Really neat. Reminds me of older games of this kind, but focused on villainy.

Not really much of a game, but not bad. They dance way better than I.

The dancing was hilarious. The cruelest kind of torture.

I was promised a torture chamber and that's all I got. Fair enough.

Not a game in the traditional sense but tonnes of fun. It's a shame it didn't have more/better audio but everything else was very nice indeed. Well done for getting that out in 48 hours.

What is physics + villainy? This ^^ Of course it get boring quickly, but spawning two guys so they stick to each other and then letting them dance -> looping: just ridiculous xD

It's a toy but nicely done with all the ragdoll stuff going on. Not much more to say about it really.

Wow, this is hilarious. Thoughts:

-Not much to do, but hey, that's cool by me. Just not by ratings.
-This may be just me, but spawning victims so they stick together really creeped me out...

+Fun. Quite fun.
+Nice menu there, I recognize the awesomeness of LoveFrames!

Great little sandbox. Would be nice to see a game made out of it somehow :O

Dance was my favorite.

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.
