Brother

by lando walters - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Here is the game. It is a text-adventure containing references to plenty of films,games,novels and music. It's not as long as I had hoped (took some time off to go watch the hobbit), but I'm still generally pretty happy with it.
The objective is to get to work, but your brother (and the rest of the world) seems to be doing his best to stop you
Have fun.
(Also, to anyone who didn't get the joke with the logo,http://www.christopherfielden.com/short-story-tips-and-writing-advice/book-and-novel-competitions.php)
See, the name is a spoof on the album. This is also my use of the theme. There is only one brother in the game (fairly loose, I know, but I had quite a bit more planned, that never made it to the final game.)

I was not able to execute your game. I am running Ubuntu 13 and do not have wine installed. I'll check back later!

.exe will only work on Windows without the use of Wine or similar

solluxx: You should be able to just double click on it... You will need to have python installed.
@LD_LAN_Party: Thanks.

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.
