Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Happy Little Murder Friends - farmergnome - 48 Hour Compo Entry
My second LD48 entry...
HAPPY LITTLE MURDER FRIENDS
Rampage through a list of towns with different ways to play, do you play the psycho gunman that unloads on crowds in the open? Or a bruiser who beats his victims to a pulp melee weapons in the alleys? An explosive expert who sets up the perfect explosion then ducks away?
Choose between 5 serial killers, each with there own perks and an array of weapons and fetishes to help your rampage. Get revenge.... Have fun. In that order.
CONTROLS - [WASD to move, Left Mouse button to fire, Right Mouse button to use fetish]
GOAL - Target kill highlighted victims in each town, reach the kill quota to unlock the next town. Avoid murdering people who aren't your target as it will alert police.
TIPS- Shoot / Punch Dumpsters for a high chance of weapon drops.
Pick the right fetish for the right character, some combinations are better than others.
Avoid shooting if you have to, it alerts the crowd much quicker than melee attacks.
If you are wanted, you can hide in a house and eventually the law will give up.
Leave your targets inside houses until last, they make for easy pickings as there is only one path of escape.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.
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.
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.
We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.
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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.
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.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
