Escape

by geekygenius - Compo Entry

It all began behind during a cocktail party at a well-known secret lab. The zombie invasion. Play as the zombies and escape into the world to invade all those know-it-all humans. Be careful though, the brains you collect on your way out go rotten after a while.

Controls are standard for RTS Games.

To buy a tombstone, click on the button, then click where you would like it to go.


This was my first attempt at 3D, and I think it turned out a little buggy :)

How do I buy the tombstone? Maybe some text instructions on the ludumdare page just for us non RTS players?

seemed like the doctors were slightly over powered and I died after a few minutes. restarted & decided to sit & wait for a bunch of zombies to spawn. when 8+ zombies spawn the game become unplayable. moving the world with WASD & arrow keys lags. for example, I hit D or right arrow, it does nothing for a couple seconds, then scrolls all the way across uncontrollably

I'm not sure if buying a tombstone works, but it could just be a bug?

Good effort

Same suggestion as retro; add instructions.

Well, you know, there's Ludum Dare participants, as I, that don't know the RTS control standard...

I'm simply unable to move!

Great game, nice gameplay, It makes you want to kill everyone and start the zombie. Maybe a little to easy because it doesn't really involved that much strategy.... just make sure you attack with more than the AI :D.

Please give us some kind of guide. It wasn't clear what I had to have in order to buy a tombstone, it wasn't clear what I had to do really. A guide would have been very handy. Also, I found that if I scrolled, the screen would become invisible?

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.
