La Mer

by SwedishCheese - Jam Entry

In La Mer you take control of a submarine on a quest for treasure. Can you find the treasure chest before your oxygen supply depletes?

I made this game with the help of my good friends Polyducks and JFK. Without them I wouldn't have been able to make this game. Though this game isn't particular content heavy at this time I feel like it was a success for me as a developer since I'm pretty new to this. I plan on continue working on this project and make a proper game out of it.

to me, a game where you can't loose isn't really a game! You should put a solid gameplay before fancy graphics; just an advice for your next LD.
Congrats anyway, keep it up.

Just for the record; there is a loose condition.

Disagree with spartangeek, you can obviously lose if you run out of oxygen - but I did admit found it easy to find the chest. In future versions there should definitely be obstacles in the way! Great first attempt!

If I had had more time I would have built a large level since that was the plan. I just tried to create more of a concept scene for the LD.

Really liked passing through the skeleton. It is a shame that you basically win by just holding the right direction.

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.
