10 Seconds

by kannas - Jam Entry

The rule is simple: you can shoot after 10 seconds.
A minimalistic experience, that will show if you are a player of honor or someone that cheats at the first occasion (or that isn't capable to count to 10). The only control is the SpaceBar.

Have fun :)

WOW! So much style. The gameplay perfectly fits the theme and everything from the great pixel art and unusual frame size stand out to make this one of the most unique games I've played so far. Great Job! This is my first game that I've given 5 stars to.

This is very well put together! It may not be a super exciting game... but it was a worth-while experience. I love the end results, and the square sun :P haha. Overall, pretty awesome! Nice job!

Cool game, but is there a way to restart without having the full intro?

Beautiful animations on the hat and cloth.. very impressive visuals and interesting take on the theme. The clean consistent typography throughout adds a lot to the aesthetic. Very well done, one of my favorite games so far. Rated highly.

Short and simple, but really nice. Graphics and sounds are done/used very well.

Excellent graphics and animations! This game is very reminiscent of the old Sergio Leone westerns. Great job!

I cannot get that you won screen for love nor money on the web version even when he pulls his gun a split second after me. Just me?

haha, actually there isn't a "you won" screen anymore. However i just modified the text that appears when you win to make it more clear :)

Nice mood, and great use of the theme =) . It takes a while to retry, though, which can be a bit frustrating.

Oh man! Your graphics is so pretty! I loved the mood. My only wish was for a old western music (like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly theme). I AM NO CHEATER. I just can't count in milliseconds! :P

@Kannas Phew, I saw the text was different but thought my sense of time after playing so many 10 second games was forever warped.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 10:40am

i love the game, awesome

The mood in this was incredible.
Apparently I have a very bad sense of time, since I always either die "honorable" or a cheater ;)
Great work!

Yes! The audio track is so atmospheric! Took me a couple of goes before I "got" what was happening, but the fact it wasn't explained made it cool.

I love the aesthetics... perfect! This should have two player mode on the same keyboard though. That would be awesome!

kannas says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:59pm

@mrspeaker working on it tomorrow :3

This is a great take on the theme, different than most other games I've seen.
It's very stylish and good looking. I really like how there's more than one way to finish the game, and the quotes are really nice.

Simply put, great work!

wow, awesome mood here. I always wanted to make the perfect cowboy duel game, here will be an inspiration.
Really nice job on the audio and art, I like it a lot

Really amazing little game here. Love it and love the different endings!! I featured it in my Ludum dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

Love the mood in this. After trying a couple of times, I discovered that I am not a honorable man. Solid game :)

Excellent implementation of the "count to ten" style. Graphics and sound are very nice. Mood was superb.

Sep 10, 2013 @ 2:16am

i really liked the overall minimal approach. this was present in the audio, the core gameplay and the controls.

Nice one :) A good idea well-executed. A lot of work clearly went into the choice of sound, it really creates an interesting mood. It's regrettable that the two bandits are carbon copies. Also: honourable win mo'fo's XD

The graphics are fine and all, but in my opinion it takes to long to get from the start screen to the actual match. good one though.

Sep 15, 2013 @ 1:52am

hmmmm very stylish feel. 5 stars

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.
