Sir Pantless

by sgehlich - Compo Entry

Sir Pantless has lost his jobs AND his pants. What a bummer! Now he has to crawl through a dungeon guarded by monsters and collect gold to earn some money. You control the monsters, but only one at once. Catch Sir Pantless and protect your gold.

But be careful: He can kill your monsters while you're not controlling them. Also, his farts smell like rotten eggs and they can kill your monsters as well.

Stuff I used:

- Atom for the code
- JavaScript (ES6) because web browsers rock
- PIXI.js for the graphics
- Howler.js for the sound
- Photoshop for pixel stuff
- Bitwig for cutting the sound stuff
- Red Bull for my brain

Love the humour. Love the concept. Love the reversed pac man concept. Easy but a lot of fun.

Ingenious! Very well done, all the aspects were pretty much spot on. Also +1 for a pantless hero.

Very nice project guys, i really love it, please check our game too and if you liked it give us a vote. Look for Road to hell and enjoy.

Fun reverse pacman. That guy needs to see a doctor about his flatulence that color doesn't look healthy and I think it even killed a man.

It was a little tough switching between monsters, maybe 1-4 as hotkeys could be easier?

The story alone was worth the asking price (I'm not being ironic because it was free btw), this was hilarious! No pants worn during the making? You have a devious streak there. The actual gameplay was challenging - the, er, farts were very difficult to see for me and I kept dying right when I thought I had sir pantless in my grasp. You clearly took great inspiration for the theme and created anti-paceman, not seen this before so nice work! This game is not pants.

It seems a bit wonky, as Sir Pantless just randomly stops every so often.

I liked the reverse pac-man idea, though.

I killed the hero and it was surprisingly difficult and fun.

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 ( 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.
