Infinity Dungeon

by Yakyb - 48 Hour Compo Entry

theme Minimalism;

Decided to go with Minimal gameplay, as i have had this idea brewing for a while.

Originally intended to include shops and tactics but 48 hrs is not a long time. had to drastically reduce scope.

May expand on this idea in the future.

Anyway very happy to complete my first 48hr LD

Um, so is it supposed to have *no* gameplay? Seems to play itself.

I It's like half-minute hero, but you don't have any input. Kinda like progress quest, but less fun (progress quest if fun because of the weird stuff that's in it.
Honestly didn't like it :/

Good job on your 1st LD.

A minimalistic game needs gameplay, just as a minimalistic painting needs paint and a canvas. Your entry might be good at what it does, but it's more of a video than a game.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to run in WINE.

I tried to run it with Wine under Linux but it crashes. :( I'm really sorry for it 'cause it looks promising.

Hah, "Thank you for (not) playing." It's not a game, but it is amusing.

This game plays without me. Or does it play with me?

somehow, when a game plays itself, it makes me jealous and more interested as the result. ballsy move.

Sadly the game just crashes when I try to start it (without any special error message). :( (Win XP, 32-bit laptop here)

I like the 'so simple it plays itself' aspect of the game.

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.
