Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
PrisonBreak - iiAtlas - Jam Entry
EDIT: For those of you stuck on level two, there are two doors on level one. Make sure to try both! *hint hint*
PrisonBreak is a game my sister, Lola Wegman, and I (Atlas Wegman) created for the LD25 Jam. After shuffling through a few ideas we stumbled upon this one, a prison break. You are criminal who opens his cell door, and must escape prison. If caught by the guards you are sent straight back to your cell. There are no checkpoints, there is no saving. This game is the real deal...sort of.
Gameplay is relatively intuitive. Arrow keys to move, mouse to look around. Your goal is to dodge all guards and make it to the green doorway. Some levels have to doors, be carful which one you chose. Guards have a sort of "sixth sense" and can sense you even when you are not directly in their line of sight. Be careful, and good luck!
My sister and I worked nonstop to put out this game, complete with audio, multiple levels, and a couple tiers of gameplay elements. As such, the file size is not small (~15mb). If you are playing on a web browser, please be patient. It's worth it!
I hope you enjoy PrisonBreak, I think it came out better then expected :)

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.
