Christmas Punch!

by laxeot - Compo Entry

If you were a tree would you protect your own kind? Your objective is simple... kill anyone who tries to buy a tree. Godspeed. Five trees, unlimited customers, and one brave tree (that's you!)

Jesus is back, and he's not crucifuckin' around.

There is a bug that makes it so you can't punch an enemy while they're standing in front of a tree. If you punch the enemy from the side, or from any angle that does not have the tree behind the enemy, it will work just fine.

WASD - Move
Space - Jump
LMB - Punch Left
RMB - Punch Right
E - Water plants
ESC - Free mouse

This is crazy! Too bad the punching doesnt feel right. Nice music and sound!

Haha, what an amusing concept. I liked the music a lot as well. The punch collisions were rather broken, though.

@Drtizzle @Lawls @ChronusZ
Yup, known glitch. When you punch an enemy who is standing in front of a tree, it thinks you're punching a tree. Working on that c:

I'm ridiculously confused, but I enjoy being there.

And that video was awesome.

Unfortunately in Chrome my mouse wouldn't stay in the Unity plugin window so I wasn't able to really do much. What does the water do?

I'm not quite sure what I just played but I think I liked it.

@MiniBobbo the water will take down the trees percentage by 50% ^^

@cxsquared thanks i think!

Hahaha really funny. Also whoever came up with that tagline, especially the pun "crucifuckin' " deserves a pat on the back. Controls were kind of wonky, but mostly quite fun. nice job!

This game made my laugh. Random and a bit glitchy, but fun stuff none the less.

Amazing graphics and audio for 48h. The controls still need some work but it was funny nonetheless

kinda difficult to punch dudes. Also, I'm not sure how to get more water, or if I can get more water.

laxeot says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:17am

@Catwheel The punching is a bit broken, and water comes every three minutes ^^

Fun game, very funny!

Did you make all these assets in 48 hours? Pretty impressive if so, but I get the feeling they might be from the asset store or somewhere else (I think I heard the X-Files theme in there)? I hate to be a jerk but you're not supposed to do that for Compo entries -- it's okay for Jam entries. The rules are here:

Tended to get stuck on dead bodies. Also Jesus has gone super tree-huggery since last time he was around...

Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:38am

Soundrack creates great mood for this game)) Collidion detection appeared buggy, but still its fun))

Soooo... Where is LD theme there?
Also, I don't really know why people find these game funny.
There better examples in jam, that funnier and don't have such a banal humor
So yeah

I had no idea what to expect. And it wasn't at all what I expected, lol. A few bugs but solid entry for ld.

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.
