Pellet Runby Brodenino - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This my latest submission for the Ludum Dare. The thing you are playing as (the pellet) was firstly supposed to be a donut, and the back-story there was that the lady in the house tells you, the husband, that you may only have one donut today. She locks it in some sort of machine where you need to rotate it (the level) in order to receive the donut.
Well it didn't turn out this way. I changed the donut to a pellet, maybe for the sake of simplicity. Maybe it is a result of me having a migraine during the final submission day. The level itself looks more like a garden inspired by a level from Sonic the Hedgehog. And I have little idea to figure out a way to end the game with suitable art - what happens now is that the game goes back to the start menu instantly.
You control the level by moving the mouse towards the left or right. I tweaked it as much as possible to prevent seasickness. That camera hasn't been my best friend during the project, but now it turned out well I think.
If you want to restart the level the "loop" icon to the left is there to give you that. I know perhaps my UI should have
been made more clear. (And the exit button doesn't work in the web build)
I used Unity to create my submission, along with bfxr for sound effects, and abundant-music (a site that procedurally generates music). The graphics were made in paint.net.

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.
