The One

by The Pirate Duck - Jam Entry

Well, it's supposed to be an interactive story with funny dialogues, but it's rather, how to put it, unfinished. The controls are WASD, Shift and E. You can also press nothing - it also counts as an answer!

Haha, well, I wasn't expecting it to be an actual one. Haha. The dialog system was a bit weird, the first time I played the game I got to the one and hadn't said anything - and in the hallway walking up I felt like I didn't have enough time to respond (I was walking and by the time I had finished reading he was like, oh so you are going to pretend like nothing happened ..). I crashed trying to turn the sound down in the middle (that walking sound drove me nuts.)

On the second play through I realized you were supposed to press and hold, I feel like that could have been made a little clearer. I didn't realize you could run until my third play through which made the first two really, really tedious and slow. I explored everything in the second play through before jumping off, I guess that's the unfinished part :P On the third I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something else to do in the security room, and so I just stayed in there and tried to hit another button ... well.. bad idea, haha.

Cool attempt though, a lot of potential for sure!

Hmm, I was thrown out two times for pushing buttons in security room. And its too far to run there again... -_-

It's pretty funny. Too bad it's unfinished.

On my first play through I couldn't get dialog to work at all, even after reader john_conder9's comment. I never would have understand dialog at all without that comment.

It gets high points in humor.

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.
