Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Monologuer - Devenger - 48 Hour Compo Entry
SUPER-USEFUL HINT: Move your villain to the phone on the left wall to convert Infamy into money!
Maximise your monologuing time before Green Man's rescuers shut down your operation! Multi-task between talking at your victim, and activating your array of spike traps to defend your lair. Just remember: only monologuing increases your score!
Mouse - click the phone, Green Man and the control panel to move your villain to them. When at the control panel, click on ceilings to place traps; click traps to activate them.
M - turn off music loop (recommended for extended play)
S - turn off sound effects
P - pause
R - restart once game has been lost
- Once you've scored some kills, you'll have some Infamy (shown in the Infamy bar in the left of the villain's chamber); click the phone (below the Infamy bar) to move the villain to it; while he's there, he'll make phonecalls to trade Infamy for $$$.
- Spread your traps all around your lair; that way, you can thin out lots of enemies every time you use the control panel.
- Don't panic if you let a couple of those pesky invaders through; your villain has a gun with 6 shots, sealing the fate of the first 6 rescuers to reach him.
Thanks to ChevyRay and everyone behind FlashPunk, Matt Tuttle (and co?) for porting it to Haxe to make HaxePunk, increpare and co. for Bfxr, and DrPetter for musagi (even if I didn't use it very well!).
P.S. If you want to feel you've 'completed' the game, get the villain to run out of dialogue. If he isn't cut off mid-speech too much, this only takes 2-3 minutes of monologuing. Of course, you'll have to deal with the invaders in between all that...

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.
