Monster In My Room

by TRON.dll - Jam Entry

You are the monster in this kid's room! Scare him to score points! Share your high scores in the comments!

How to play:
Roar to scare the kid. Keep the terror meter in the red to score points. If the terror meter goes too far to the left or right, the kid either falls asleep or dies from fright, respectively. When you see the light turn on behind the door, the dad is about to enter. He will shoot you with his 12 gauge if he spots you, so stop roaring when he enters. He'll check either the closet or the bed, so you'll have to be quick with your reflexes to switch to the other hiding spot before he spots you.

Controls:
PC:
-Left mouse button: Roar
-Right mouse button: Switch locations

Android:
-Tap right side of screen: Roar
-Tap left side of screen: Switch locations

KNOWN ISSUES:
-------------
PC:
-Game over screen comes up too fast. You can't see dad firing his shotgun as a result.

Android:
-Graphics issues
-Game over screen doesn't appear, hit back button to return to title screen

This is my first time exporting an Android project with Unity 5 (I did previously with Unity 4 with no problems like these), so if anyone knows why this is, please do let me know.

A nice and simple little game! I like the art style, and it's very easy to pick up and play.

Haha, quite a similar idea as what we had. We also made a game about being a monster in a childs bedroom where you have to spook the kid. Nice!

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.
