Shit Ahead

by kristof - Jam Entry

UPDATE: We now have a Windows version of our game. Sadly it seems to be a bit shaky on some computers. Let us know of any problems you might run into! (28.08.2014)

It's a game about spreading culture as a world-connecting motive.

C++, SDL2, OpenGL

A game by:
Philip Lammert (Illustration)
Nicolas Neteler (Sound)
Kristof Niederholtmeyer (Code)
Special Thanks to Anna-Maria Daschner!

Thanks for Playing!

Loved the graphics (the icon most of all) and the play was responsive and straight forward. Nice jam entry....

When I start the game I see the story and once it gets to the action there is just a black screen with the controls on screen.
I'm running Windows 7 64-Bit. If I can help with testing the windows version poke me on twitter. I would love to be able to play the game.

Very nice!
Stage 3 is hard :(
It is hard to run away from bullets, as the camera moves pretty violently if you go backwards.

Can't get out of controls screen. When I press the arrow or any of the keys nothing happens except for explosion sounds. Win 8.

Runs fine on my Windows 7 64-bit computer. The art style is very good and the music and sounds are well done. Nice and challenging. I don't know if my grenades were useful, but I eventually got good at bullet dodging.

Why wouldn't these aliens so kindly wear shit on the head? :/
Nice game overall :D
The music and sfx were well done, the art is really nice, the only thing I didn't like was not being able to shoot and walk backwards, but that wasn't a big problem.

The graphics were really charming, the music was good and action-y, and the gameplay was fast-paced so it didn't matter much that it was hard to stay alive through the whole thing. Great job! : )

Ha, this is awesome. Fun little story and solid, simple gameplay :) Graphics, music and sound was all great.

I think the story would have been great if you were completely went in it (Anime/manga style). Sadly here i'm not in this kind of humor. But i like the idea of planets who wants to connect themselves but have different cultures.
The gameplay is cool, but frustrating.
Love the music !

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.
