Fox

by Metal Axe - Jam Entry

UPDATE: Everything should hopefully be accessible now. Let me know if that's not the case.

You are a fox who must return the forest spirits to their own worlds.

Controls:
WASD or ARROW Keys to move
Space to jump
ESC to quit

I only had one day to work on this game, so it's far from finished. The original idea was to have the proportion of collected spirits to effect the game (spawning enemies or projectiles to dodge) but I ran out of time, so it just became a simple collect and deposit game. I'll hopefully finish this game over the rest of the day and will post alternative links in the description (the official links will remain the same as when uploaded).

I liked the original concept and I'm sad you didn't get the time to make it like you wanted. As it is the game requires a bit of thought (where to go depending on jump height) and the controls feel a bit floaty. Good work for 1 day overall, and good luck!

Controls felt a little off and the bumps between platforms kind of messed up the physics. I was also unsure about how to actually "save" the spirits.

Great level design. More time for more graphics! But really good job! ;)

I like the idea of the fox & spirits. Quite good for only 1 day of work. Hope you got more time next time :)

Simple, but cute. The controls felt a little slippery at times, resulting in harder jumps.

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
