Connection of the Damned

by modwizcode - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my very first game made independently as part of a game jam/competition. I set out to make a very different game but I just don't know the programming to do that in 48 hours.

So here you go, find the glitch, hint going up into the stars is important. Controls are W,S,A,D (WSAD) and Space bar to walk and jump respectively.

I won! I have no idea why :) A first solo game with controls and graphics and animations and a win state is not bad at all and builds confidence!

It's pretty standard in Ludum Dare to overdesign your game and have to cut it down at the last minute, often into a completely different game.

OK, you definitely deserve some points in humor! I know how it is to run out of time while fighting with code issues and making things work. Good job on your first entry!

Very weird experience :O But by glancing at your code base, I guess you actually planned for something more than this. But at least it's something playable ;)

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.
