Played with my wife and we had a laugh. Controls were a bit hard to figure out though. Didn't know you can press spacebar to skip scenes

Thanks for the feedback guys! I had meant to take the spacebar scene skipping out, but forgot. I may do it at some point in the week.

It gets buggy when you played the (two) levels, the views should reset at the point. It's okay for a first ludum dare, next time add some music and sfx and it will be more fun to play. You can Be proud you've finished it, that's hard enough :)

The pong stage was fun. I didn't understand what was going on with the balancing game unfortunately.

I especially enjoyed the fact that the 2 buttons were next to each other for 2 people. I'm guessing that was a conscious choice.

A bit hard to figure out, but nice exploration of simple game for 2 plrs locally. :)
PS. the Web link doesn't work - I have unity player plugin installed, but it still only shows a page telling me to install it. I think I have the version 4.2.0a of it or something.

If you're having trouble getting the web player to work in chrome try internet explorer. I have to do that and a little security pop-up shows up in the corner. Thanks for the feedback!

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.
