BORD

by wy477wh173 - Jam Entry

Birds, Birds Never change. They eat, and they poo. They are the unsung monsters of the wild. They poo on anything and everything, and almost killed that one guy on House.

Play as Bord, a lonely Goose, angry at the world, looking to get back at everyone, looking to poo on every somewhat flat surface he can find. You are Bord. Do what Bords do.

Eat. Poop. Fly.

Couldn't stop playing ;) I love how they loose the grin if they get pooped on and the old lady is just adorable =D

Carpet bombing of annoyance.

Interesting idea. Kind of satisfying, too. Couldn't quite grasp how the scoring worked exactly, but oh well -- didn't matter too much.

Liked it. Good job!

That was... interesting. I especially liked the lady whose head is completely enclosed by her umbrella. I feel like there's some deeper meaning to her existence than just to throw bird food on the ground. She covers her head to shut herself off from society, all these other people just waiting to be pooped on, she's not like them, she doesn't need to worry, because she has an umbrella, and bird food. Sometimes I feel just like this old lady. I never thought I'd think about my own life so much while playing a game about a pooping goose. Thank you.



Just in case you'd like some constructive feedback:
I actually find it quite entertaining, the flying and eating mechanism is nicely done, I just think it could use some real purpose. Don't remove the silliness, just add a goal. Also, wall collisions are a bit glitchy at times, which makes it hard to fly through the holes at the beginning. Otherwise, good work!

It's extremely satisfying to poop on somebody. Just as I suspected it might be! 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.
