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.

Blackoutby X-0r - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Okay, I hope it's not against the rules, submission hour and everything (or does uploading within that hour count regularily?). I know that the SWF I linked is 5 mins AFTER the end of the competition. (3:05 AM my timezone) However, my source files have been uploaded within the timelimit, and there are no changes to my build. I simply picked the wrong link from my countless backups on Mediafire.
EDIT: Asked on IRC, they told me it's allowed to fix bugs of some sort. Fixed the wincondition bug =) And, I reuploaded my stuff to mediafire for actual working links...
Out of nothing, you are hit by a baseball bat. You don't know what happened, just that you passed out for 10 seconds. Clear up the mystery and stop the attacker!
If you see the title screen again, you win.
Look at tile you stand on: <Space>
Select action: Mouseclick to the top right
Warning! The controls are a bit counter-intuitive.
You need to stand NEXT TO a tile to interact with it, standing ON a key won't get you anywhere. (Unless you hit <Space> first :P)
Used Flash and Blender for the graphics. Blender specifically for the tesla-coil things, and the staircase.
I was wondering, "how can I actually make the stairs look like they go up or down?"... Solution - make them in a 3d program :D As for the coils - I just like glow effects and rendering these is way easier than using Flash. At least for me...
I also created all SFX plus the background music from scratch. I used REAPER and a couple of free VSTi plugins.
You can also check my other music on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/x-0r
If finding the first keys is too hard, just look for a flash of yellow.
If you can't figure out the combination to start the machine, remember what the colored guys told you.
If you still can't figure it out, try bruteforcing it, or decode my message with rot 13:

If you return to the title screen, you win. Not enough time to link to the "you win" message correctly, sorry =(
All that's working so far is the mapgeneration. Not really much, but hey, we all start somewhere^^
Character movement is working. Also, it can (more or less) interact with tiles now. It's all still very beta. Too bad the theme isn't "minimalism", or I could just keep these graphics. Speaking of which, I totally plan to get better sprites, or at least change the colors^^
New tile designs, probably still temporary. Also, I added interactive buttons to the user interface. Yay :P
User interface added. It can now show you text :P
Changed the movement stuff a bit. Also, I want to let the user select numbered options or something...
Added stair sprites, I can't believe I really used Blender to render out a 30x30px image :D
Teleporting and stair-map-changing is now possible ^_^
Added item-collection system, locked/unlocked doors, updated the movement stuff and... yeah, that's about it.
Will move on to soundFX as soon as my gf gets up. She wouldn't give me an easy time if I waked her...
Oh yes. My soundtrack is ready. It will do for the competition, might edit it later, should I have more time.
The only downside is that it will require more time to open/download. But hey, it's below 2 MB.
More NPCs, more items. Still didn't implement the main plot. Oh well, still some time left...

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.
