Life as a monster inside a human

by mat1er - Compo Entry

That's not really a game, I just took advantage of this Ludum Dare to share a day of my life.

No real gameplay, no music because I broke my speakers, for a program made in 6 hours because of the impossibility for me to have more time to make it.

But that's it: this "game" try to share how I feel as being a guy and dreaming to be a girl...

You can press f4 if you want it to be in fullscreen.

I'm certainly not in a position to know how you feel and I won't try to tell you something "uplifting". I just want to let you know, that there are people who care. Thank You for this game and You should definetely make one on next Ludum Dare.

If you're alive then there's still a chance for you to get what you want.

I enjoyed this game! It's a great effort for 6 hours; I think you can make excellent RPGs like this, hope to see more from you.

Can't rate it high overall, but giving you my first 5 for the theme, as "monstrous reality" topic is a lot more important than the usual monsters from stories stuff in my opinion. Stay strong, I'm sure you'll find your happiness. :)

Sorry, I tried to play your but the window was too small and my eyes start to burn from reading that little text! But looks interesting from what I already seen in it.

This is... wow. Amazing that you can do this in 6 hours, and sad to hear your story. I hope that one day in the future you can get what you need.

I feel like commenting on the game would be irrelevant, but at the same time I have to say that mo matter what happens to you and no matter what kind of shit people give you, just keep strong and be yourself because that's all that matters. If a bunch of people want to conform to some fake standard of normal that's their problem, don't let their ridicule of your non conformance get to you.

It's a thought provoking twist on the theme. Thank you for sharing your story and your feelings.

Great entry, thanks for sharing this. Trying to think of something inspiring to say but the best I can do is quote winnie-the-pooh: "The things that make me different are the things that make me."

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.
