Starvin' Sasquatch

by GertJohnny - Jam Entry

What's a Sasquatch going to do when he gets hungry? Shopping spree!

Rummage around friendly campers fridges and coolers to find the foods you crave, they don't mind sharing!

Don't get spotted! Sasquatches have a reputation to keep.

If you throw away all the food (shame!), press R to restart the level.

This is excellent, I love the art style. The added mechanic of rushing to click and add items while trying to stay stealthy is very fun. Bravo!

Very fun and an impressive amount of polish too. Especially loved the grabbing-things mechanic. ^^

Very nicely done. Love the art and the theme. Took quite some time to load the WebGL version, but that's a Unity thing. Once it loaded, performance and animation was smooth.

Really enjoyed this game. Good job. Only one wish is to better show what I have to collect, as it was really hard to understand what was written and english is not my native language :) Overall - very good job!

Wow I really love this one, nice work !!!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 6:13pm

Really cool game! Loved the art and the mood! Amazingly well done for a Ludum Dare entry! :O Perhaps could make it a little less step in difficulty between level 2 and level 3 - though in summary the best game I've tried yet this Ludum Dare!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 6:15pm

Very nice fresh take on the stealth genre.
The physicality of picking things up and moving them is also a nice touch.
Very good entry!

Whew, that was a pretty intense experience! I enjoyed your game!

Excellent graphics! Nice characters. Did you do it all the graphics during the jam? Who is your artist? I could not find the credits :D

Very good looking, many levels and the game itself is fine.

@mboaj Everything except the audio was created from scratch in the 72H period. 2 person team, very little sleep.

Well done with this entry! The art is wonderful, and it's a lot of fun to play. The idea of a 'shopping list' of sorts is a lot better than 'grab all the food', as it really adds to the intensity (finding certain items before you're spotted).

Absolutely fantastic game.

I love the art, the gameplay, and the concept.

There is something about panicking to pick up every single object in the fridge before someone spots you that I just love.

My only complaint is that there is not more of this.

Fantastic game. You don't see many stealth games that really pull it off during a Ludum Dare, but this is definitely one of them.

Excellent game! Great gfx, great sound effects. Obviously stable and well built - always a plus!

Rummaging mechanic was very well done.

My favorite jam game so far. Overall really enjoyed this game! Played through the whole game and I liked the rummage mechanic, especially when you are frantically grabbing items on your list before the kid comes back to the cabin!

Wow, really solid entry! the hand mechanics feels so satisfying! the art is incredible. One of the bests so far. good job!

Aug 26, 2015 @ 3:00am

Amazing entry, I love the art and the animations. The feel of opening and getting the stuff is really good!

the most beautiful and pleasant game I've played this LD. Well done. I just wish there was more information on how big the vision cones are and maybe some way to recover.

Still, the best stealth game yet - it seems like half of all games I've seen are stealth based. Excellent job!

This is a really charming and well done stealth game. I think my only gripe is that it feels weird to have to position the mouse cursor precisely over the food to pick it up instead of just holding the hand in the general area.

Good work!

This is the best looking game I've soon so far! :D The sneaking is fun and the physics in the fridges is a nice touch. The game is super polished, great work!

Aug 26, 2015 @ 3:34pm

This was really well put together, and actually my highest rated Jam submission! Awesome game!

Cuteness overload.

Aug 26, 2015 @ 6:14pm

One major thing that annoyed me about this game is right click to walk.

Other than that I thought that it was pretty good. Great job man!

Another sasquatch game! Very cute art style, and I really enjoyed stuffing all the food in my sack (I didn't stick to the list he he he).

WubAlliance says ...
Aug 27, 2015 @ 6:22pm

This game is incredible. I felt like the hitboxes for the food were slightly misplaced, but other than that there isn't really much to complain about. The graphics and animations are solid, the audio is excellent (its a shame you guys didn't make it, that would have been another 5/5!). Awesome level design, overall super game. Well done!

Jakob37 says ...

Very nice mechanics! The manual opening/moving of food led to a more immersive feeling, it felt like I was the one frantically trying to snatch those sausages... A small detail: The food moving mostly went well, but sometimes felt slightly of (in particular for the sausages) which led to I failed to move them several times.

Overall, I am highly impressed of this entry, both sound, movement, visuals... You know what you are doing!

It's fun, it's challenging, it looks great. The whistle get's super annoying after a while.

I really feel so hungry when i grab these food ~ what a immersive feeling! but i think these black mask (which hold my view )may so solid(too sharp edge)...
if it can be more blur~~ the feeling maybe more great and fit the feeling better~☆゚

I also included your game in an article of my favorites from this jam and added a trophy to your Ludum Dare profile!! :)

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.
