The Minimas

by longcatlover - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This game is very simple.
The Minimas was written in Processing.
The Minimas was only my second game with this language...so it is pretty bad! :P
P.S. I am trippy due to lack of rest...just saying :)

Found a bug - you can click the circle when it "bounces" back and starts to grow... if you click it after it fills the screen it says the radius is -1000 or something and counts as passing the test.

Hehe you should enter Ludumdare with a language you already had pratice with. But you have good storytelling skills and humor sense to take the maximum effect from the minimum content :) Congrats for this

My radius was 30! Congratz on your finished game! xD We always end up having problems with the language/tool we use. But that doesn't keep us from changing and having new problems.

I really hoped for a series of minimalistic minigames :(

If you had implemented multiple minigames this would have been nice.

It's got good humor and graphics, but at least for me was way too minimalistic with the gameplay. I clicked and won the game. I understand that you were just learning the language, and it looks like you did well for only a weeks worth of experience, so I hope your future entries have more gameplay.

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.
