The Coolest Kids on the Block

by vrld - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Those freshman are the coolest kids on the block. They are so fresh! And their dog-tags are so awesome! What would you give to have one too!

You ask if you can join their gang. They tell you to complete three challenges to earn your own dogtag:

You only get one if you can prove your worth.

The cross-platform version requires LOVE 0.9 to run -

Peer pressure: it's not for everyone. Enjoyed the humour! Also the somersaulting was pretty good fun.

Cool 90's vibe. Making all the minigames skippable takes away the feeling of accomplishment that you gain when completing them. The ending was abrupt. The somersault game was fun and oh so satisfying to land

I'd jump off a building to get accepted by a group of cool kids.

Don't like that graphics stile that much but nevertheless the graphics were good.

I enjoyed it!

Haha cool game! Reminds me on new kids on the block. A minigame collection was also our idea, but in the end we only had one scene :).

LOL. This was really funny. Peer pressure makes you do crazy things.

LOVED the dudes, especially the guys with the blue and pink shirts. The policemen mini game is also just my taste ... which I don't seem to have!

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.
