Maxwell Rushby lanz - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is my first LD entry. Hope you'll have fun playing it!
Maxwell Rush is about being the Maxwell's demon. You have to sustain body temperature within acceptable limits using your force field to attract molecules and stop them from collisions with black walls(or to cause said collisions). Red walls are hot, they increase molecule's speed.
So basically in the top right corner you have thermometer with a black tick. When the tick reaches either end of the thermometer, game over. It goes to the left at a constant speed. Every bump of a molecule(blue ball) with any black wall pushes the tick a little to the right(the faster was molecule the greater the push). Bumping with a red wall doubles molecule speed. You can stop molecules with your body or push it in desired direction. Also press SPACE to pull molecules inside your forcefield (black circle) to you.
Press ESC to pause/unpause.
Blue bar in the top left will be getting smaller over time, so when it disappears you win!
It is written in C++ using awesome Qt4 framework and awesome Box2D engine.

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.
