Yet another old fashioned game in C.

You are the Villain and you must escape the police. o/

I actually didn't have much time and it was my first time with ncurses library...

But I hope you'll have fun ! ;D

This is what gaming's all about. I had more fun playing this than I'd like to admit.

(I wasn't able to compile it from source - some instructions on that would be nice.)

I can't get this to run on Ubuntu 12, sorry.

Others, click the red-bordered "valider at telechargez le fichier" button to download.

A simple game, but I really enjoyed it. Great job!
Regarding compiling it from source, just running "gcc driver.c -lncursesw -o driver" did it for me (provided you have ncurses installed).

Interesting game. I had fun playing it. Nothing to do with the theme. Some instructions would have been nice. A better download site too.

To compile on ubuntu you need to sudo apt-get install libncursesw5-dev first.

Once I got it working it was quite fun, but dude, where's the theme?

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.
