Human Within

by lucienpro - Compo Entry

You are a monster, and you are not happy about it.

But you have heard of a potion that can turn you human.
You have taken some food and gone on a journey to find it.
You might not survive.

Go into the woods and try and survive against human mobs, falling trees, ninja attacks and much more.

This game is heavily inspired by Oregon Trail. I only casually made this game but I'm still pretty happy with the result, but sorry there isn't any music.

I'm only 14 so the graphics are pretty simple and the mechanics aren't anything too special but I hope you enjoy playing Human Within!

Please comment on anything (good or bad) and I'll check your game out and comment back.

Thanks for reading this far, lucienpro.

That brought back good memories, I liked how concise it was to Oregon Trail and yet it's own game, keep at it!

Lost chasing butterflies 4 days in a row and made -5km of progress >:(

Also the "chased by humans" minigame seemed a little broken, just died suddenly.

Really cool retro feeling. Wished you got slightly more food from hunting though. Lots of fun "events" happening while travelling :D

I lost a few times because I expected to be able to run behind the trees. It doesn't make much sense to collide with the top of a tree.

Other than that, it's a good game.

The way this game was developed was done pretty well, with the overall humor of it being enjoyable. I mean who can't resist wombat jokes?

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.
