Ludum Dare 33 — August 21st-24th, 2015 — Theme: You are the Monster

Night Time

by Gaspard_ - Jam Entry

Made in java&opengl using LWJGL.

You, you are the monster entering a peaceful village in the forest.
Plot twist: this village is still being built as you enter it.
GOAL: Kill all the villagers, hunt them all down! Make this the bloodbath* of the century!
Please post your highscores, I want to see them!
*Blood not included, sorry.
Soundtrack(by myself):https://soundcloud.com/gaspard-4/night-time
For the sake of transparency: I had forgotten to make the seed used to generate my world random. To correct this I added a line of code 10 hours after the deadline.

Just for reference, finishing the game(killing all villagers) gives a score > 30000, but varies depending on remaining health and how many villages you let spawn.

Interesting and fun graphics, controls feel a bit clumsy and non-reactive. The "newsflash" headlines at the end were a nice touch.

37007. Losing score was harsh but challenging. The plot twist nearly made me pee.

The music was too loud

@pi_pi3 I don't get this comment... can't you just adjust your volume? The music is at 0db, or so I think, I just wrote the bytes directly to the speakers..

Neat idea - a bit confusing, and I think I killed children. Nice game!

I have stripes all over the screen, I don't know was it by intence or not, but they looked super glitchy. People looked too calm for someone how have been attacked by a monster =)

@Demy this is actually not the first time here this.

Could anyone who has this problem tell me what GPU/Hardware they're using?

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.
