Graphics are overrated

by kiwi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Your goal is to survive while the weather keeps changing.

you have to keep your temperature stable around the middle, if you max it out you burn, if it get's to low you'll freeze

but you'll have to have energy to walk.

around the world there will be magenta pickup's availible those will level you up, wich result in less affected by the weather, but faster change of temperature + energy

Random Generated world

green tiles: give you energy
red tiles: Temperature rises
blue tiles: Temperature drops

Controls: arrow keys + spacebar (selection, respawn on die)

this was my first LD, learned alot in it. A bit bad timing, because 27aug is my birth day, so lost about 20h to that. but totally worth it :P

will join next LD.

Using the source code:
- play on same map as your friends by entering the same seed
- change difficulty

PS: the game isn't that good :P

If you're having problems running it:
- Check if you're having the latest version of JAVA (7u6 or something), it's build for that. Don't have any other versions installed, and installing older versions gave me a lot of problems in the past, so I won't be able to build with an older version of JAVA.

Interesting idea; you've earned the "you tried" award. Maybe it's just my computer, but every couple of seconds, the game locks up completely.

Thanks, and no I'ts my fault, doing something that is completely unnecessary . May I fix this? or is that against the rules

I couldn't play it once it was downloaded. Just wouldn't open.

Strange, what OS did you use?

Couldn't run, I don't have java 7 because some software only runs on 6. If you don't use java 7 features, I advise using -source 1.6 -target 1.6.

Hm not sure why I died the second time. This was pretty hard to play because I was paying attention to so many things and there was so little feedback as I went. Still, pretty good overall. "Who the hell cares" made me chuckle.
