Grid Carsby Germanunkol - Jam Entry
Many people complained they could not play the game because it's multiplayer only.
So we have put up a dedicated server!
To join the server: Click the "Updated Version" below - there are Linux, Windows and Mac versions there. (Linux users, install the awesome Löve framework: "sudo apt-get install love" or similar)
Start the game, press "p" to enter your username.
! Address of the dedicated server: germanunkol.de (enter this in the IP field by pressing 'i', then connect using 'c'.)
We have not really added any other features. Still, if you feel that's cheating, the old links can still be found below - they work fine. In this case, please rate using those.
Grid Cars - a competitive racing game
Ludum Dare 31 entry. Made in one weekend.
Multiplayer only! This game is intended as an "in-betweener" at LAN Parties.
All cars are grid based. You have 10 seconds to make your move. Your velocity is "saved" between moves -
so the faster you went last round, the further you can go this round!
Once the round has started, use WASD to look ahead and the mouse wheel to zoom out.
Make sure to send us your custom maps if you make them!
- Custom maps!
- Absolutely no sounds.
- Full map really DOES fit onto one screen (zoom out to see) :P
- Configurable. Edit the config.txt in:
~/.local/share/love/GridWars (Linux + Max)

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.
