Ludum Dare 34 — December 11th-14th, 2015 — Theme Tied: Two Button Controls, Growing

NOTE: Because of the Theme tie, we allowed everyone to pick either Theme. Using both was optional. To keep things simple, there will still only be one Theme category. Every category in Ludum Dare voting is an opinion, so you’re welcome to rate them as you see fit. But we encourage you to be fair in your scores to people that chose only one Theme, and not both.

ALSO: Itch.io has an experimental game downloader over here. You may find it useful.

Super Seed Reborn

by tpoveda - Jam Entry

- Description -
You are a young farmer, you live taking care of your seeds, some badass devil enemis, want to stole your seeds. Protect them!!!!! Water them and they will help you defeat your enemies!!!!

- Objective of the game -
Have fun :-P. Achieve the maximum score killing your enemies.

-Game Mechanics-
- You have unlimited water shoots. You use them to kill your enemies (You shoot water using left click)

- You have dfferent kind of seeds that you can select and shoot to the ground of your game (if you shoot seeds you can't shoot water). Also, seeds does not affect enemies.

- When seeds are on the ground you can water them using Right mouse button.
You have a limited amount of this water (in the HUD there is a bar that indicates your water level). You have to go to the pool to recharge your water.

- When one enemy is killed, after X seconds (random number) they disappear and drop a seed

- When you water your seeds they gain experience and they level up. When they are in their maximum level they do some action.

- At this moment we have green seeds (when they are at level 3 they give you a flower, the money of your game) and red seeds (when they are at level 3 they explode and kill near enemies).

- In the future, before starting a level, you will have an inventory where you will be able to select the kind of seeds that you want to use in your game (depending of the level you will have to use one types or seeds to achieve the maximum score).

- The idea of the game is that using flowers you can buy in the shop and improve your seeds and your weapon. And the final objective is to achieve the maximum points as possible in each level. Also, you will be able to make combos if you kill a enemies in an small amount of time (you win points when you kill enemies).


-Controls-
Left Mouse Button: Shoot water
1, 2, 3 keys: Change Seed Types ( 1 = Water Shoot, 2 = Green Seed, 3 = Red Seed)
Right Mouse Button: Use water
Escape: Pause Game

- Unimplemented stuff that affects jugability (all this will be fixed in future versions) -
Enemies appear in a same rate no matter how much time you play
- No combos
- No shop
- Only two kind of seeds
- Much more things

Well done, beautiful art, music, which is always a plus, and decent sound too. Gameplay was a bit funky though.

Nice looking game, with good game feel, although it doesn't have any real challenge, but it's normal in a jam game. It seems you had a lot of stuff that didn't make it through. Keep working on it!

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.
