Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Holly Jolly Pyromaniac - UndergroundPixel - Jam Entry
From the makers of the 2011 smash hit, Holiday Havoc, comes another classic Christmas title boasting retro pixel art, catchy chiptune tracks, and shockingly addictive gameplay! Underground Pixel is proud to present... Holly Jolly Pyromaniac!
Some of Santa's elves are planning to revolt... and rather than have a calm and rational conversation with them about it, he'd rather play the role of a villain this year and blow their houses up with explosives! Traitorous elves live in green houses, and loyal elves live in purple ones. Don't take out your own forces! Compete with your friends on the leaderboards! Who will claim the #1 spot for themselves?
This game has it all! Panicking elves, a deranged Santa Claus, and GOATS, and this game can now be all yours for the low, low price of FREE. So play now! Now. Do it now. Are you playing yet? Why not? Stop reading this message. PLAY IT NOW!!!

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.
