Pool Party in Hell

by EricTheCoolDude - Jam Entry

OK, so this is obviously unfinished right now but hopefully you can still have some fun with it. We'll try to get a post-LD version finished within the week.

You're the life guard at a pool party in hell! Rescue anyone who starts to drown, and get rid of those pesky biker demons who want to ruin the fun for everyone.

There's no audio yet!

Move with WASD
Control the camera with your mouse
Left click to attack (Good for hurting biker demons)
Right click to pick up or drop a drowning person
Space to jump
R to restart

Game by (Olivia Bergström and Eric Bradford)

very good looking game. I am impressed that it's a two-man team. This is one of the highest rated game I've rated so far. No Audio it seems.

Just saved from drowning, right back in the pool, haha. That's how I like it.

Cute graphics! And I especially love the little dance the demons do - and how it changes from two demons to three demons.

It's a pity you didn't manage to finish it (especially audio-wise!), but it's playable and once can see in which direction you were going there. Good job on what you have so far!

PS: The biker demons seem pretty harmless to me. I almost feel sorry for punching them!

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.
