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.

Triage: The life of a combat medic.by anjack - Jam Entry
Triage: Life of a Combat Medic is my first game. I created it using the Unity3D Pro trial key offered on the Ludum Dare "Tools" page. The models and terrain were created within Unity and the textures were created with The GIMP. Coding was done in Mono Develop. I also used NFOPad for some text editing.
UPDATE: Added ambient sounds for the battlefield and city scenes! These were made using Audacity.
UPDATE 2: The game should now properly identify when a patient has died.
UPDATE 3: Added a link to the source. I basically just zipped up all the files in the project directory, so you get the assets as well.
UPDATE 4: Added a Jam version to fix a few issues.
Here are a few known bugs:
* Some of the text is off-center. I'll work on that.
* Sometimes wounds will overlap or obscure one another. You can still win a level even if a patient dies.
* Sometimes the "Patient is stable" message doesn't appear even though you've clicked on all of the wounds. I'll fix this.
* There are a few places where you can bug through the terrain/walls and walk off the edge of the map. I'm okay with that. ;)
* If you don't save SAM, the wrong dialog will display the next time you enter the city.
Still no score tracking. I hope to have it for the jam version.
Also, I didn't state it in the instructions (included in the game menu system) but there is a time limit to heal each patient. As a patient's timer runs down, the window background will change to yellow and then red. If it's red, then you have less than 30 seconds to heal them.
Please let me know if you observe any additional bugs, or if the game doesn't play properly.

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.
