Underlineby eufrik - Jam Entry
Hulloo. This is our entry for the jam. Basically, it's a hardcore platformer game with a twisted mechanic.
You are trapped and lost in limbo and all that's left to show you the way are some strange, glowing orbs in the darkness, and the beautiful world you once lived in... under your feet. But what is reality? Which way is up? Collect all the orbs to unlock the exit and finish the game!
Controls are arrow keys/WASD and spacebar.
Simply jump at the orb to start the game.
This is our first time joining Ludum Dare. First game ever, too. We had a lotta fun making this and learned a freaking lot. This basically is just one level with many challenges packed in it. We really hope you play, enjoy, and comment on this. We are seriously considering to push on with this and turn it into an indie game. Your thoughts would be reaaally appreciated.
If you do finish this game, please leave a comment :> We'd love to know your accomplishment in finishing this game. (It was even a feat for us just to finish it once).
Edit: We added a post-jam version. Just fixed a few bugs and added checkpoints. The original submission is still up for judging. (Quite frankly, we're not sure if adding checkpoints is allowed as a 'fix' as described, can anyone verify this?).
Edit2: We're seeing a lot of control complaints, especially about inconsistent jumping. We'd really love to improve the game and we're grateful for your feedback, but could you guys be a little more specific? Based on some of the comments, it seems like some of you haven't fully understood the concept of the game yet. That's for you to figure out on your own ;)
Edit3: Added a description. Just to give you a tiny hint.

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.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
