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.

Perfection Achievedby Misael.K - 48 Hour Compo Entry
"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." --Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This is a simple point-and-click game (*not a pixel hunt!*), where you will find out how classic artists achieved perfection.
How to play:
Select the objects on screen that are superfluous to the art piece. Remove everything unnecessary from that art piece.
Click "Done" when you think you are ready, or "Reset" if you think you have made a mistake.
Hint: If you get stuck, remember Saint-Exupery and what he said. Also, the "Reset" button is there for a reason! :)
To run in Windows, unzip and execute "PerfectionAchieved.exe".
To run in Linux, install dependencies with
$ sudo apt-get install python python-pygame
and then run "main.py" with python.
Pygame 1.9.1+ / 1.8 (after patch)
Thank you all for playing! First time that I actually finished a Ludum Dare.
If you have any issues let me know! I'll be monitoring this daily.
Notes on the assets used:
All of the external assets used are in the public domain in the US, and so are photographs that are "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional works of art that are in the public domain" (Wikimedia). Images used from Botticelli, Magritte and Munch, and poems from Poe.
As I didn't take into full account the use of external assets, please consider this a Jam entry.
*UPDATE 2013-04-30 01:42 GMT-3*
Fixed Linux port, thanks to munshkr! (some files were not loading because of case-sensitive-ness, I only changed the Linux version filenames)
*UPDATE 2013-05-01 01:04 GMT-3*
Added OS/X port courtesy of Arcana. Thanks a lot!
Also added a lower res version, that runs in a 1024x768 window. No further changes.
*UPDATE 2013-05-12 22:56 GMT-3*
Added a pygame 1.8 compatibility version courtesy of ohsqueezy. Thank you!

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.
