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.

Grassroots Sambaby atuun - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You've decided to throw your hat into today's Chimerican presidential election. You probably should have started campaigning more than five minutes before the polls close though. Is *Ten Seconds* with each person on the street going to get you elected? You'd best hope so.
There's a tutorial in the game, but basically:
1)Click someone to speak with them. You can't talk to the same person twice!
2) They'll ask you some questions about your stance on certain issues. Try to answer as best you can.
3) The more favoured answers you give, the more they'll be inclined to vote for you (indicated by the bar at the top).
(You can press Enter to skip the opening quote and tutorial, if you wish).
This is my first entry into Ludum Dare. I'm happy with some parts of it (graphics & music), but it does have some bugs that only popped up in the last hour arggh. There isn't anything gamebreaking though. Just don't freak out if you win by a lot. Maybe I'll revisit this at some point, who knows. Hopefully you still enjoy something in this game! :)
Just remember: there may be better games in this competition. But none have more live saxophone solos.
Thanks for playing!

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.
