Libelle: Dragonfly
a fast-ish top down block shooter! purely mutliplayer. the green areas are safe zones. First to five kills wins the match.

Controls: wasd for movemnt, click to shoot (you can hold) press tab to look at the score.

It still has a few errors, I need to really fix the crashing on join. The best way to join a game currently is open the client and let it crash without closing it open a second client, then you should be able to join.
config.txt in the config for the client you can change your name, your color and the port/ip of server you are connecting to. I will be hosting a server at port 6080 you can try hosting your own server and connecting to it at for better success.

config.txt for the server you can set your server name and console width height, and the map to be loaded. the current default map is called center piece.
linux build coming soon.

Haha yea I saw that. That's one of the things I wish I could fix about the game. The bullets are created on the client side of whoever fired them then sent to the server and the server relays them to the other players so your bullets are a little bit behind where it actually shows them. Server doesn't bother to track bullets hitting people all done client side, which is a little bit janky, thanks for the match + you gave me a run for my money 3 to 2

Pretty cool little multiplayer shooter. I thought the safe zone concept was neat and the music changes were pretty gnarly. Well done!

Linking the Windows version, when using Linux as caption is a no-go.

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.
