The Delivery Hour

by Chris Olsen - Jam Entry

A lone shipping-bot prowls the halls of it's ominous factory. Trying to make its weekly quota.

Hit the button and race against the clock to get the best weekly overall time.

Controls -

A + D = Move Left/Right
S = Deploy trampoline form
Mouse = Aim your shipping container
F5 = Restart Day

Apologies I completely ran out of time and haven't finished it. Working on a post-jam version right now.

I finished the game with 211 seconds in the second level and the third with 134 seconds. To bad that you ran out of time to add more levels, because a I liked it.
The best, the robot morphing effect and the grey colors of the scene.
The sound is good, but it only sounded in the first level. The game was silenced on the next levels.

Wow the amount of skill to master this simple game is HUGE, which is nice, the game has some perfectly balanced controls, very good. Visually speaking, the volumetric lights are very good and the running machine animation, even being a minor detail, perfectly done, good job.

As usual ;), amazing graphics and mood (sadly sound seemed broken in day 2 and 3). 5 star performance!

The game looks REALLY, REALLY well, plays really well, feels well, and sounds well. The whole game is really good except that I got frustrated with the controls because they were challenging, but I think that's what you were going for and it worked. Overall good game.

A classic game but the production make it so much satisfying <3
Kudos to the morphing animation.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

It looked great, but the controls were too fidgety for me. Maybe add a very slow crawl to the trampoline form so you can make small adjustments, instead of fussing with the hexagon.

Great entry! The graphics and animations are brilliant! The truck, the machine, the robot, great work!

The sounds provide a really nice to the game and the simple mechanics and controls are really welcoming, as controls respond really fast!

Lots of challenging possibilities in this one! :) Congrats!

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.
