The Result

by Dyn - Compo Entry

Imagine that fate has awarded you with the ability to create worlds using the power of thought. But what if it took back the ability to see the result of these actions?

About:
This small philosophy game is about the price and the result. Each game lasts 60 seconds.
Press left mouse button or touch to find special zones of creation. You will see blue particles. After 60 second you will see final screen.

This "creation zones" aren't random and don't depend on white boxes! These boxes just trying to confuse you.

The main idea of the game is that you should create without actually see what you're doing.


Objects you can create, find, move in the Compo version:
- planet
- 2 cat-cows
- house
- 2 mountains
- ufo
- snowman
- fence
- different lights

Tools: Unity, Blender, Fruity loops.

Changes in postLD version:
- added score
- added intro music
- few fixes in models

I played few times before understand how my clicks affects the result. Yes, it's all about blue parcticles and sound feedback. Not easy. My best result is half of house. But I will try more to reach result like on screenshots.

Great atmosphere. Kinda vague, though. First time through I didn't even realize I was playing yet. Second time, I got me a nice snowman, though. :)

I like it, but it is hard to understand if you are doing something right. Blue particles for the win! Nice mood by the way

Thanks for comments!

MaesK, there is nothing right or wrong in this game. :) It can be just different.

Great look and music. Not sure about the mechanics, but I'm sure that's not what you're going for anyway. Nice work.

Agree with most of the commentators - nice music and general ambience. But mechanics are - different. Nice game nevertheless.

Really cool concept. Even though I didn't get a feel for how to actually create. I just clicked randomly and on the boxes, and it felt like a 50/50 chance of it turning blue.

I really see this as a cool way to make procedurally generated levels in games interactive though.

very vague; Does not looks like a game at all; Nice atmosphere; Not intuitive;

I hope the text is tounge-in-cheek, because I found it rather amusing. Could use more feedback if you are doing it right. Nice concept!

I had considered something like this might be interesting with the theme (doing actions 'off screen') but I had pretty much no idea what was going on the whole time!

Very creative idea and hypnotic to play, kept me busy for a while!

Interesting! It feels like you're trying too hard to be artsy though, which isn't always a bad thing.

Interesting take on the theme - everything on one screen and to draw something off-screen. Took a few goes to understand what the sounds meant.

Promising concept. Not sure exactly what I was doing until my second playthrough though.

Hi there. Interesting idea. Made me think of Solaris in first part. Got house with field fences and a cow-like, maybe a moon in background. Like the sounds and particles. Frustrating to not get to run around in the created world... ;( Good job!

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. 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.
