Please read this before playing:

The idea for this game was to be "beneath the surface of the game." In the end, it shows some game code, which was my original plan. I didn't get to really work on it much past the basics of the game, so I just threw in the ending really soon so I could submit on time. So yeah, the game is very incomplete. WASD to move around.

This game uses HTML5 Canvas and Salmon.JS (My own incomplete game engine). The game uses these two fonts:

The engine can be found here: (WIP)

Great idea!

I wasn't sure if things were over when the code appeared. I tried to affect it by mashing some keys for a while, and was a bit disappointed that nothing happened...

Finish this!
It can be brilliant.

"I wish I had someone to consult" <--best line ever!

The style is real good and I got sucked into it straight away.

BEST MOOD EVER, jk :3, but great one though, I really liked it, too bad it's so short, please finish it, add one or two gameplay elements max, better textures (for the ground mainly, but others too), a simple but somewhat more complex story line and it can be a great game

Nice and moody, I guess I wish there had been some more of a game. From a technical point of view, the walking animation was pretty slick (hard to do that many frames in my experience) and the rain particle system was cool.

Not much right now, but it did manage to convey an interesting atmosphere.

I love the atmosphere in this, and also the humor. I want to see where this was heading.

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.
