Burning Worlds

by TomTheG - Jam Entry

Arcade-style game developed in Unity. My first LD (jam) game.

Mouse over the worlds to cool them from the sun's heat. They also grow when you do that!

If they get too hot, they die! If one dies, the other dies! Save them. Try to beat your best time!

Only tested in Windows/Web. Enjoy and thanks for comments.

Fairly interesting. Is it possible to get passed 18 seconds? Because I didn't seem to be able to.

21 seconds! And that's as far as I'm going to get on this trackpad. That was definitely enjoyable. Good work keeping the scope in check and executing beautifully. Obviously not the deepest game in the world, but I liked it!

That got hard quick. I love how when worlds die they explode like balloons.

20 seconds \o/

The sound helped me alot ;-)

Three beeps for each planet until 10 seconds, then two, then one, then the planets became too fast for me xD

Simple but very challenging! Good job!

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.
