The Futurist

by TinyMoonStudios - Jam Entry

The Futurist is a stealth action puzzle game in which you play as Officer Amelia Baker who is a Temporal-Enforcer who is trying to navigate the oppressive cyber-punk world of the future to escape the iron grip of the government. Baker has to go back to a simpler time to avoid objects but she cannot be seen in the past else she would be stripped of her time traveling privileges and exiled to the past for revealing the existence of time travel.

Gameplay need refine. Didn't have any chance with the first enemy. Cool idea though.

Really like the concept and implementation of time travel, that's really interesting idea! The artwork is really clear and the environments evocative. Sounds would have been great. Darn hard though ;)

Level design is more confusing then fun. And not in a good way.

Maybe it was my browser, but I was not able to see any of the controls.

The graphics are cool, the title screen looks professional, and I do love a good side scrolling shooter game like Megaman.

This game has a lot of potential with some polish. Keep it up, there is something here.

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.
