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.

Right Trigger - Elemental Charge Shot
Left stick - Move
Oh no! The evil Aeronox forces have sent our planet into hyper orbit, sending us spiraling out of
control and fast forwarding our years at breakneck speed! The seasons change every 10 seconds, and EcoStar's
elemental beams are going haywire. Aeronox forces that spawn during a given season inherit that season's
specific elemental traits.
How To Play
Spring - Water
Summer - Fire
Autumn - Earth
Winter - Ice
EcoStar's charge beam and shield pickups also utilize the current season's element.
Use the correct anti-element to quickly destroy shields and large foes.
Water extinguishes fire
Fire melts Ice
Ice withers Earth
Earth absorbs Water
The player shield protects only against attacks of the same element, while enemy shields can only be
destroyed by the anti-element.
Kills earn points that reward the player with item drops (shield, fire rate boos, spread increase).
Defeat the final wave to win the game, save the planet, and claim your reward!!!
During a bugfix I accidently made all enemies spawn as Water. I've fixed this and pointed the "Windows" link to the fixed version! // Ditto

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.
