Attack of the Meef

by KR-Eddie - Compo Entry

Attack of the Meef

You are a Minotaur and you need sustenance! Gather meat and return to your cave.
One of the few reasons a Minotaur ever leaves his lair is to seek food. Those pesky humans that keep barging on your territory are the perfect prey!
But in the end, is this just a meaningless slaughter, or is all this killing justified?


Default controls:
Arrow Keys - Movement
Space Bar - Punch
Shift - Sprint

Escape - Exit (Desktop)

You can damage humans by punching them, sprinting on to them or pinning them to a wall.


Notes:
Web version seems to have problems with Firefox and IE. I recommend using Chrome.
On the embedded player, click the Refresh button if you can't get focus on the game.
Cow -> Beef; Minotaur -> Meef.

This is the best I've played yet (of 7 or so) which says something. I loved it! Even after I got the meat I went back just to explore. Great job!

Phew! Got lucky with going right and getting just the harmless people and not the ones with the pitchforks!

I like the graphics of the game as well as the sound. That's for sure!
I wish the bull had speels or skills with which you could destroy them harder but that would be just additional stuff.. DLC? :D
However, great game overall! Good Job!

This game was not very innovative, yet I felt like it's not a pattern that is being repeated all over since 20 years (*cough* CoD *cough*). It was fun to play, although it was to easy. I only lost 3 hearts during the entire gameplay. Theme interpretation was not bad, but there is a lot of games with a very similar interpretation. The graphics were ok, but were good enough to rate them 5/5. The music was fitting and nice, so were the sounds. There wasn't a lot of humor, but humor is not the purpose of LD. The music and graphics combined with the gameplay created a nice mood.

Great graphics and the controls felt very smooth! My only criticism is that the fighting is repetitive, it didn't matter if there was one unarmed guy or 20 pitchfork guys, the tactics of running in and punching are the same.

This game is AWESOME! I would actually play this as a full fledged game. Not super original, and if we are being pedantic the evilness is only skin deep. But that doesn't matter because it is super fun!

Very satisfying to play, the hits had great impact! It would have been nice if sprinting into someone stunned them so they couldn't attack you while you were charging, but the punching was great. Nice entry!

Fun game. Graphics and movement feel great.

Backspace to reconfigure controls doesn't work in the web version. I think it is due to it being reserved by the browser or something?

Solid game. I was delighted when I found a flock of unarmed villagers. I am so evil. >:)

I like characters art style! But game needs more abilities or stuff to do - one button combat isn't fun for too long :)

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.
