No sound, and only basic gameplay, but the potential is there ... and fun was had!

Couldn't see anything in the play area, it was just black, so I couldn't rate.

Not bad, but as you note it's pretty incomplete. Even some very simple movements from the civilians would have made it a bit more challenging. I didn't seem to be able to go through horizontal doors, not sure if it's a bug or I wasn't doing it right. Vertical ones worked fine.

The same for me, after pressing 'play' the game screen gets black , with the time passing, but nothing happens. The console shows this warning: WebGL: INVALID_ENUM: getParameter: invalid parameter name

A promising start! I liked the effects on the doors and the level design was interesting. Would have liked the camera to track you a little more quickly as I managed to walk off the screen at one point. You enjoyed it, all good :D -J

Glad it entertained some, at least for a few seconds :)

The blackout thing seems to be a problem with some WebGL implementations and handling the alpha-blending. Guess I should've done more testing outside my own comp and Firefox

Just a black screen when you hit "play"

I too get a black screen in Chrome, but it worked in IE9. Potential to be a fun game very reminiscent of Adventure - all very smooth, but there's not a lot to do yet :) Some minor niggles, eg. you can outpace the scrolling and have to wait for it to catch up.

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.
