Hold On: Your Last Breath

by epiplon - Jam Entry

Take a deep breath...
Now play.
In this game you gotta survive beneath the surface of the cold ice. The big difference between this and the other games is that you (yes, the one sitting on the pc chair) gotta hold your breath untill you find little air bubbles. If you can't hold it anymore, you're just dead.
We hope you live some fun desperation.
We are not responsible for dismay, anger, sadness or death. We are responsible for bugs and crappy drawings.
Don't cheat. It's not fun.
Thanks for playing our game! :)
We'll look forward to play yours.

The "not breathing" mechanic adds an interesting layer to the gameplay. I couldn't play too long because I got a flu, so my bubbles didn't work very much in real life, lol.

Heh, I liked the music, sounds like you played it for real?

I liked the player interaction. The scroll wheel controls were a little hard to get the hang of.

Took a while to figure out that I had to move my scroll-wheel rapidly back and forth to keep the player afloat. Comical game :-)

I like the idea of a game you have to play along with in real life. But what are the blocks supposed to do? Should I have someone throw a pillow at me every time I hit a block? ;)

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.
