Wormhole Escape

by Orz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I based my entry on the common scene from Stargate where a bunch of unwashed rabble are being evacuated through the gate under fire. It's short, but to the point.

The whole thing is written in C#/Mono and uses System.Drawing for graphics. You can run the game on Linux with "mono connectedworlds.exe" or on Windows with a double-click.

Really original take of the theme! :) Sadly there was no audio.

Neat idea. Those nasty slow villagers deserved to die anyway :)

Heh, nice idea. The varying speed of the villagers makes it really challenging to keep them all alive :D
I got to level 14 or so before my last guy croaked :(

It didn't feel like I had a great deal of control over the villagers' survival. Even if there was a shot about to hit one, it wasn't often that it seemed like I could save him. I ended up with 2 villagers about 6 or 7 levels in, and managed to keep the pair of them alive until that game crashed at level... 15, I think?

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.
