Triplets Team

by davalcordub - Jam Entry

Triplets Team is a game where you move in a geometric world and you can change to different shapes to accomplish goals. The mechanical are very simple, you just move with the arrow keys, plus to change your shape you need to press A, S or D.

NOTE: The game is not over yet, given the short time I had, I could not finish applying all mechanical and focused only on the movement through the levels and the application of basic type of collision. I will continue working on the game to finish and I'll upload it in the same folder on Dropbox with a different name in the next couple of weeks. There are just 2 levels.

The concept of the game is to find the exit at all levels, but from start to level 3 must avoid obstacles appear, you should also collect items that will give you score. The game has no history.

It is a very simple game, need a lot of improvements, but to be my first game I think I did a very good job ;) ...

It was making me open it with gamemaker not as an export. Can you make an exported version without needing to dowload gamemaker? Idk if you can.

Don't know if I'm missing something, but that was just two screens of levels. One thing I noticed is that you are allowing no movement on collisions, you could still allow X movements or Y movements depending on your collision.. sometimes, just a thought.

Are there only the two levels or did I miss something? Tried it out, but I don't quite see where you're going with it yet. Congrats on getting your first game playable though. Final note: I'd suggest exporting as an .exe rather than an installer, because it lowers the bar for others to play it (I made the same mistake on a previous LD).

First of all, welcome to Ludum Dare! I hope you're enjoying it!
It's very simple, not much to it since it's not complete, but still it's a start! Congrats on your first game!

Btw I agree with the tips that @Hankenstien and @mike.cullingham gave you!

A good start for some good game ... too bad I have no idea what it could be (don't be afraid to talk about what you wanted to do). It still lacks gameplay concept. The best part is the audio for me, music's nice. ^^

I really appreciate all comments, I did not know About That Problem with the executable, mistake of beginner hahahaha, also I understand the point about the levels and the gameplay. I finished uploading a new file to Dropbox which is a .zip that contains the .exe with the one all can play the game without the need of install it. Really thanks for the advice guys, and update the detailed description with the concept of the game , given the short time I had I could not finish implementing all mechanical and why is that the game is incomplete.

There's not much here, but I like the direction. Keep at it and I'm sure we'll see something bigger and better from you next time!

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.
