Heroes in Tray

by Atridas - Jam Entry

Hello to the first ever hero manager!!!!!

Code/Design - Isaac "Atridas" Serrano
Art - Ada Ferran

In this game you coach a party of heroes. You train them, you sent them to missions... In the end is about improving them and unravel a great quest!


Please note that the multi-platform-ness of this game is limited. ATM it supports windows with OpenGL 3.3 or newer :-(

Also, I have a rather empty webpage here: http://atridas87.cat/LD31/index.html

Looks like a cool concept but the lack on instructions and slightly annoying sound effects had me close it before I got to the meat of the gameplay (I think).

I like the concept, but the game is waaaay to slow. I mean, what's the point of making a training take 5 minutes if there's no overall time limit?

You really need to give the player, some notion about how the game's systems and maths work. Right now, it's impossible to make an informed decision.

Not so easy as I expected xD

You should add a mute option, because the music can be quite annoying on the run. Lika aslakhol, I get tired quite fast because of the lack of instructions, which is sad considering it could have been fun. The game has some good concept and (too?) deep mechanics that make it interesting, but you should definitely work harder on UX. Keep practicing!

This game looks really fun, but I got tired of figuring out what to really do. I love the style of the graphics and the audio. Also very innovative.

Could not run (program ceases functioning immediately on startup). Using Win7 and OpenGL 4.0.0.

It's a cool concept! It reminds me a bit of the missions you can send your garrison followers on in the latest WoW xpac. In its current incarnation it's not super fun - seems like there's a lot of waiting. Reading the text can be interesting but wears out pretty quickly. I think some sprites showing the simulated battle would be a really awesome addition. Some sound effects and a change of music while on mission would be a nice touch as well. I was able to figure out some of how the game worked mechanically on my own, but for something like this a tutorial or some additional instructions would go a long way. Overall good job, though!

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.
