Pilferer's Run

by Crynix - Jam Entry

Unfortunately, this game is incomplete. Most of the stuff is there, except physics, collision, and graphical polish. These things, along with power-ups, will probably be added in a post-release update.

You, a baby-eating, kitten-throttling, toilet-clogging criminal, just robbed a bank. Was anyone hurt? No. Do you even have weapons? No. Are the police after you? Yes.

It's not really a game yet so it's difficult to rate it, once gravity / jumping and lose conditions are in place I'm sure it will be much better.

Game ran smooth, i liked the idea, but it definitely needs some proper gravity to make the game a challenge.

This could be a great game, too bad it is not finished. I liked the music!

Not really finished, but you learn a lot just by entering and doing anything! Look forward to LD26 :)

With some proper collision detection and gravity this game could be quite fun!

Seems like it would be really cool when finished.

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.
