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 Red Circleby dissonance - Jam Entry
Removed an audio track that wasn't being used. This should make the file size a bit smaller than before.
I highly recommend you go through this game twice. It isn't very long, so no need to worry about time. It's more of a notgame than an actual game. I also suggest you go right the first time; trust me.
Okay, this game was meant to be something a bit grander, however, I have little-to-no experience doing something like this and I'm a fairly new programmer. So, I decided to cut out a lot of the game. The file size is due to audio files.
I hope that even in this butchered form, that is barely a shadow of my original idea, it still comes somewhere close to having the impact I wanted. If it does, then this will have been worth it and perhaps worth me actually taking the time to complete it.
I apologize for the bad audio. :)
There's a chance the linux version might not work. If you can, post a comment letting me know if there are any errors since I don't have a linux pc set up to test.
Sorry about the lack of a mac version. I'll see what I can do, but like the linux version I can't promise it'll work.

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.
