Steve and Clomo

==== Description ====
"Steve and Clomo" is a quietly lovely game about a nice man named Steve protecting his child from the monster in his closet, Clomo. In singli-player, you are Clomo. Also, it's more streetily fighterly than quietly lovely.

We highly recommend playing multiplayer if you have at least one gamepad!

The small bars underneath the health bars represent ammo, which you get from the side cubbies! When you throw things, it randomly chooses from your available ammo, but you can tactically choose ammos to gain an advantage over your opponent!

BEAR beats BAT. BAT beats LAMP. LAMP beats BEAR.

Best two rounds out of three!

==== Team ====
This game was made by Zak Reynolds and Clint Glenn! I (Zak) programmed the game and created the 3D and 2D art, and Clint created the music, put together the SFX, and took lead on the design. All the assets were created within the 72 hours, aside from a modified camera shake script, Unity's standard image effects and shaders, and the base sounds for the SFX.

More stuff by Zak can be found at http://zakjr.com/portfolio

Have fun!

How do you run this in Linux?

72 hours wasn't enough for a game like this, very cool idea but still needs work
the game kept on glitching out and things weren't showing up.

@kakarotsan: You should extract the .zip, then run the "SteveAndClomo" file (I tested in Linux Mint, it should work fine!)

@IonProgramming: Thanks for the feedback, what things weren't showing up? Was the framerate low? I'm working on an optimization patch to fix the 'glitching' on slower machines too, it's Unity's garbage collector collecting all the projectiles.

Wow, nice game. I like those plastic models and the ambientation. It would be good see an extended version with more characters and improved IA :)

First fighting game I've seen on LD, cool! Could use a little more depth, but otherwise it was fine!

it s very cool and simple, but the atmosphere is quite really good, aside from some hateful bugs. Also the mac version doesnt work, it s for something above mac 10.6 right?

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.
