Ancient Tech No. 34

by evilindiegames - Jam Entry

Ancient Tech No. 34 is an experimental game made for LD36 jam and AGJam 2016 (Audiogame Jam http://jams.gamejolt.io/AGJam).
Our main goal was to make a game based on audio and fully playable for people of any level of sight.

Help an Ancient Technology No. 34 from Empire of Ice to save their realm.
Do not let the music stop.

"I AM AN ANCIENT TECH NO. 34 FROM THE REALM OF ICE.
WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS OUR EMPIRE DIES.
IN THE SILENCE PRESS ANY KEY TO RESUME OUR SONG.
DON'T PRESS WHEN YOU HEAR IT BECAUSE THAT WILL BREAK MY HEART.
YOU CAN CLOSE YOUR EYES IF YOU WANT. "


Controls: Any key, the game uses audio so headphones or speakers recommended.

How to play?
When the music stops hit any key on keyboard to turn it again on.
Be fast to restore life of the Empire.
Do not press the key when the music plays.
Have fun with Ancient Tech No. 34! :)

We will work on this concept to the end of Audiogame Jam.
Ludum Dare jam version is still something like work in progress... :)

This is a very innotiative game!
I really enjoyed the mechanics. Not only was it something I haven't seen before, but it was also fun to play, giving a thrill whenever trying to react quickly, and being scared that the music could stop at any moment.
Great jam entry!

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.
