Emergency Stop

by agrdev - Jam Entry

Emergency Stop is an epic story about people surviving after the terrible global cataclysm...
Just kidding! :P
This game is pretty simple! Rotate the Earth during 10 seconds as fast as you can and you'll see an awesomeness :)

Mouse wheel - rotate the Earth (scroll it as fast as you can!)

The main goal is to reach maximum score. Leaderboard is under construction by now. Put your score in the comments if you wish.

Simple but great style! :D Though you should probably keep in mind not all people have working mousewheels ;) I haven't really seen the mousewheel used as the only control in a game before haha. Also the particles could use some more effects... But otherwise cool idea

At first I was like, this is a simple game. Then 10 seconds was up and I died of laughter. The music was perfect and the game play was simple. It made my day hearing the people fling away at the end.

Short, sweet and hilarious. Think it's the first LD27 game I played that had humor in it. Good job!

Hah. OK. That was cute. Well produced.

I wonder if this is an area where those gaming mice come in handy? I got about 4.5 mil

I love that it is such a simpel game. Good job!
I used the trackpoint to scroll at first, because I wasn't in reach of a mouse. If I do that, I don't have to do that much. It feels a bit like cheating I guess :P On the technical side, I can't seem to be able to see the whole screen when I run it on Ubuntu.

Good stuff! What you haven't accounted for is that I have a scroll wheel that can spin really fast for 5 minutes without any help from me :P

I don't seem to be able to finish this game, the timer reach 0, i see particles (people?) being launched from earth, but it just keeps spinning, and nothing else happens :(

Neat concept! And it would be not all that great if not the title of the game! :D

Btw, after I figured out what's the best strategy it was easy to achieve insane score of 41,168,740,000. Didn't know there's so many. :D

Ha ha, I love this!
So simple, yet so good. Awesome use of mouse wheel. Perfect selection of assets (although a little bit of a shame that it appears none are of your own creation).

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 ( 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.
