Monere (unfinished)

by WetDesertRock - Compo Entry

This is all but the sound effects, levels, and gameplay of my supposedly 24 hour entry. As I am visiting some people, I didn't want to be super rude and do LD33 all intense. This is as far as I got before giving up. I really like the graphics I made.

Arrow keys to move, space to "leach" from the nodes. Leaching only creates power fluxes thus far.

The objective of the game was to leach energy from the nodes while avoiding power fluxes.

Please note I will gain relatively little from just voting. So please leave a comment! If you don't have much to say, think about what sort of gameplay you thought would've worked well with these graphics, where you wish I went, what sort of changes I should've made.

well it's very pretty, I'll give it that. Reminds me a bit of an abstract rhythm toy, something in the vein of Electroplankton. Nice work for being especially short on time.

It crashes at start B/. I can send the error msg if you want.

The sounds I'm not too sure about, they seem like they're trying to draw all the attention away from the beautiful graphics.

Mantlair, crash log is always apperciated. However, if it is one about finding "Edgedrawer" or something like that, just redownload.

Looks like it would've been an interesting idea! It'd be a shame not to continue working on it!

I like the visual style. Too bad you didn't have time to make it into a real game, I think it would have been fun!

Great graphics
A possible gameplay would be some sort of battle for territory, you can create flux on nodes to "deploy armies" and conquer all the map

The little bit of audio you did have is better than most entries' audio :P

It looks very pretty. Too bad it isn't a real game yet. I hope you'll finish it one day!

Wonderful graphics. I really like the slowly changing color. The orbs looked kind of out of place, for me at least. The audio fits very well. I enjoyed watching things bounce around for awhile.

Cardboard, the orbs did look out of place. Originally they were supposed to just be the lack of light. Not sure what I screwed up, but my lighting method isn't made for removing light.

That's a good start, good looking for now and with a good atmosphere sound!
I'm not sure to understand what's behind this concept , but I suggest to make the player's moves a bit faster ! :)

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.
