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.

Here is my Lua/Love2d game, I hope you'll enjoy it!
The aim is to fill the timer by collecting clocks.
You can play either with the keyboard or a joystick/gamepad.
There are five levels.
Install love with your favorite package manager, then download FiveSeconds.love and run `love FiveSeconds.love' (or double click it in your file manager)
If you already have love installed, you should be able to run the .love file directly. You can also download FiveSeconds-windows.zip, unzip it, and run FiveSeconds.exe.
If you already have love installed, you should be able to run the .love file directly. You can also download FiveSeconds-macosx.zip and do whatever you need to do with it.
If you have a WebGL enabled browser, you can try the web version. It may be slower than the native version, though.
Update: I converted the wav sounds to Ogg Vorbis. Hopefully the problems that some are experiencing after collecting a bullet are gone now.
Update: Web version uploaded (you need a WebGL enabled browser). I have rather low FPS on my netbook but it's still kind of playable (I finished the game). On my work computer, it works just as well as the native version. I don't know if gamepads work in the web version, because my Chromium doesn't like WebGL and my Firefox doesn't like the GamePad API.

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.
