April 26th-29th 2013 :: Theme: Minimalism
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.

Help this young girl to face her fears and overcome her nightmares in this combination top-down platformer and sidescroller. Maybe there's more to her dreams than meets the eye...
My second attempt at a Ludum Dare, this time with some other people to help. A fun experience, like last time, I hope you guys enjoy playing. Feedback is appreciated.
Before you vote down because you don't understand what's going on in it, make sure you've read everything below.
As a note to anyone who doesn't understand what's going on, the story is left mostly out as it is for the player to interpret their own way (the theme was 'minimalism'). In her mind, you are not "battling" monsters, you are teaching her to control her dreams.
Now go on, help her face her fears, defeat the monsters that live inside her head and make her dreams a nicer place! Help her to learn to take control of her fears and control her unconscious mind.

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.
