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.

The idea came from sitting in my dorm room surrounded by people playing an incredibly non-minimalistic game while I was trying to think of a concept: League of Legends. I thought it might be fun to try and strip out everything I could from the genre, and it was. Whether or not the result is fun is up to you, I suppose.
Sadly, school interfered, and I was unable to get a win condition, among other things, set up, but it's certainly fun to mess around in nonetheless. Feedback of any kind is appreciated, and if people seem to like the idea, I may flesh it out a bit more.
NOTE: This is a splitscreen 2v2 game. With everyone playing on the same keyboard, because that's about as minimalistic a setup as you can get for this kind of game.
Controls are as follows:
Moves with WASD
Ability triggered by E
Moves with IJKL
Ability triggered by U
Moves with Arrow Keys
Ability triggered by SHIFT
Moves with NUMPAD 8456
Ability triggered by NUMPAD 7
Made in Gamemaker 8.0, because I know it well.
Art credit goes to my roommate, who demanded credit for his work, but didn't want his name attached. I don't know, he's just that kind of guy.
Also there is one picture that was taken from the LD site that will be obvious, so, credit to them for that.
As for your rights, I'm happy to say that on the off chance someone does want to do something with this, I'm fine with that, so long as I am credited and contacted.

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.
