murder of Zafuby Franklin's Ghost - Compo Entry
Third Ludum Dare attempt and really fell apart at the end. Didn't get as much time as I wanted to work on it this weekend and wasted to much time on animation.
Wanted to interpret the theme a bit differently this time and decided upon the idea of the player observing a room through a peephole. You know a murder is going to occur and all you can do to stop it is turn off the light as the killer attempts to shoot. (Like the old Space Ace games where it was all about timing)
Game doesn't make much sense but you click as the game plays and it goes black as the lights are turned off which you have to time with the killers attempt to throw him off.
Restart button at the top left of screen.
Wanted to have different things occur depending when you pressed the button and more killer attempts but ran out of time.
Happy with the idea and the graphics but that's about it this time, feels really unfinished.
UPDATE: Plan is to keep working on this and posting updates on my Twitter. Have plenty of ideas to work with. Eg one hard level is a scene at a Halloween party where lots of people have fake weapons. Also want to limit light off switch in the expanded game.
UPDATE 12/12/2014: Started working on the Post LD version.
-Have removed annoying clicking. (Don't really know what I was thinking with it but guess that's what lack of sleep does)
-Removed restart button so you just need to click the screen at the end to restart
-Added gun flare

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.
