I.M.M.U.N.E - Infection Minimizing Monocyte Under Natrual Edict

by Rikkter Games - Jam Entry

Here is our second entry for Ludum Dare! And we actually had our artist this time huzzah!

Though this time it seems like we didn't get as much completed as we wanted too unlike last time. This is as much as we could crank out in the allotted time and we wouldn't be able to work on it further, school and such, so there isn't any animations for the enemies/white blood cells or any combat sound and only three levels, which another reason for there being only three levels is that the way we built them was really resource intensive and time consuming. But in our opinion it's a pretty decent prototype of what it would end up being.

We hope you all like this game and please tell us your opinions on it because we are actually planning on working on this game further.

Also not completely sure how well the linux/mac version is seeing as I have no way to test them. So if those seem to be messing up try the web browser version.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~About the Game~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In I.M.M.U.N.E you take control of a highly acclaimed team of four monocytes called Infection Minimizing Monocytes Under Natural Edict trying to eliminate all the viruses that are taking control of your hosts immune system. You must carefully plan out their attack and catch the viruses off guard in order to take back control.

Controls and how to play the game are in the How To Play section on the main menu.

Control was a little hard

The next button in how-to play mode, put in the right side,why we can't see the enemies in the planning phase? viewing them make more interesting, less random.
Another UI suggestion: put the WASD tip all the time in screen or a minimap.

Very neat idea. I found the control scheme for the monocytes a bit hard to learn. Even when I thought I had set them up correctly, sometimes they didn't do what I planned for them. Loved the music, and the concept.

Good turn base game.

It's simply too confusing! The "How to Play" lacks a good explanation, the main gameplay is not clear enough and the graphics/design part could be a lot better.

Looks more like a "conceptual engine" than a actual game.

Neat game. I liked the plan and then play aspect. It would have been nice if the viruses start location was randomized though as it always seemed to be in the same place.

The concept is nice but it lacks of some good previous explanation.

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.
