#YO10 - You Only Live 10 Seconds

by dremelofdeath - Jam Entry

Death row? YOLO! Prepare to fight for a few more seconds of life as you are thrown into a cage match with some of the most vicious convicts on death row. Who knows? It might be your last 10 seconds. Make them count.

Note: File size is 20+ MB! Web versions might take a quick second or two to load. Or, you know, three minutes. :D

Bullets of AK47 are not so noticeable

I feel like, with the rules of the game and it being so easy to get the kill, the 10 second time limit didn't even matter. In fact, I purposefully tried to live 10 seconds to see what would happen, but could never get there in either 1P or 2P modes.

Also, I didn't understand how the grenades work. They didn't always kill whoever was closest. In fact, half the time I wasn't even really sure why the match ended.

Bonus points for the title though. Very clever.

Neat little game! You should stop the counter when it reaches 0 (and not go to negative numbers). :)

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 ( 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.
