Tall Grassby Lipedal - Jam Entry
Tall Grass - In which you get only one monster and you're totally fine with that.
You live in a world full of cute wild animals, ready to be encaged in high-tech pocket balls after a good beating. You gotta catch them all, says the TV, you gotta be a duel master!
But your personal urges are different. You just want to have one true good friend. Someone to play ball with and adventure into the forest.
Tall Grass is a tiny fable of cute monsters, friendship and football.
This is our first Ludum Dare entry! We tried to make something simple and tell a short story, using the PuzzleScript engine. We had some problems along the way, had to start again on Sunday night, but we managed to finish a game and have fun :)
This is also a little personal homage to Pokemon, our old childhood friend. Hope you like it, and please leave your feedback!
(also, feel free to hack it, improve it and add your own levels :D)

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.
