Fish Monger

by Zemmi - Jam Entry

Drink like a fish and suffer the consequences.

Nude and embarrassed the Fish Monger must get home. Don't let any body see him though, you wouldn't want to bring shame on the time-honoured trade of fish mongering.

When against a wall, KNOCK with SPACE BAR to attract nearby attention or to repel birds.

Sometimes I got stuck on the walls and they got me but other than that a solid stealth game with a naked fish monster ^^

Pretty cool! Great work on the sighting and the enemies can actually miss! I enjoyed that.

Would benefit greatly from some sfx and soundtrack.

The web version doesn't work for me... but the .exe did! And it was really fun! the art in the game and the art otherwise is quite different (I expected human naked body) but it was funny and enjoyable!

I loved the comic! I was almost a bit disappointed of the actual game graphics, but it was really funny!
Audio's missing, tho.
Keep it up!

Ya I did the menu graphics last and never got around to changing the in-game ones to match. Probably will do in a post-compo update.

The Web version didn't work for me when I tried uploading it from a mac but did when I tried from my PC. Don't know what's up with that yet.

I loved the story to introduce the controls. Being a naked fish monsters was okay, too.

Looks like the fishes have a lot to learn from Metal Gear. Great game, I think so far the best stealth game I tried this LD. The humor is there, the theme is ok. The level gets more and more challenging, and the pacing looks fine too.

Checkpoints would be nice...
Wait... I managed to finish it.

Charming intro. I wish that style continued into the rest of the game.

This was amazing. I can't describe how much I liked this game's style.
The player kept getting caught on the colliders in places I thought he wouldn't.

Humourous context with an interesting premise - nice!

Not entirely sure what I just played, but i like it! The graphics are very lovely! although I do wish there wasnt a big disconnect between the game art and the intro cut-scenes. I also like putting a timer on old school stealth gameplay, really neat!

Haha! That was a bit cheeky. A pretty solid stealth game with a wacky theme.

Very polished game.
It would be nice that the sight cone representation would be altered with the walls.

The intro :D. I didn't expect the game to be that "clean" after that. A classic stealth game, very polished and cute graphics. Quite difficult, the "knock" mechanic helps but you have to be really close to make it work. Kudos for the shooting style when they look at you :D. With some sound effects (knock, being discovered) it would improve quite a lot, but anyways, great entry overall. Good job!

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.
