What lies beneath the Temple

by oobie - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I'm done! Yes the graphics and animation is bad and the game is short.
But you will understand it if you play until the very end.

The game didn't have any conflict! I see potential for the game, just looks like you ran out of time. Nice work!

Ha, I like the way you took the game. I played it twice because I thought I had missed something, and the second time around I understood the script a bit better :b

I think some of the writing could have used a bit of cleaning up. Even after playing it twice, a few lines are still confusing towards the end.
Also, I have to say that the black text on gray background once you fall into the 30 seconds part is kind of hard to read. I actually didn't see anything at all until I saw a bit of a smudge on my screen and turned my brightness up.

One thing I REALLY REALLY liked about the game, though, is the very first line. I absolutely loved that you used "...right?", implying that you press the right arrow key to move. I would have liked to see you pull that off with the other buttons too, but I guess it's hard to easily write "R" and "ESC" into lines smoothly. Still, it's a very interesting game, and a humorous take on the theme :]!

This was.. different.. and short :P - I think I see what you tried to do here. with some more work (time) this could turn into an interesting game.

This game is really funny. I like how you build up my hopes with "is this gras?" and then smash them with an empty room. ;)

Good job!

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.
