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.

Rayban

by eddynardo - Jam Entry

Rayban is the main character, he is inspired from Rayman and Crash Bandicoot.
This game was created in 48 hours from scratch by two people.

Story:
Rayban was kidnapped by a giant hornet and he is now trapped in a forest.His only way out is to solve some weird riddles that the hornet sends via text messages.

Controlls
arrow keys: move and jump

Space (first time):pick the point where you want to go back in time

Space (second time): create an instance of your self in the point where you pressed space the first time, this instance will recreate every move you did
but you cant touch or go near it since that would create a paradox (you can use this power only once in every level)

Q : restart level


Importand: the game ends when you find the hornet (so press Alt+F4, nothing is going to happen after that)

Awesome puzzle concept. Very impressive rewind mechanic! Got stuck on some colliders, but I'll chalk that up to a jam version of your game. Art was also quite impressive

Very confusing. It could benefit from some more explanations and feedback to the player. I do like the mechanics and the ideas though, there were some good ideas in there. I just wish they were a bit more clear.

Good Braid-esque idea! Could definitely use some better in game explanation since it was hard to figure out, but once understood it was good.

Really cool idea and ambitious to try and pull off for a Ludum. I really would have liked some camera snap type of effect for when storing a space-time position and some indicator showing that the next action would be a rewind. An easy level reset button would have been nice since there where ways to get quite stuck and the space action failing to do anything (pressed like 5-6 times without anything happening). Finally the controls were hard to deal with. Maybe the colliders should be extended a little for all platforms, maybe lack of grace-period allowing jump shortly after left platfrom, maybe there was some momentum in the character or a lack of gravity. I couldn't put my finger on it, but something was slightly off. So if these things were attended to, I'd say you have a winner concept for a puzzle platformer!

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.
