The Spectacular Adventures of Billy

by InquisitiveGeek - Jam Entry

Needs wired xbox 360 controller to play. Extract the folder and run the ld48 application. Move with left analogue stick, press A to jump, start to pause the game and X to close messages. Gather sticks (white rectangles), collect keys (yellow rectangles) to open doors (pink rectangles and find the objective (cyan rectangle) to complete the game. The game connects the game world with the real world through Billy; our 4th wall breaking protagonist.

Mood was great.
NAWT.
Better coding than mine, I guess, however still needs a lot more features before it could really be worth playing.

I don't own a wired 360 controller :/ Maybe consider putting in backup inputs next time?

Just looking at the screenshot made my eyes hurt. No controller handy - so won't rate...

Great humor, if nothing else! lol

By the way, it worked (even with vibration) with my PS3 controller (through MotionInJoy)

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.
