Good luck and have fun!

Good luck to everyone :)

Short question: the voting results are always displayed as "4 - 6%" and similar. Where does that uncertainity come from? :P
Wouldn't it be simpler to have one decimal place, i.e. "5.3%"?

It is 4 votes and 6% of overall votes.  ;)  And yes, adding some decimal places would be a good idea. - Done  :)

Also for the record there was a tie for first place of the theme selection. To break that tie we did coin toss using a random number generator.

I have a cool idea but I don't know if I've got time to implement it :-\

Even if I don't make the deadline I might carry the idea forward anyway.

Good luck to all participants!

It's a pity "electricity" has not been chosen. I personally like it if topics are a bit specific, "puzzle" is a very broad category, especially for a jam ;)

It's also interesting how many topics have gotten zero points. Apparently a lot of people discarded their ideas when they saw the others.

Yeah indeed :)
Why not combining both themes then?
Well... you probably already started working so nvm :D

Good luck to everyone and have fun! ;)
