I was too tired yesterday night. So here's some blah blah:
This is my very first LD entry. I was thinking about making an LD game for a long time now and I'm glad that I did it, finally!
This game took about 10 hrs to make, with many real life interruptions. I had a strange sickness lately and I'm kinda frustrated because things I used to love taste like shit now. HOW DO ONE MAKE GAMES WITHOUT COFFEE?!?!
So to compensate this frustration I needed to create some gory shit. To be honest: most of the time I worked on that splatter engine. I use bitmap blitting to display the floor to make the game perform nicely even if you have killed hundreds of enemies.
The first idea was to make a game where you win when doing nothing (minimalistic gameplay)... but then I decided to have different endings depending on how you play, "do nothing" is just one of them, and to follow the theme, there is no "winning" ;)
So have a look, I hope you like it!

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.
