by Pulsartronic - Jam Entry

You're travelling with your pet Willy through space in an interestellar spaceship, when suddenly, Willy cries because he is very hungry. You're near to Earth and you decide to land there and feed your buddy.

Kill as many people as possible and throw them into the Willy's mouth to feed him.

Be careful with the police and kill them all too, because if they catch you, you will be jailed and no one will feed your pet ....

How to play:

You need to feed your buddy-pet with 30 human-dead-bodies
You have to use this controls :

Left click over the ground to move
W : Drive hit. (Recommended, easier)
E : Backhand hit.
Q : Grab / Throw ( You only can throw the body once you grabbed it )
Android: Virtual joystick and visual buttons

As important as feeding your pet is hitting with a good timing when a human police is chasing you... a little mistake could become a giant disaster...

UPDATES:
Some bug fixes were added and police's constant whistling reduced :D

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE COPS CAN'T BE THROWN because you could stay near your pet waiting for the food coming to you

Very nice concept art and physics and I like how you stayed true to the theme.
However the police's constant whistling is a bit annoying.

Ah, the folly of 3D. Squishy hitboxes, floaty aniamtions, dangerously hard to control, and very very slllllooooowwww.

Speed it up a bit and let me actually control the guy instead of clicking.

Good fun! Funny concept and well executed. Police whistles got a bit annoying towards the end. My only real complaint is that I couldn't feed my pet the police :)

Ellian says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:18am

Ahah, I didn't know what to expect but this is pretty fun. The goal is pretty high considering the pacing, but still, that was refreshing. Love those ragdoll physics.

I can honestly say this is the best game I have plaed so far.
There is everything: funny story, beautifull graphics, interesting gameplay.
And finally:
Amazing animations
Everything together makes it really fun and playable game.

This game works well and the still art is very cool. To me the mindless violence was a little too much but well executed nonetheless.

I enjoyed the ragdoll effect on the humans, nice touch.

Jaenis says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:39pm

Great graphics and cool execution!
Gets a bit repetitive though, maybe different ways to attack (a gun perhaps) would make it more diverse?

Pulsartronic says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:47pm

Yes Jaenis :) ... the time is a bad guy ... if we had more days, we would do it funnier :D ...
thanks to all of you

Dec 10, 2014 @ 12:58am

Neat game. Really liked the visual style. A bit frustrating to get close to winning just to get killed by a cop in one hit, but fun game anyways. Nicely done. :)

Code Medicine says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:39am

This is one of the better ones I have seen in the jam. The visuals are great, and I loved the cop dragging you away when you died. It was a little difficult to hit and move at the same time. Really impressive guys, nice work.

Completely wtf! Good laughing while knocking down pedestrian and cops with my gigantic alien morgenstern. Solid entry. Even if it's not in an original way, the theme is respected. Solid entry!

FergusonTV says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:26pm

Your game is our favorite for now ! The graphics are great, the animations are great, the ragdolls are fantastic.
The gameplay is simple and fun, yet challenging (the cops keep stopping me in my rampage before I reach 30 :( ).
The only thing we do not love is the title, which does not pay respect of the uniqueness of your game.

This is really amazing and very polished and we love it ! You can count on us playing it if you iterate on this in the near future.

Dec 10, 2014 @ 6:41pm

Very cool animations and when you get busted, that's hilarious. LOL it's awesome, we laughed a lot at the end. :D Well done.

yikes - very cool idea - i loved feeding the humans to the monsters - nice touch

BretHudson says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:54am

Hitting people is so satisfying! Both attacks feel great, and it's hilarious throwing people through the air and watching your creature catch them with its big tongue. I ended up liking the controls on Android more than the ones on PC. :) Fantastic entry.

Boracho says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 4:15pm

Fun game. The movement could use a teensy bit of tweaking, but other than that solid effort all around.

WoW, Graphics and Animations are very well done. Awesome entry for a jam!

Dec 14, 2014 @ 2:21am

The art created for this is absolutely amazing. If you managed to create all of those splash screens, all of those models, all of those animations, etc, JUST during the weekend? Mad, mad ability here. Of all the LD games I've played thusfar that fall under the "assault people & evade the madness that ensues" genre, this has definitely been the best.

I do agree with some previous comments that the hit collision is a bit iffy. I found myself swinging my weapon at people while fairly close, and it didn't make contact. The police also had some really long-reaching range, and even when I felt I was really far away from them, I still got hit. It seemed as though the weapon was a bit sluggish? The alien guy wasn't necessarily hard to control, though, I could see why someone might want WASD or joystick controls rather than point-and-click controls.

Overall, this was a real gem. I loved the addition of crazy drivers -- more obstacles integrated with the gameplay like this could make later potential levels really challenging, even with the level of difficulty it's currently at.

LegacyCrono says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 2:34am

Hmm, I didn't understand what's the use of the backhand hit. Not a big fan of the indirect control, but I understand it won't work for mobile otherwise. The artwork is pretty damn good! Nice work!

Dec 14, 2014 @ 2:38am

Polished entry with great graphics. Liked playing but think it would have been better if it started slower with having to only collect a few people to throw into the alien. Then difficulty increasing and more people to collect.

spotco says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 5:29am

Really impressive 3d graphics and satisfying "hit" mechanic. Love the hats flying :)

loopinlouie says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 7:18am

Awesome game! The concept and the gameplay are very unique and fun. The entire game feels very polished and has a strong theme that is reinforced by every element. I also always had the sense that next time I would make it to 30, which kept me playing over and over and over. Dying definitely felt like it was my fault, usually because I would swing too early, giving the cop the chance to counter-attack. That is what kept me going, thinking next time I won't make the same mistake. The controls felt very responsive and intuitive.

I played the post mortem version too, and despite being harder with cars also flying at you, it mixes up the gameplay a lot. The cars also make for some pretty hilarious situations. I even had a car save me from a cop one time. The funniest one was where a car must have hit a building off screen and then it came flying back into the screen sliding on its top, but it was still plowing through the pedestrians. Even without the cars though, very solid game.

loopinlouie says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 7:22am

oh forgot to mention one thing: I wish I could also throw the cops into the mouth of the bigger alien. But maybe he doesn't like bacon?

loopinlouie says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 7:51am

Ah ok, then the cops would just bring the "food" to you, breaking the gameplay. I just had a strong urge to try to do it. Maybe it would be quite funny if you tried to feed the cops to it, and it spit them back out. That way it feels like you CAN do it, but you realize you cannot win that way.

Murchurl says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 9:10am

Quite a fun game, controls felt funky though. I loved how the police man just runs off with your body lol. Great job the graphics were amazing!

PIXEL^3 says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 9:24am

The game had a nice dark humor about it and it worked well. Smacking around people while a little difficult was still easy enough to have fun with, the cops though are a little hard to deal with. The addition of the car in the postmortem version was great because I could let it hit people for me and let me deal with the cops. Sometimes though I'd pick up a person, not noticing a cop, and be stuck with no option but to throw the person at the cop which did nothing strangely. That would be something cool to add in the game later. But I think this would make a nice mobile/browser game where people can play it in short 5 minute burst.

Stunning graphics, cool gameplay. It gets some time to understand controls but after a while its ok. I didnt get the difference between the 2 attacks.

Overall, good work!

Very good art , I really liked it , thank you advised)

nesis says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 2:39pm

Loved the game! I enjoyed finding out that you can somewhat cancel out of doing attacks / throws to save time, which is the kind of speedrun trick I like to find in games. The ragdoll physics were pretty funny, too. One suggestion I would have is adding a little more variation to how the humans react to seeing other humans being hit (eg, freaking out and standing on the spot, and perhaps running and hiding instead of completely leaving).

Pulsartronic says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 3:41pm

nesis, that's a good tip!! I like how it looks on my imagination!!. Thanks a lot :)

Very good, perfect art and very funny game.

badlydrawnrod says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 6:43pm

Very funny indeed. I think I killed more people by clubbing them to death than by feeding them to Willy, but that's just my general ineptitude.

Hellequin says ...

Who doesn't love to eat people? :) Really fun game

Snicklodocus says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 11:08pm

Love the art, especially the title and results screens. I think the game would handle better with simple WASD movement and using the mouse to attack. The loading time was very long - I think a downloadable version might have suited this better. Besides those nitpicks, I had fun with this. Great job!

pkenney says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 11:45pm

Very slick production! Great graphics assets and animations, cool perspective, and a nice topic.

If I had to suggest an improvement, I would say there's an imbalance between the time it takes to gather 30 people vs the margin of error with the cop. He one-shots you and it's a complete do-over. Killing him is easy, true, but just a small mistake in timing and you're done. The punishment seems out of proportion to the crime.

For that reason I never reached the end, which was a shame. I'm very curious what happens when I feed that strange monster enough humans!

Dec 15, 2014 @ 9:36am

Fun game, got a bit of dull in the end but that's okay! Would've loved to have seen some more interesting enemies than the cops (: Furthermore a cool style. Keep it up!

GrabenGroup says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 3:46pm

Nice :D very cool Graphics and also nice sound! Good work! But I don't like these mouse controls for walking... touch-thing...

RyanNielson says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 4:00pm

Cool little game, I think it has great potential with a bit of polish. I'd like to see more diablo-like controls with clicking to attack and holding the mouse button to move. I think this would fix all the problems I have with it feel stiff. Great start though.

Dietrich Epp says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 6:47pm

Fun! It took me a little while to figure out some things (you can't pick up police, you have to throw bodies to the monster), but I definitely enjoyed it.

Dec 16, 2014 @ 6:18am

Nice produced. Looks really good but animations blending is a bit jankey. Combat feels satisfying, both attacks feel kind of similar, maybe have a running attack. Maybe some of the pedestrians can choose to fight back when see you kill someone rather then run away.

Zi says ...
Dec 16, 2014 @ 8:15am

LOL! Simple and satisfying. Highly polished. Wish you could run and hit at the same time though!

Lovelock says ...
Dec 16, 2014 @ 8:19am

Hahaha. This was so hilarious. I can't stop laughing. Bonus points for making it in 3D as well. Smashing pedestrians and cops as an alien is absolutely charming. Throwing the bodies nearly killed me lol. I tip my hat.

Nick Weihs says ...
Dec 16, 2014 @ 8:35am

The animations in the game were delicious. The ragdolls looked great, the idle animation was hilarious and I was impressed that you got the tongue attaching to the corpses as the flew threw the air. The gameplay was simple but fun, and again I think the animations added a lot here to make the game challenging. The attacks were weighty and had a wind up to them so it was fun to try and time your hits. The challenge ramp up was pretty good up until around 25 corpses eaten, at which point it became nearly impossible. The spawn rate on the cops was far too high and the fact that killing a cop made the pedestrians run away added even more to the difficulty. If you were able to pick up cops, it would fix this issue, but that might ruin the difficulty curve (worth an experiment). I feel like the cars in the post-compo version were funny, but took away from the tightness of the game as a whole since you would unpredictably die to them quite often. The music was fun and created a appropriate atmosphere for the game, i.e. fun and weird. And the art style, though simple worked really well and was surprisingly nice to look at. Really fun, even though I never got to the awesome win screen. Thanks for making this game!

Great presentation. Would like to see more complexity in the game.

barryrowe says ...
Dec 17, 2014 @ 12:27am

This looks, and sounds great. The controls are little awkward, and some of the attacks are odd. I only played the original version to keep the rating fair. The concept art is amazing. Good entry.

Wertle says ...
Dec 17, 2014 @ 8:45pm

Nice work on a 3D jam game! I like how the humor had a sort of dark edge to it, but still kept an overall light and silly premise. The animations looked great but were quite slow on the actionable parts like the swinging, etc, that made it hard to predict. It was a little confusing that it was click-to-move, you may want to consider looking at various RTS games to see how they reinforce that style of movement with feedback. Also when you click too close to a dead body, you don't move at all, which can get confusing. Really nice job!

Valandre says ...
Dec 19, 2014 @ 1:46pm

Very nice and fun concept!

Riocide says ...
Dec 20, 2014 @ 8:30am

WAyyyy too hard! fun concept but the police is too fast and comes to often

Dec 20, 2014 @ 11:24am

Really crazy entry! I only got to 7/30 in 5 attempts. Sometimes the cars aren't predictable or evitable even if you know where they're going and you die unfairly :'(

Good job anyway!

gameattack says ...
Dec 21, 2014 @ 10:49pm

Fun and quite addicting. I tried really hard to beat the game but in vain. Best score: 29.

2HitAdam says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 9:54am

Cool game, landing hits felt really meaty and brutal! I feel like this kind of game would really benefit from being free roaming though, the click to move/key to attack feels kind of weird and clunky, not too responsive. Ragdoll was pretty funny though, overall good job :)
