I Know You Are, But What Am I?

by bonnup - Compo Entry

Personal Note:
I don't usually finish the programming projects I start. LD33 followed suit. I am happy with what I did finish though.

I didn't exactly complete the "Math-y" part of the game. That means the challenge in every level is the same lol. I hope you'll stay for the narrative though!

Move Cursor - mouse
Push Buttons - left mouse button
Toggle Values - left mouse button
Reverse Toggle Values - hold shift and click left mouse button
Scroll Through Dialogue faster - (hold)left mouse button on dialogue
Reset Level - R

System Requirements:
The game requires .NET 4 and XNA 4 to be installed and is Windows only (tested with Windows 7).

If not installed, the game crashes on start!

.NET 4:

XNA 4:

Neat idea, but waaaaaay too much clicking. I would very much have liked to see it with more mathy stuff implemented.

Fascinating... but so difficult to get a hang of

needed a better control system, but a good idea

Love the concept but way too much clicking. Maybe holding the mouse button to keep going would help on that. Mathy part would have definitely helped make this a lot more compelling.

Definitely need some better way to input the numbers besides mashing click. I'm sad you didn't get to "Math-y" part - it showed a lot of promise.

It crashed for me on the "you are not human" line and wouldn't do anything else. Otherwise a cool idea.

I appreciate the feedback! I will definitely be polishing this project up later.

Things I will change:
-Less Clicking (Maybe a keyboard option for value input)
-Animated Buttons
-More Math (Various and more challenging functions)
-Various Bug Fixes (of course)
-Even Less Clicking!

As already said, the concept is nice but the control got in the way.

Interesting idea. Besides what has been said, I think it is difficult to follow the narrative because it scrolls by whilst I try to figure out what I can click.

File won't open for me on Windows 10.

Too bad it has no sounds and the math has gone awry. But if expanded upon, it has a great potential.

The learning curve is quite high, the theme kind of get lost due to the nature of your gameplay, still a good effort :)

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.
