The Last Bulletby Toureiro - Jam Entry
YOU ONLY HAVE ONE bullet left! But not to worry. As a super spy you're a qualified field surgeon and plucking the precious bullet from the guts of the fallen death-pinch-robots shouldn't be a problem. But don't get cocky. Too many robots can overwhelm you and reloading that bad boy can feel like an eternity. You might as well just toss it in a pinch. Not as effective, but f*ck it! There will be no pinchy business today!
First LudumDare and first time making a game for one of us!
What went right:
-Creating a mechanic that fit the theme.
-Fun idea that lead to a few laughs.
-Working with a great graphic designer.
What went wrong:
-Pretty much EVERYTHING! xD
-Only working on Sunday and Monday night just before the deadline.
-86% of time just wrestling with bugs and problems from trying to use 2D for the first time in a workflow that doesn't support it yet and ending up making a mess of 2D with 3D stuff.
-Still more bugs in the submission than in Starship Troopers.
-No actual programmers on the team.
-No time left to make it feel good, fun or fair!

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.
