Demon Shanker 2

by demonshanker2 - Jam Entry

This is no ordinary hobo, his name is Demon Shanker! Only Demon Shanker can see demons for what they truly are. Take a swig to activate vodka vision and let the shankin' begin. Keep on shankin' until you run out of vodka but be careful, shankin' too many humans may draw attention to yourself...

WASD - Movement
E - Activate vodka vision
SPACE - Shank

Activating vodka vision will reveal what nearby patrons are hiding beneath the surface. Will you only shank identified demons or will you roll the dice? If you shank an unidentified demon you will still get the points for it. Shankin' humans will detract points.

Fun for a while, but I ended up taking swigs and not revealing anyone. Does it only reveal people who are on the screen at the time?

About a quarter of the patrons should be demons, might be a bug that I will need to look into.

It was fun! Although getting pushed by those people was a little bit annoying at times. Are the (revealed) demons programmed to stay inside of the crowd? Because it totally seemed like it when I played.
Anyway, nice game!

Doesn't seem to want to load right now, which stinks, because this looks interesting. Hopefully it comes back up.

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.


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.
