    Interesting idea. Execution though, was just confusing different colored blocks. I couldn't remember from the tutorial what I was supposed to do.

    Is there a visual cue for who the killer is? I tried several times but ended up just guessing several times. Interesting concept!

    A cool idea! I can see this being quite fun. I like the use of the theme too. It's a neat concept to allow the player only one action, and their real involvement is investigative thinking.

    Love the quote from the killer at the end. =)

    The idea reminds me of Spy Party, but I think you did quite a good job for a 48h project. The first time I played I had no idea how to identify the killer except by luck, but after half a dozen tries I settled on following the trail of dead and finding the nearest guest.

    Hah, I like the killer's quote, too! Evoked a laugh :) Anyway, as others have said, really neat concept! I like where it could go with additional features.

    yea! I love this kind of game. There should only be one block with a single color. That or give everyone numbers, That way you can rule suspects out. I would say "ok its not blue or green because they were left in a room together", but there were multiple of that one color. Other then that I totally dig this game and good job!

    A little confusing, but I like the idea.

    You should add some other way to identify the killer than just by letting him kill someone. Other than that though, this concept has good potential.

    Worst cop ever: watches killer kill people to determine who killer is

    Cluless indeed - adding a clue system would make this game better (so you can catch the killer before anyone dies), and some sound too would be nice too - maybe combine both additions in one?
    The best I did was only 2 people dead.

    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

    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.

    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.
