The murder!

by nospoone - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Game is not finished, obviously. I was going for a more subtle approach to the theme; the dectective's catchphrase would've been "You are the villain!"

This was my first entry into LD, and did reasonably well considering the RL time I had to take over the weekend.

The game ran and nearest I could tell the only thing I could do was enter two buildings. Tried walking of the edges to another screen in each direction and nothing happened.

What you have seemes like a nice concept. The scrolling is really smooth, i like that :) i accidentally walked outside of the view and that crashed the game :(

I was able to fall off the world on both the left and right sides.

Can you just go in the 2 buildings? Ran off the screen and vanished forever. When the guy told me he had a "red shirt" I kind-of felt like it was leading toward an, I'm the detective, and the bad guy at the same time kind of theme. Maybe it's a work in progress.

Ooh, edsf-controls. Cool.

Colid basis! Like movement, music and world-setup.

Looks like a good engine start but unfortunately the game didn't materialize; from the first NPC I got the hint that the player is probably the villain (well the theme didn't help with being subtle).

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.
