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 Voidby Frib - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Enter the void! You and your colleague have developed new tech that allows you to cross dimensions! But you drew the short straw, and you're the first human test subject!
Armed with high-tech goggles you prepare yourself to traverse this new world, while your colleague can offer guidance and advice via trans-dimensional voice chat (one way only!)
It is up to you to explore this beautiful new world, and to return home safely!
The post-compo version has a skip tutorial button (default tab)! Now, in the first two levels, you can skip my annoying ramblings :D
There's also a few bugfixes. The game should be a bit easier now. There was an issue that once a monster had sighted you, it would always see you if you had your goggles activated, even if you weren't looking at him.
Made for the 48h compo. The Void is a first-person horror game filled with limited vision, spooky atmosphere, an intense ending and super high quality professional voice acting.
First one to find the potato wins. Or loses. Or both.
Also, what happened to mr. Snuggles?
Made with XNA, so you'll need .net and the XNA framework.

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.
