strašidlo

by Malor - Jam Entry

You are a happy young man, who have a girlfriend, who loves flowers. You want to bring her some, but evil wizzard turned you into a ugly strashidlo. So now you have to collect flowers to become a human. But don't eat hungarian villagers. They were you friends some time ago.

Controlls - mouse.

collect flowers and don't touch villagers if you want happy end. Or...
Eat villagers, it's realy funny!

Game is still under judgement on playgrounds (but playable), so don't be afraid.

Random!
Quite hard - maybe a few too many enemies. Or maybe I just couldn't work out how to eat them. Is there an ending? I wasn't able to trigger one.
Also sad I didn't find any weeping angels!

Perhaps it's my internal monster. But I mostly liked killing the humans! I don't know if I have the patience to get the "good ending" I really really like the menu graphics!

I don't know why I am slowing down as I eat flowers. I guess it supposed to game more difficult but its jsut get on my nerves.

High on music (nice folk toon)
Ok on graphic (nice desing of characters but no background art)
Low on gameplay.

I really tried to get both endings - Couldnt get either of them :(

Ps. I didn't know that Hungarians have Straszydło (Polish spelling ) as well

Nice art and music, but seems kind of impossible to win, as you slow down with more flowers and so many villagers. I could only make it halfway along the bar.

I like the idea, visual style and music! But I don't get the win condition. Also, why is the player slower when he catchs more flowers? O_o

Couldn't play - it's still under judgement (hint: GameJolt, GitHub, host it anywhere that doesn't impose a delay on exposure)

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.
