A Tale Of Wordsby Njord - 48 Hour Compo Entry
(Troubleshooting : for Web version, it seems going to another browser tab while loading the game makes the Unity player lose focus and not take clicks anymore. Just wait for the game to load ! Same thing with all Unity-web games apparently.)
I am inviting you to embark on an epic journey in the fantastic world of the Kindgom of Word. You will meet Kings and Queens, Knights and Assassins, and even mighty Dragons or scary Witches ...
A Tale Of Words is a game where you connect words (yes, I took that "L" off the LD30 theme ! I didn't like him very much).
The goal of the game is to reveal and combine tiles on a randomly generated Memory-like board. You must claim all tiles in a finite number of actions in order to win. On each tile is a specific Word, and each pair of Words yields a unique and exciting combinaison with its own little story and its awesome (or devastating effects). Learn all the combinaisons and master the destiny of the Kingdom of Word !
This is my very first Ludum Dare, and I'm rather happy with the result, given the goals I had set for myself. I hope A Tale Of Words will provide you with a good challenge and some laughs (you'll understand).
Thank you for playing !
Note : this was developped using Unity, so you will require the web Unity-plugin for the web version. It should install automatically though. Standalone version requires no install.

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.
