Ludum Dare 25
December 14th-17th 2012 :: Theme: You are the Villain
Somso - Niavlys - 48 Hour Compo Entry
IMPORTANT : There *is* audio, but only with Chrome or Chromium! See below.
In order for this game to fit the theme "You Are The Villain", please just picture yourself (the red sphere) as a very bad person, whereas your enemies are the heroes that represent the goodness, the good and the great, otherwise nothing will really make you feel like a "villain" more than in any other game.
It's ok, you can rate 0 on "Theme". I made this game in less than 20 hours, after starting over three times. I wasn't satisfied with my previous ideas, this one seemed at least interesting to me.
I know this isn't finished. The only end is when you get tired of the FPS getting lower and lower as you complete phases. There isn't any real challenge either, as you have infinite "lives." I failed at adding goats as well, they may replace the blue balls in the post-compo version though.
You will have to play with Chrome or Chromium in order for the audio to be working, because other browsers don't support the Web Audio API yet. I would greatly appreciate it if you don't rate 0 in Audio just because you don't hear any audio. The sound is important for other categories as well, so I thank you very much if you make an effort to play in Chrome (assumimg you're not a regular user, that's cool if you are). :)
Anyway, please play, rate and comment my game, and I will check and rate and comment yours! Thanks :)
PS: Please don't look at the code too much. Some parts really are awful programming.
-- 2012-12-19: Fixed a bug where the ball would get stuck when starting too close from the border. Fixed preloading of images as well. (Still lagging under Firefox)

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.
