Graveyard Shiftby Kortuga - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Here we have it, after 40+ hours of work, my very first Unity game... Graveyard Shift.
Play as Clive Hedgerton, the undertaker who has locked himself into his own graveyard on the night of the apocalypse. Fend off the baddies and buy tons of upgrades as you keep from being overrun by zombies, skeletons, and demon bosses. Out of curiosity, comment below if you found the hidden past of Clive Hedgerton.
6 Enemy types
9 Boss Enemies
A Dark And Brooding Past
HEY! OVER HERE!
HOW TO PLAY
WASD to move
Mouse 1 to fire
Mouse 2 to melee
Space to jump
E to interact with graves
Upgrades are located on certain tombstones! Try and find them all while fending off the hordes!
Your health is in the bottom left.
Your XP is above your health.
Your ammo is in the bottom right.
When a boss appears, its health is located in the lower center.
The Kill Timer is located in the top center.
The Kill Requirement to reset the timer is located below the timer. (Value is represented as "current kills / Need this many to reset the timer")
Thanks everyone for the feedback so far, and for those of you wondering how it fits the theme, you have to kill certain amounts of enemies before the 10-second timer runs out to reset it, or else you die; the number of enemies you have to kill to reset the timer increases as you play.
Thanks a ton for playing my game. If you liked it, please rate it! A good rating makes you feel good and boosts my self-esteem! Also, take a gander at N427's game, located here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-27/?action=preview&uid=7563
Happy Ludum Dare!

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.
