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.

00000010by Vile Smile - Jam Entry
A computer goes haywire when a stray byte gets set to 00000010. Now the world glitches out every two seconds! Run, jump, and wall slide your way to victory in this action platformer.
I thought it would be interesting to mess with how the theme could be understood. When thing I noticed was how the theme was written out numerically (10) and not grammatically (ten). I was experimenting with the idea of a game that swaps between states and I thought 10 seconds would be too long. So I decided that two (00000010) seconds would be better. Hooray for binary.
A most special thank you goes out to Chantraine, a most wondrous artist. Mooseloser, thank you for those FX. As well as General M for being someone to bounce ideas off of.
FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE PLAYED AND RATED THE VERSION I HAVE ALREADY POSTED, I have went back to the code to fix some of the more annoying mechanics (aka wall-jumping). I also added XBox 360 gamepad support; personally I find it feels much better that way. Please be sure to play AND rate the original version before playing this one as the rating should pertain to that version. Thank 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.
