Slam Jam Bakeryby DragonXVI - Compo Entry
UPDATE: I've uploaded bugfixed versions which should help with the mouse aiming at different resolutions since players were reporting this not working properly. Also added 'w' and 'up' as alternate jump buttons by default.
Sìle Nemsi, Legendary Pâtissier has a problem. A rival bakery has hired a fleet of mercenary warships to bomb her bakery into next week, and all she's got to defend herself is a virtually limitless supply of raspberry jam!
Hop on board the enemy craft & jam up the works, working your way to the ship's core, where with a careful application of EVEN MORE JAM, overload its systems to trigger a self destruct. Just make sure you escape in time for a daring, slow-motion leap to freedom!
Slam Jam Bakery is a bonkers action platformer suitable for all ages.
(Best played at 1024 x 768, think the mouse controls go a bit weird at other resolutions)
WASD/Arrowkeys/Left stick - Move Sile.
Space/Left shoulder button - Jump
Left Ctrl/Left mouse/Right shoulder button - Fire jam / Select menu option.
R - Respawn.
C - Toggle CRT Image effects.
- Master the Jam Thrust move - Simultaneously jump and shoot jam downwards to act as a sort've jammy jetpack!
- Destroy gears to make progress. This will disable doors, laser fields and generally make a mess.
- The Core is a giant laser cannon with a weakspot at its back. Don't get fried while trying to jam it up!
- You have infinite retries, but will die in one hit. Once the ship begins to explode though, you must make it out in one go or immediately fail!
- When the ship reaches the bakery, game over!
- Turret bullets are blocked by jam, use the jam as a shield!
- Level 2 *IS* possible. If done correctly, you'll have 1-2 seconds remaining when you escape! It's INCREDIBLY difficult though!
- Conveyor belts & some collision with edges is a little buggy. If in doubt, jump to dislodge yourself.
- Web version possibly coming later, but likely won't be Chrome friendly (Can't get WebGL builder to play ball)
- Aiming with the mouse is a bit odd on resolutions other than 1024x768. May get a fix in for this if I've time
- BFXR (http://www.bfxr.net/) Seriously this tool is awesome.
- Unity for being a pleasure to use (most of the time :p )
- J. Kyle Pittman for the inspiration for the YHTWTG/SWTG CRT-esque monitor effect (http://www.piratehearts.com/blog/)

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.
CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.
If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.
CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.
CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.
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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.
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.
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.
