Played for about 5 minutes trying to find the shopping cart but couldn't... I wanted to see the other spells! :( Otherwise it's an okay game.

Managed to find the first shopping cart (SPOILER: Just southeast of the spawn point), but couldn't find any others if they exist. Found some portals to Somewhere Else which were kind of intriguing and I liked that you'd managed to get several terrain types in there. Some indication of where to find shopping carts would be really handy.

Nice game. I also couldn't find more than one shop. I like main character walking animation :)

I walked forever in some direction and never north and never found a shopping cart :(

Hey guys, thanks for the input. I know the shopping carts are less than ideal to find, sorry about that. This is one of those games where I had to narrow the scope by the end so I could finish, and shopping carts suffered from that. There is a shopping cart in each area, but due to the short time I couldn't create enough spells to make them actually very useful for buying stuff, so the best bet is just the one shopping cart that is near the spawn (just a short walk SouthEast). Hope that helps with that part!

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.
