Ghosting

by camdensegal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A little exploration game, mouse to rotate camera, arrow keys / wasd to move the ghost.

I had a hard time figuring out this theme as I was reluctant to build in a set "good" and "bad" in the game, I built the ghost and then had a really hard time figuring out what I wanted the gameplay to be so instead built out a little world to explore.

I have to remind myself to keep things simple and get started on a strong foundation otherwise I can find myself stalled out with basic interaction but not much of a game.

Thanks for trying it!

Love the graphics!

The game doesn't respond though. I keep auto-running off the level

Holy cow, that's creepy... and great. Fantastic sounds. I wish there was more to explore.

The controls are completely broken I kept either running off the level or stopping and not moving at all.
Nice graphics and sound though
It has a very nice atmosphere

Movement is kind of weird and not responsive, it has something to it but the sounds make it annoying fast.

Creepy audio, but had trouble getting controls to work as well.

The arrow keys didn't do anything for me. The ghost just kept wandering off the edge of the world and screaming. :(

Very cool art style and the mood is great, but the controls were broken.

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.
