How long does 10 seconds last ?

by AnnaGavaldaKedavra - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Controls depends of the screen :

Arrow keys

Ok there are a few bugs, sometimes you have to restart the game. [Some of them are fixed]
Ok i forgot a few basics : so depends on your computer u may not be able to take more than one thing on the first screen, sorry.

It's an interactive story so you don't hesitate to play a few times.

No time to finish everything, the "you save the crowd" story isn't there, i'm sorry. Plus no time for audio.

But i'll post a post-compo version later !

It's really nice, especially the transition between scenes and the ending sentence.
I had pleasure to try the different stories.
Also, the timing shield/asteroid was a bit hard to find the first times.

I played a few times and it got better each time. I reccomend everyone give it a few tries as on first attempt it is quite hard to realise the goal. collect everything at the beggining too! :) Great idea, superb atmosphere. My kinda game!

psychomonster : To kill those asteroids youhave to take the shield on the first screen then activate it with SPACE on the 3rd screen, just watch your timing.

Nice little game, pretty simple but well done, I dont think I understood it fully, but I featured it in a compilation video on Ludum Dare 27 games, if you want to check it out,

Such a touching game :) Too bad there is no sound. Great work though !

Ah, what a bittersweet ending. Lovely idea

Interesting mood and take on the theme. Also, loved the idea of using rhymes. You definitely have to play more than one time to get the grasp of it.

The game isn't much fun by itself, it really lacks audio, graphics aren't that good ...

I really loved how you linked the mini games through narration (that's what I tried to do too). Those verse are really lovely, and despite all the things i wrote above, it's still one of my favorite so far. I really dig this kind of experiences. I really feel it you would only need one more day of work to make it better (music, every endings, nicest "what button should I use" bubbles, and maybe, forgeting about the mouse thing, it's annoying to switch between mouse and keyboard, especially on a laptop".

I'm glad you lie it.

@Pierrec : Yeah your totally right, a few more hours would have been a bless. I'll post a post-compo version soon, wanted to do that sooner but didn't have time.

Really nice use of the theme, great story driven short game :)

Nice entry, good idea. However, the gameplay session are a little too hardcore (large planet, too much meteorite etc.), I understand the need to make choices but there are too little illusions about the possible success of some ways/strategy. Also I think you will win in replay value with more easy fun features.

you can move before you can see yourself, hahaha, but that's okay, great game!

Poetry and beauty... Finishing one ending I felt I just had to play all of them.
I couldn't seem to get anything different when I save the population, but that's ok.
Wonderful, wonderful entry!

Nice entry! I really like how there are different story lines. It's a pity there is no music, that would certainly add to the mood. :) Well done!

quite hard to figure out, what to do first, but when I got it, I was suprised about the different storylines

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.
