RUNS UNDER WINE!
Survive against the onslaught of enemies for as long as possible by diving beneath the surface and using the two layers to your advantage.
Post what time (and ranking) you got in the comments! All you have to do to reach "proficient" is read the tips in the instructions and in a few times you'll get it!
Read instructions carefully (including the 'tips') - some mechanics may be confusing, and all of them are necessary to survive for a long time!
NOTE: Error when starting has now been fixed. Was down to having 64 bit dll files included when the game is 32 bit.
NOTE: Linux port coming soon!
RANKINGS (Time: Ranking - Description):
<50k: ??? - btw, WASD to move.
<150k: Beginner - Nearly as good as a CoD player.
<300k: Proficient - Bothered to read the 'tips'.
>550k: Master - Osu player?!
PERSONAL NOTES: My least finished of my recent LD games due to missing most of day 1, so it's not as fleshed out as I would have liked it to be. I had planned for a more strategical generation of enemies which increases over time in different wave sequences (rather than the current linear increase in random spawning) with a wider variety of weapons and enemies.

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 (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.
