Ocean Explorerby MintArcade - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Very simple game where you exploring ocean floor, fighting pollution and researching a strange swimming objects. Game have autosave feature, so you can continue any time. Many other not finished things like missing (or not at all) textures and UV mapping, sounds and key rebinding are here due time limit, so please be patient.
System requirements - if you can play Skyrim/GTA-5, you are OK (probably).
Web version (slow download) is provided with official ShiVa3D web player
Movement - WASD/Arrow keys
Q/Insert - Up
Z/Delete - Down
Space - Beam
If gameplay is SLOW and waves appears to be WHITE - unfortunately your PC or graphic card is not powerful enough. Try to tweak RenderLevel, AALevel, PostRELevel and ShadowLevel in S3DClient.cfg config file.
- Outside Camera mode only when your vessel above surface
- Particles clipping through vessel body
- Lightning issues on slower GPU (Setup file included).

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.
