Maze of the Silver Elements

by logiclogue - Jam Entry

This is Maze of the Silver Elements.
The mazes gets progressively more difficult.
You must find the silver element to complete the maze and progress.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish the game to the standard I would've liked. Due to studying for exams, time and mental energy was cut short. The next Ludum Dare I'm hoping to be fully ready and give it a real go. I may continue to develop this game further in the future, up to date versions will be at the following address: http://jordanlord.co.uk/maze-silver-elements.

I have really enjoyed taking part in Ludum Dare 35, it has been a fantastic learning experience as I have not used Three.JS before. It was really satisfying implementing depth-first search to generate the maze.

Controls - Arrow keys or WASD

Programming language: JavaScript (ECMAScript 6)
Libraries: Three.JS

You must have WebGL enabled in your browser to play.

Updates since submission:

- Added WASD keys

I really like the game, though the shapeshifting theme is very hard to find her. Love the mood and the puzzles

What's the point? Why are we there? How does this have anything to do with shapeshifting? Why not use WASD and mouse for control? What's the story? What are those white objects?
This needs a lot more work. If you didn't finish it, why upload it at all? This is just wasting everyone's time.

It was quite meritable what you have done in such a short time.

Keep working with open source code!

Alright, dunno if it's the game being horribly inefficient or you choosing the variables badly, but the main character was walking terribly slow to me, and after completing the 3rd level I gave up. Sorry, I'm not a fan of plain maze games in general, and this one has way, way, way too slow movement for my patience. >.<

Maybe next time choose the movement speed better, or make the performance better (depending on what's actually the cause of the slow movement)...?

Nice to see a three.js game; easily tested. I did not find much to do in this labyrinth, though. Felt like wolfenstein 3D :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
