Feed Some Birds by Mr Fuzzbutt:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ceHS3YXGax-1A5bph4mQ9HISsfd6Y46o?usp=sharing

A relaxing game about feeding some birds. I hope there's enough food to go around!

Controls:
Action Keyboard/Mouse Controller
Move WASD Left stick
Look Move mouse Right stick
Jump Space Bottom button
Throw food Left click Right bumper
Invert look i Top button

Installation:
Just unzip it somewhere and run "Feed Some Birds.exe". I've only played it on Windows on a decently fast PC, if you've got a weird setup you might be SOL. Or not! Who knows.

"Goblins to the Stars" by -SPI-
https://us.v-cdn.net/5018289/uploads/editor/wq/6dfty0z0tzjj.pdf

This is a roll and write where you try and get goblins into space and mostly fail. You need to print a page, then roll dice against big tables of results inspired by old editions of warhammer.
I made it myself. There's no music but feel free to put on either the soundtrack to Seiken Densetsu 3 by Hiroki Kikuta or The War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne while you play.

Animal dongs by expendable:
GAME CONTAINS ONLY THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS

-Short description of the project: A drawing game involving dicks and animals
-Forum handles of all team members: expendable
-Supplies needed: Drawing implements and paper for each participant. Or do it all on MSpaint, I don't care. A minimum of 3 people to play.

To Play: Each round a judge is selected, then everybody else (the players) has 30 seconds to draw as detailed a picture of whatever animal they want on their paper or other material. At the end of 30 seconds, the picture is passed to the player on their left who must then attempt to turn the animal drawing into a drawing of a phallus (not necessarily human) by incorporating the original animal drawing* without erasure or scribbling out parts. This round lasts for as long as the players agree to ahead of time. Rounds may continue by passing the drawing to left and alternating between making the drawing into an animal or a phallus. If you go for several rounds it's possible to have a drawing that is a horse turned into a penis turned into a duck turned back into a penis.

*Note: This is incorporating the animal drawing into a drawing of a phallus. Not hanging a phallus off the animal.

The judge awards arbitrary numbers of points to whichever drawing they feel is best based on whatever criteria they want. All players involved in a drawing split points equally.

Winners are determined by whomever had the most fun. Or whatever other criteria the players want, I don't care, I'm not your real dad.

Give the People What they Want by SageinaRage
Hello, here is my game. It's on my google drive, but having the link should let you download it. If it doesn't let me know. Also I exported it for windows, let me know if you'd rather run on linux/mac. It's like 60 megs.

Name of the game: Give the People What they Want
Description: Knob looks down at his people and grants their petty wishes
Team Members: SageinaRage
Installation/assembly: Just run the exe file, should be it.

Jelqing for fun and profit (that’s the title) by Perrsun
GAME CONTAINS ONLY THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS

The objective of the game is to have the biggest Deck you can, with minimal scarring.
This is a 2 player game. Good communication with your partner is key. You don’t want to be messing with your deck without supervision.

Setup
For music, put on the instrumental version of Celldweller’s album End of an Empire: https://open.spotify.com/album/6uEFcw3jcnFgjXUzv6n7fc?si=v6nQSDKGRDGY9QXb9sZE1Q

You will need a deck of cards with 4 distinct suites. You can use standard playing cards, or Uno cards, or Magic cards. 3D print some. Whatever.
You’ll probably also want a piece of paper or something to keep score.

1 suite will be the Good cards. Another will be the OK cards. Another will be the Bad cards. And the fourth will be the Scar cards. Decide on this with your partner.
Separate out 6 Good cards per player, 4 OKs per player, 3 Bads per player. This collection of 13 cards will become your Pile.
Put the Scars in a central place where everybody can see them.

Each player will shuffle their Pile of cards. Put your Pile on the table in front of you, face down (ass up). You are now ready to play.

Beginning Play
Both players Tug the first card on your Pile. Keep it face down in front of you. This card is now your Deck.

Play flows back and forth between Tugging Sessions and Climax Phases and Scoring until the Refractory Period is reached.

Tugging Session
Now make eye contact with your partner. Count to 3, and on 3 both players must indicate 1 of 2 possible actions: you may tug on your Pile again to try to make your Deck bigger, or you may put your hand on your Deck, indicating you are done Tugging.

If both players want to keep tugging, then you both do. Take 1 more card (still facedown) and your Deck gets a little bigger.
If both players put their hand on their Deck, then we move to the Climax phase (detailed below).
If one players puts their hand on their Deck and one player wants to keep Tugging, then the Tugging player must make a choice: you may risk it and Tug one last time for double effect (on that final card) during Climax, or you may chicken out and the player that put their hand on their Deck may ignore 1 Scar during Climax (this gambit is known as the Dancing Dong). Either way, Climax phase begins.

Climax Phase
During Climax players will reveal their Deck, one card at a time, simultaneously. Depending on the card type different effects will happen.

If you reveal a Good card, that’s worth 1 point. You have successfully made your Deck bigger by careful and considerate manipulation of your pile.

If you reveal an OK card, nothing happens. There is no pain, but also no gain.

If you reveal a Bad card, add 1 Scar to your Pile. You have caused damage to your Deck. Careful! Too many Scars and you might lose!

If you reveal a Scar, nothing happens.

Keep going until all the cards in your Decks have been revealed. Then move to the Scoring phase.

Scoring
If you have less than 3 Scars in your Deck, then you Score. Add up the points you got on your scorecard. Then add all the cards back onto your Pile, shuffle your Pile, and get ready for another Tugging Session.

If you have at least 3 Scars in your Deck (or 2 Scars and one of them was impacted by a Doubled Dancing Dong… or 4 Scars but 1 of them was negated by the Beneficial Dancing Dong) then you score 0 points this round. You have OverJelq’d.

If only 1 player OverJelq’d then you both do another Tugging Session.
If both players OverJelq’d, then it is the Refractory Period.

Refractory Period
The game ends either when: 1) a player exceeds 25 total points, or 2) both players OverJelq’d at the same time.

Total up all the points each of you got, and whoever has the most points has successfully stretched their Deck to its limit. They win!

    Ok, I think I've got it, I fucked up an export setting, and it didn't appear for me because it works fine when run in the project folder. This is what I get for using a REAL game engine.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cZMvkI2OviKy7O3rofM0dQ_nfOKnXLtu/view?usp=sharing

    This version should work.

    I updated the link in the main post

    If this was a bug fix or an added feature or something it'd be different, but I'm not gonna rake someone over the coals for accidentally packaging files wrong

    I have definitely not come anywhere close to beating Pinkball.

    The way you win at my game is getting the framerate down to about 1, and then closing the window.

    Pinkball is a sort of red/green colourblind simulator.

    You might get the shade correct, but it's probably just because you've guessed and got lucky.

    Developer commentary
    This was intentional, it happens at 15,000 seagulls because that's where it becomes too choppy to play on my computer and I wanted to have some sort of funny ending beyond needing to Ctrl-Alt-Del.

    The unintentional part (and I don't know if this happens for everyone or just me) was how when the error message appears, a whole bunch of sounds catch up and play at once and it cracks me up every time.

    My playthough of Goblins to the Stars ended up as:
    Goblin Chief Gurluck assembled a team of a hobgoblin, 2 red goblins, a captured dwarf and a goblin chef who cooked a lovely meal for everyone.
    They collected a pile of pots and pans and used them to assemble a summoning ritual to brng forth a magical bubble creature.
    The bubble carried the goblins up into the sky, where it either spat them out or popped, and left them to plummet to the earth.
    Great success

    My game is drawing animals and then turning them into a phallus and then back into animals in the style similar to gartic phone.

    If you squint real hard and change some definitions that's kind of like ska.
