Pyburet

by spaghetti_pants - Compo Entry

"Pyburet" is a puzzle platformer about shifting and manipulating the platforms of each level.

I know it doesn't really fit the theme, but I already wasted an entire weekend working on it so fight me.

The music was made with Pxtone, the sound effects were made with Bfxr and Audacity, and the actual game was made with Clickteam Fusion 2.5.

It can be better with some polishing, it looks like it's not finished yet. Up and down buttons are shown in the start, but they don't work. It's tiresome to jump only with space, and the upping transition is instant (which is not pretty).

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

How do you generate your music? It's ultra chill!

Really cool mechanic although it sometimes felt a little clunky, it opens for some nice level design. Funny ending.

Pretty simple but really cool!
It maybe need some polish, but for a compo game that's perfect :D
I loved the audio !

Very cool idea - never seen somthing like that. Music is excellent. The ending - 10/10. Generally the whole game 10/10.

I love this entry. The mechanics are surprising and the ending is great. At first I thought the warping was a glitch, but then I realized it was the central mechanic. So cool.

I wonder - was warping to the top of the platform even if you're not on it originally a glitch and you worked the level design around it? Or did you plan it like that from the beginning?

Also, what is "Pyburet"? An anagram for "puberty"?

I really really love this! The mechanic is super interesting, even though it took a while for me to get what was going on. The music was fantastic!

The physics driving these puzzles seems very jumpy and abrupt. Toggle the position of the colored platforms to use them almost like a paddle to knock your avatar up or down to where it needs to be to grab the keys to unlock the level. Still needs a bit of polish to feel like a real game.

I actually came back over to your game to ask again. hehe. How do you generate your music? Also, I tried to grab your music file out of your source to listen to it but all I can find is a .exe and a .mfa which Idk how to open.

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.
