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.

Angry Guardsby Diptoman - Jam Entry
The aim in the game is to coordinate a prison break by controlling characters for 10 seconds each.
Every level consists of 3 stages:
>Selecting phase: Click on characters in the order in which you wish to control them. You can control 4 characters max.
>Character control phase: You have 10 seconds with each character you've selected to do stuff. Use the arrow keys to move around, and Ctrl to interact with objects. All other characters will be in a dazed state at this point, so they won't react to your actions.
>Final control phase: All characters will become aware and act accordingly (Eg. If a guard sees a prisoner free, they will fight and knock each other out). There is no time limit in this phase, and you're free to move our hero to the exit.
Apologies for the rushed up instructions, did not have enough time to create a proper tutorial, with college and all.

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.
