In the potentially-distant media-hyped future, a new game show has appeared!
Touting itself as the most deadly game show in existance, players are thrown on top of a tall skyscraper, fighting off various enemies while evading the staple of the series:
Every 10 seconds, some of the tiles below will rise and destroy everything in their path!
Objective: Rack up points and stay alive.
WASD - Do you really have to ask?
Mouse Left - Navigate and shoot.
R - Manual reload.
1-3 and Mouse Up/Down - Switch weapon.
F4 - Fullscreen toggle.
ESC - Really?
Health is the green bar in the top right.
Ammo is the small number underneath your weapon icon.
Clip ammo is the big number under your character name.
Points are clearly marked on the right.
Ammo pickups give you two clips worth of ammo for whatever your current selected weapon is.
- Movement is a bit broken: It's possible to escape the arena.
A quick idea that I'm quite happy with.
I had a lot of problems, but it finally came together and I'm glad to have participated once again in this madness.
The character select screen is the most unfinished, for sure, but ah well, at least it works.
Everything you see and hear was produced from scratch in the allotted time period, no base code or otherwise.
GameMaker Studio (Graphics and Code), Ableton Live (Music and SFX) and Audacity (GM is odd about ableton's WAVs, so I ran them through Audacity as a fix.)

You must sign in to comment.
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.
