Game: GGJ Simulator

This game simulates being the organizer of a local instance of the Global Game Jam! As the organizer becomes overworked, his/her heart rate rises, which has repercussions. Make your jam the biggest in the world to win! Fastest win I've heard of so far is 2018. Can you do better?



True Colors: The game uses only the basic 16 colors: black, gray, silver, white, maroon, red, olive, yellow, green, lime, teal, aqua, navy, blue, purple and fuchsia. See color chart
10 little pigs: The game uses 10 or more buttons or keys for gameplay-related actions (no pause or anything else).
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

This is so awesome. You can actually play as any of the organizers. Kudos, Ryan!

So glad that you all have enjoyed it!  I would've loved to have added graphics, but just didn't have time!  I was imagining a "Game Dev Story" kind of graphical feel, so just think of that when you play :)
