The Ethereal Stageby Brassawiking - 48 Hour Compo Entry
My best entry to date, behold its glory!
- Complete game (stick around until you see the actual end credits)
- A long and rich point'n'click adventure (No deaths, so no worries about that)
- Deep story
- Completely free of any gender and racial bias (Something I was very strict with)
- Wonderful graphics made for Full HD (Be sure to run in fullscreen)
- Music that almost loops alright
- Easter egg! See if you can spot it...
- Pure HTML, js and CSS3
- Long playthrough (15-60 minutes to reach end credits)
- Somewhat interesting characters if I may say so myself...
Fourth time doing Ludum Dare. This time I'm all out with my best skills: Mood, story and graphics!
I have had this idea before, so it was not entirely brand new. The reason I took it for this theme, was that the idea for the game, was that it was going to be built like a theater play. Just an simply stage with some actors and a few props. The rest of world comes to life when they start interacting with eachother.
###### Additional notes #####
May require a refresh, if scrollbars starts getting weird or something else doesnt look right or the music doesn't play.
Also, the browser needs to have a 16/9 ratio or the images will get cut. So if that happens, just adjust the browser window until it looks good again.

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.
