Moon werewolf

by Rongon - Jam Entry

Full moon gives power to werewolves, so question is what would werewolf do on surface of moon? ;)

You are disguised as normal citizen (blue) hiding from guards (yellow), and you need to eat all citizens by transforming into werewolf (red).

Guards chase you and try to kill you when you are revealed.

Every 13th eaten citizen, one inquisitor arrives, which is hidden (has blue color, but changes to orange when are you near him), and you need to avoid him (don't try to kill him).

Kill all 32 citizens to win :)

INSTRUCTIONS:
Drag around screen to move.
You can use (W) for activating Werewolf power, or clicking button in left.

It's mobile friendly - only for Android, at the moment :(

Android build is recommended, as the game is mobile friendly.
Web build has problems with font colors (all text became black) :p

Neat idea, but there's nothing stopping me from just wolfing up, taking out a single citizen, and then hiding again immediately. Maybe there could be some sort of incentive to getting multiple kills in one wolf-run?

And the guards seemed to have a very short memory. "Oh, he went blue. He must be a normal citizen."

On my Android tablet here (Nexus 7 2012) the werewolf button gets me a blank pink screen.

Looks great otherwise, I was hoping to play it.

I just wish that there was a way to invert it if that makes sense

i am sad that the game is not really playable on the web. as soon as my mouse hits the edge of the screen, i cannot rotate any further :(

@Logan That's how smart werewolf survive. I agree combos would be great, thanks for idea :)

@darkpaw Yeah, probably shaders don't work :( I didn't test it on any tablet, although my Samsung S4 runs it fine.

@iossif
Try to center it back every time. It would be overpowering that you can rotate indefinitely.

I liked it, even if it was on PC, still very fun! And good ambiance with the background music and the texts which regularly appear on the screen (I would suggest another text font though). Also, good idea to add inquisitors, maybe a game with more levels with various challenges like this would be interesting.

This was cool, the setting is quite.. interesting :D The controls on the web player didn't feel super responsive but they worked well enough. Had fun with this!

Could be fun. I don't see a reason to hold in the mouse button. Have a look at Screen.lockCursor

I loved the audio, which is a shame because I can't vote for it! Nice 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.
