Murder Clown

by Just_delete_it - Jam Entry

"Under the surface"
We all find meaning when there may be none; searching for reason underneath the nonsense that is everywhere.

Oh, and a clown is just a person with silly make-up on. So that fits too. And this game is played in their mouth. Triple score.

I came hoping to enjoy a family-friendly clown-murdering experience for the PC, and left sorely disappointed. The game...was not available on the website.

My apologies, the game had a crash issue so I took it down for a quick fix. It is now 100% up and stable for PC play. Currently, I'm working on getting the web-version working again (GameMaker can be fickle at times).

This is the second time today I get to ponder whether something is genious or just plain madness. And I've only rated 5 other games so far. This theme might be too deep for me :D.

Certainly the best interactive clownscape so far though!

Return to real life? Yes please. Very funny and weird game that makes you eyes sparkle and bleed at the same time. Though is this really a game? I guess that's all just relative to the person who plays it.

This was by far one of the most memorable games. It was certainly creative. And despite the silliness, it was definitely not poorly put together, so bravo.

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.
