Druid: Wait I'm a What?

by NCBRdev - Compo Entry

In this game you try to survive 5 rounds of enemies in an arena.
To aid you in this you can pick up scrolls that transforms you into various animals.

Some animals are faster, do more damage or have more health than your basic human form.

Please enjoy :)

Neat little game. I think it would benefit most from explaining more what the shifting is for. So I managed to shift into two cat forms, but couldn't figure out what they do. Also the attack range was not visible, so it was a bit guesswork. I love the title image.

Cerno_b, I totally agree, in the end I just ran out of time and energy. Perhaps I will fix this once the LDJam is over :)

I loved the art of this game. I also feel like it should be made more obvious what is happening to me in the different forms, if anything, as Cerno_b said

Good game, art felt fuzzy

Title screen and main music is .. 10\10
But gameplay and sounds are not very good, you know.
Awww.. so hard to rate this/

I don't really know what happened, I just pressed space, touched everything and won. I liked the pixel art though.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Dear gods, that alarm sound when you win! THAT ALARM SOUND WHEN YOU WIN! ARRRRGH!

But aside from that? Cute little song! And the cats and rabbits weren't too bad. But really, it's just a neat idea that's a bit underdeveloped. Which I can see you know, from the comments below.

I think one thing that would improve the game with very little work is increasing the size of everything on the screen. Like maybe use 3x or 4x pixels. Easier to tell what's going on that way, with the art style you used. Something to think about for next time.

Nice little game. Definitely needs some indicator of your attack and damage though. Some lovely drawing and nice music.

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.
