December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
DM's Rule - surpy - 48 Hour Compo Entry
The instructions are in the description here. Unfortunately due to me having to redo my entire AI, and to still have problems with it, until I figured out that I forgot to switch an X with an Y, I didn't get all the nice things I wanted to add to it. But it is still a game and still runable.
You are a DM. A hero (F) walks through your part of the woods and you decide to interrupt his quest by sending your minions (E) after him. Stop him before he reaches his goal.
Use your mouse to place his goal anywhere you wish, that's on the grid. Then place your minions with your mouse as well, use your Left Mouse Button to place the goal and minion. After your last minion (5 minions total) the hero will spawn, be careful, this hero has the ability to randomly kill one of your minions at the start. Use your Left Mouse Button to control your minions by pushing the arrow keys on the side of the screen. You can move your minion by clicking the move then arrow keys in which direction you wish to send it. You can attack by clicking the attack button and clicking an arrow to choose which direction. Caution, you can only do one attack per minion and when you decide to do an attack you can't move that minion until the next go. Click end turn to move to the last minion, or if you are at the last one, then it will be the hero's turn. The hero is so quick that your turn will come up very soon after clicking end turn on your last minion, watch what minion you are on.

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.
