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.

Prismaby plash - Jam Entry
Prisma is a color-component-based puzzler.
R1 was built during the Compo. Since I missed the Compo submission deadline, I decided to continue into the Jam.
There are secrets! Find zem! You HAVE NOT SEEN ALL OF PRISMA until you reach the level selector! If you found the boss level (5th screenshot), you're going the right direction. Good luck!
# Controls #
- move : up, down, left, right
- action : space
- MOVE FASTER: spam arrow keys!
# Download notes #
Linux users: get LOVE 0.8.0 and do `love prisma_r3.love`. If you don't have easy access to LOVE, the Windows package should also work perfectly in Wine.

In this order, preferably:
- plash on irc.afternet.org (**PM me if you want hints -- I want you to finish it!**)
# Changelog #
## R3 ##
- Fixed character escape sequence for Lua 5.2.x users (Arch Linux! retest, please!).
# Other things #
Correction to my first comment (blame exhausted plash!): I spent 35.1 hours total working on the game, 27.416 of which were during the Compo, and 7.684 of which were during the Jam.

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.
