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.

I'll Give You A Head Startby Tifu - 48 Hour Compo Entry
I've uploaded a version which should fix a bug that was causing massive slowdown for many players, this was a minor change just editing one line of code, so I think this is permitted within the rules. If you disagree however, I have left the buggy version up for you to vote on instead.
A teenage girl explores an abandoned boarding school in search of Emily, the ghost of a young girl who died there years ago. But when she finds her, she finds the ghost doesn't want visitors...
You get 10 seconds before Emily will begin pursuing you, if Emily touches you, you die. Explore the school for items that can help you and clues on how to escape.
Left mouse to interact with things - open/close doors, pick up/drop items, investigate [!] marks for information.
Right mouse to run, but you can only run for a total of 10 seconds.
WASD or arrow keys to move around.
Press space to pause. If you pause you get a description of the item you are holding. Not every item has a use, but every item that relates to Emily in some way does - read clues to find out which ones relate to her.
Emily will start off slow, but she gains speed the longer you take. If you play on "impossible" (which might very well be impossible, I haven't really tested that mode thoroughly) she can get very fast. I recommend playing on the normal mode.
The layout of the map is the same every try, but the location of items is randomised between set points, as is your starting position.

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.
