Ludom Dare

by sirGustav - Jam Entry

This was creaded as part of the sony hackaton event too #shld48 (we came second place) and as such required us to run on android and connect with a ps3 controller or a smart watch, we chose to connect to a ps3 controller.

You start with falling down a cave and your objective is to get out of the cave. You will stumble upon deadly traps (not really) like strange glowing mushrooms and falling rocks.

Controlls (PS3)
Left analog stick - Walk
Right analog stick - Look
X-button - Jump
O-Button - Turn on/off flashlight

Game title:
Ludom dare where the a in dare has a umlaut like this but for some reason the encoding shows it as Dåre instead. I'm not usre what the first word means, if anything, as the title is a play on words but the second means "crazy person" in swedish.

Could you possibly compile it for Windows or at least web, cause I don't have android phone, but this looks really cool + You are using unity so it shouldn't be that hard of a job

Your android link leads to a zip file. I have android and a ps3 controller, so I'd love to play. Maybe add some directions or something?

The android file should link to a apk that you put on your android device and install, how to actually connect the ps3 controller to the device I'm not sure how to do. The sony folks did that for us on their xperia tablet.

As for a build for windows/osx I can't really help you. I only have unity basic, and we had some problem building the pro project in basic.

Please post a video, or make windows build and allow xbox controller. This way you will get a wider audience. ( Remember there are some differences regarding the stick axis from xbox and ps3 controller )

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.
