[Closed] Vote for your favourite Game

For our first official #WeekendGameJam @jane has very kindly offered to design a custom sprite as a prize.

Since picking a favourite involves playing 4 games this seems like a great one to open up to a Community vote. Please try out the games below and vote for the one you enjoyed playing the most.

The game with the most votes gets to commission their own sprite which all Thunkers will be able to use when designing games in the future.

Very exciting to see all of the competitors! I’ll take a position of impartiality here since I’m providing the prize :grin:

I made a slightly different version of mine, because I wanted you to be actually putting masks on. Feedback welcome - I’m not totally sure I like how it looks yet.

So are you supposed to click an unmasked person to add a mask and then click them again? When I click, I see a mask briefly and then it disappears but if I click again, the person/sprite disappears.

And this is why beta testers are important, @tatiang! :slight_smile:

You’re /supposed to/ click them and a mask will appear where you clicked and stick to their face (replacing them with the masked equivalent sprite). A second click would trigger the effect for clicking a masked person and remove them (and some points).

Sounds like it isn’t as clear as I’d like it to be…

That’s what I figured. But when I clicked an unmasked person once, it just flashed the mask for a moment and then returned the sprite to the original look.

Edit: Well, I just tried again and it worked correctly, masking the unmasked. If only Covid safety was this simple! Although wearing masks is a relatively simple thing we can all do. :slight_smile:
