the Red String of Love

by CommanderJ - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In a lot of Japanese anime, a red string connects lovers. This string will guide the two back together, even across worlds, after a parallel warlord kidnaps the one.

Dodge the obstacles between you.

After a long time of trying to find out, how to dodge the obstacles between ;) I discovered the way to play this game. i used the arrows left and right to activate the controlls? Then you can increase the speeed by pushing right arrow kay and degreasing spped with left key... with up and down I was able to altitude to avoid the obstacles... i passed level three through a mirror. I like the Story and the idea of having a band between to human love each other. Nice idea... controlls need to be polished in some way. Thanks for your entry.

very cute game! I was able to go off of the bottom of the screen and then pull my way across without running into any obstacles, and I was reunited with my lover!

The concept is great, and I love the shaky effect. Would have loved some sound.

It would be nice if the shaky effect when touching a top/bottom border is removed

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.


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 ( 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.
