Stranded - Try to survive for 1 minute while monsters from the sea try to eat you!

WASD/Arrow keys: Movement
C: Try to craft something (while you have wood & stones, it makes a fire)
Space: Attack & mine & cut trees & light trees on fire
ESC in lose/win screen: Go back to main menu

I was kinda in a hurry and forgot to implement the score system.

NOTE: You need Java 7 to run this. (I think so at least, tell me if it runs on 6)

Check out the timelapses (day 1 & 2 in different videos) here:

That was fun. I like it. When I had ten seconds left I stopped killing the monsters and started to run away from them.... I have like 50+ on the screen :D Still won though!

Simple To Understand, But Difficult To Accomplish. i like It. my Only Gripe Is The Weird Hitboxes For Using The Axe.

Pretty nice! Almost more fun to dodge the monsters than kill them.

Really nice gameplay! It also had a really cool concept! I was able to win when I got to the end and I used my campfire at about 10 seconds.

First of all, a try again button would be very good since it asked me many permissions each time I refreshed the page.

I really like this game concept. Depending on what you choose, the strategy and the game itself is completly different ! Good job here.

However, I don't understand what to do when I choose the lighter, I try to press C in front of the wood, nothing. Rock nothing. So any clue ?

Overall, pretty strong entry !

I like the use of the theme! Kind of that classic "if you were trapped on a desert island" question. I'm not sure it's how it was intended, but I won by using the lighter on the tree... then singing the Benny Hill theme tune for 18 seconds XD

@lordjosephdeburg I think you have an old version of Java.

@Masadow Yeah, I could've told that you can press esc in the end screen to restart :'D Also, the lighter lights the tree up when you press space.

Sorry guys, my domain name expired (I think) so now I don't have a website. I'll make a new one but it'll take a day or two. Meanwhile, you can download the html & jar so you can play it.

@Ariake81 I think you have an old Java version. (Do you have Java 6?)

Something surprisingly satisfying about this. Unless I am missing something it seems that if you want to stand any chance, you use the Axe. Not beat it yet, have managed to get within 3 seconds :D

Funny small goodie. Even though I don't have much to do, it still deserves a solid 3 overall!

Very fun, yet the controls are a little confusing

Interesting game, pretty good, especially considering you made it in java, which doesn't have high level support for games, only low level stuff like lwjgl and such.

A bit too easy and the pistol is very overpowered. Overall though good effort and nice use of pixel graphics

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.
