Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Evil Keeper - XmmmX - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be the endboss of a game? Well, here is a game that answers your questions.
In Evil Keeper you have to build your own dungeon and fight every hero who dares to enter your lair. Each hero tries to find as many treasures as possible before he challenges you to an epic fight to the death.
Claim the victory, take his money and expand your dungeon!
Find more detailed information ingame.
Programming Language: C# (XNA 4.0)
This is my second ludum dare entry. The code is really messed up this time because I had no time to comment and optimize it so if you have any questions concerning the code feel free to ask.
Info: If you have some performance issues press 'V' ingame once to disable frameskipping.
If there are any bugs or glitches please inform me by posting a comment. I will fix them as soon as possible.
Please enjoy my game as much as I did making it.
EDIT: You can place new dungeon ground on gray walls next to grey tiles. The red area is the bossbattle arena. You cannot build there.
EDIT2: Ok, I am going to make a post-compo version.
EDIT3: Added the first post-compo version. I am sorry, I haven't had much time so it only contains small changes. But there is still more to come. The changelog.txt contains all the changes.

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.
