December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
MidBossby Eniko - Jam Entry
In MiniBoss you play the weakest demon in the dungeon, an imp with no talent at all aside from the ability to possess defeated foes. Defeat the other denizens of the dungeon, learn their secrets, and rise to become the new end boss!
Please note that hitting 'L' several times will resize the combat log to various sizes so you can pick whichever is most comfortable to you, unlike what the game says it's not an on/off thing. This let's you know what's going on better.
Windows is a binary package without dependencies. Any other platform can download the source and run the game through MidBoss.py, requires Python 2.7 and Pygame
EDIT: Fixed a bunch of crashing bugs, if anyone downloaded this before, I suggest redownloading it now.
UPDATE: If you like the game, please keep an eye on my Twitter or this page for a post compo polished release which will hopefully address a lot of issues people are having and include some new extra features.

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 (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.
