Shuutshimiby awppy - Jam Entry
You need more Party-vision in your life. Get some today! Read how:
XNA 3.1: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15163
NET 3.5: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21 (You don't need this if running Windows 7)
For Windows 8 build: XNA 4.0: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20914
I suggest only downloading the Windows 8 build on Windows 8 machines, though it does work with Windows 7.
Extra note: Controls in brackets denote XBox360 controls. So, "C/(A)" means C on keyboard, A on XBox360. We really should have made that clear earlier...Tunnel vision, I guess.
Created in 24 hours! Updated now to the final gamejam version! 3-person jam, Shuutshimi (I'm not typing the umlaut, sorry) is a side-scrolling Cute-Em-Up with lots of hats and little patience for window shoppers.
It's a Wave and Upgrade cycle lasting 10 seconds each. But beware: not all upgrades are useful. Some are bad! But you've gotta pick one.
Oh, and there are hats. Quite a few, so collect them all*!
*You can only wear one hat at a time
PS: There's an extra little something if you earn a score of 5000 or more...
UPDATES (Source code does not receive these updates):
Build 15 - Fixed a bug where wave spawning did not account for enhanced time dilation
Build 16 - Fixed a bug where enemies could be shot while offscreen. This caused severe imbalance later in the game when using the laser. Also fixed a bug where Shop fish wasn't drawing accessories

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.
