Title Goes Here

by YourLocalFaxMachine - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Left unfinished due to hatred toward written code and lack of will to cary on using it. It's playable, but only just. Also, no web capabilities because Applets were being dumb.

I started this with really ambitious goals for a full on story-based game with multiple different paths to take that would dramatically affect each story, each story only being playable once and in order. Right from the start, though, that was not clearly defined in my head. I started coding and designing without fully thinking of the best way to make sure things all work together and are flexible and easy to implement. Everything sucks.

Like I said, it's playable, but the story is very short and choppy and gameplay is just as not-good. Some textures look alright because they're only 3 colors and boxes and the rest were just meant to be placeholders. There were supposed to be five playable stories, but I only "finished" two.

Rate as you will with the above in mind.

Heh. The list you find with Sanchez made me chuckle.

It's obviously only a beginning but I enjoyed this. I would love to see it finished.

Hmm, I really tried to make progress in this one, but every time I showed an item to one of the companions it ended the game! Maybe I was winning. :) The control scheme was pretty awkward to me, as I kept forgetting which one was which.

Yeah, the controls were all just temporary and I didn't get around to finding a comfortable one for everyone. I love the concept of this game, but the execution was absolutely terrible (look at the source, you'll see why I stopped xD)

I might remake-and-finish this eventually, but I'm working on a few other things to make game dev (and Ludum Dare next time) a lot easier and still feel satisfied that I did it all.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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.
