by laaph - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The game is not finished. :( This has been heavily inspired by the game "Adventure", but I barely got the bat in the game, and the dragon is not in there.

If you are interested in playing the text adventure on level three in the original format (also made during this Ludum Dare, but I wanted more out of my entry, and couldn't figure out how to submit twice), you can play it at:

Don't press space bar, there is a bug. I will resubmit. Arrow keys or WASD move.

Mixing in the text style game won my heart.

This is quite impressive! The camera angles are pretty awkward in some spots (at the beginning I can't see where I am going, for example) and in other places the spinning made me feel quite dizzy @-@. The game is really cool though and I really like how you put the twine section into the game. How does that work?? I would love to see a source or something for that as it is really cool.

The Twine section is a big cheat. I took screenshots and used them as textures. Then I did

Ray ray = Camera.mainCamera.ScreenPointToRay(Input.mousePosition);
if(Physics.Raycast(ray, out hit, 250f))

to figure out where on the wall the mouse was clicked. Then I just checked to see if they were within the bounds of the blue text (manually figured out the coordinates).

I should bung my game in to github, but Unity and source control never play nice, but with the promo code I got from Ludum Dare I should have the checkbox that says "play nice with source control".

Seems pretty ambitious for the 48 hour compo- lots of interesting ideas- maybe the extra days for a Jam entry would have seen this to completion. Quite neat!

Super fun to mess around in! I broke it twice. Love the text adventure built in.

Nice game! The balls on level 2 can push you over the walls, so I accidentially broke the game by getting pushed over the outer wall in the first corner, with a ball in. Putting the textaventure in was an awesome idea and I loled right at the start, because of the mario-reference^^ Good job.

I'd like to see a more complete version too. Ambitious for 48 hours - which is awesome!

I don't know where you can edit old entries here, but you can find this and more here https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59395735/GameJams/gamejams.html - but the thing I wanted to add was linux builds and source files to the entry.

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.
