Arches F-9

by Cyanblue - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game that tries way too hard to seem deep!

Float around and look beneath the surface for a way to get to Arches F-9.

Nice job, my friend! Pretty deep. :P The swapping surfaces thing is a very need idea.

I was kind of hoping for a way to make the text go faster, and it was kind of unclear what the goal was, but the mood was interesting, and it's a nice take on the theme.

Nice job. It need a way to have the text be printed faster thoughm and I got disapointed by the end. A sequel planned ?

Nice player movement and great story, I like the idea. The text was a bit too slow, but anyway, good job! :)

Neat. text = slow. forever. xD um. I liked the spacey feel and the planets surface and going inside them. other than that, there wasn't much else to do.

Good job, I like the different conversation tones you find. I agree that the text was a bit slow, but I stuck around to see it all, and something about the "printing" sound effect was very satisfying. Also, yay HaxeFlixel!

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.
