Jam judging shows the creator's name and scene name when playing a dream
As seen here: (limited time video) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/550393383?t=4h35m7s
Can't prove that was the cause, but it was FlashMedallion's entry, a book cover recreation I think.
Now I see the problem. I hadn't viewed a game jam since launch. It sort of kills the idea of anonymity doesnt it?
Lex: It only happens when you are playing a dream and go to a scene/dream something that has a different owner to the dream you are playing it within. So it happens on Keld's cinematics, for example. Because he owns the dream, but not the scene that's currently playing.
Been doing some more judging. And it seems to only happen when you play a dream, then pause and go to the next entry which is by a different person. So it shows that popup.
Well I am surprised, I saw that so many times during Early Access I assumed it was a feature microchip that everyone was using - a bit like the Playstation 1 Intro scene. Did not know it was generated by Dreams. Odd though, Don't know the mechanism for it being there, none of my creations have ever had it.

I have taken a look into this and it does seem a little strange with hows its currently behaving. I have thrown a bug into the machine for you and we will wait to see what comes out :)
Thanks for reporting!
It looks like the Dreams little notification you get if you play a dream that includes scenes/dreams by other people. You can't get that bar that fades to the right with the text gadget, so I don't think it's that.
Also Flash isn't a jerk ;P
I definitely didn't add my name in on purpose.
I think you will find he programmed that into the game. I have seen a similar level name on a few creations.So I suspect there is a contraption microchip out there that people use.
