(Only kidding - we just didn't finish it)


Spring is an entry to the Ludum Dare Jam 26.
In our steadfast commitment to minimalism (which extended to our almost complete lack of pre-planning), we managed to create a point & click adventure game with almost no gameplay.

We hope you enjoy what there is of the game, and if you like what you see please check back soon. We hope to have the full game released as a post-jam version within a week. It's going to be great!

We were looking forward to another hilarious point-and-click adventure by you guys, it's a shame it wasn't finished in time! Too ambitious?

Absolutely - we were stretching ourselves with Plan M, so we tried to scale things back with this one. Looks like we accidentally scaled things forwards instead!

It's disappointing for us to not have it finished by the deadline, but we will live and learn, and come back next time better prepared! :)

Somehow reminds me of Codename Iceman and other early games from Sierra. Great artwork, hope you can finish it!

Too bad, loved your last game. Still love the art style :)

In a shameless bit of self-promotion, I should add that if you enjoyed my last two games (subAtomic & Plan M), or just like the look of my writing style, you should check out my (reasonably priced) retail release, Astroloco: Worst Contact!

It's had some great reviews (AdventureGamers gave us 4/5 stars - www.adventuregamers.com/articles/view/24429), and I'm very proud of the overall level of polish.

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.
