Only One Minute Before Restart

This is my entry for GMTK Game Jam 2019.

If the game is lagging when playing in the browser please try to download it.
The first password in the game is "toolkit".

You play as an office worker just about to finish an important email for your boss until the unthinkable happens, an os update! The update will automatically restart your computer in only one minute and you have not saved anything for at least an hour. Hurry up and stop the update, but with time running out quickly and a not so user-friendly interface that is easier said than done.

What you need to do is written in the lower-left corner. At any time you only need to use the Space, Enter, and arrow keys. If you play the downloaded version you close the game with Escape.

The game is absolutely best played in full screen with sounds on.

I did this Game Jam alone. You can find me on Twitter @LeviMooreDev

I really enjoyed it! I love how you randomized parts of it so you couldn't go on memory. I beat with 26 seconds remaining.

Rating: 9/10

Notes: I can see this game being great for speedrunners

In the arrow minigame, I pushed the up and down arrow keys and heard a sound effect but didn't move

you pressed space and then moved the arrow right?

i cant type any numbers at the 3rd question


I couldn't find the password, I tried the game devs name but it didn't work

in case this isn't a joke, what does GMTK stand for?

Game Maker's Tool Kit

I also dont know the password :(

remove "gamemakers" and remove the spaces

Stressful, but I love the relief when you beat the game.

I like this game

That was very stressful. In a good, weird, fun way.


Nice game. I wish there was an easy mode, with no time constraints.

i manage to win :)

Amazing game

The part where you have to shoot and move the arrow up and down does not work. Up and down arrows do nothing so I can't move. This is in chrome BTW


I thought the same thing, but it does work: the controls don't move the bow, they move the arrow when it's flight. You need to launch the arrow then steer it around the birds.

same here

Im pretty sure it does. It worked for me


Great game, well done! How did you create the old monitor look?

Sorry for late response

It was done with postprocessing and a green background

This game is amazing!


I cant even answer the first question!! because there are no hints,  and the one you give doesnt even make sence!


Sorry to hear that. The answer is toolkit. The creator of the game jam is called Game Makers Toolkit.

That was a fairly tense experience! Won with zero seconds left--wooo!

Just saying: good call having an AI generate the "Important Email."


For those of you that need a hint with the first password: Look at which game jam this was submitted under.


what is it? and where do i find it?

Thanks :D


My favourite so far, really gived me the chills 

Thanks a lot!


Wow really well done love the style and its very easy to pick up.


Thanks. I just played your game and I like the art style. It is really cool that you are painting while playing. Well done.


well-polished and intuitive, while making the player feel the same panic and confusion that they would if it were actually inscrutable. short and sweet. I loved it!

Thanks. I designed the game to make the player panic and a little confused so it is awesome to hear that it worked.


Simple idea done very well. The pressure got to me.

I was not sure if people would feel pressured, but good to hear that it works


That was fun and funny :)

That is nice to hear, thanks.


Cool Game,one of the best in this jam!

WOW! Thanks :D


Probably the most Interesting game of the jam I've seen so far, it's really good

Thank you very much.


Nice simple game. Well done!
