The Transcendence Experiment

by The V Man - 48 Hour Compo Entry

WASD or Arrow Keys to Move
F to Attack
E to Interact

- There's no GUI!
- For a lack of GameOver screen, if you die, the game quits
- The things you kill will disappear after a few seconds
- You have to use the Interact key (E) with the Logic Bomb

Notes on the Source:
- I used 2DToolkit, which is a licenced product and can't be distributed. As such, don't expect the Unity project to run.

Does it end after he gets ready to load you in again? Also, the sprites for the main guys are great!

Thanks! That actually is the end. The standalone version closes automatically, but the web player just sits there for lack of a game over screen.

It's okay that your source code can't be run directly, but you really should include builds for systems besides Windows for download, then. Linux players can't use the web player at all, and some Mac users can't use the web player in its current version, either.

Nice, short game (unless I missed something). The character art is fairly well done. Tried both versions--I was also confused with the web version just sitting there.

Like the art! The story is neat too.

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 ( 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.
