Ludum Dare 29
Vertico - UltimateWalrus - 48 Hour Compo Entry
A 2D isometric "three degrees of freedom" shooter. Dive beneath the ice and fight creatures while moving in any direction in 3D space, navigating a vertically-oriented coral reef.
In normal mode, you'll need to return to the surface for energy --- make sure you make a trip whenever your energy gets below half.
Made in Clickteam Fusion 2.5 (which you'll need to view the source code).
More of my games are at ultimatewalrus.com.
NOTE! I do plan on expanding this game a little bit because, while I feel the contest entry is a complete product, I really enjoyed making the environment and creatures and want to do more in the future. If you want to hear about it when I develop this game further you can follow me:
You can also support me by going here and buying Beat Bros, or at least wait for it to come out on Steam :]
POST COMPO VERSION NOW AVAILABLE!
If one of the people who found it hard to navigate in the 48-hour compo version, could playtest the post-compo version and leave a comment about it, I'd be very grateful! I've worked hard to make it very easy to navigate in 3D space.
Changes in post-compo version:
* Various bugfixes and optimizations.
* Much better lighting effects.
* Player has a shadow and side-radar that aid in positioning.
* HUD improvement
* Ambient track volume tweaked.
More to come in the future. This game's permalink is: ultimatewalrus.com/vertico

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.
