by Lapinou - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Made with unity, first Ludum Dare for me, very special and good experience.

Instructions are in the game, in "Play" mode you need to collect the pickup using the right color of roll, in "Zen" mode, just feel free to play with the rolls ;) !

Gameplay video :
Time-lapse video :


INFORMATION : If you don't see the theme in this game, please make some research about the etymology of "evolution" ( here for example if you're lazy :p ), or read the infos :)

More zen than I would have thought. Would be cool if the colors changed after each roll.

@Bemmu : I don't know why, seems to work with other people :/ ... But I'll upload it somewhere else, so just wait a little :)

Really loved the setting on top of the mountain and the whole game concept was so unique, but I couldn't quite figure out how to play. Also just a suggestion, but perhaps next time swap out that scratching sound with something less grating - it was hard to listen to.

GENIUS! Well it doesn't really have much to do with the theme, and it could use improvements pretty much everywhere, but the concept is brilliant, I applaud you good sir.

Not really an evolution theme (unless I don't get it), but pretty.

Very nice idea and simple mechanics. A bit clunky i found tho, and i'm not sure how this fits to the theme.

Very interesting idea, and the wind noises were nice. I found it quite difficult to actually achieve the goal though :(

What a strange game! I iked the idea, although I don't get why you play it in the mountains?! ;)

@ratking : Well, no time to make a good environment, needed a skybox, like mountains and well, what a better place than mountain to make something roll :)

I was able to get out of the boundary and walk all over the slope! Also, It's cool when you spawn heaps at a time and they fly through the air like a rainbow!

Though i don't understand what it had to do with the theme, it was a cool little graphics, / mechanic demo, that was very impressive and alot of fun to play with.

Interesting gameplay (and i assume that unfolding while rolling is a "evolution" movement.), very original!

Fun concept. Always wanted to do that in real life lol. Controls are quite complicated first. Was hard to hit boxes if they were too high. Innovative little game nice job.

Jeremias says ...

Interesting (and crazy) idea. Did you update the controls within the 48 hour compo restrictions?

Lapinou says ...
Sep 3, 2012 @ 4:01am

@Jeremias : No, unfortunately I deeply needed some sleep, so like I said in previous post, I've changed controls after the 48h. But I asked if it was ok to do so and they told me yes. Maybe Your post make me feel like I've missed something...??

Jeremias says ...

Don't want to denunciate you - who am I to apply the rules to others? ^^

In my personal opinion, controls are part of the game developement process mapped to 48 hours. I mean, heavy exceptions or corrupted controls so the game is really unplayable should be fixable. I already rated your game so my question was only for personal interest :)

Lapinou says ...
Sep 3, 2012 @ 6:35pm

Ok. Well, I didn't change or add any feature, it was only remapping cause the previous controls were totally bad in a way that players just can't play the game because of them.
(I hardly think that previous one were just a wall between the game and the players :/)

So to be clear, I've only changed some inputs, but if finally it was against the rule I swear that I didn't know that, I've made a post asking that before make the changes :/
