Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

Time for an upgrade!

by BunkeyInteractive - Compo Entry

Time for an upgrade is a really short game about a guy who tries to upgrade his computer screen. I only had 10 hours total to work on this, so it's a tad shorter. I hope you'll enjoy it anyway.

The theme was "Entire Game on one screen." So I made the entire game be about. or focused on, one computer screen.

Controls: A or Left Arrow: Move Left. D or Right Arrow: Move Right.

P.S. I had a VERY busy weekend, so I didn't get to do a lot. Sadly, this wasn't a great weekend schedule wise for me. I worked as much as I could in the 10ish hours I had the weekend. Thanks for understanding.

Nooo! I got stuck at the end (I think it was), I think the dialog bugged... I was back in the store with the money and an empty dialog box pooped, I waited but nothing next. It's fun how you managed to intrigued me with simple arts and a few lines of texts. I was really looking forwards to find out what's going on with that screen. Nice literal take of the theme.

Overally very funny and very good take on the theme. Could do with some debugging.

I know nobody will see this, but I'm really sorry for all of the glitches. Basically, it ends when he goes to the store and the monitor is all sold out. I was insanely busy that weekend and honestly forgot all about this after I posted it. I'll back with more coolness and better gameplay next time around. I hope somebody sees this!

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 ( 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.
