Jessie and Jackby rnlf - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Update: I added a version of the game packed with 7-zip that does not trigger Chrome's malware warning. It requires 7-zip to unzip though. Stupid browser.
Update 2: I moved the Windows .zip version to another server. Now Chrome only triggers a warning about an uncommon download but it doesn't delete the file right away :-)
This is the story of Jessie and Jack.
Jessie and Jack are siblings and "inventors". They "invented" a teleporter system and wanted to test run it. Too bad, they are just "inventors" and not inventors (without quotation marks). The test run created a rupture in the universe and cast them both into different parallel worlds.
But these worlds seem to be connected by their faulty teleporter, so they can at least transfer inanimate matter through the ruptures created by their "invention".
* Cursor keys for movement.
* Tab to switch between Jessie and Jack.
* Ctrl to use the item in hand (fire weapon or use it with upgrade terminal, use keycard with terminal).
* Enter to pick up or drop an item.
* Drop items into rupture to teleport them to the other sibling.
The game is written in Love2D (0.9.1) and should run on all platforms (love runtime from http://love2d.org/ or your Linux distributor is needed).
An executable for windows is provided for your convenience, no additional software required (but Chrome on Windows seems to think it's malware. Disable the malware filter or use another browser to download). This one also runs nicely in wine.

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.
