About syradinegames (twitter: @@syradinegames)

Gamer all my life, always wanted to create the perfect game. But, making games is hard work, especially when you have a full time job. So, I'm setting out to create the perfect bite-size games and concentrating on mobile games. Found out about Ludum Dare 27 an hour after it started, so I am extremely happy that I had something to submit.

Several folks have tried the game and have not figured out how to survive, so I updated the summary with more hints. This is what happens when you don’t have testers :) Those that were frustrated, please try again. I’m sure you’ll like the survival technique. See my entry here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-27/?action=preview&uid=27425

Hints for survival
Hint 1: Pay Attention and don’t be rude
Hint 2: If you talk to your buddy, check your surroundings
Hint 3: Don’t Text and Skydive
Hint 4: There are other 10 second driven elements in the game, like timed events (even when it seems like nothing is going on)

I found out about Ludum Dare one hour after it started, so suffice to say, I’m so glad I was able to submit anything at all. Check it here

My game is pretty passive, just giving you a chance to express what you would text if you had 10 seconds left to live. Minimal story telling and minimal interaction, but I’m hoping people seriously express what they would write if they were presented with that situation. I have a button to tweet out your final words in the end if you so choose. I’m looking forward to seeing what people write (#LD48 #Lastwords). One thing I’m hoping would catch people’s attention, is the statistics at the end of the number of people who dies and number of people who survive the game.

So yes, there is a way you can survive if you pay close attention…

One thing I wish I could have done: figure out how to get the twitter button to work in Gamejolt. Unfortunately, I couldn’t so was stuck with having people download the zip of the exe or webplayer. I felt the tweet button was important enough not to change the link to Gamejolt.

Thanks to the organizers and other game devs who encouraged me.
