Gordon's Robot

by Hairein - Jam Entry

There is 1 artifact per world outside of the main world. The worlds can be reached by entering the 4 portals and each retrieved artifact must be deposited at the main teleport.
Sadly, we didn't manage to finish all we wanted to, mainly the missing sound effects and music as well as other content such as enemies. What remains is an exploration game.
This was the first time our family member team (Chris, Myles and me, Micah) did a game together and the 72 hours were quite fun for us! We decided that next time it should be a 2D game to try that too.

I really enjoyed it :) I liked the look of the 4th world will all that black ground and red stones.

Hiya,

I felt the movement to be a bit clunky, but otherwise the idea is pretty solid and I liked the graphics for something that was made in three days :)

It's a shame you didn't get enough time to add music, I think it might have added a lot to it. But no matter what way I look at it, an FPS (sans the S) in 3 days is impressive indeed. Good luck, on this and on your next 2D game :)

Nice graphics. With a bit more time invested could be a good game.

Liked the fact that I could actually see my body in first person! One little issue is that the mouse cursor did not seem to stay locked in the web player.

FPS is a genre what needs more time than 72 hours of development. I liked the alien worlds, they are realy creepy and... alien :D. However the whatabout and whereabout of the artifacts is not clear. Maybe some story would help, at least in written form. Also a robotic movement would be more authentic (a delay in the rotation with limited rotation speed).

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.
