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

Screen Limiter

by The Pelranthean - Compo Entry

A platformer that zooms out keeping the entire game on screen as new levels are added.

Made with Unity.

Current high score: 60 levels.

I fixed a few of the errors in the current version (after the time limit, but within 48 hours of starting). The original submission is here. (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67604231/LD31/ScreenLimiter.html).

I like the idea!
Obviously, there's some stuff to work on, graphics, sound, but you managed to make a (procedural?) game that perfectly explains your idea.

As for the gameplay, I reached level 23, and died mostly because I had a hard time seeing my movement, because it had zoomed out so much.

Thanks!

I think I stumbled on a difficulty mechanic with the zooming outward. The only problem is that the character becomes only a pixel or less on-screen...

It is procedural, except I'm not really taking advantage of that since only the middle piece is generated.

Thanks for the comments!

Level 35, dont think I could've gotten further. I could barely see the character :P its a neat idea but lacking content.

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.
