Revolutions 1.0
Take Caution!
This game is horrible (as people in the
comments have pointed out), and WILL

Consider it practice for next LD.
You need to get to the future.
Your plan of action: speed up history.
What did you use to make the "Nature Scene"?
- GeoVox

Do I know this game is poorly made?
- Yes, it is one of my first games made with Unity, and didn't have a full 48 hours to make it (or anything close to it).

Why can I sometimes see through the walls?
- I really don't know. Unity wasn't exhibiting this behavior when I was testing it in the editor. Your mileage may vary.

What do I do if I fall over?
- For some reason (I don't remember) I used a Rigidbody. Press "R" in these scenes to "stand up" again.

Will you work on this game afterwards?
- No. I really didn't like how the game turned out.

This is one of the most poorly constructed Ludum Dare games I have ever played. The controls are never fully explained (at first I thought it was a glitch I couldn't walk forward; also A and D turn you instead of, say, the mouse?), the goals are poorly defined (the printing press suddenly moved my forward in time without me doing anything but printing more copies?), and the game is incredibly poorly made (The character controller is set up in a way that allows it to rotate on an axis that makes you fall over?). I also wouldn't be surprised if the forest scene in the beginning is taken from a content pack instead of made from scratch, which is against the rules of Ludum Dare.

Also, your source code download is empty.

This is a crazy game, but i'm finished it anyway.
Looks like the forest from geovox rendered as one piece, because it drain my fps hard.
It seems that you do character controller as rigid body (poor choice), but forgot to restrict its rotation. I fell few times and was unable to play.

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! 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 ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

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 ( 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.
