The Humans Are Here!

by Flyinpig5 - Compo Entry

Didn't get as much done as I would've liked, but my game "The Humans Are Here!" is now out!

The idea is that you are a God that has taken over the human world, but they have created portals into your realm to try and kill you. You know you cannot win, but how many of them can you take down with you?

Fire your icicles, summon your totems, shield yourself from suicide bombers! Take down the portals that spawn and the enemies around them, survive for as long as you can and KILL EVERYONE.

(Requires Java and a mouse, because Middle Click is a control)

Left click: Fire three icicles in front of you to do damage to enemies
Right click: Summon a totem that will fire lasers at enemies until destroyed. Enemies will prioritise these as targets.
Middle click: Shield 80% of all damage and heal while doing so, but only for a second. Time it well to thwart suicide bombers.

All enemies around a portal must be killed before the portal is able to be harmed. Each portal destroyed means a new one will spawn 10 seconds later, and it will have more health and spawn more enemies.

Collision detection for movement is non-existent and portals often spawn off the terrain. Could use some indicators here and there, but real life stuff got in the way for 4 or 5 hours this morning so I didn't get chance to add these :(

Enjoy!

Pretty fun, I like the particles. The game had good polish for a game jam. I played it for a while but couldn't figure out how to damage the portals though, shooting at it didn't seem to work.

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.
