Youdunnitby NightShadow0 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Reverse whodunnit where you play as the murderer, with a twist: you've been cursed into becoming a monster, but you don't know what kind of monster. To get away you'll need to learn what you are and place the blame on one of the other guests, all while keeping the curse in check.
"Beneath the surface" here refers to both the monster lurking inside you and the facade you need to put up to escape. I also used the secret bonus theme, study the Tome of Curses closely if you want to find it.
I managed to finish pretty much everything i set out to do, except the room backgrounds which were an unrealistic goal to begin with.
Thanks for playing!
*ActionScript 3 + Starling in FlashDevelop
*Artwork in Photoshop (i used a lot of references to make the silhouettes; not sure what the compo stance on that is, since in a way it's basing yourself off existing images, but they are my creations and i spent plenty of time on them)
*Music in SunVox
*Name database from http://www.outpost9.com/files/WordLists.html

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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.
