Beach Bods

by Rulrite - Compo Entry

With summer just around the corner, there's no better time to get your beach bod in shape. The race to nab the beefiest and bounciest bods is already well underway!

You have just 30 seconds - that's half a minute - to help people make their dreams a reality. Don't be shy - just poke away at any imperfections until you've crafted a masterpiece. That's right! Hooray for otherwise unrealistic and/or unobtainable beauty standards!

>>> How to Play <<<

- Just use the mouse! Click a body part to change its shape.
- There are four parts you can change: two chest parts and two stomach parts.
- Try to match the body shape of the model in the background! Use it as a reference.
- If you make sure not to skip over 'perfect' body parts, you can earn a juicy combo bonus. If only you weren't on a strict time limit...
- What? Why do you only have 30 seconds...? Well, it's not my fault! Blame the bomb!
- If the window is too big or too small, you can just click and drag the borders to resize it.

>>> Difficulty Differences <<<

Easy: Only male figures will appear.
Medium: Both men and women will show up.
Hard: Bodies appear even more scrambled than before!

>>> Notes <<<

The music was randomly generated by cgMusic. It's helped me out a bunch; I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't know where else to turn for the Ludum Dare!

I must say that I'm very sorry for the sound effects. I mean, how do you even make a 'ding' sound with your mouth?

Finally, please have fun playing my game! Let me know if you can beat a score of... 15!

You have a style and personality in all your stuff that I really like. The game was fun and made me laugh. Vocal sfx are perfect - I wouldn't apologize for them at all! Especially the *ding* :) Seeing the totally lopsided bodies on hard was really funny

That's me ready for the summer! I had a lot of fun with this - it's a great concept with sharp execution. Graphics are nice and the audio is superb!

Can I beat a score of 15? Well I got 9. So no. :)

Apr 22, 2016 @ 3:06am

Wowww, your game is awesome!! hehe

Really, I laughed a lot with the strange shapes, in level hard, and, mainly, with the sound effects... very, very creative man!

I also liked the challenger gameplay. Great job! :D

Ahh, I was forgetting, after many years trying and trying, I got the following score:

Easy: 24
Medium: 18
Hard: 7 (I tried, but I was unable to get something greater :( )

Very well done.

Great game! I always love pixel art, and it's a funny implementation of the theme! The music was nice as well, thanks for sharing about cgMusic, I wish I'd known that before LD. Your sound effects were very fun and gave the game character. Even if I wished for more time (especially in hard), the fact that the game lasts for 30 seconds I believe is a good thing, since people playing can try out all the difficulties.
There's only 1 thing that disappoints me... That i can't get a beach bod so fast in real life. :P Great job.

It's really fun! kinda wish there was a way to get bonus time because the voice acting is just amazing :D

Apr 25, 2016 @ 6:20am

Fun voice audio and the concept was a great use of the theme. Clever fun simple game that was quite addictive to play. Also think the 30 second countdown was a nice additional pressure.

Your game definitely stands out due to its unique idea. Great execution as well! I could see it in extended form as an app store download.

Super funny Compo entry, love your idea and theme interpretation. The pixel art and animations were eye-candy and hilarious. You also did an especially good work on Audio, that's pretty rare to hear voices in a jam game. I really enjoyed playing it, get a score of 17 in medium and liked the way you put little funny details which makes the entry memorable and strong overall.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
