New Dawnby Penguincat - Jam Entry
'Welcome to New Dawn, humanity's refuge beneath a surface world decimated by nuclear winter. The ruling Party has kept its loyal Citizens alive throughout the centuries, but one morning something is amiss...'
You wake up shivering, as you have every morning since the heating went out in your building. Was it two weeks ago? Three? Seems like longer. Your stomach growls when you get up and stretch. Mark was still out when you went to sleep, but maybe he won the ration card drawing at work...
You turn to ask him how the night went, but your brother's bed is empty. His sheets are in the same crumpled pile as yesterday. The heater sits silently in a corner. Through the walls of your single-room unit, you can hear the neighbors arguing.
Your empty stomach twists. Could he have stayed at work all night? As you pull on your shoes, you try not to think about the fact that the shop hasn't been that busy for months, or about the latest curfew reforms.
He'll be there.
Click to move and interact, double-click to run. Made in Unity by:
Stefan: Coding, Art, Concept/Gameplay Design
Olivia: Writing, World/Level Design, Music
Post-LD Update: If the constant clicking is bugging you, check out the Post-LD update - you can now hold down the mouse button to move, and the player will pathfind around static obstacles. The player also moves a little faster so getting around is more convenient. Some dialogue has been tweaked to give the player a better idea of how to progress. The endgame no longer has randomized elements; it's more of a timing puzzle now. Various bugs with the interface have been fixed as well.

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.
