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.

Richard Was Afraid Of The Darkby Atmospherium - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Thanks for the feedback so far guys. This is my first time attempting to create a game, so I'm glad that the response has been this positive so far.
A few notes:
1) Concerning glitches - It sounds as though a few people are falling through the floors on a couple of the levels with larger drops. I've added the ability to reset a level (simply press the R key). This should minimize the impact of the bug while not altering gameplay in any significant way.
2) Concerning the theme (10 Seconds) - I ran out of time during development and was unable to integrate the parts of gameplay that tied into the theme. I'm as disappointed as you guys that I relegated the theme to just a passing reference in the text. I'll do better next time, I promise. ;)
3) Postmortem - I posted a postmortem blog on the game, and I'd genuinely like to hear people's perspective on what worked and what didn't. You can check it out here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2013/08/27/richard-was-afraid-of-the-dark-postmortem/
Thanks for the feedback so far. I'm liking most of the other games so far and I'm hoping to give feedback on as many games as possible over the next couple weeks.
WASD or Arrows to move;
R to reset level (in case of emergency)

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.
