Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
A day in the life of the Minotaur - jfroco - 48 Hour Compo Entry
The game is far from finished, but I really wanted to deliver after 48 hours. Last LD I couldn't so I had to submit for the jam.
I wanted to make a game with a gameplay that I wasn't used to (a board game) as last entries were platform games. So, I'm happy because I think I made a good skeleton for board games.
Things I couln't implement were: a combat mini game, a shop and different clasess of enemies.
I will deliver an out of competition Android version, as well.
All days are the same for Asterion, The Minotaur: The kind people of Crete send you a virgin to sacrifice, and warriors show up to fight you.
You have to find the virgin at the end of the corridors of the Laberynth.
How to play:
Each level is gererated randomly.
You move over the board throwing a dice.
Press "Move" to throw the dice (1 to 12). You lose one point of energy when you throw the dice.
When you find a bifurcation you have to choose the way you want to go.
There are four different elements in the board:
Gold: just for fun.
Warriors: you fight him (lose health) and get energy eating their hearts.
Potions: you get health.
Virgin: the goal of each board. You get energy eating her.
You lose when you run out of health or energy.
When you are not moving, you can move the board around dragging it to see areas out of the screen. When you press "move" the board will correct its position

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.
