by wmccullough - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Sokolism is a Sokoban game to go along with the minimalism theme. As soon as I saw minimalism as the theme, I immediately thought of the old Sokoban style games. Considering that I have entered LD two previous times and didn't finish, this genre seemed to be perfect for the compo because of its simplicity.

Move: Arrow Keys
Reset Level: R

Notes: It is possible that you may need to run the oalinst.exe in the zip file before the game may work. This is because of a Monogame dependence on OpenAL. Sorry bout that :(

Pretty nice little game - although I'm terrible at Sokoban, lol.

Does not start, just directly exists without any error message.

Hey kreischweide,

Sorry that you are having that experience. Did you run the oalinst.exe in the /bin directory? Most crashes are caused by that. I indicated it in the entry post above. Please let me know for certain, I'd love to help you get it going!

Yay, I won! It was really addictive, just like real Sokoban. Good job, neat graphics!

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.
