August 23rd-26th 2013 :: Theme: 10 Seconds
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.

The Super Fair Trial Showby Gabriel - Jam Entry
Super Fair Trial Show is an arena shooter made in 72 hours that features massive procedural generation: arenas, monster behaviors, events and weapons!
*** PLEASE UNZIP THE WHOLE FOLDER AND MAKE SURE TO RUN AS ADMINSTRATOR!!! ***
The game uses one file external to the exe to handle IA, so this is necessary to have the enemies working - thanks for your understanding! ;)
WASD - Moves
J - Shoots
DOUBLE TAP WASD - dodges / dashes
HOLD J - allows to move around freely while keeping aiming and shooting to the same direction
(These commands are essential to have any chance in the game!)
In a dystopian future, traditional court judgements were considered too boring, and were replaced by a much more interesting system: broadcasted gladiator fights against genetically engineered monsters! You play as a convict trying to make his case by surviving the arena. Every 10 seconds, the audience votes for the introduction of a new rule! How's that for a fair judgement? :D
These last 3 days have been absolutely insane and earlier today we were still unsure if we would at all be able to submit due to bugs. Fortunately these last hours turned out ok, so we think everything is working. We hope you enjoy! Ah, and please let us know in the comments how far you got! :D

(FIX: we fixed the game over crash that would keep the player from returning to the main menu, and fixed whatever the problem was with the sounds)

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.
