Introducing Bridge Crosser!
Why did the chicken cross the bridge?
For 26th Ludum Dare's theme of minimalism, we knew many people would go with simple graphics and things of that nature, so we decided on sticking with a simple objective instead. You are Minimus the Chicken, and you must cross a bridge.
This was our first time using Unity for a competition, and we had a blast. We used Sculptris to make our models, Soundation and Audacity for audio, and paint.NET for screenshots and other 2D work.
We are a team of two, one programmer, and one artist, with other roles overlapping.

- Mac Version now available. Be warned it ran a fair bit slower on our test machine running OS/X.
- Linux Version also now available. Be warned it also ran a fair bit slower on our test machine running Linux.
- You will need a decently good computer to run this game. PHYSICS.
- WASD/Arrow Keys to move
- Mouse to move camera
- Space to jump
We really hope you enjoy playing our game. Good luck as always to everyone else in the competition! :)

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.
