Tetrabomber

by AndrewFM - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is a 4-player party game, so you'll need at least two game controllers and a few friends to play.

The basic premise is that each player occupies their own "world" (playing grid), and each world is connected to another player's. When you set off an attack in your world, the attack materializes in the connected player's world. Likewise, some player will be connected to you, so their attacks will materialize in your own world.

As you play the game, events happen that change the way the worlds are interconnected, and add new objects that are synced across the worlds. There's a good amount of visual multitasking that needs to go on to be able to survive both on the offensive and the defensive.

Due to some schedule conflicts, I only had one day to work on this, and in that time I didn't get a chance to actually test out the game with anyone. So, I honestly have no idea if this idea works in execution... if anyone plays this with their friends, and can record a video of it, I'd love to see it.

Could you possibly add a standalone .exe of the game that does
not require you to use an installer?

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.
