Event Horizon

by ThatNaughtyPanda - Compo Entry

You are a particle created by the Big Bang. You and all your friends have the same goal in mind, "Get bigger!"

Click and collide with particles and accrue mass.

Edit: The idea is to click on particles and "accrue," which causes them to move towards each other. Game's pretty broken on the web version, apparently. Unsure how to fix that at the moment. Ran out of time before I could do all of what I wanted to do. Sooo have fun, lol.

Edit Edit: It looks like it works if you reload the page once after starting on the web version. May be just me, but you may want to try it.

How do the controls work? I didn't figure out how to get my particle to do anything.

Unity crashed as soon as "BIG BANG IN " appeared :(

I really like the concept; hopefully the game can be played later :)

Almost more of a simulation than a game. I can't tell if I am having any effect on the fate of my particle.

Crashes at the Big bang screen in firefox for me, and doesn't load at all in Chrome. :(

I'm seriously confused about how this game works. A tutorial would be great. Also, dragging the particle count all the way down causes the game to drop to freeze.

I think perhaps some more explanation as to how this game works is necessary. My attempts to accrue have only been met with defeat. D:

Unity Crashed when the words "Big Bang In" appeared. Did this in Chrome on Windows 7.

Crashes on web version makes me sad. Starting by small particle often impossible to win. On big count of particles game overs on big bang.

Wooo This Simulator is really interesting!
Nice work, I like it!
But pay attention, the game crashed 3 times before working!
Maybe it's my pc fault, but i read in the comments that it's not only a problem of mine!

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.
