A Dark Secret

by kivifreak - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A Dark Secret is probably one of the best game experiences i have ever made! Although i slept most time of the competition i think the game came along really really great :)
I hope you think the same thing!

There are 2 Alternative Endings!

Controls are Left and Right arrow.

About the game and myself
I am Kevin De Keyser also known as Kivifreak.
Anyways i am 15 years old and i really love gaming and making games.

The Software i used:
- Processing v.b2_8 (my coding software. More about it here: www.processing.org)
- Paintbrush for Mac (my Painting Software next to Apples Preview)
- GarageBand (to play some music)

I hope you really enjoyed playing this very special experience of a game!

Fairly long wait for a potato joke, nice job on the sprites & map though.

Really cool game, TWIST ENDING! Made me think about life death and potatoes. Thanks for sharing this truly monumental experience.

I like the great graphics, sound effects and the unique idea. I don't like the red text, because it's hard to read.

Cool sprites for the characters (so much contrast with the tiles / ui :x) and nice music. The game is wayy to slow, making this game boring

Funny and short as hell. Even with the extra content.

The game kept freezing on me (linux x64), but seeing the comments on the game's ending made me want to know what happened in the end. So I went through your source and figured it out :D Interesting endings and I like the epic music. I'm not going to rate because I didn't actually get to finish the game, but I did enjoy the game while it wasn't freezing on me.

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.

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.
