Envious Farmer

by bombpersons - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I know this game is terrible >.< But I wanted to actually post something for the solo ludum dare for once.

The idea is that you are a farmer that is very jealous of his neighbour, so he trains his sheep dog to kill sheep and sends it into the neighbouring fields..

I found this very challenging. I think the sheep mechanics are on the right track, though. They act like I imagine scared sheep would act, the way they scatter and run into corners. Getting them into corners was about the only way I could catch them.

I liked it. It's simple but cornering those sheep made me feel quite villainous so it matches the theme well. But what's up with the farmer's face on the splash screen? :)

Controls were bad and dog kept sliding off of the screen. Made it too frustrating for me to play.

Hmmph. Chrome/Windows is telling me that appears malicious. You might want to look into that -- I'm willing to bet you've missed a lot of votes just because of that. :[

You must sign in to comment.

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.
