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.

10corp - vittorioromeo - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is my first Ludum Dare competition.
The game is written in C++11, using only SFML2.1 and JsonCpp as external dependencies.
It is written using my personal "SSV framework", written from scratch, which is free, open-source and available on GitHub.
I couldn't manage to polish the game as much as I wanted to. There only are 7 playable levels, no gfx options, no key rebinding, et cetera.
Still, being my first Ludum Dare, it was a very interesting and learning experience and I'm glad (and surprised) I managed to create something (in my opinion) worth playing that could become a fun little game with additional polish.
Hope you enjoy my entry,
Linux users: native build is available, built on Ubuntu 12.04. Also, the Windows version works flawlessly on Wine.
Some people are having issues with OpenAL errors on Windows - replacing the existing `openal32.dll` file with the one from the OpenAL website may fix the issue.
`ARROW KEYS`: move around
`Z`: hold/release to grab/drop blocks
'R': restart current level
`ESCAPE`: go back to menu
`W/S/A/D`: pan camera
`Q/E`: zoom camera in/out
How to play:
Bring all the crates to the receivers to enable the teleporter. Walk on the teleporter to finish the level.
Numbered crates can only be received by numbered receivers.
Non-numbered crates can only be received by non-numbered receivers.
Non-numbered receivers can receive any kind of crate.
Grab the crates by keeping 'Z' pressed. Quickly turn and release `Z` to throw the crate. Jump right before releasing `Z` to give altitude to your throw.
Stack crates to reach high places.
When the first crate is grabbed, you have 10 seconds to bring any crate to a receiver, or you will be terminated.
When a crate is received, the 10 seconds timer is reset.
After all crates have been received, the timer stops and you can safely walk to the teleporter.

Level 6 is hard, but not impossible
Level 5, though, has a coding error (forgot a receiver at the bottom).
I assure you level 5 is possible though, even if INSANELY HARD.
I've come close to beating it a few times but failed. If you manage to beat it, big kudos to you!

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.
