PLUNGE

by rogerpaffrath - Jam Entry

Made with Twine.

Still a work in progress, if you manage to find a storyline that actually comes to an end, let me know what you think of it! ;)

Oh man, I ended up in prison and the game narrative stopped right when a riot broke out! What happens afterwards, I must know! (well I guess I jump to my death, but what leads me to that, I was a good guy man!)

Good start, but not done as I understand it?
Keep it up!

Very nice opening. Once the main plot starts, it's not incredibly original, but that's not really a problem: getting to live an entire life in Choose Your Own Adventure form is a fun and solid idea. The writing is good, and I like what you've done with the background colour.

I gave it a low Overall score because of its unfinished state (I still haven't found a storyline that ends), but this is good enough to deserve a finished post-compo version.

Some typoes I found: "being flying" should be just "flying"; "birds feels" should be "birds feel".

I like this. Keep working on it!

Pretty cool. Not the usual game, but I like a good choose-your-own-adventure.

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.
