We didn't use our time correctly. Since its our fist Ludum Dare, I hope next time we'll do it better.

I think the "web" link is supossed to lead to a page where you play the game online, not a page to download the game (in this case it would be a PC version or something like that).

The game's ok for a first ludum dare. Congratulations!
Here's a tip:
As you're working with unity, next time, if you want to make a REAL web version, do the following:
-Go to file > Build Settings
-Choose "web player".
-Choose a location to make a folder for your web game.
-When unity's done, copy the folder to a public folder in your dropbox, google drive or something like that.
-When dbox or gdrive finishes uploading, right click the .html file inside the folder and copy its public link. Now just paste it on your browser to play the game via web!

Welcome to LD! Don't worry too much about the time management thing, it's a wall nearly everyone slams into on their first time. But in the end, this event is all about learning and having fun!

About the game. Well, there are some glaring mechanics issues (I could list what I noticed if you want, but you probably have a pretty good idea already), but it's functional, and what assets are there hint at an interesting style.

It's a decent first try.

The web link leads to a download.

Please change the web label, it's misleading. Congrats on your first LD!

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.
