You are Philip Klas. Use QWOP style controls to conduct your magnum opus. The Minimalism is in the musical composition, not in the number of references. Also potato.

Apologies for the long load time. It's the music. You'll love it!

The team:
-Programming: Nate Allen -- http://www.4firstnames.com/
-Programming: Casey Young
-Music: Fiat -- http://www.fiatmedia.com

This was our first time participating in Ludum Dare. Had a blast! Thanks everyone!

UPDATE 5-1-2013: Fiat has released a Making Of video for Philip KLAS! Check it out on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joaj8xtAEDQ

First entry to make me laugh out loud. It's high time someone took down that damn Philip Glass via the medium of potato-themed one screen web games.

This game is hilarious! Love the music and the style, it's a little chaotic but I realize that was part of the idea. Nice work!

Are those chips! Felt like an art installation only enjoyable. Great work. Spud step needs to be a dance sensation.

You, sir, have a dangerous obsession with the potato.
Really really cool. I wish the controls were mapped so that A and L controlled forearms, and K and A controlled upper arms instead though. But hell, dumb controls help the dumb game! 5 stars all round!

Really nice potato collage for the background! Hahaha. Spudstep was awesome as well.

I didn't really know what the hell I was doing but that didn't stop me from having fun. The KLAS controls are not something I can do xD

Spudstep. Klas. Awesome. This is weird, but really clever and fun. I kept getting my arms crossed, but I didn't care. Very funny.

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.
