April 26th-29th 2013 :: Theme: Minimalism
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.

My Peculiar Carby brantkings - 48 Hour Compo Entry
A man forgets the inevitable and stand against everything and everywhere to save his only love. With water. Or maybe high fives.
The minimalism here is in the game design. I thought: maybe minimalism is use the minimum to convey the most! So why not a car that does everything with less as possible? Like handling and changing gears? There is your game!
Go for the blue dot!
So, I tried my best to make a short, good experience than a long, bloated and bad experience, because that's how I like LD games, for me. So this shouldn't take longer than a minute. If you don't lose once, that is.
Yeah, this is my first Compo game, and the music (Audacity fought bravely and won) and non-existent things like Mute Button and whatnot tell. But I tried my best, and am very happy with the results.
Most of all, have fun!
Made with: Flex + Flixel + GraphicsGale + Audacity + Paint.NET

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.
