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.

RGBAby mrx - Jam Entry
Platform shooter set in a minimalist environment requiring cunning use of colours to vanquish your foes!
Created in under 72 hours by a team of 6.
Unity, Photoshop, Blender, Gimp, C#
Movement - W A S D
Jump - Space
Fire - Left Click
Change Ammo - Right Click
Monsters are immune to their own colour and when injured will bleed out ammo of its own colour, so be sure to rotate your targets to get an even distribution of ammo!
When you kill a monster on a platform with a totem, a token of its own colour will be pushed into the totem's queue, the oldest totem colour will be removed then the totem has more than 3 colours. When a totem has a red, green and blue token (in any order) the platform is completed and will turn white.
Watch out for killing too many monsters of the same colour on a single platform! If a colour appears more than once in the totem, all monsters of that colour be immune to all damage while standing on that platform!
We've included a web build for player convenience, the build includes the tutorial level that was made within the jam time, but unfortunately we forgot to include the level in the final build, technically a typo bug, but if anyone wants to rate the game based on the non-tutorial version it's all good! Actual game-play is unaffected.

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.
