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

The Final Screen

by uberscientist - Compo Entry

WASD to move, E to use, Space to jump

Runs on Blender, (unzip BOTH the .blend file and hands.mp4 to the same folder) download the latest version of blender from the official site linked above (Windows, Mac and Linux).

The game is more interactive art, however, there is a win condition... almost like an easter egg (hint in the screenshots)

Also, thanks bunches to ramoncb for exporting the game for Windows <3

I'd still download Blender on Linux, the export functionality isn't as efficient and I use Arch (rolling release) so there will probably be shared lib conflicts :(

Loved the low-poly style.

Good job! =D

I think you should make an executable! It's easy:

File > External data > Make all paths relative
File > User preferences > Addons > Game Engine > Save as Game Engine runtime
File > Export > Save as Game Engine runtime

Fantastic art! Really loved how the tablet follows you around too- great touch, it really enhances the surrealism of the scene. As does the snowman, somehow...

Ha I love when games defy expectations like this! Wish it were longer! If you like this one check out another compo entry called DebugIt();

Interesting idea, but you should definitely try to make a version you can download easily without having to jump through hoops. Nice entry :)

For people calling for a standalone windows version I'm willing to host one if you can export it following ramoncb's instructions above... I just don't have a modern copy of windows laying around (I'm not a software pirate anymore either, sorry :( )

Are you serious with the blender stuff? :D :D :D
Never seen any games like this before, however my teammate mentioned it that you can make games in Blender. Nice! :)

I really liked this game! I would call it more of an experience, but I had fun delving into the floating classroom dream of a unicode snowman! :)

Nice job!

Cool concept, I've never seen a game played from blender before, that's really neat. The music and graphics fit the mood well too. I liked it, nicely done :)

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.
