Thunder Plays

by Evilion - Compo Entry

A little (not)game about the time I met ghosts in the storm and played with them.

WASD (or ZQSD) + Mouse to wander.
UP/DOWN Arrows to play Pong.

Chrome labels the download for this "malicious" and blocks it. Um?

Terrain is absolutely awesome! Can you please give some hints on how you achieved this look? I didn't find the answer in source...

@mahalis Hm maybe it's because it's uploaded in dropbox? I'll try to reupload the .zip on mediafire. Anyway nothing malicious in it ahah

@dustyroom In a Unity Terrain, I modify the heights at runtime. Look at the CreuseTerrain function in the TerrainScript (sorry I'm a bad programmer, I code half in french and almost never comment xD)

Not sure if I can say much about the gameplay... But those graphics are amazing. Good use of sounds, too. Theme... Maybe? Not entirely sure really.
You're making this difficult to rate. ^^''

This was really entertaining, but I gotta take off points for lack of gameplay Somewhere, right? Maybe I should just judge the stuff that was good for sure and leave the other things on n/a...

@dustyroom Oh ok, well If you're talkin about the ground aspect, it's nothing very technical, I just spent a lot of time tweaking the values of the colors and the effects to reach this aspect but it's just the Unity Transparent/Specular material.

@Iak No you're right, it clearly lacks of gameplay. I wanted to add actual interactions, but ended up running out of time. That's why I prefer to call it an experience or a poem. I'm not gonna tell you how to rate the games, it doesn't matter that much anyway, but if you tell me you found it interesting or had a good time, I consider it as a success! Thank you for the feebacks!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
