by AndrejsKlavins - Jam Entry

Miscreations is a prototype game for Garage48 2014 Riga event. It is an experimental roguelike game in which you are a clean-up guy who fight a procedurally generated boss.
The boss consists of five parts, and currently Miscreations has 4 sets of parts which allows to generate 1024 unique bosses.

This is an early prototype of the game which could be developed further into a more serious product.

Can't seem to play this. The web link is just a white screen for me and the windows link just takes me back to this page.

Procedurally generated boss battles. Cool idea. It's really hard and it'll be hard to balance the difficulty with randomly generated bosses.

For controls I wasn't a fan of using the mouse to shoot at only 90 degree angles. I feel like if I'm shooting 90 degree angles I should be able to use keys, and if I have to use the mouse, I should be able to shoot at an angle.

Good idea, fun game, I'm not a fan of mouse controls for this, WASD and Arrow Keys would have been better I feel. I like the random creations that can occur, very bizarre! I could only get as far as round three though :D
One kinda big problem is, when you kill a boss your guy is frozen until you click 'next' - but enemy missiles and bullets still can harm you during this time, very unfair!


bug I found: I held up key, the guy walked to the wall at the top, seemed to bounce off it, I tried again and just kept holding up key and... he then bounced all the way off the bottom of the screen where he is stuck to this day :(
I think this is true of all directions, but I only tested it with the top wall.

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.
