Deep Jam Game

by Sabre070 - Jam Entry

It's a 2 player local multiplayer game where you have to dig up more gems than your opponent, with a twist!

You have to always be holding onto a wall (to either side of you) otherwise you'll fall!

It was the first project we've made in Unity and we think it turned out pretty well.

The Linux Download seems to be broken.
Feel free to send me a tweet @tinyworlds when it's working ;)

The game must be really fun to play ! I was alone but I think it must be enjoyable ! The idea of falling is good too. graphics are cool but not outstanding.
Maybe some bonus could add more fun !

the wall hugging mechanic was interesting - some kind of audio feedback for that would be good though

Sorry guys, didn't realise I wouldn't get notifications if people posted comments..

@Rick - Linux download was working on Suse, not sure why it isn't working for you, I'll shoot you a tweet :)

@td1801 - Thanks! This was our first attempt at using Unity and we didn't have an artist. We didn't want to add too much to detract from the core game - with 2 players it gets pretty intense.

@Ragzouken - We were quite happy with the way this turned out and were working in a reasonably loud room so audio wasn't much of a concern. We'd also have to learn how to put audio into Unity, though that shouldn't be much of a problem.

I am considering developing / polishing this a bit, thanks for the feedback! :)

Pretty cool, reminds me of the minigame in Mario Party where you dig for treasure

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.
