The Congress of Monsterdomby Artylo - Compo Entry
"What is a monster, if not part of the Great Congress of Monsterdom!"
- Valgaar, the Bloodlustful
That quote is there for a reason. The Congress of Monsterdom is the most prestigious group of monsters in the unknown universe.
You on the other hand are not prestigious at all! I even heard a lady call you cute and huggable! Not cool...
Ahem! You have been sent to the planet Earth, in order to prove your monsterdom to all congressmen!
To do that you must climb the ranks by slaying as much humans and military forces as you can possibly slay. DO YOU EVEN SLAY HUMANS, MON!?
Go out there an prove to everyone that you are worthy of The Congress!
Controls: (features in game tutorial)
Mouse = Lasers of pain and death
The Congress of Monsterdom is a game, in which you play as a monster, exiled from The Great Congress, sent to Earth to prove its worth.
Equipped with your trusty laser aye, you zap the people of Earth in order to regain health and increase your rank...
...but the Earth has noticed your presence and is not happy with all that zapping that is happening. They have sent their defences to stop you at any cost!... but of course you can zap them too...
The Congress of Monsterdom features 30 ranks, with ever increasing difficulty!
The Earth's forces will send more powerful and just more of everything they've got, so prepare your monster butt, because you'll have to fight your way to the top of The Congress' rankings and claim the title of SUPREME CONGRESSMAN OF THE CONGRESS OF MONSTERDOM (achieved at rank 30)... or just be a regular monster (achieved at rank 15)...
Sorry for no MacOSX or Linux versions. I didn't have time to make a good web version, and I'd prefer to not have one instead of uploading a half-finished build.
Sorry for that inconvenience.
Feedback is almost completely necessary!
Thanks for playing!
The first 5 people to send me a screenshot of claiming the title of SUPREME CONGRESSMAN OF THE CONGRESS OF MONSTERDOM (achieved at rank 30) get a special gift from me <3.

[PATCH 1] The game has been patched with some variable tweaks, including lower health, more damage from enemies and I pulled forward the introduction of new enemy types, for more variation in gameplay.
+ Less health at start
+ More damage from missiles
+ Tanks start spawning at level 7
+ Increased fire rate from enemies
[PATCH 2] Fear the Hard Mode...

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.
