Static Encounter

by LordKawaii - Jam Entry

The idea was to make a reverse JRPG random encounter where you play a party of monsters that the "Hero" has stumbled upon. I was unable to do all I wanted within the time limit, but given that this is my first Jam and I was using a new engine and language I had never touched before I'm pretty happy with the results.

This game was made using Loom Turbo.
Slime sprites by Magdalen Rose.
Music Crunk Knight by Kevin McClaud.
Everything else by me. :b

I didn't read the description and at first I thought I play as a hero and was quite surprised that it's so easy to slay these beasts.
But it was even more surprising to lose.\

A nice twist of events! Takes a bit of strategy to take the hero down. Definitely a good base to work off of. I can see a JRPG about enemies being built off this framework.

Not bad, but maybe a bit too simple.

interesting idea, even after reading your description I kept looking at the human thinking it was me, goes to show how mechanical we are with games :D hah

Nice little thing. Shame it's so easy and so short. :)

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.
