...On the positive side, it's still a better gaming experience than Duke Nukem: Forever!

I don't really like. Not original (do you know how many games talking about fishes were entered in there?). Still well made. Good luck next time :D

Seriously... did you tested your game without having Python installed? It simply doesn't work.

i managed to fly out of the water and walk of the screen. I tried to hit fishes but nothing ever happend.

Still i know how even this "kind" of game is hard work and so i am happy you did it (- : looking forward to your next one and the progress you will have made by then.

ive played it again. it worked this time.. pretty good for a 1st game .. well done man :)

May 4, 2014 @ 10:27pm

For a first game it's a nice effort. You should rethink the controls to be a little more friendly though.

May 11, 2014 @ 5:35pm

Kind of an incomplete game, but great job for your first one. Keep creating!! I included it in part 23 of my Ludum Dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

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.
