Limberby Wefiends - Jam Entry
*This game works best when you pump up the music!*
Hey ya'll! Welcome to our Ludum Dare 35 Submission, Limber. The theme this time around was "Shapeshift". Do some stretches and jump on the track to bust some moves.
Press and HOLD the correct key to contort your body to the shape of the oncoming panels.

We're really happy with what we ended up with. It's definitely not the kind of game we would normally make, and that's one of the awesome things about doing Ludum Dare.
Serious props to everyone that put something out, it was crazy challenging! Hope you guys enjoy our game, we know it's really weird.
We'll be streaming other people's games on and off, so give us a follow on Twitch to see when that's going on. We play the games of people that comment on our game, and we also take requests as they come. We love talking to other devs so drop on by: https://www.twitch.tv/wefiends
If you don't have time to hang out live, leave your Twitter handle along with your comment and we'll try and tweet you a highlight of us playing your game :)
Of course with the quick dev time there are always some issues, here are some of the ones we know about. (I'll keep updating this list as people bring stuff up):
- We don't have any support for non-QWERTY keyboards. This is something we really wanted to support, but the time didn't allow for it.
- In the late rounds, the starting panel for each round is unfairly quick, still not sure what's causing this.

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.
