Under Sea, See Stars..

by Mlle Eole - Jam Entry

Well, it's only a demo. You can fly, talk to tribes, but I made mistakes so there isn't any story.. A post-LD version will be displayed asap.

Here is the original concept and story ( ). In the saturdays evening the gameplay was already reduced to a simple story-game, but i've lost lot of time, many times, on quite stupid bugs. At least, I have tried... :p

If you speak french, I streamed the whole weekend so i made videos for each stage, particularly the full explanation of the background ( 1h - ). Perhaps that's part of the mistake, but now it's here, and it explains what I intended to do, so... ^^

C'est super beau, et j'aime particulièrement la maniere dont le jeu s'integre dans une page web. Je pense qu'une contrainte et un objectif auraient ete prioritaires sur l'histoire, pour qu'il puisse concourir en tant que jeu (a ce stade du developpement).
Maintenant j'ai hate de tester la version post-LD. Celle du lien "Web v2" ne m'a pas paru differente...

Neat idea! I like the "pings" that pop up, and the plane-design :)

I'm currently a little bit busy so the V2 link don't show anything special now, but as soon as i have something correct i will say it here, in my LD journal, in twitter and facebook, etc. :)

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.
