Minimalism for Dummies

by Kikkers - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You, or other objects, might fall through the floor. Sorry 'bout that, this is my first platformer style game. If it happens, just press Backspace to restart the map.

Other than that, have fun faffing about in this :)

Really creative way to interpret the theme. Good luck with your future LD entries!

I like the ladders and bridges mechanic, makes for some interesting puzzles by themselves. I noticed the game sometimes detects that you completed the level before the entire level is painted.

That's on purpose, actually. 80% coverage is enough. I assumed most of you aren't that completionist. You can paint it all if you want though.

Good job! This actually was way more fun than one should think :)

PS. I painted two levels 100% before I noticed that 80% was enough :P

The ladder mechanics are pretty nice. Had fun throwing paint on the 'art'.

Controls are a kinda finger-twister...

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.
