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.

Like a Lambby dook - Jam Entry
The Lamb has summoned you to his depraved little congregation to find the killer and traitor among them.
You join the Lamb's creations and must figure out which of them is the killer. Every ten seconds, the killer chooses another victim from a set of simple rules:
- Always kill one of the weakest members.
- If among the weakest members, panic, and kill one of the strongest.
There are three creatures, descending in strength: the Hyena-headed Furies, The Stags, and the weakest Cherubim.
- WASD + mouse
- Click to accuse a creature
- E or Space advances text
- Backspace restarts the game
- Escape to free the mouse from the webplayer (as normal)
I'm entering the jam instead of the compo because I ran out of time. I spent too much time on sound, graphics etc., but I'm rather happy with the result. The mood and style is pretty much the way I wanted it to be.
The graphics are made from scanned in drawings and most textures are simply high-contrast scans of paper. Most sounds (except the tick-tock) are made by me.
I haven't tested the Windows version in a whole lot of resolutions, so especially the text may look a little weird in some cases. Use the webplayer if you can.
I may upload a post-jam version with better rules for the killer, as it stands now you can't be sure to play a perfect game (i.e. letting the exact number of creatures die needed to know who the killer is).

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.
