Walled In

by rainybyte - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Walled in by a dumb government, Suzanna must escape to the outside. She must find a way to connect with the world only told of in stories.

Sorry about it being pretty incomplete. My first LD, so I never got to putting in more depth.

I do plan on working on the game afterward, and will have to find some way to post the location of it as I update. The opponent script was being written right at the end, but I had to leave an hour before deadline, so they are useless... you can kill them though.

Given more time, I wanted to flesh out the story in the game, because she has a reason to get to the "other world" across the wall. Inspiration comes from the "Berlin Wall" which separated East and West Germany into two separate "worlds", and getting to the other side was a major feat which often ended in failure.

I loved what you were driving at. This could become a brilliant game with more time put into it. the opponents do nothing but it had a nice feel to it. I liked the music too. I m not sure how this relates to the theme though. Congrats on finishing the game

@kidando: thanks for your comment, I do plan on working on the game afterward, and will have to find some way to post the location of it as I update. The opponent script was being written right at the end, but I had to leave an hour before deadline, so they are useless. :/

Updated description to give more detail for those who want it.

Hi there. Shame you didn't have time for any AI. Loved the retro/pixel look.

Incomplete, so hard to judge. Maybe next time focus on getting the gameplay before the art?

I really liked the historically inspired concept. The graphics were also very fitting.

I loved pulling Matrix maneuvers jumping over enemies and shooting them in the air from behind! How did you make the music?... its awesome and reminds me of some of my favorite games from way back when (1980's/1990's). The music and graphics tie in great with the era of the premise of the story (1980's?). I love that the hair flies around when you are airborne! Keep it up! (Jammin' out to the end-game music as I write this) :)

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.
