Piopio LD29

by piopio - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Binary compiled and tested on Windows XP 32bit.

[edit] I Windows binary on Linux+Wine and it works too, so you don't need to compile it. Anyway, you can compile it for Linux installin Allegro.pas and Free Pascal. There's a script to make it.

Didn't really understand what the goal was. I see that there is a slot for an item, but I was never able to interact with anything other than squids. Tried pressing 'x' like the UI suggests on items and whatnot. Interesting little maze game otherwise.

trueyomic: The "Z" key is only to refill the oxygen tanks. To pick items press the space bar.

I like the graphics and procedurally generated screens, which produce an environment that is interesting to explore. It's nice to find out what items do and how to use them. I got hold of the chest but then got stuck in dark rooms.

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.
