War Never Changes

by kopo - Jam Entry

War Never Changes

Move: Arrow Keys
Shoot: Z or CTRL
Quit: Alt + F4 or CTRL + SHIFT + ESCP -> terminate WarNeverChanges.exe

The experience might differ each time you launch the game, this is of course a feature and absolutely not a bug or anything else

We wanted to show that time may pass but the war on aliens never changes...

This is our first game ever, made with unity.
The result might seem crappy, and it surely is, but it is far from what we expected to commit at first. Assembling our different works was by far our biggest challenge.
Hope you find some fun in in it;

N.B: You cannot win, because in war there is no winner, only deaths

Nice game. Bit easy though </sarcasm>.

It runs, but that's it. That hit sound.....

It's hard to make a decent game and no one here can claims he made it, but what's important is that you managed to finish something and commit in time !
For the game itself, it's really hard to not die, shooting sound is maybe too special to be taken seriously. But the base game works, and that's cool :)

It certainly runs. However, it started really easily since I moved all 3 of my ships into the same spot then moved left / right. Looked ok!

It's a pretty weird game, but hey good job for finishing on time. It took a bit before I recognized the idea, flashing through warzones shooting the same way no matter whether it's past or future. I enjoy that "sigh" hit sound.

I think I broke the game, my second ship was spiting a bullet PER FRAME and I suddenly was overrun by at least 200 aliens! Fun times.

Congrats on finishing a game in unity, always wanted to move to it but keep putting it off. Liked the concept of the different time zones representing the same war, interesting take on the theme. Would be nice to see the game polished further with feedback to being hit and shooting enemies.

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.
