December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain

Back to Browse Entries


by Cthu - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The accidental villain themed web game prototype. A bit like Dizzy meets Skyrim and Deathspank. Unfortunately far from finished, but I like the premise enough to put a few more hours on it this week.

Use arrow keys/WAD to control, E/F/Z/J to interact.

Requires recent Flash Player plugin (11.3+). I used Starling, Nape and IntelliJ IDEA. Tested hardly at all...

EDIT: Yep, tree part is the end. Should have made it more obvious, sorry. Updated post compo version is coming in a few days!

Short and fun :)
Having all that interaction buttons that do the same thing is a bit confusing... at first I kept pressing different button to see if the do different things

Hehe, funny game :)

Sounds, music, some hillbillies and you got something nice at hands that you should keep developing.

It's unfortunately over far too quickly.

I quite like the idea of an accidental hero, or an accidental villain - somehow who tries to be good but ultimately ends up being evil.

^That; it's instantly more complex tale than someone who purposefully set out to kill and destroy.
I also laughed ha :)

The graphics kept turning into half-triangles for some reason so it was hard to get into.

Hilarious. I love it :)

btw, I fixed the Opera bug with my game. Who knew that Opera throws a DOM exception when you try to draw a rectangle with 0 width and 0 height to a canvas :D

The terrain art is great but it's a shame that didn't reflect on the characters or gameplay.

The ending was funny, poor goat :). Yeah it was very short. Good job!

GreenPixelDev says ...
Dec 20, 2012 @ 5:53am

Short and sweet, I suppose! :D The controls are there though, so you have a nice foundation to continue to build on!

Dec 20, 2012 @ 8:04am

Full marks for Humor.

Jan 2, 2013 @ 4:24pm

It really was short! Was there no sound also? Ending had its merits!

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.
