Flight Panic: Minimum

by NeiloGD - Jam Entry

2-4 players go head to head to race to the end of the game board! Strategic selection of flights, as well as playing the right speed/delay cards against the right players will ensure you get to the finish line first, and win!

This game has been done as a board game because I was flying from the UK to Australia during LD26. The game was designed on a flight to Paris, tested and balanced (mostly) on a flight to Singapore, and typed up and documented sitting in Changi Airport in Singapore.

No excuses when it comes to Ludum Dare!

Also, the "screenshot" photo is not representative of the final print out pieces as I kinda lack a printer in the airport ;)

Making a video game in 48 hours, in 10 different time zones would have been such an incredible achievement. Still, commendation for not missing this Ludum Dare despite the inconvenience. :)

The game sounds fun: Short and simple. Sounds like a game parents could play with their kids. It ends fast enough so parents don't have to dedicate hours of their time to playing.

Going with the kids theme, tho, it might be a good idea to replace the skull and crossbones on the 'delay' card with a stopwatch :)

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.
