Rowdy Boo

by merzlot - Jam Entry

You are the monster! Tiny monster that lives under the bed. You are not very scary at all... But you know how to deal with it! Some creepy howls at the right points will scare your roommate. Find these spots and be aware of robots!

WASD - move
Space - jump

Drop things on the floor to get more points. This also increases your alert level, so be careful. Every green point found increases final score multiplier by 1. Find all 10 points to win.

I lost shortly after getting the first green thing. It was fun anyway though. One of my favorites so far.

Very well made; I like how you can knock down robots so it's a bit easier, although many of the jumps are very hard. The composition of the room is very well made.

That was funny! I love the way that I can interact with books or can. I would like to see more objects to push/throw.

Well done, but some instructions would have been cool. Seems to have a rather steep learning curve. I didn't get too far since it was not so clear how to reach the higher areas and the light was so dark

Aug 25, 2015 @ 10:24pm

Wow one of the best games I've seen :D

Great SFX and music. The graphics and lighting are very well done though I found it a little too dark in places. Full of nice touches like being able to knock stuff over. Impressive little game, I would definitely continue this project.

1st Thought:
The camera movement/ mouse sensitivity needs to be turned up.

Pros:
The drawing on the wall. I died laughing, lol.
The music could not have been more perfect.
The lighting really added to the monster mood, excellent job.

Cons:
Some of the jumps were a bit ridiculous in terms of difficulty.
Mouse sensitivity.

Overall:
GREAT job. This is my favorite by a landslide out of 14 total I've played so far.

Really nice graphics and gameplay! You should just force the position of some objects in your scene. For example, they are books that you need to climb on to continue the level. I'd run onto it and they felt to the ground. I had to restart :s. Neverless, it is one of the best game I've seen in this game jare at the moment

Thanks for playing and comments! :)

Wow! Really great. I also found it a little hard, though.

Two minor bugs: the cursor isn't locked in the game if you play in a window and it crashed when I tried to quit. Neither of those are deal breakers though.

This is by far the best, most polished game I've played so far in LD33. The music and sound effects go perfectly with the style, and add to the ambiance, giving it high marks in Mood. The graphics are incredible, its crazy to think you were able to get all of this done in 72 hours. The collision detection and physics seemed very smooth and not forced.

Like others, I found the mouse sensitivity to be a little off and getting those higher points seemed very difficult, but, at the end of the day, it definitely adds length and complexity.

Very impressed!

Very good graphics and atmosphere!
P.S. Hello from Siberia :)

Very fun game. One of the most memorable games so far I played.

This is one of the more enjoyable games I've played so far :)
I had a few issues with getting stuck on things but not enough to really diminish the experience. great fun!

I love 3d platformers! And this is the only I've found so far in this entire competition. Very well done on the graphics, I loved that Metal Gear Solid, and platforming felt fun and satisfying. :)

Wonderful entry, love that visuals!

You can just hop on the heads of the robots and nothing will happen. Great :D

Very nice little game. I really like the graphics and the idea behind it. It was a little difficult to understand what all was happening at the start, but the audio prompts and exclamation marks on the screen helped a lot. Nice game!

This was a lot of fun. The first time I walked into the light and discovered I was actually green I chuckled.

I had some problems getting to the points on the bed-side of the room. I thought I found the route I needed to take but wasn't able to make the jumps...

Very nicely done!

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.
