Hipster Fenrir

by HipsterFenrir - Jam Entry

Controls: swipe (mouse on windows/web, touch on android),
score is counted from your poop
beware of screen edger or eating poop


Hipster Fenrir is a tale of the mighty godeater super wolf Fenrir! Travel with the mighty wolf through vast on-screen space and devour whole civilizations and planets. But beware of your own poop!

Hipster Fenrir is the tale about the pointless chase for new achievements, while suffering defeat by old sh*t. Scoring mechanics is deliberately counter-intuitive, as it rewards not reckless chase and aggressive behavior, but survival! We find it interesting to create a conflict between the fundamental logic "eat and achieve more" that has been engraved into our gamer's instincts, yet here it play out short and puts players in a disadvantage. Can you beat your inner beast and play it cool and slow or will you give in and chase after the stars like the foolish Fenrir?
We're very curious about your feedback. :)

Interesting evolution of the classic Snake game. Mouse control was a bit hard. The Fenrir design is really cool!

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.
