SUPER ULTRA REALISTIC BOMB DEFUSAL SIMULATOR: SEASON PASS GOTY DLC EDITIONby tony.pe - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Hi this is a game that tries to address David Cage's argument that more polygons in games equates to more emotions in games.
This is a game where you clip wires and defuse bombs and save the world/universe/megaverse/ultraverse. You will have three seconds to memorize the randomly generated order in which you must clip wires. After that, you have seven seconds to click on each wire in that order to defuse the bomb.
If you win, congrats you get to do it over and over again forever. If you lose, congrats you go back to the main menu and can try again.
It is very intense and gritty and realistic and is on par with a scene from Breaking Bad where Walt Jr. is eating breakfast.
The theme for this Ludum Dare was TEN SECONDS, so while you are looking and wondering how this game applies to the theme I WILL TELL YOU how the theme of TEN SECONDS applies here:
1) How long does each round take (memorizing the order/defusing the bomb)? TEN SECONDS
2) How long did it take me to make each art asset? TEN SECONDS
3) How long did it take me to record each sound effect with my voice? TEN SECONDS
4) How long did it take me to record the obviously unique and catchy dubstep track at the main menu? TEN SECONDS
5) How long does it take you, the player, to experience everything this game has to offer? TEN SECONDS
6) How long did it take you to read all of these numbered points? Maybe TEN SECONDS, but maybe not, but for the sake of argument I will say TEN SECONDS.
I hope this game changes your life, thanks
I'm on Twitter if you're into that, @tonyperriello

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.
