Be THE Monster

by eLLectron - Jam Entry

Hi everyone !
"Be THE Monster" is our fourth game made for a Ludum Dare :-) We made everything in the given three days.

Let me introduce my team :

-ArtRemix (@LeArtRemix)
He composed cool chiptunes with Milkytracker

-Ixous (@Ixous94)
He's the game designer and did some graphics (Photoshop)

-Olgret (@olgret38)
He drew some graphics too (Aseprite)

-Me (@YoPoxDEV)
I dealt with all the code (Atom.io / Chrome)

The goal of the game is to be THE monster, but how ?
First you can choose a monster by adding different parts, each monster have different stats and abilities.
Then you have to fight 3 monsters in the arena !
Good luck :-)

You will find the source on the GitHub repo !

Have a good time playing our game ☺

Ahah, loved the monster creation process. Would be really cool to have a better AI.

Monster creation was great, music was great. Controls felt a little swimmy once I was fighting. Nice job! :)

My monster Fline was THE monster. Cool that you had time to implement AI. Good job!

Really cool! I like how the different parts affect both appearance and function.

The monster creator is awesome, but the gameplay itself is a bit... lacking.

Lacks some mechanics in the area. Liked the character creation and graphics.

Great idea. Good variety of abilities to pick from. AI kind of gave up sometimes and kept running into a corner which made it really easy to kill, but otherwise pretty challenging.

You have really nice graphics and cool music. I tried out a few different monster combinations and like others have said, if the arena ai was a bit better the game could be awesome. When the enemy monsters weren't stuck in corners it was really cool =]

On Safari, I wasn't able to see any animations for the various attacks. For example, when the bomb exploded it would just flash and be gone. When I used the body shock ability, I didn't see any feedback, just a sound.

I thought this was interesting, but could have used a lot more polish to make the individual attacks feel better. The music was awesome, though, and the titlescreen really grabbed my attention.

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.
