10 Seconds In Hellby tylorlilley - 48 Hour Compo Entry
I completed my first Ludum Dare! Hurray!
10 Seconds in Hell is an old-school Adventure style exploration game in which the protagonist travels to Hell to search for the heart of his departed dearest one. Even the purest of souls do not last long in Hell, however... perhaps not even 10 seconds!
This game has some randomly generated elements to it elements to it to ensure that the experience is varied and different each time you play. Death is permanent, however, so do your best to avoid each of the seven deadly sins, as you will only have one shot at each of the loaded world configurations once!
If you've already beaten the game, you can try to improve on your performance and get a better score, or even aim to unlock the deepest, darkest secrets of hell by discovering the game's secret second ending...
Whatever you do, have fun, and good luck! You'll need it if you want to last more than 10 seconds in Hell.
!Important! EDIT 8/26/2013:
Small edit to fix game-breaking bug. If you already downloaded this game and want to play it again, please, download this version instead! Its a good thing I caught it so quickly; only a few people have played it so far. :)
These are listed at the end of the intro at the beginning. In case you forget though, the are:
ARROW KEYS: move around/push blocks/open doors/open chests
Z KEY: light a torch/begin playing
X KEY: pick up/put down an item
C KEY: take out a key
BACKSPACE: restart game/skip intro.
SPACE: pause/unpause the game.
F4: toggles full screen mode
F9: Take a screenshot
Hope that helps! Have fun, and be prepared to lose... a lot! :)
For those who enjoyed the game itself, I have continue to work on it and improve it over the last few days, and will be coming out with an updated version with some more features and less bugs than the competition version. You can download it on my website here: http://tylorlilley.com/
But PLEASE only play it AFTER you've played AND rated the competition version. It would be unfair to have your criticisms skewed by a better version, and I have no interest in cheating! Haha.

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.
