tea party).
                      "Score", a simple click-the-button-that-lights-up clicker with 2 or 3 buttons. Just hit the button that lights up to bump your score, or something like that.

                      Whats the point of this? All 3 games should be fairly small (fitting into the 100MB rule, if you count them individually), should finish in about 30 seconds to a minute (so you don't have to put up with the silly idea for too long at a time), and they each keep score of what you did during that time (to stay in line with the theme).
                      At the end, provided you "win" (whatever that means in the context of each game), they tell you a code that can be entered in the next game in sequence to give you an advantage - a simple code-based New Game+ (think Zelda Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons pair that gave you codes for the other game after finishing it). This also wraps around, so "Score" gives you a code for "Settle" to bump your scores up even further.
                      The codes alter the game by giving you more starting resources for "Settle", NPC companions that help dropping crates for "Tea" and a simple score multiplier/bonus for "Score".

                      This makes it pretty much an endless game that would at some point peak (or maybe even break), but in the end you're still trying to beat a high score (thus settling the score, by scoring).

                      Now, call me crazy, but hey, I didn't have time to make 3 games anyways :P

                            So sad, compared to what I originally planned, my game ended up being so shallow. If only I had just one more day... But I guess that's what everyone thinks at this moment haha
                            Nevertheless, it was my first game jam, and it was a great experience participating in it! I gained a lot of practical knowledge this week, and plan to achieve more in other jams from now on.

                              I got it under 100 MB anyway with the prerequisites. Just used that blacklist trick
