by dopoko - Jam Entry

A game made in a weekend by me, Mila P (@darwinscoat) and Zenas B (@zenasprime).

You play as a cool dude with a pompadour in a submersible hunting treasure while avoiding sharks, whales, evil crabs, the Russians, and horrible sea monsters.

I created all the art and sound effects.
Zenas was the amazing programmer who put it all together in unity. Music by Edward Shallow, "Orka."

We sadly couldn't finish in time for the end of the jam, but we will be fixing and updating the web version.

Nice concept and visuals! Some more polish in the controls could make it feel better, though.

Fun graphics. Could be fun game, but the controls do not work very smoothly.

The game looks nice but it doesn't seem to work right. First of all your title screen says there is music, but when I play there is no audio, secondly as soon as I kill my first shark it says "level 2" and then no button I press can do anything. 3rdly if I kill whales level 1 just seems to go on forever.

I'm not sure exactly what happened, it seems like you were well on your way to a completed game, but as it is, it feels broken. (And I tried several times to make it work).

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.
