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.

Every 10 Seconds a Window Washer Falls to his Deathby dom2d - Jam Entry
Based on an article on the Onion of the same name exaggerating the rate at which window washers die, our game sends you, with a jetpack, to save these poor cleaners from a horrible death. Read it, it'll explain how we're following the theme! (Plus the ropes take 10 seconds to break :P )
Fly around with WASD or the Arrow keys.
How to Play:
Heal ropes by flying over them, kick birds and save falling cleaners!
In Hardcore mode, the game is over at first death.
In Chaos mode, a death meter fills up with each dude splashed on the ground - don't let it fill up completely and try to clean 100% of the building!
- You can bounce off the edges of the screen, left, right, bottom and top. Use this technique to keep your momentum when switching directions!
- Some low-flying birds aren't a menace, don't waste time kicking them... unless you really just want to kick ALL THE BIRDS!
- You can heal two ropes at a time if you position yourself right in between the two!

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.
