Project Candyflossby sausagroll - Jam Entry
This is my first ever game jam and one of my first ever games. It's written in python using the pygame engine.
The object of the game is to stop the purple creatures from reaching the castle. You do this by placing towers. It's just a really simple tower defense game, I didn't want to go for anything more ambitious because my lack of experience and lack of time would have probably made it fail.
Programming was done by me, a 14 year old.
All graphics apart from the background and all sound effects were done by my friend, spyisassasin.
The map was drawn by another friend, the lapis king.
Text editor: Notepad++
Graphics editors: GIMP 2 and MS Paint
Sound effect generator: Sfxr
I'm proud of the way this game turned out but I know there's a lot to be done to improve it and make it more fun. I really enjoyed LD 31 and I'll be participating in the next one.
Also, the name is really stupid and doesn't relate to the game in any way.

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.
