by raddevon - Jam Entry

This was originally going to be an iOS game that played out over simulated text messages. Since none of the team knew iOS development, that turned out to be unrealistic. Then, we were hoping to make a "graphical" text adventure, but we're still getting the graphics together. We may make a more fleshed-out version in Twine after the jam. For now, the text-only version will have to suffice, but the screenshot shows a tease of the style of the graphical version.

The UI is very clean and it helped with getting into the story.

Interesting story. It becomes clear that it's strongly on-theme but I like that you never quite spell it out.

The structure seems really well-planned--sticking with a manageable number of options.

Really short (did I play it wrong).
Maybe I missed something.
What I got to see was good though...

Hi there. Fun interactive story. Nice presentation and use of the text message conceit was clever way to draw us in. Good job!

Interesting idea, and well written. I played through it a few times, not sure if there was a "winning" ending but there seemed like there were a few "wrong" ones!

That was certainly interesting. Works well on ipad.

Nice story, liked the "trick" of using text-messages as a way of communicating inside the story

An enjoyable, well-written story. Good work!

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.
