Are You A Monster?

by Galvesmash - Jam Entry

Are you a monster? The idea is to ironize the bad actions that people have day by day like don't help old people and don't throw garbage in right place. (We had other ideas but not the time...)
Play mini-games that get harder and faster!

We had just 1 day and a half to finish this game, but that's what we could do for the Jam.

Second time working with my girlfriend in a Game Project and it was great! Almost killed her but she survived! :D

Made by:
Gabriel Galves Taliatti (Galvesmash) - Code & Art
Michelle Faifer dos Santos (MicFaifer) - Code & Art
(We are not artists but we tried...)

Unity 5, Photoshop and Gimp.

Have fun! :D

Nice concept, well executed.

It took me far too long to realise that you won by "being the monster". It was pretty good, but goals were a little strange.

That was fun, captain planet would be proud (or not)plus the graphics are nice, you did more than try :)

That was a great idea! You should think about other daily things, like respecting the traffic light, etc.

@JennyS Thanks! Hope you like it!

@Chuckeles Thanks! :D

@hrd_games We started the Jam late, we run out of time for te tutorials!

I really like the idea but damn you need to have jedi reflexes to success xD
Good idea anyway ;)

Links are working again!

Game play is simple but very enjoyable, I love the take on the theme I think that is brilliant, excellent job!

It's a fun challenge to suppress your first instincts in a twitchy game.

Really? I am a good person? Nice work. It could be improved with more features, but it's good enough. Thank you ++

I like it, kind of reminds me of the warioware type microgame style.

Thanks guys! We didn't had much time to refine the game and do more minigames. Hope you all liked it!

Aug 27, 2015 @ 2:34pm

Nice work! Hope you'll have time to keep improving it!

The "monster" consequences are great. You did a heck of a job putting monster into the perspective of a everyday person.

The idea is brilliant and the art is actually better than many other games I tried :P
It only lacks variety and audio.

Nice little game, could've used some sound effects or music. Nice job for a day and a half!

Nice concept. It would be better if there are more scenes!

I liked how it showed how doing everyday things (or not doing them) could be interpreted as you being a monster. Nice take on the theme, just wish there was a little bit more to do.

Cool game, interesting and innovative idea! Cool graphics, too. But yes, you'll need Jedi reflexes to succeed, especially with all this old men :)

We think, that this game will be especially great with touchscreen support.

Ah! You have to throw in the wrong bin! Too bad there isn't more minigames, but it's a nice idea

Nice idea for the theme, and while it would be good to have more minigames we all know what the time limit gets like!

Really like the take on the theme, the art looked good (looks like artists work to me!) and the game does offer a challenge. I would have liked to see more minigames, but of course time restraints didn't allow for this (they never do! :D) Great job overall :)

Great job in getting a game done. It looked like you both had a bigger game in mind, and yet, didn't have the time to implement it. Making minigame compilation was a really bold choice (in my experience, they're hard to make). Hopefully we'll have more sound effects next time!

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.
