We Just Got Serious

by hansolo - Jam Entry

Humankind was extinct after
the nuclear war...

But earth was not alone.
Thanks to radioactive
pollution, a new thinking
specie is evolved, which
call themselves as Poopkind.

New stories on earth was
about to be written...

* W,A,S,D to move
* Mouse to buy upgrades

#Eat smaller foes to get bigger, collect radioactivity to buy upgrades.
#As Poops move they are shrinking due to the friction.
#Only first 2 mutations are buyable. Others are not added yet.

- First mutation is Thorns Upgrade, giving player an armor, damages enemy for 4 kg size when collided. 5 radioactivity cost
- Second mutation is Wings Upgrade, giving player pseudo-wings, increasing speed by 30%. 5 radioactivity cost.


This is my first Ludum Dare, hope you like the game.

Good concept and implementation, but the mass loss to friction is a bit excessive in my opinion.

Yea, I should've made someone test my game in developement but I didn't. I get feedbacks signaling game difficulty is a little hard. Thank you for comment :)

I wouldn't spawn enemies in the players sight, better a little bit outside of it and with a movement vector towards the player. It was also a little hard.

Fast mass loss makes it a bit hard, so one strategy would be to just wait for a small enemy to spawn near you and collect him, but that takes away the fun.

121seconds and 17kg :)

I liked playing the game. It reminded me of EVO search for eden. When you start the game is very hard and the more you evolve, the easier it gets. I managed to get a winged-spiked poop and being the biggest one felt satisfying and funny.

But as said the difficulty could be lowered a bit (in order to see all the evolutions in a run).

Good job

definitely needs some tweaks, but not a bad effort.

I'm going to be nice because it's your first Ludum Dare.
BUT COME ON! This was a Jam! And the "Poop" look like .GIFs than models. Try harder next time.

Maybe the poop should leave streaks . . .

ah, great opening picture. When playing I was surprised when I suddenly noticed I got smaller when moving. Made it a bit hard to evolve. Good effort though

Good effort and great start. Yes, some tweaks needed but who doesn't need to after such a short time to complete, especially the first time!

Funny, kinda hard, but has great potential. Nice graphics... :)
