Jumpers' Dilemma

by fhoenig - Jam Entry

Jumpers' Dilemma is a minimalistic "one decision" cooperative jump and run game. You're charging towards another character and the goal is to get past each other. Jump or not jump. One of you needs to jump.

This was rather boring. The other guy runs way too fast.

Why not. I wish I could play that against somebody else, for real. Or am I, already?

This is funny, and the ragdoll physics part was cool. The game hung on my 7th attempt when I landed on the other guy - we both lay there twitching and gradually moving left a pixel at a time. It doesn't make a lot of sense, and there isn't a lot to it, but it was funny and looked sharp. Nice work!

I like the concept a lot. The ragdoll physics are hilarious, which is important, because I never survived a single jump, even when my opponent chose to not jump.

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.
