Forgotten Child

by mobyvb - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Child Protective Services is coming to check in, and you forgot your child at the supermarket! The roads are icy and everything else is covered in a foot of snow. Use the arrow keys to drive, but be sure to move fast! You only have one minute before CPS comes.

That's a fun game, and funny premise too. Nicely done!

It would be nice if there was a sharp deceleration when hitting the snow instead of an immediate stop. It made the penalty for hitting the snow quite high and what frustrated me was completely losing any momentum. I am in a car, I want to go, go, GO! Nice work. :)

Moral of the story: not only am I a child neglector, but I'm also a cheating drunk barely able to control the car. ;) But I had fun nevertheless.

Could do with some obstacles like traffic (although the game itself was really hard) but the gameplay itself was pretty good.

Wow this is fast and crazy to control! :D I love the pacing of the game, really nice work. :) Would be cool if the white space didn't grind you to a direct halt, however I rated this highly for fun. :)

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.


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.
