The Death of Disco

by Auron2030 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A thematic game about the end of the 70s disco era ushering in the monochromatic 80s of Thatcher's Britain. It's also about pushing blue squares into red squares.

Note: There's a bug that sometimes sees levels unable to be completed due to a mismatch in the numbers of squares. This may or may not be part of the theme.

Note: The aforementioned bug should now be fixed.

Cool, I like your synopsis of the game. Wish the music continued playing when I started the game.

Sadly it seems that I can't run it, because it's no 32-bit version. :( (Win XP, 32-bit laptop here)

Pretty neat game. I got stuck with a few unbeatable levels though. It wasn't very hard but it got more challenging after a couple of levels, which was nice. Also, I really like your choice of colors.

Not much challenge. Nice colors and sounds.

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.
