Screen Moverby Sh1rogane - Compo Entry
Screen Mover is a very simple platform game with a difference screen mechanic. You move the screen by dragging the window to reveal more of the level but only the objects that are inside the view (inside the window) are alive (or updates). The goal is to navigate your way to the goal (the blue block with the text "Goal" over it) and avoid being killed.
It is recommended to play this game on a screen with at least 1366x768 (or often the standard laptop resolution) absolute minimum size to play this game is 1280x720
I have no idea how this game will play on difference OS other that Window.
Apparently this game does not work on Mac so if anyone with a Mac can run the jar with the terminal with the command java -jar LD31.jar that will print the error or exception in the terminal and then make a comment here with that text. Thanks!
Move right and left - Left and right arrow keys or A and D
Jump - Space or W or Up arrow key
Move the screen - Drag the screen as usual
IN POST COMPO VERSION
ESC - Quit game
You can't move the window and the player at the same time in the compo version (you can now in the post compo version)
Remember that objects only live/updates when inside the view/window.
Or look at this to get a clue http://a.pomf.se/hpgmeu.mp4?_=1
*POST COMPO UPDATE*
Okay I have added a new better version of the game.
With this update I have removed the window around it and made so you can drag the window just by holding down the mouse button anywhere on the window and drag. So now you can both drag the window and move at the same time.
(And I changed how it looks when you win)

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
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.
