Minimalist Art Gallery

by speciesUnknown - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You must collect minimalist creatures to place in your art gallery. Don't get eaten by the monsters. Throw potatoes at them (Potatoes are a minimalist staple foodstuff)

shift to run
wasd to move around
arrow keys to look
space to lob a potato

Sorry for the poor in-game tutorials, I ran out of time before I could make some less annoying ones.

This game uses WebGL which is experimental - it works best in chrome, and should work in firefox. Forget about IE.

Specifically, it uses the THREE.js framework which has proven itself a mighty tool for this kind of thing.

I couldn't run, but I chased a cow into a yellow void.

Controls a bit awkward, the y-aiming felt inverted. Intentional? Or just me?
Good effort, and impressive for webGL but execution could use some polish. Chased a chicken into a black void (off world map?), never able to hit it. Then I was lost in the black.
Also the potato looked more like a chocolate chip cookie :)

I'm really not sure if I understood how the game is supposed to be played, or if I was doing it entirely wrong.

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.
