I.C.E.: Beneath the Cloud

by Charlaxy - Jam Entry

Incognito Corporate Espionage:

We got together at the local hackerspace to make a game together, and started out with an idea about being a spy that disguises itself as guards to avoid being found out as it infiltrates underground bases. In the story (which isn't reflected in this build of the game but at our GitHub, http://github.com/brodavi/ld29) we use the theme of "Beneath the Surface" in multiple ways: spies, disguises, characters who aren't who they seem, subterranean bases, underground activists and conspiracies, and subversion.

We had issues with Unity and Git Hub that caused numerous delays, but we were still able to release something in the 72 hours.

Our project was ambitious considering that none of us had made anything with the Unity engine before. We had people pitch in to make an extensive story, mechanics, and assets, and we intend to go on to make a complete game based on our ideas.

Would have liked to have played, wish the web link was a working copy of the game.

Wow, sounds like you had planned a cool and ambitious project. Would be great to see it come to life in a post jam version.

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.
