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

If you have used Unity, please consider uploading a WebGL (or at least web player if webgl has some issues) build somewhere. is an option.

PS: the Paint.NET link got converted to (wrong) url, happened the same to me :)

What a crazy weird game! The graphics weren't the best but at least it was funny. I also liked the different music for the different levels. Great job on submitting a game!

definitely fits the theme. I actually liked the visuals, even though they were pretty amateurish, but it was a coherent style and it changed every level, which was nice. Gameplay-wise it was pretty weak, you could have added progressing difficulty, also sometimes you could not dodge when there were two things coming at you the same time.

Thank you all for your comments, we are pleased to enjoy the game even though he lacked optimization and more polishing. It's our first game but we will continue practicing for next LD. Thanks again for your comments.

I will take into consideration all comments.

PS: Excuse my bad English is not my native language but I try.

Nice job! There were some bugs here and there and it was a tad difficult to dodge the items. Good work nevertheless. :)

It was fun ! :)
A bit unfair sometimes (both up and down were filled with obstacles x) )

My enlgish is bad to haha, we know the bug to crouch and jump, but we can fix it when it has not finished the LD?
we want to fix the bug of the two projectiles simultaneously to.

Thank for feedback.
If anyone can answer, I would appreciate.

Funny! I could only make it to the 2nd level though. The hit box for the object throw were very big, so it was hard to avoid, even if I had to jump over it. The crouching then jumping combos were really hard to pull off too. I liked what you had going here though!

Dec 18, 2015 @ 5:50am

I learned I am awful at timing. Funny theme.

We may have found a bug. If you crouch, you can't die. I think. The jump is really hard to control and too short. If you crouch and jump at the same time the animation stops. With some fixes and more story maybe this game could be really neat.

This is pretty hilarious. :) I'm afraid that I'm pretty bad at it but I still like the silly concept and visuals.

This is a funny skin to put over a runner-- I liked it despite the crude visuals. Some nice touches: How mama throws different things depending on the environment, using levels rather than just running endlessly (this was a nice surprise), The gag props in the background.

pretty cool.

This is a funny skin to put over a runner-- I liked it; despite the crude visuals the punk rock kid and the angry mom really give some character and story to what might otherwise be just two blocks in a chase. Some nice touches: How mama throws different things depending on the environment, using levels rather than just running endlessly (this was a nice surprise), The gag props in the background.

pretty cool.

Nice entry! It has some good touch of humor! I noticed a bug in the last part of the game when your mother shoot you with a blaster. Once you jump over it, he desapear and few seconds later, it comes back right into your feets. Sometimes, your mother also shoot both on the top and the bottom line, so you can't avoid it. Appart from that, it was really well done for a first LD. Musics sound good. Keep it up ;)

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 ( 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.
