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.

Deathwish Dan - JHollands - Jam Entry
F3 TO SKIP FIRST LEVEL IF YOU'RE TIRED OF DYING!
This is my first game and my first Ludum Dare - a lovely stressful challenge. Deathwish Dan tends to die after 10 seconds in different places unless he does things. Yeah that's about it.
You might lose a couple of times if you're determined to win - press F3 on the first level to skip it if you're tired of the animation at the start - didn't have time to create an alternative. Nor did I have time to add any sound at all. You'll also notice that the game clearly gets more buggy/less attractive/more crude as you get closer to the unfinished, buggy ending - my bad.
Also it got a bit weird somewhere around the all-nighter area. I'm still not quite sure how the ending ended up that way.
Still, I achieved my main goals and am pretty happy with some of the art assets and animations. Looking forward to playing some other people's games now!
EDIT: Ha yeah ending is pretty screwed. Oh well it didn't make sense anyway!

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.
