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

by Meta-link - Compo Entry

My entry for LD33 !

Controls :
- M to stop music
- Use arrow keys to move
- Space to interract

So the theme was "You are the monster" ! Well, here you're just a kind lonely ghost trying to get friends. To do this, you will need to help people in their house, and not scare them doing strange thing because they can't see you. I find this cool concept while thinking to the manga "Dusk maiden of amnesia" so that's why some of you may find the reference.
In the end, this concept bring me to a little puzzle game, where you have to think before acting not to scare the people in each levels. Sadly, because of time, the game has only two ... I had tons of ideas to implement in the game, but I totally missed time to draw and integrate them.

Now, my favorite thing, list time !

What's cool in Yukko :
- Yukko herself !
- Finding and interact with objects

What's REALLY missing :
- More level, with more interractions (I had a lot of level design ideas)
- Interractions bringing reactions (like people moving based on what you did)
- Better graphics, I really need to get better until next LD

Done with :
- GameMaker
- Photoshop
- BoscaCeoil

To conclude, I hope you'll get as much fun playing Yukko as I had making it, even if it's really short, and see you at next LD for more games !

The game needs some polish but it's a good example of how to do some different with the theme. Nice work and as Nikteddy92 said.. Yukko is so kawaii :-)

That's a pretty interesting concept! Do you think of making a post-compo version, with the improvements you mentioned? I would love to play it :)

It's a bit short, and confusing. Good art, 'tho. All the guys look the same. The first scene makes sense, and makes it seem like a realistic game, but the second scene messes up that realistic feel.

The idea is pretty good but as you yourself mentioned the content is a little lacking at the moment. The music loop wasn't my favorite, but the aesthetic felt decent enough.

It's a nice little game you've made here. Care to do a post jam version?

Thanks everyone for your comments ! At this point I don't think I'm gonna do a postjam version, but maybe I'll re-use the concept somedays, who knows ...

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 ( 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.
