December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Fight the Powerby ||||||||||||| - Jam Entry
In the near future, technology has soared far beyond what we in the 21st century expected. Leading the charge, the world wide web has grown even more expansive, encompassing almost all fields in the future era and becoming the centerpiece for development. In the process, Piracy has advanced and created an arms race between publishers and hackers as each strive to one up in the other in an effort to further their agendas. This is but one small struggle between the two, as a common pirate fights the security system for access to free goods, ask yourself, who is the hero here? A woman who enjoys the tears and labors of another without just compensation, or the greedy publisher who seeks to bleed the customers dry with draconic, inane systems within the market?
This game is a shoot 'em up that changes based on the music you load in. Included is one song but try it out with any mp3, ogg, etc that you have on your computer. Dodge the bullets for the entire song and win. Key to note is that the hitbox, as in most shoot 'em ups, is much smaller than the character sprite. It only takes up the small red circle on the center of her body.

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.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
