Freak Craft

by KEFIR - Compo Entry

Build a monster. Build a very scary monster in order to scare people to death and get their money. To build even more scary monster...

Okay.. I really ashamed with this "game". It sucks. So feel free to put the lowest rates on it :)

The idea is sound, but is there much gameplay here? Maybe I did not understand it but is there any controls or ways to affect the world?

Am I missing something. I never get passed pressing the Terrorize button. How do you get to the second thumbnail with the monster in the streets. I wanna terrorize darn it :)

Love the concept. Always cool to be able to customize your character. Unfortunately I couldn't do much once I was "scaring people," and after my first run, I didn't have the funds to run my base monster again. A couple tweaks and you could have a great game with this.

The 'Build-your-monster' system, where the efficiency of the monster lies in how scary it is, it great! I loved the game and the art adds a funny tone to it! A good Jam game!

Concept is great, but didn't feel like there was much 'game' here, just being able to move the monster up and down to avoid attacks from enemies would have been enough.

Nice concept. I know you probably ran out of time for this. I'm not sure if I was supposed to be invisible during terrorizing, or if there is anything you can do during it, but it has potential!

@Pickens Inc.
oh, you probably should play fullscreen or click "web" link.. window size is too small here.
Anyways don't waste your time :(

Building a monster is an appealing idea. And parallax scrolling is always good. As for the overall gameplay... well... I think you've summed it up in your description.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.
