YOGO Submarinesby lilinx - Jam Entry
My first LD! This is a two-players (seated) game about submarines chases, invisible underwater mines and sonar detection.
YOU ONLY GET ONE EARSET FOR TWO so you have to share it.
(each player only get one earphone).
The most important thing is to make sure you're listening to the right channel! Check this on the instruction screen (use your controls : you should hear your sound).
red player (left) - w/a/s/d
green player (right) - arrow keys
Press ESC anytime to go back to title screen
HOW TO PLAY?
- Chase your opponent when it's your turn to attack
- Mines are hidden underwater
- Different sounds tell you where are the adjacent mines.
- Learning the meaning of sounds is a matter of trial-and-error.
If you're confused about how to play, go to CHEAT MODE.
EDIT : In my experience the game is funnier with the following settings : 240 seconds (or more), and 8 mines. It will also be more challenging and will ask for more concentration. Try various settings and tell me if you find other interesting options!
You will need a sound system that supports stereo (most do).
The French controls "zqsd" work too.

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.
