Snowman vs Chesspiecesby HuntTheWumpus - Compo Entry
==== Snowman vs Chesspieces - "The Fight" - Generic Title Edition ====
A mixture of a card game (like Fluxx) and an action game like "the binding of isaac" where you decide how your next room will look like.
How to play:
1. You get a specific amount of cards (number can vary).
2. You have to select a specific amount of cards (number can vary). (select with space)
3. Start the round. All previously selected cards are now in effect. This can be:
- Effects on the enemies, the weapons or you
- New goals
- Other number of cards to draw/play
4. Survive the round!
What is the goal? You decide! There are 5 possible goals in the game, which are activated by selecting the corresponding card. But the goal can change every round! (depending on your cards)
WSAD - movement
arrow keys - shooting
space - selecting stuff
return - accepting stuff
m - mute music
n - mute sounds

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.
