On a Screen Door

by ShawnFeatherly - Compo Entry

This game is about staying on the one screen. The one screen door! Use arrow keys, WASD, or the on screen buttons to stay on the screen door. Otherwise, the entire game is over (until you click retry).

Used:
Unity3D
Blender
Paint.Net (to place the 7 pixels used in the all important screen texture)
A rehash of this guys skybox http://www.farmpeeps.com/fp_skyboxes.html

Did this in maybe 6 hours. Most of the time was learning Blender. Didn't have a lot of time to devote to the jam. :-/

I joked with my team about a screen door game. Hilarious implementation of the theme.

Very fast game development, and I hope you had fun learning Blender. Did you mean to submit as a jam entry? It shows up as a compo entry, which means you have to make everything from scratch, but it sounds like you used some resources like the skybox for the background.

The game itself is simple but oddly stressful.

Hi there. Nice interpretation of theme. Found the balancing act very difficult, couldn't get beyond about 9.5s. Shame no sound. Good job!

Thanks for all the comments :-)

I did mean to submit it as a compo entry. The photos I used for the skybox aren't one's I took myself. I only did the work to create a Unity3D skybox with the images. I thought if we made clear what parts were from other sites we're okay?

You know, I didn't really examine the grass much. I thought it was from some photos. But now that I look at it more, maybe it is ComputerGenerated.

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.
