by Parappa - Compo Entry

Hunt the lion! I'm a programmer, not an artist, so I cobbled together crude art assets using simple geometric shapes in the Unity editor. Thanks for playing and if you leave a comment I'll rate your entry.

This is for Jericho, would be nice to see where the shots are / going.

The ending was a bit uncomfortable.

Nice. I loved the ending.

Haha, very topical! Excellent take on the theme, and I actually really liked the graphics! I was surprised you even took the time to model the whole office! The game could use some sound effects, though.

Well done, poignant game, even for programmer art. Definitely a monster. Thank you for the game.

Never mind the graphics or the length, I think the ending was perfect. You got the theme excellently there. Great job!

Heheh, ya know I had thought of a Hunter game too at one point, very topical. Despite the basic graphics, I found it kinda fun chasing that lion around. Damn hard to aim though. Would have been great if you stuck some trees in there for the lion to hide in, and made the lion leave footprints, then there would be more of a hunting aspect.

Whoah that ending. i sort of knew it was coming but i still feel bad.

I actually like the lion model ;)

Shiny! Crosshairs would be nice, though eventually I kind of figured out that the middle of the screen at point blank range would work.

YEAH, where do the shots go

I liked the lighting/shadow.

You shouldn’t have called your art crude because I thought things like the lion were well proportioned and intentionally made to look that way.

I enjoyed this entry, good job!

Good short game.

Nice topical game. It's quite hard to aim the gun, though. I really liked the lion model.

I thought, I would play the monster? But I could not control the lion :( (just joking)

I liked it! Good submission. reminds me of like the hunting part of oregon trail, which was debatably the best part! Dentist Simulator 2015 for current events too :P

The fade to black was a little cheesy. Not sure what the tone of the game was meant to be, but a geometrically simple lion flying into the air and rotating like a can you shoot with an air rifle is hilarious. Lion model was qt.

Good game. Reminds me of that guy who everyone hates for killing that lion... Probably reminds everyone of him.

Topical!

I thought the simple geometric style worked pretty well.

I think the ending could've maybe gone on a bit longer, and punished the player more for killing the lion.

I could see the ending coming a mile off, but I actually enjoyed the hunting part of this. Getting vision from high ground, and actually having to not shoot even when you can were both welcome inclusions.

Amazing!

It's an interesting take on theme now with all the Cecil stuff. The "crude art" as you called it is kind of charming actually, especially the lion! Makes me think of balloon-animals haha!

The gameplay was a bit confusing though. It would've been really helpful to have a crosshair and do know the range of the gun. A shooting sound effect would be effective too I think. I was never able to hit the lion, but maybe you can't?

Aug 25, 2015 @ 12:36am

Lol! Good stuff.

Not allot of gameplay, needs more.

liked how the lion went belly up. not a huge fan of the ending. solid entry otherwise, short and memorable!

If you put your movement code into FixedUpdate() instead of Update() you won't have this weird jiggle on collisions (FixedUpdate() is synchronized with Unity's physics engine).
Anyway, nice.

You nailed this jams theme with at least a whole box of nails '^^

Aiming was a little difficult and I took a while to find the lion for some reason.
Interesting take on the theme

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.
