Save Her

by Matlahvi - Jam Entry

Hi everyone! It's the first time I jam alone and I quite happy I could do this, yay! I don't have a clue about programming, so I used Fungus for Unity in order to do this game.

It's a narrative story where you are a soldier in war and you have to use an old radio to help a woman who is running away from prision.

Hope you all like it! I'll apreciate your comments :)

P.D: Sorry if my english is bad sometimes during the game, but it's not my first lenguage and I write a LOT.

Me acabo de pasar el juego,y he de suponer que existirán mas opciones,pero para mi es un buen juego,lo recomiendo firmemente,debido al tema de las decisiones se notan que son importantes para la historia,y es lo que importa,yo le pongo un 10

Pues me ha gustado, ciertamente. Tanto en la toma de decisiones (que tienen un peso real y directo en el desarrollo de acontecimientos), la tensión que se crea, el diálogo entre personajes, el apartado visual.. No sé, me he sentido como si fuera un extra dentro del mundo de This War of Mine, pero llevado a otro nivel distinto.

He terminado el juego en todas sus rutas, y aqui viene mi primer punto positivo. Las rutas no son muy largas y cuando hay muchas opciones eso se agradece, asi se puede hacer otro. Me gustan mucho las decisiones porque las noto como si tuvieran peso de verdad, ya sea para obtener informacion de las noticias o para indicar la ruta segura a ella. En general, me ha parecido entretenida y en algunos conceptos ingeniosa.

Me ha gustado la forma de llevar la narrativa, esos detalles que aunque son innecesarios hacen sentir vivos a los personajes.

La parte artística pues poco mas se puede hacer en una JAM, una ilustración bien hecha toma demasiado tiempo del que claramente se carece, pero los colores me parecieron muy acertados.

Por ultimo la música, yo soy de esas personas repelentes que si no tiene una ambientación musical que le de inmersión no disfruta el juego y en este caso lo hizo bastante bien salvo en el momento de la primera llamada de Dalia, me pareció un poco exagerada y mas que general suspenso o intriga sentía que estaba siendo perseguido yo.

Un saludo.

PD: Siento no escribir en ingles, no tengo el conocimiento suficiente para expresarme por completo como me gustaría.

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

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.

Nice one. It is rather interesting to try it again and again, because you want to read all the finals. Such a deep game :)

Enhorabuena por tu primera jam en solitario! El concepto y la historia molan, aunque un poquito más de feedback visual no le hubiera ido mal, y trabajar un poco más el fondo (la pistola de la mesa xD), por otra parte, investigar un poquito de programación en unity para hacer cosas super simples puede ampliar mucho el abanico de game feel del juego. Por ejemplo, esta historia podría haber sido super immersiva si pudieras girar la rueda de la radio para sintonizar los canales! Imagínate la sensación de ir escuchando transmisiones: radio, compañeros, noticias... y de pronto, un mensaje de ayuda mezclado entre ellos! Y luego cosas como Dalia pasándote frecuencias para escuchar a los soldados y darle info y tal.

Todo eso programando simplemente una rueda que gira, yo creo que vale la pena aprenderlo :P

En fin, ya paro xD Felicidades de nuevo por el juego!

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. Many solo participants 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.
