A Walk in the Dark

by LittleGreenFlame - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my first finished LD game! Yea!

Tools used:
Visual Studio 2012 for c#

I'm not sure of the best way to distribute the game to you guys so if you know of a better way then what I am doing please help a fellow programmer learn how to actually publish something. All you should have to do is download the zip with the .exe and run the setup... I think. Tell me if this doesn't work for you.

I had fun during this compo and can't wait until next time!

It was too slow-moving for me.

Great game. I made 3 or 4 ends but I couldn't retry the game because "Begin" get me to the end I previously got so I had to restart the game each time and "S" didn't worked.

Nice work you've done here, I love the writing of this.

Sadly I can't play it. I guess because it isn't made for Win32-systems?

"Prerequisite check for system component Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (x86 and x64) failed with the following error message:
"Installation of the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is not supported on this operating system. Contact your application vendor.""

You need to stick with .Net 3.5 or 4 if you want to support XP.

Additionally, I don't see your source, which is required for a 48 hour compo entry.

very interesting little adventure :D, very curious how did you make this game in plain C# instead of using XNA

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.
