April 26th-29th 2013 :: Theme: Minimalism
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.

Both win and mac just require a double click to play. No installation required.
PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THE WINDOW SIZE IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THE GAME. I didn't have time to implement scaling so the mechanics break.
Platformer with no platforms (minimalism right there).
I suggest using an xBox controller or similar. I haven't beaten the last level yet, I hope it is possible.
"The world has been repressed by years of increasing government control. A small population moved into the caves to escape the grasp of insidious bills that the people didn't vote for. Government beasts are being seen closer to the bastions of the free. You are Minimalist and you have decided to lead the revolution to minimise the influence the government has on the world."

Map editor: Tiled Map editor

There was a bug that made the game unplayable in level two.
And another that made the music repeat on mac(and only on mac).

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.
