I unfortunatly did not get a chance to finish this, but its a working prototype. The app will load a text file and will load it into the game. Thats about as cool as it gets.

Controls:

to make your own map
0 are roads (plain tile)
1 are bricks (impassable terrain)
2 are dark grass (plain tile)
3 are light grass (plain tile)

I don't get how to play. It's just me and other guy walking around the map. I press Space and something white appear for a moment.

At least you tried :) This could've been a cool game if it had some action. I like games in which you can make your own levels. I made a level with a wall checkerboard. ;)

When I try to run the .jar, I just get a window that immediately closes itself. Not sure what to do!

@Jelinib: Download the example map file. That worked for me.

I wasn't sure what I was doing, but don't let that put you off! You made something and got it out there, that's more than so many people. Keep at it, maybe get people play testing if you can!

I couldn't figure out what to do, but it seems like a good start. Keep working and come back with awesome games :-)

@Slashee the Cow: Oh gee, I am a total dumb. Thanks!

I discovered that I cannot fit in 1-wide spaces, so I made a 2-wide spiral! WOO

This game looks like it has potential for with the custom maps! Need more mechanics to play with, but it's a great start!

If you're still working on this project, I look forward to seeing what it's going to be like in the future! As it stands, it's pretty barebones right now (but you already knew that).

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
