Super George

by celanova - Jam Entry

Meet Super George! The greatest guy you'll ever meet! Gameplay is simple, WASD for movement and Spacebar to attack with your mighty sword! He may look like a normal guy, but I ensure you that he is here to save us from purple minions (that look like nightstands) and inconveniently placed turrets!

Kill all enemies to progress to the next wave! Hit heart boxes to get an extra heart!

Quite decent. Nothing particular standing out, though. Controls are smooth and the game plays nicely. Decent AI work as well. But, voice acting wasn't the strongest side, haha!

@SinistraGames Haha, yeah we used a few sleeping bags piled on each-other to make a nice acoustic environment. We added the voices in the last few hours, just for the cheesy feel. Glad you enjoyed it, it is our very first game! :)

I had fun with this game! The art and music really helped make it. The physics were a bit glitchy though - sometimes boxes would spaz out through the walls. Also, the demon-bunnies wouldn't jump when standing on health/another demon-bunny.
Overall I liked it though!

Pretty good. Funny audio and straight forward game play. Just a geeky unity tip: You might be able to have the gun bullets ignore collision with the dancing enemy. In script, just collide with the player. Just a thought.

@BoxedMeatRevolution
Thanks for the feedback! I also encountered the troubles with boxes going through walls, and the only guess we had was the fact that we had to use a totally separate script for the healthkit boxes, which had their collision set up oddly, apparently. Also, we really could never figure out why the enemies would totem pole up, haha. We were considering making them form up as a giant robot for a boss of some sort, but we ran out of time.

@Gread72 Yes, we had considered this, but due to time constraints and the fact that it's a bit funny when the enemies go flying (but don't take any damage, mind you!) we decided to keep it :P

Simple and fun, I liked it - especially the upbeat audio!

This game ended up being a lot more fun than I was expecting. I especially enjoyed being able to do silly things like this:

@C63industries Haha! We had a fun time messing about with the physics once we figured them out. The death animation was very enjoyable for our main coder, and we all laughed when we saw it.

The sword blocking damage and pushing things is a feature, not a bug! haha

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.
