Transmission : Connected Worlds

by archieandrews@live.co.uk - Jam Entry

HOW TO PLAY :
I didn't have time to add in a how to play section in game so I had to put it here.

When you open the game there will be a white board. On the board will be a Morse code. Use the left and right arrow key on your keyboard to change the channel on the big dish like thing out the window (comment if you know what it is called) each channel will play a different Morse code. When you have found the Morse code that matches the board press the SPACE key to confirm it. For each correct answer you get you will earn a point, for each wrong answer you will lose a point.

Thank you for playing the game please let me know how I can improve for the next LD and let me know what you liked. Also post your score in the comments bellow.

pretty unique game. only wound up getting 5 points after dipping into the negative. XD Would be nice to have a little bit of a delay, or a 'radio static' sfx when switching channels to help separate the morris code bits. Also would like to have the same morris code chunk not show up twice in a row, was a bit confusing. nice job :D

Even though I was terrible at it, it was a quite fun experience. Well done!

Nice job! That's a pretty cool concept and you executed it well. The dish thing I think should be called an antenna. It might be helpful to have a play button, so when you turn to a channel it wouldn't immediately play, might make it easier for the player to separate the sound from one channel to another.

Again, nice job! I'd like to see a endgame for this... maybe if you get a bad enough score aliens show up to destroy the observatory?

Very complicated at first, but after 10 tries I got it somehow. Nice Concept.

Nice relaxing game, really like the fact that it's all about the audio which makes a change from a lot of the other games. The models are great too!

More difficult than it looks! Gave me head ache after a while, but it was fun. Is 15 a good score ? :)

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.
