Everything Explodes

by 23 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Push Z.


See boss, it's like this - they stick a couple of metaphors in a room, and they bring 'em down to near absolute zero, and then they gel up. Now, most people think metaphors are just ideas, that no matter how cold you get 'em you can't do nothing with 'em, but they'd be wrong. Get anything cold enough and you can stick a fork in it.

Anyway, this is where you come in - they didn't pull you out after thousands of years in freeze for nothing. When the metaphors set up they form this kind of crust that's stiff but brittle. If you can snap the crust the bits 'll fly off and can hit other crusts, but the eggheads can't hack the chain reactions and their computers are all worn out trying to get the breakdown. So, they pulled out the master of chain explosions - that'd be you.

So, all you have to do is blow everything up. But the catch is that once the explosions start going off the temperature goes up and everything goes to hell, so you only get one shot - make it count.

Pretty cool - some sound fx, and text within the canvas rather than pop-up would be an added bonus.

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.


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 ( 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.
