How I managed it, I have no idea.. but in the past ten hours or so, I managed to build a game from scratch, with just SDL, a C compiler and my trusty GIMP by my side… that’s the art package of course
I also literally hammered some buttons of SFXR in the dying hour and got some rather disturbing sounds from it, so they went in as well.
Doesn’t look particularly spectacular, but there is a game in there somewhere!
The theme link is so tangible it’s unreal though.. as most of the scoring is a bit hidden for you to discover.. I was going to have the infections just appear and have them the “discoveries” but that made it much more stupidly difficult than it is!
So go cultivate some germs, and earn massive points

Source is included.. it’s a one file jobby of close to 900 lines of “C” .. it’s nasty.. enjoy!
Congrats to all the participants, Compo and Jam alike
Here’s to the next one! where I might be better prepared ( hah! )
