Moral Monster

by Aske - Compo Entry

Sorry for little desc. more is coming soon, but i have school tommorow

MORAL MONSTER:

Made in 48 hours for the compo. I used Haxe with HaxePunk in monodevelop to code it. Photoshop for the graphics and lastly GarageBand for the theme.

Move with arrow keys. If you stand next to the monster it will get angry and attack you. Attacking them cause knockback and stuns them for the next turn.

R = RESTART
Or hold mouse for a second to restart

The source file also contains a build for flash and one for android (no music)

Hope you will enjoy :)

Tried progressing (if that's in) but I always died from killing the monsters. Looks pretty!

the music was very good :D i was hoping to see a game with that moral of the theme monster, jeje, i feel guilty, good ending

Thanks for letting us play your game!

I'm sorry Bob. I'm so sorry.

What I liked:

Nice graphics and animations on the monsters. Fun, solid sounds. Liked the 'cinematic'. Really solid game play foundation for a 48 hour game!

Areas to develop:

Would have loved to see something to mix the combat up (just a little), as after I got the hang of it, you can manipulate the monsters into range pretty easily.

Would love to see this idea further!

Congratulations! Well done!

Nice music and game. Hope to see more soon.
The strategy is good. And I could forever walk into a wall and they'll still move, till they come near and I kill them. The ending was funny. So then I restarted, and got killed, I was just slain. Who was the real MONSTER then!? :P

Nice entry!

SPOILER:

I would've felt sorry for them if they didn't kill me a lot of times.

Thanks everybody for the feedback and kind replies :)

Good game, particularly for 48 hours. The monsters were easy to manipulate once you learned the trick to the combat, unfortunately. That did, however, provide me with a few games of dying before I figured out how to win, which is nice. Unfortunately, there were times that I would get hit by the monster and then could no longer hit that monster, I'd just go sit inside of him and die as he could hit me but I could not hit him. Overall, though, as I said, nice game! And the obligatory: Poor Bob...

Yeah I know about the bug with them just standing on top you, I'll probably make a post compo version with other enemies too..

and thank you very much for the feedback :)

Nice audio. :D

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.
