The Professionals

by Brassawiking - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well this one was a bit too much to handle. I wanted to recreate the bank scene from the movie Heat, but I ran out of time to make a proper game. I did, however, learn some valuable lessons.

So there isn't much to do, except perhaps get the feel of where I was going with it. Better luck next time I guess =)

I'm attaching the mockup I made in beginning among the screenshots if anyone is interested.

Every journey starts with small first steps. Keep a good work!

Hey, just to say I really like the look of this piece (graphically). Keep up the good work.

The graphics have something special and it seems to be a huge game, but it lacks so many things, like for example a good feedback of player's actions. While playing, i did not understood what was happening. Anyway, it is a good begining, you have to improve it ;)

It's a good first try. I think the gameplay concept is actually interesting: having to stop and aim before shooting, taking cover, and giving the AI orders. I kind of like the art style too, although it would also benefit from a bit of finishing. Outside of LD25, you should try and complete this one!

I too know the pain of not quite finishing an entry before the deadline. Good luck with your next entry, and don't give up!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

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.

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.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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 ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
