The Creature Belowby hissssssssss - 48 Hour Compo Entry
The first of hopefully several Post-Compo versions is up! It comes with a lot of changes and bugfixes.
After falling into a hole, you stumble on a frozen underground lake, and at its center, a palace of ice and stone. Can you brave the palace, and the creature lurking
beneath its depths, to find your way home again?
Search the dungeon for the tools that will help you escape.
If the creature gets too close to you, it will break through ice and snow to kill you, but on stone you have a little safety.
A, S - switch tools, if you have any
SPACE - use tools if you have any
Arrow Keys - move
SPACE will confirm at the title screen and continue at the Game Over screen.
Sounds like this wound up pretty difficult! Here are some tips:
1. If you stand on stone for a while, The Creature loses track of you and goes away for a bit. He`ll start hunting you shortly after you walk on ice or snow again. Use patches of stone to your advantage!
2. The Creature isn`t very maneuverable. Sliding in different directions while on ice helps keep him away from you.

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.
