Wierd, it's not showing the web link, maybe because there is a port number?

Awesome! Played this last night just after voting, was a bit confused by the score tracking, but loved the games. The volleyball was great.

Server is up, but I don't see the game itself after the connect screen.

Yeah sorry, trying to get it to be stable. The server is staying up now, but if box2D crashes it's messed until I can ssh in and restart the server.

I should probably just let it crash and use node forever to reboot it from the static html server.

Anyway, I added a link to the logs so you can see if it's up or not, and will keep tinkering ;)

No goal, just to play around. Also, good news: I'm pretty sure the server is stable, it might crash but it will be back up in seconds.

Playing live with other Ludum Darers? Well, that's pretty awesome. I had quite some fun with my new friends anon and anon :)
The volleyball game is the best. Very nice entry!

Well I had a lot of fun, mainly because I wasn't alone I guess :D. (ps : I was O.o)

Shame I played this alone as I can see it being very good fun in multiplayer. The handling or the player rectangle doesn't feel quite right and the even alone the experience felt laggy. However it has box2d, a good range of mini games for the weekends work, chat, it's certainly feature rich.

Fun game! It would be nice to have a chance to recover from falls, a lot of the platforms were too high to get back up on.

I found the controls frustratingly slippery so that by time I managed to move where I wanted to the round was over.
Online multiplayer minigames is a very cool concept- but unfortunately I was by myself so didn't get to experience this as intended.

We have also made a multiplayer game, and we definitively know it's hard to manage. So I really consider it a great feature of this game.
Lovely! :)

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 ( 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.
