Kids Taste Best

by runvs - Jam Entry

It was hard work to gain access to the building. You know there is this kid sleeping in its room. You are famished. Just a little snack...


Made with Unity, GraphicsGale, Cubase and a little bit of Photoshop and Aseprite.

Mac version will follow soon.

character moves too quickly to be playable

A bit short with only one level :(. But could have some potential if there was a visualization of the parents sight (at least for easy difficulty) and levels with hiding spots for the clinging-to-the-wall mechanics.

The parents move pretty fast and it was a fast game over for me on my first try. I just started reading the first sentence "Avoid the parents sight." and then I was in the menu again. Either the parent is moving too far to the left, too fast or the text is too late or all of the above.
The same happened in the room with the children. Didn't expect to be able to lose to a child and wanted to read the text first :).

This game moves a bit too quick (both the player and the enemies), which makes it rather frustrating to play. Also, FYI, there appears to be a bug in the start screen. It has a start button you can click and says "press space to start" However, if I press space, then not only does it not start, but it no longer allows me to click the button to start, so it gets stuck.

Everything moves extremely quickly, that could use a bit of slowing down, resulting in the game expressing its positives significantly more.

Cool game! It was fast for me at first, but when I relaunched the game without "fastest" graphics enabled (which appears to be default) it was fine. You should update that in the description, because based on the comments a lot of people had this problem and they probably won't see this comment. Nice game, hope I helped!

The movement is too fast. Can't control the monster right. Otherwise it has a nice feel to it. It has some potential.

It's like playing a monster in Flash's universe :). Way to hard to control the monster. You can still tweak it a bit, you know. But congrats on submitting your entry

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.
