Cosplay Cleanup Crew

Cosplay Cleanup Crew is a Turn-based Tactics game where you must rid your garden of hellspawn, featuring multiple difficulties and randomly generated maps. As the name implies, your group is composed of cosplayers, and so each only gets 1 hp. Use the group's abilities to your advantage, and exploit the enemy's weaknesses to win!

Be sure to read the readme for a comprehensive guide to the game.

Game is written in c# using XNA. Music was done in TuxGuitar. Art was done in Paint.NET.

If you have XNA already installed, you can run the .exe that's in the debug folder, otherwise you will need to run the setup, which will install XNA and the game.

Standalone and Mac/Linux ports coming soon. (Hopefully)

I liked the variety of the characters and enemies. The simple graphics style was well matched by the smooth movement between each tile.

My biggest suggestion though would be to change the controls to be a little more intuitive, it's a little bit tedious to reach for page up and page down so many times each turn.

Nice game!

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.
