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.

Game of Rowsby Zim the Fox - 48 Hour Compo Entry
To Mac players: The source will run on your computer but you need to first have Python 3 installed.
To Linux players: I believe you have to change permissions of the folder before running the game. sudo chmod -R a+xw [directory]
(I think that would be the correct command)
I made a quick WordPress blog for anybody interested in following my game or contacting me.
You are the nastiest pirate-- wait, no. The silliest pirate of the seven seas and you left your treasure spread around a deadly cave. Go retrieve it! What were you thinking!
This is the first game I make and the first programming project I finish and boy was it hard. I had to cut many things, like animations and sounds, either because I had no time or didn't know how to make them, and the game is rather short, but I think it is enjoyable even if it lasts five minutes.
My interpretation for minimalism can be seen in the control scheme. You can only move rows (deques) left and right, simple as that.
My heart kept beating faster and faster at the last few minutes and it almost exploded when I saw the compo had ended eleven seconds after I click submit. Then I saw there was another hour to submit the entries... What a relief...
Thank you for playing and good luck with your games!
Zim the Fox.
P.S. I don't even watch Game of Thrones.

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.
