Scrunch

by mcc - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This may *appear* to be an art program. However, in fact, it is a video game.

The goal is:
Make the best piece of art

The lose condition is:
Make the worst piece of art

Use of an xinput-compatible gamepad (such as the 360 pad) is highly recommended.
Suggested hashtag is #scrunch

I did not make any effort to follow the theme.

Rad as fuck and she knows that I feel that way. Love this so much OMG. Doesn't have too much to do with the theme other then it connecting MY world to a world of RAINBOWS AND EXCITEMENT

secretly, there is no lose condition, as making a bad art with the rainbow sand bottle game is not possible, there is nothing but PRETTY colors

I don't know what I am doing, but it's the most beautiful thing I have ever done.

Confusing yet compelling. I dug out a gamepad specifically to try this out and I'm glad I did.

I still have no idea what's happening but the music component makes my bad visual art entertaining to make.

Love how difficult it is to get something to look like something you were trying to get it to look like, because then you get things you didn't even know you were trying to get.

Very awesome! I love this and Organ Solo and Great Artist. It's pretty cool that you implemented a screenshot feature.

Haha, I had to go for Death Metal! Very cool, especially since I didn't have headphones on. Very rad!

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.
