December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
THE PRINCESS IS MINEby emveyh - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You are the most evil villain and king of the goblins named Grakkor. Just a few hours ago you kidnapped the princess. Too bad that the King knows you very well ... and where your dungeon is located
He has send 9 Armies to bring his daughter safely back.
And that is exactly what you have to prevent. I mean it's YOUR princess, right? Exactly!
You have 3 loyal minions that will fight for you until the end. Defeat all 9 Armies and the princess will be yours. You lose the princess if the knights can free her or if all your minions are dead. Good luck!
(Hint: There is a instruction menu on the titlescreen)
- Select a minion by clicking on it
- Move the minion by clicking on the destination
- Fight your opponents by standing next to them
- Pick up upgrades by standing next to them
- The princess is located at the center of the map, protect her!
IMPORTANT: You don't have to intercept the enemies. They have a 2 tile wide radius. If your minion is within that radius they will automaticly attack you. You could say that they have the ability to attract them.
Since someone was asking what the upgrades do: The "shield" upgrade increases your maximum health. The "sword" upgrade increases your damage. The hearts just heal you :)
The tools i've used:
- Language: Java
- OS: Linux (Ubuntu)
- IDE: Eclipse
- Libraries: Libgdx, libgdx-contribs
- Audio: as3sfxr, Sunvox, Audacity
- Graphics: Gimp, Google Web Fonts
- Total time spent (break, sleeping included): ~ 43 hours
- This was my 4th Ludum Dare Compo

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.
