Second Baseby BeardoGames - Jam Entry
Hey all! Here at Beardo Games we've got all kinds of weird ideas that we try and wrangle into game form. "Second Base" is one that we've had a ton of fun working on, from late Friday brainstorming over plenty of beer to a backache-inducing Saturday through Monday spent in front of our respective laptops to bring this game from our brains to your computer. We're Miles (artist/musician) and Chris (programmer), and this was our first Ludum Dare. We hope you like our game!
Your goal is to get to 10 Second Bases with the women you meet at the ten locations of the game. To get to second base you first have to succeed at first base, so let the kissing begin!
Click to select a photo, then click on it again to start the level.
Press Left arrow (or A) to extend your tongue. If your tongue's not out, you're not kissing, and if you're not kissing you're losing point each second.
Press Up or Down arrows (or W and S) to move your tongue up or down, or just leave it be to match how she's kissing (HINT: the more you match what she does, the better you're doing in the game).
Press Space to do a SUPER TONGUE KISS, but beware: do it too long and she'll get sick of it.
Succeed at kissing for long enough and you make it to SECOND BASE!!!
Can't quite get the hang of it? That's too bad, cause if too much time passes, she'll get tired of your lousy kissing skills and you'll get dumped back out to the level select screen.
(DEVELOPER'S NOTES: there's still a bit left that we wanted to include but NO TIME. For instance, you can play levels over and over, there's no real fail screen, no nasty tongue and mouth sound effects, and so on. All of that's coming in the future though!)
UPDATE: New download links! Our hosting for the old location was having some major sketchiness that should now be fixed. Enjoy!

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.
