December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
DVby SanctuaryInteractive - Jam Entry
DV is a roguelike game where you are a villain who has been taken captive by the white knights; your backstory behind your capture is randomly generated each time you start a new game.
Your aim is to escape by exploring the randomly generated dungeon system and making it to the staircase.
Utilise the use of killing the white knights to gain drops which can help you on your way to the end; just make sure you don't die!
We're a group of four, Year 11 students who enjoy making games. This is our second Ludum Dare, after we made Dig Dig Dig! last December.
The theme was a but more tough than 'Alone' but we pushed through this one, with our fried noodles, CAT animes and sleeping shifts.
We didn't get the time to add in the skill trees and the randged/mage weapons we were hoping for. We were also looking to add in some special rooms where you could spend you gold in certain ways, be it a small back room gambling game with corrupt guards or buying some new weapons and potions.
What we did manage to add in is just as we expected. Sounds we made were crisp and the graphics are in place. Coding ended coming out smooth. You'll just have to check it out for yourself. We enjoy it, so we hope you do too!
Thanks for checking out our entry,
Have a nice day!
P.S. If the game does not run properly, you will have to install the .NET framework we provided in the download, or run the installer.
We apologise for the inconvenience. If anyone can teach us how to package the game better, please leave a comment and we'll get in touch, thanks!

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.
