Aliens and Pigs: Why Not?

by lytedev - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Woot! Finished! Started out as a much grander idea and became infinitely simplified (as usual). Again, glad to just finish something, even if it's incredibly simplistic.

Also have to be careful about doing this in a house where Super Smash Bros. is played consistently. Didn't have the willpower to resist and poured a lot of my time into Smash. Ah well!

To run on Linux/Mac, you will need LOVE (

Suey! Aliens must really love bacon, but they sure can round up a few pigs. I got a score of 3800, how about you? Okay, its simple, but sometimes simple are the best. It made me smile. Good job!

5700 points! The pixel pigs were very cute. Enjoyed the fleeing/flocking behavior of the critters. Great work!

Fun to beam those piggies up! Scored 5400, got lucky several times with groups huddled together on the edges of the map :)

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.
