Quite atmospheric, but i feel some lack of interface (not sure if it is needed :) ).
At all, quite solid game.

Very simple, but fun! Would be easier to control if you did wasd+mouse instead of wasd+arrow keys, but I suppose submarines aren't supposed to be easy to control anyway ;)

I love when people make 3D games for ludum dare as it makes everything so much more harder. Loved the game but I wish that when you got hit it would not be a red blood splatter instead an explosion effect.

Really nice, pretty relaxing for a game about war submarines and explosions. Nice job on the mood and atmosphere!

Love the 3D look! I included your game in part 1 of my Ludum Dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out!

This is like my game only 3D and a lot prettier and way better and with better sound and better controls :p

It seems odd to say that a game about a struggle to the death feels soothing, but this game definitely does.

I like that there's no HUD (it doesn't need one), and I think the bubbles are a nice touch. Controls make it pretty difficult.

Nice graphics, loved the effects (particles and blur). The music is very fitting too.

Love the music! It gives the atmosphere a nice touch. :)

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.
