A little summary

I didn’t really have time to play a lot of your games, but here is what I experienced:

At first, the theme was interesting. But after seeing other games, I started to dislike the theme. Every other game is a normal game with player having a set of shapes he can shift between. Even the names have “shape” and “shift” as substrings extremely often.

I found quite many games I couldn’t run. Either they require complicated setups, or they only have a win64 version, or something else. Even some Unity web games were stubborn. This discourages me a lot.

Comments are unusually pleasant this time. Thanks for everyone who commented or just played my game, and also thanks to people who visited my stream.

Finally, I want to highlight some games with little ratings. They need your votes more than I do. By the way, I advise you to bookmark others’ games while the compo/jam is in progress, I played most of the following games because I saw their WIP posts.

Snakeshift,

a jam entry by Mirroar

A snake game that’s a turn-based puzzle. As the snake grows, it changes properties, which requires you to plan your moves ahead.

 

Square Peg in a Round Hole,

a compo entry by ChaosShark

What seems like a simple puzzle platformer, is actually a non-linear story-driven game. Surprisingly fun to play.

 

The Shapes of the Druid,

a compo entry by BluShine

A mix between sokoban and tangram. The core mechanic is built around different animal shapes with individual uses.

 

Block 1,

a compo entry by crazyrems

A clever platformer that lets you control your character by squeezing it. Minimalistic, but polished in every aspect.

 

The Quest for the Lindworm,

a jam entry by ZYXer

An unique RPG game that lets you use body parts of defeated enemies. Make the strongest and the funniest-looking monster by taking the best from everyone.
