Karma mechanics ¿? 4

MrAmericanMike 15 days ago on ScoreSpace x Alakajam! entry HundredPipers

I am confuse as to how the Karma in Alakajam works. I see when you hoover over it says:

Rate and review other games to increase your karma, and get featured higher on the list!

However, even when doing so Karma goes up, but then it goes down again.

Anyone know the exact mechanics on how this works?

Am I the only weirdo? 6

MrAmericanMike 19 days ago on ScoreSpace x Alakajam! entry HundredPipers

So… This is my first GameJam I participate on, but I have in the past played games from Jams like LudumDare.

There is one thing that I never liked and it's to have to download a game in order to play it. Personally I believe a GameJam game should be playable in the browser.

So following this lines, I don't download any game in order to install them and play them locally (This is my "weirdo" thing)

Am I the only one that feels like this? What are your thoughts?

And also a question, been that I don't have much experience with Unity, Godot, or other softwares used to create games. Don't they support web builds? Or limitations apply and that's why participants only submit executables and not web versions as alternative. (Which following my though, it shouldn't be an alternative but a default, and the alternitve would be to download the game)

My Game is about a Yeti trying to destroy the 5G connection by throwing a 5G tower over the edge of the Earth 3

Based on a true story, obviously.
Wish I knew how to post pictures here though,

I am super happy about the extra time. Less pressure, made the day much more enjoyable. Plus I was able to iron out some weird performance issues without having to worry about having a stressful evening.

I quite liked the minimal time to rate games as well, but maybe it's because I'm not as thourough in my ratings as some other people
