Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
You naughty beast! - goerp - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Please try the post-compo Christmas edition after you tried the compo one.
It's easier, has more sounds, updated graphics, eating and drinking and is what I intended to do (and much more fun I think).
This evil little cow has doomed the earth!
Or maybe not?
There are instructions in the intro, but its a bit of a Chinese jugler kind of game: you have to balance defending the trees, growing the trees, eating and drinking for the growing (in the post compo one). It can get pretty hectic and I meant it to be that way (only not as much as in the compo version).
The best way to start is to defend a single tree or trees close to another. Trees keep on sucking Co2 from the air, the larger the tree the more they absorb C02.
Hint: you can charge the birds out of the game, before they land, but don't miss: the charge can not be interrupted.
Controls are all over the place in the compo edition:
Left and Right for moving, 'P' for Peeing, 'S' for Pooing, and 'C' for Charging (as in Charge!).
In the post-compo Christmas Edition:
Left and Right for moving, UP for Peeing, DOWN for Pooing, and 'C' for Charging (as in Charge!).
You can use 'X' for eating and 'Z'for drinking, but only in the Christmas Edition.
There is a score, but sadly the winning condition is only in the Post-compo.
Oh yeah: you have to defend the trees from enemies, not plants (typo).
You must sign in to comment.
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.
