Unnamed Game

by Thinkofdeath - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Didn't get time to finish it but I decided to submit it anyway. The idea was to get to city minimizing the damage you do and take along the way. I think I made the game too complex for me which caused me to run out of time.

Would have rated higher but the first rat battle was taking forever. Turn based is cool but the battles should be a lot quicker, especially the first one.

The pixel art graphics are pretty neat, though the setting (a dirty bunch of shacks in the desert, it seems) are rather ugly. Not that an area has to be nice, mind, but it's just that the grays, browns, and dull greens aren't a very pleasant palette.

That's not a major problem, though. A bigger problem is that there's almost no game here. It's a Pokemon clone in the most superficial and dull sense. Battles are waaaaaay too long, sapping any fun that may have come from winning because it's just so much tedious button-mashing busywork.

Also, the text is too big for the text boxes, with many words being awkwardly cut off. The text could have been reduced 4 points or so to require less button-pressing to skip the text.

Overall, there's just not much of a game here, I'm sorry to say. The timelapse was very interesting to watch, though!

I like where you were heading with this and I like the sprite set and colors.

Can see where you're aiming with this, couldn't find a way to interact with anything... X for bag/beast menu didn't seem to offer any more - wasn't obvious how to do more

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
