Definition Quest

by ahm99 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Definition quest is about a person (named Gorund) trying to figure out what "ten seconds" means so he can make his Ludum Dare game.

////PLEASE READ////:
Make SURE you TALKED TO EVERYONE or you will not be able to win. Once you have, there are two people that let you beat the game (hint: they may say something like, "talk to me later")

Also, sorry for the footsteps and the lame gameplay.

ARROW KEYS to move
X to interact with NPCs (you must be in front of the NPC to talk to them)

Known issues (that I am too lazy to fix):
Some tiles are on the wrong layer so you can see through the wrong places (but you may not find it)

You can't talk to one character under certain conditions

Good work. Keep trying. You might make something good by the time you turn 10.

esdf is kind of weird, and the foot steps are kind of annoying, I like where it's going.

Annoying footsteps, but quite amusing :)

I don't think I made it clear enough that the game has an end, please read the description.

I won! (Because I didn't lose.)

Pretty funny game.

All I did was talk to people until I could talk to more people until I won. Not very engaging gameplay.

Interesting idea. I feel as though there is too much walking to do and not enough stuff to grab the player's attention.

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.
