Atomicollider

by seizeTheDia - Jam Entry

We are proud to announce that we are submitting to Ludum Dare for our first time ever -- can't believe we made it.

This is my FIRST completed game! I'm very proud of the fact that we came up with an idea Friday night, had major delays on Saturday, and STILL made it to this moment. I'm sure there's bugs, the game needs some major balancing and I will be working on that for a post jam version. This confirms it, game dev is awesome.

Your atomic-twin and energy mate has been captured by an evil atom! Fly the dangerous corridors of quantum space to collide and unleash your atomic fury to gain enough energy to break your twin free!

- Wait for particles to turn green to break them and gain their energy. Use triangle power form to break other particles (key: T / pad: triangle)

- Slow down time to get set yourself up for a clean break by shifting to your hex power form (key: H / pad: square)

- Your energy degrades over time

- You'll need to reach 100 energy to break your twin's prison, once you do you you will be ENERGIZED and will have a short time to find the twin atom before you'll need more energy!

TWIN ATOM IS THE BIG PARTICLE TRAPPED INSIDE BIG BUBBLE OF WHITE LINES (im too tired to describe this much better right now...)

- Controls: (best played with controller)

Use T (triangle on PS4) to break green particles

Use H (square on PS4) to shift to time-shift form and slow down time!

Arrow Keys (left joystick) to move.

Beautiful looking game, fab music. I like the idea.
I couldn't find a use for the hex power, though.

Nice graphics, but the gameplay is confusing. Things seem to hit me when they're nowhere near, and the amount of timing required to hit things while they're green is pretty brutal. The amount of health you have left doesn't seem to be communicated, either.

A nice entry for a first, but it was far too difficult imo; it seems that most enemies kill you in a single hit before you get much of a chance to do anything.

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.
