Wrecked Submarine.

by robert_steiner - Jam Entry

This is not a game, unfortunately. I failed to provide any of the gameplay I wanted, but I got distracted and added some nice cockpit to my sub.

Fiddle with all THREE clickable cockpit elements!
TAB to go out of periscope view, P for chase cam.

Nice cockpit simulator. :) I liked the rightmost switch the most. And the periscope view.
A pity that there is not more gameplay. Would have liked a submarine simulation.

I really enjoyed this. It was quite immersive, and i had the impression that I was under the water in the sub. It was almost meditative with the humming engine and the slow movement.

I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. Really felt like the submarine was moving. you should make a game out of it in the future!

Some nice potential, but unfortunately that's all this has. I would love to see this become a game!

For a cockpit... it's ok.
Maybe some colored buttons...

It was really cool once I clicking on the periscope and saw outside. Wasn't expecting that! Too bad you didn't have time to finish more.

How do I exit the periscope view?
It's sorta more of a game then some wanderers on unity that people put on ld as games. And in a way it's prettier. I'd love to play a minimalistic Das Boot-style experience done in a similar style.

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.
