by S0rax - Compo Entry

The game is between a STR and tower defense.

You are an egg and you can control all the monsters and you can create them.
But some peaple are afraid about your egg and they want destroy it. You must protect your egg and kill all human, all camfire.

CONTROL :

ARROW KEY : Move camera
LEFT CLICK : Selected group of monsters
RIGHT CLICK : Change the target of your group

I used LWJGL and my own framework based on lwjgl : SCEngine

This was an interesting game. I liked the ability to buy monsters. I wasn't sure what to do during the game though. I bought a bunch of spiders, but then I let the game sit for a few minutes and nothing seemed to happen. If there was a threat to my egg then it did not seem to be very noticable.

J'ai pas tout compris mais le principe est fun. Le son est correct, le graphisme aussi, mais le gameplay n'est pas intuitif.

Hard to play first time, but still a good game ;). There is a bug with buttons, the hitbox is not centered, you have to click on the right of the button

I didn't understand what to do :/ An explanation of the controls would be very helpful. I just bought some creatures but they just moved randomly and my egg was never threatened by anything...

It was a little unclear what to do, and a bigger window would have been helpful. It also wasn't clear when monsters were selected or not. But it's an interesting idea nd could go further with some work!

Everything I could suggest is already mentioned above.

PS: We have fixed our game, if you want to see it again. ^^
Thank you.

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.
