This is Juan.

Juan is a victim of Iritable Bowel Syndrome. This morning, unaware of the fact that unabsorbable carbohydrates are the main cause of flatulence, Juan was sitting at home enjoying a lunch of beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, artichokes, raisins, pulses, lentils, onions, prunes, apples, Brussel sprous, and many more such ill-advised choices.

So engrossed was Juan with his food that he failed to notice the alien invasion that had begun in the world outside, and so he was no doubt surprised when his house was demolished, and his lunch scattered throughout the world.

The principal components of a defense against an alien invasion might be siad to be the following:
1) A group of able diplomats willing to negotiate with the extraterrestrial leaders.
2) A team of trained scientists ready to analyse the alien race, in order to gain a better understanding of their biology, society, and weaponry.
3) A well trained army prepared to do what it takes to protect humanity.

Unfortunately, you only get Juan.

I really rushed at the end, and as such the game, is only just barely playable. I will try to get this sorted out.

Q. Is this racist?
A. Only slightly.

I met only one alien, the invasion can't be too bad ;) Was fun to play, but I fell through the ground twice and didn't feel like trying again :)

First off I would very strongly encourage you to play and rate others' games. Else you will get very few rating yours (4 so far, 5 with me). I got to the end of the second level but Juan wouldn't squeeze down the underground path and nothing happened at the end on top. I really like the way J. runs, actually quite similar to how our protagonist moves.

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.
