Lestacby almightysuit - Jam Entry
UPDATE: we're making Lestac into a full game! You can preorder it on itch.io, more info is available on:
>>> http://amos.me/lestac <<<
Lestac is a bright and young man lost in a dull world. On his quest for a way out he will encounter several strange personages, which all crave for a special object (or two...). As a master of bargaining, Lestac will surely find a way to trade anything in exchange for some precious advice or items!
The game has an end - make sure to explore everything, there are hidden secrets all over the place!
Arrows (left, right): movement
Down arrow: crouch
Down arrow + shift: pick up item
Shift: throw or use item
Choose and take each item strategically as you can only carry one at a time!
TROUBLESHOOTING - if you have problems with the game, please paste your app.log somewhere and link to it in the comments so we can see what goes wrong.
- 1.0.0 Dec 17, initial LD72 release
- 1.0.1 Dec 17, crash fix on Windows/Mac where the game would keep too many files open
- 1.0.2 Dec 17, fix for disappearing items - they'll know warp from screen to screen even when not held by the player
- 1.0.3 Dec 18, more 'item disappear' fixes, along with
- 1.0.4 Dec 18, made it much easier to grab ledges
The changes above are minor, gameplay-breaking things that we've fixed - there's no new content, no new features, etc. - from the usual LD rules, that's fair game :)

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.
