Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Dungeon Slimes

by somnolentPumpkin - Compo Entry

I decided to make a short little adventure game based on tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons. This is my first Ludum Dare game. :)

Controls:
WSAD or arrow keys to move
X to roll dice
Space to advance the dialogue.

The sound effects were a bit last minute, so I'm not offended if you have to mute the game. :)

That was AMAZING ! I really loved the setup and the way you literally have to THROW dice at your ennemy ! :D :D :D Many funz with the narration/dialogues !
The only downside in the mechanic is that when you throw your dice, you cant move anymore, making the only strategy : go as far as you can and spam the attack button :P

Very interesting Concept! I liked how the individual Maps still looked like tabletop maps. The Dialogues and Ending was Fun too! And you attack by rolling a Dice, very enjoyable!

Really cool game. But sound effects are so annoying that I had to turn them off. The narration is amazing, really immersive.

Funny game!
Just some critiques. Putting the attack keys under the wasd is not practical. Also the dialogues are very good and funny but the sound they make is annoying.

Interesting theme interpretation, funny story telling, all it needs is a good music. Apart from that, great job!

This was really fun to play, I loved the throwing dice thing as well, and the ending was great, totally unexpected!

Oh, nice! That was some fun! A tabletop-like RPG eh? Nice take on the theme, lots of humour, nice story too! :)

The controls work pretty nice too! Though blue slimes offer quite a challenge! :P After they split into red slimes you've got to spam the attack button a lot, and even then you risk dying. :P

Overall, the game has a nice atmosphere, really great! :)
