Lines, Color & Ratio

by Angelbait - 48 Hour Compo Entry

LCR is a game about becoming more than you are by being a part of everything. In reality, its about flying around really fast and grabbing everything!

As my second LD, and one done in AS3 I count this as a success. Not because its a crazy fun game or anything, but because making is better than not. My skills with AS3 were mega lacking before this weekend and the work I put into this project was worth every line of code.

There may not be as many gameplay elements as I would have wanted but weh, it only took me eight hours to figure out how to fling RGB values around!

So even though LCR does not have:
- Opposite color repulsion
- Danger elements
- Win/Loss requirements
- Sound...
- Or even good animations
I stand behind her.

Enjoy my weekend of work, and next LD expect to have WAY more fun playing with my style.

Peace for now and one love fellow game makers!

Whoops, I don't think you created that background image.

In its simplicity, this is quite soothing game. :)

Can't really control my avatar, bounces around so quickly. Like the music though.

It's definitely a minimalistic game, I have to admit.

You must sign in to comment.

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.
