Haha, it's pretty entertaining to watch Unity-Chan swing a giant hammer around!

Animezilla) Quite neat model. Thou I wish she can run through the build to destry them even more quickly.
Btw - concerning your response - Did you run windows version or web?

The game felt a bit slow and could use some more threats or challenges.
I found myself rotating the camera so the hammer hit things more than swinging the hammer.
I can see part of the unity editor in the top right of the loading screen.

@peterkirk the loading screen is snapshot from sceneView, had no time to PS off all the gizmos :)

@A_K_, I did run both, the windows version seems easier to stop at the loading screen, I'll update a new version to handle it.

really fun idea !
I laughed really hard when I understood that i was supposed to clic-maintain to swing the hammer :)
would need some homogeneous art.

It's a nice idea and pretty entertaining, however the controls are a bit too difficult. I think the mouse sensitivity is too high and swinging the hammer isn't as effective as just wiggling the character left and right.

@Rocketship then you lose so much fun to make all kinds of hammer moves! :D

Good idea but hammer swing it's hard to control

don't mine me, I'm just a big anime chick knocking buildings over. Did I mention I have a huge hammer?

[From MGD:Devitt Upkins] Neat mechanic. I would have liked to have seen more physics and enemies to fight you

It so kawaii, but that's ok it was a lot of fun. "You did done good!"

Nice model for the character! Could do with some more polish and levels and it would be a pretty cool game, people would probably pay for it!

Very fun waving my arm like a lunatic and smashing buildings.

Cool idea, a bit easy to beat but smashing everything with a hammer swing is always funny...i liked the cell shading effect.
Not having strafe moves while holding the hammer was a bit disturbing but once I got it that was fine to swing.

Quite fun! Walking over buildings worked better for me than swinging the hammer, since it was kinda hard to control

It's always funny to destroy a city with an enormous hammer. hahaha.

Direction control should be improved. I cannot forgive this because the monster is cute and it is hard to see her face!

Funny little game, could use more content though!

lol, that was fun. xD

That was great, a lot of fun. My only suggestion would be to remove the building's collision sooner since I kept getting stuck trying to move through after hitting them down.

Nice graphics and the city is cool. A little bit repetitive though, could have more varied challenges.

Sweet idea :) If the graphics would work better as an unit, it would be even more fun!

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.
