To What a Mountain?

by ilo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first Ludum Dare entry. Made in Unity and Gimp. Quick to complete. I tried to compensate for the poor gameplay with humour.

SPACE to jump. CTRL to punch.

Edit: downloadable version 'should' work now.

And 'WARNING: there is some rudeness, yes. I apologise if it's not your cup of tea.' :)

With the downloadable one, I got an error.
"There should be 'TWaM_Data'
folder next to the executable"

You need to include all the files methinks.

I really laughed at start and I think this game is really cool! Good job!

It was really fun! I disliked the... shocking final scenes though ;) Very funny, and a nice difficulty curve (I finished with no health left). Some music would have really made it ;)

COME HERE LITTLE VILLAGERS... BWA HA HA.

I enjoyed the humour ^_^ Otherwise a straight forward platformer. The jump sound was a bit repetitive.

Fun little game. If I had to critique one thing, the positional panning of the sound is too extreme. Since the player character is on the left side of the screen most of the game, 90% of the sounds come from one speaker. This was great though. Loved the ending!

Haha, brilliant.

I have to say that the first twist was freaking hilarious.

That was fun. And a bit harsh, but it's ok!

Fun game, On the web player with ear phones I didn't hear any sound though.
The humor was good. I especially liked them commenting on his hands and then the reveal at the end.
There were a few glitches where you could be standing on the edge of a building and not crush it.

The writing is funny, but I didn't really like the gameplay.

angrygeometry says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 5:52pm

the controls were really unresponsive to me but i guess that's the wooden pc i have. still, i got quite far. the humour wasn't really my thing, but it was okay!

Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:01pm

hehe ..the punch animation is the best :)

Lidfrid says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:15pm

Great humor :)

crazyheckman says ...
Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:18pm

Pretty fun, with good art. I felt like there didn't need to be two scenes where people are gettin it on right in a row. But it was funny and lots of fun.

Audio didn't worked for me (web)

I wish more games would try to be funny.

Pitoum says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 5:38pm

Ah ah ! Love love love the end :) Was a brief nice funny moment ! Thanks a lot (and nice graphics !)

zorf says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 5:41pm

A similar idea to our game. :) Great fun, although the ending was a bit... surprising.

Apr 25, 2012 @ 9:46pm

Funny:) Reminded me of the dialogue in Super Mega Worm

yanmania says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 9:52pm

Great fun! He reminds me of Grawp.

Shigor says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 11:55pm

Heh, glad to see that I'm not the only one who put some "mature" stuff in the LD :)
Yeah, gameplay mostly sucks, but it really is funny. Extra points for the postmortem in verses :)

fatSquirrel says ...
Apr 25, 2012 @ 11:59pm

And who was firing the cannons? Good work.

johnfn says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 12:00am

Hilarious game. Good work. "Who's firing the cannons anyway?"

Yapikom says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 12:08am

Funny, Looks semi-nice but incosistent. I loved the animation of the people running away, but that may have been the weakest punch a giant have ever done. :D

strega says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 1:01am

Very funny. stomping on the villagers was really fun. I liked the simple art style.

omaha says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 3:49am

That was hilarious! Especially the scene with the king. Love it.

tried running under WINE on linux but it locks up at start, so can't test.

blob says ...
Apr 26, 2012 @ 9:24pm

SQUISH. The game was fun! Final scenes were... not my style.

Apr 29, 2012 @ 8:13am

The random texts make this awesome.

azurenimbus says ...
Apr 29, 2012 @ 11:48pm

It was a lot of fun and hilarious. But it got a bit repetitive, even though the dialogue was awesome. There could be more to do.

vigrid says ...

Congratulations on completing LD. Too bad there was no sound. For some reason I didn't really like this stomp-and-destroy game as much as I liked the other ones - probably because of the blood and swearing. Odd, because this is exactly my cup of tea.

FrederickK says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 1:44am

Best humor!
But I don't see how it fits the theme...

KevinWorkman says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 2:36am

Hahaha, nicely done. This is a great start, and it included a surprising amount of variety (different enemies, different kinds of levels), especially for an LD game. Great job.

ilo says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 3:01am

@ FrederickK - size is relative. If you are big, then the world must seem tiny from your perspective, right?

Anyway, I ought to have commented sooner, but thanks to everyone who commented and played my game - I had a real blast making it and I'm glad to see that, for the most part, the humour hasn't gone unnoticed or been lost on too many people (as I feared). :D

free_napalm says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 3:21pm

You redefined antihero with this game lol
I had a lot of fun despite of the rather repetitive gameplay, due to the dialogue and story.

Fireblend says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 5:15pm

Haha, this was like a not-so-arcadeish and more rude version of my game. Really enjoyed it, great job!

Datamosh says ...
May 1, 2012 @ 11:41pm

THE most humorous game so far. The graphics helped and are really good AND funny (the tiny people waving their little arms). Stops at the right moment, when gameplay maaaybe starts getting repetitive, but I actually wanted to see more dialogs :) Pleaaaase make a big massive version of this.

spooks says ...
May 2, 2012 @ 5:59pm

Very fun! funny as well. Actually it had a great mood as well.

Cute and funny, but the opening scene is too long and he moves too slowly. Also, for the future, don't use CTRL or SHIFT as primary keys, StickKeys are a pain in games.

May 3, 2012 @ 5:13pm

Hah! Well this sure was.. different. Well done, hilarious little game even though the gameplay wasn't so great. Good thing you lose nothing when dying because some of the projectiles were next to impossible to dodge.

30dogs says ...
May 3, 2012 @ 6:51pm

By far the most LOL-inducing ludum dare game. Very well done. Bahahaha his haaands!!!

May 3, 2012 @ 10:43pm

haha funny! :)

johanp says ...
May 4, 2012 @ 6:19am

I had a fun time! Love the verse at the ending.

May 5, 2012 @ 4:27pm

The graphics were really bad, but some animations like waving arms and the humorous part made me think this game is good. :P

Cool mood and text!

dr_soda says ...
May 6, 2012 @ 2:38am

How delightfully goofy!

I don't know what to say that hasn't been said by others at this point. I think their feedback is pretty accurate.

SethR says ...

Came for the violence, stayed for the funny texts

derosa says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 2:03am

Haha, I laughed with the shaking arms :D

Jigxor says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 11:14am

That was hilarious! My favourite part of it was how every character was unique. Every phrase was very funny to read, and the ending was unexpectedly funny - the poem was awesome too!

Overall, great game, I sure did laugh :)

deepnight says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 8:31pm

Funny game :)

dustmyte says ...
May 9, 2012 @ 8:26am

Hahaha, perfect ending. You've got a great sense of humor. This was extremely fun to play!

May 9, 2012 @ 11:46am

What happened to his hand!?!? AHH!

DDRKirby(ISQ) says ...
May 9, 2012 @ 1:43pm

Better than it seemed at first glance, actually.

The ending was the best part xP Well, that and the squiggly arms everyone had.

Krisjet says ...
May 10, 2012 @ 3:52pm

This is the funniest game so far :D

Cute fun game of rampaging through the city. Fun references throughout

Knighty says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 9:41am

It's a city full of wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube men!

Sheep says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 10:57am

That.. was weird.

Dr.Pingu says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 2:53pm

@Evgis said it !

Nice work dude :)

jimmypaulin says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 7:38pm

Hahaha that was totally hilarious! Best ending to an game I've rated by a mile, congratulations! I like the art and how you tied the "lack of hands" into the story etc, really amusing. And a whole poem, all in 48hrs! Excellent work, 5 stars

hungyg says ...
May 11, 2012 @ 8:00pm

great text :D

Wyzfen says ...

Good humour and story, but annoying controls.

Impossible says ...
May 12, 2012 @ 8:06pm

Hah hilarious game.

tomhunt says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 7:37pm

The dialogue is nicely done and adds a lot of humor to the game.

SonnyBone says ...
May 13, 2012 @ 9:13pm

Pretty dang funny. Good job on the single screenshot on this page... really sets you up for the reveal. Nice job!

Tom 7 says ...
May 14, 2012 @ 12:00am

Wow, that took some surprising turns. :) The game itself is pretty repetitive, but I did laugh a few times, and I found my main character's graphics really funny too. Big ups for the verse-based credits. That was my favorite.
