raptor disasterby mes - Jam Entry
play as a velociraptor and defend your fellow dinosaurs against hordes of evolution ray toting aliens as you try to stay alive and keep things jurassic in this 2D survival action game!
do your best to disappoint the alien leader who believes he will be inheriting a fully evolved, modern world. show him that this is dinosaur territory and it's going to stay that way.
the main controls are explained in the game. if you have a gamepad, you should use it; it feels more natural. you can press enter / start to skip the intro scene. note that when you power up you can do a double jump (it also makes you run faster, do double damage, regenerate attacks faster, and survive one hit).
completed in 72 hours with our three man team:
Max Crane (mes) - code, design, art (lua / love, photoshop)
Ben Foden (benfoden) - art, design (wacom tablet, photoshop)
Scott Ashford - code (lua / love)
sadly we didn't have time for audio. i made a fair amount of progress on a song for it, so i will probably release a postjam version to remedy this.
the code ended up very hacky, so i don't recommend looking at it. but if you insist, download the .love file, rename it to .zip, and the source will be within.
we would love to hear your comments and any feedback. hope you enjoy.
This project was a blast to work on, and I highly recommend doing the jam to anybody who has some friends they can convince to do it with them.
P.S. Check out video of the art creation process here: http://twitch.tv/benfoden
coming soon: the enhanced version will have music and sfx, many gameplay tweaks, an easier difficulty setting, improved graphics, and some bug fixes.
