by Electron - Jam Entry

Membrum is a hack n' slash / shooter action arcade game in which we control a a character with the power to convert one of its limbs into three different weapons and Fight three different types of monsters.
A weapon will only damage a single type of enemy.
The Sword will damage the dog like creatures.
The Punch will damage the giant creatures.
The Gun will damage the bee like creatures.

Controls -
W - jump
A/D - left/right
Space - toggle between weapons
LMB - Use the weapon

P.S - A lot of the art seems very very unpolished, this is because just a few hours ago. The Software (Game Maker Studio) crashed (maybe because I had the beta/unstable) version. So I lost a lot of hard work but nonetheless Hope you enjoy :)

Nice game. Loved the platformer mechanics. That shape-shifting hand is bad ass ! Also, pretty sweet visuals. :)

Like it. Can see myself playing more although I am rubbish at such games. Started getting better when I figured out you need to dance around the big guys. Liked the graphics, intrigued to know what they would have been like without the data loss you mentioned. Sound needs work - music maybe?

Even though the graphics were simple, they still had a certain amount of polish to their animation. I especially liked the sword attack animation, it just works really well. The sounds were good too, although there was no music. The game is fun, the changing weapons to deal with different monsters is very fun and engaging, I liked it a lot.

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.
