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.

DIG QUEST Deluxe: ASCII Mining Adventureby SuperDisk - Jam Entry
!PUSH K TO SKIP THE INTRO STORY!
ASCII is minimalist, right?
This game is longer than any LudumDare game should be, it's rather massive for a 48hour game!
You are esteemed miner Richard, and have one final task before your retirement: Kill Charles Flint, the evil firespitting gnome of subterranean evil.
There are heaps of secrets, see if you can find them all (including an underlying, somewhat depressing subplot and the most glorious treasure of all...)
Dodge Whistlets, bombs, Jakes and Jacks and all kinds of other ridiculousness that we could think up.
Post your high-scores in the comments below if you want to.
Please read the HOWTO.
This game was created for the LudumDare 48 Hour COMPO, not the Jam, but since we worked on a team, I am forced to put it in the Jam.
But keep in mind that this was created in under 48 hours.

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.
