Ludum Dare 28
Concert Crashers - atombrot - Jam Entry
Imagine you go with friends to a concert of a band you love. You are standing in line for tickets. Finally it's your turn and you can buy a ticket. But you only get one ;) What about your friends?
This was more or less our idea behind the game.
Sadly we could not put in all the ideas we have planned for.
Use the left and right keys to walk around. Switch your player with N (web) or TAB (windows). Interact by using the SPACE key.
The background music is made by my friend mentex.
The game itself is made with java and libgdx. You need to have java installed for it to run.
brookman helped us with the webgl/gwt problems. Seems that gwt doesn't like zip compressed tmx files. Thanks very much for the help ! :D
I updated the webgl version. The TAB key wouldn't work correctly. I also changed the resolution so it is a bit bigger, but otherwise it's the same codebase.
We have identified following major issues, that we'd like to address for a post compo version (we will be working on that for some months):
- Distractions need to be implemented, so the ticket player has something to do besides scouting the area.
- Add a main menu
- Add a winning screen ;)
- Add intro/tutorial levels that explain the game mechanics step by step.
- Make the players and guards better distinguishable from the rest (we tried to do this with the particles, but in case of a very clear background you nearly can't see the particles).
- Fix controls in web version ;)
- Add lighting
- Add dance animation (at last, you want to go to the dancefloor)
- More themes (we already had planned some other themes, but didn't have the time to make the backgrounds and props for it)
- add soundfx
- 2d Lighting to give it a bit more atmosphere ;)

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.
