The YOLO game

by OniiRam - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In this game you are Subject039 and you have to run to escape from the laboratory (and from a big mecha trying to eat you alive).
You Only Live Once: each time you die you restart from the beginning.
You get only one life: collect every "O" you find in the game to unlock the ending.
Use arrow keys to move and jump.
Hope you enjoy the game! Leave a comment if you made it to the end!

Oh and remember to shout "YOLOOOOOO" while running through the laboratory!

You could arrange the difficult of the game, from the 1st for the 2 second it gets a lot harder, it could be better balanced.

This is actually quite fun, challenging though, but not too challenging. I like!

This game play is really good, but it gets so frustrating when I get past a big chunk of the game and have to start over from the very first room. Also #YOLOOOOOOOO

"...more O's than SpaghettiOs. #HARDCORE #YOLOOOOOOOOOOO!"

lol, for a second I thought this text box had correctly identified my misspelling of "SpaghettiOs" as "SpEghettiOs"(typo) but it still thinks the word is misspelled. :'(

I don't really like platforming and starting from the beginning after each death was an even bigger slap to the face :P. Well, I came here for the mecha-dinosaur and atleast you managed to deliver there!

I think the starting from all the way in the beginning is annoying. But there is some potential there :)

So many LD28 games say "each time you die you restart from the beginning" and that's really crap because it adds no fun or enjoyment to any game (well, almost any game). But I don't blame the individual developers, I blame the terrible choice of theme.

Anyway - looking at your game in particular, I found it quite tough, the graphics were very good and I liked the way the pick-ups and the HUD were identical - nice mix of the 'game world' and the 'player world' :) Overall great work.

I'm not sure if someone already mentioned it, but you get stuck on the left side of a platform. Savepoints would be really nice (I know, the theme...) :D

Pretty simplistic take on the theme but overall pretty nice, although the platform collisions sent me to rage city a few times ;)

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.
