YOU ARE THE MONSTER!
In this idle game you click on yourself (the big brown monster) to eat humans jumping from the lighthouse in order to hire minor monsters to raid the village for you! Oh! You'll have to defend them from missiles too!

######################################

FEATURES INCLUDE:
A 16:9 aspect ratio and 720p native resolution!
Extremely realistic (*cough*) blood and explosion particles!
An optional camera-powerded "You-Are-The-Monster"-Mode!
3 exciting minor monsters to hire!

######################################

I know you probably hate idle games but this one's so short that it's not really an idle game and my first project was lost due to a crash and thus my time was greatly shortened. (I finished quite early though)

Good graphic. Good concept. But it is a bit repetitive and boring. :(

Not bad, pretty nice, but couldn't really hold my interest for more than a couple minutes. Nice sound effects though :D

Great music, the prices are too big. Corresponds with theme.

Super cute, loved it. The missiles were a nice touch, and it really felt impactful when they hit (my precious charizards!) The balance was really nice too, and I loved the animation of the naked humans leaping into the monster's mouth.

REALLY strong game, love the camera idea, love the twist on the typical clicker-game by adding rockets to click, love the victory music ;) Good length of game too.

Damn those sound effects are good! Love em! Cool game, not really a game for me ( too repetitive ) but still a solid game! Oh and a little heads-up at the start that tells you where to put the spam bot would be nice ;)

Cute art style (and funny choice of monsters)! Liking the rockets because they made the game more challenging.

I love the webcam feature idea, unfortunately I don't have a webcam to test it with. Very good integration of the theme. Took me a few hits to figure out that I could click on the rockets to stop them. Overall, good entry. Well done!

@Josh H: You're probably not going to read this but I'm going to mention here anyway, that the game should run on all relatively up-to-date smartphones too. ^^

Maaan, this is so simple and so catchy, wow, just wow, great entry!

Pretty addictive but the prices get too high too quickly so it becomes a bit tiresome after some of the big monsters get wiped out. With some more power ups and perhaps a bit more lenient on the prices then I would have been playing this for quite a while! Charming art style and pleasant music and audio.

Very good game, you should give more time or space to click the rocket, but nice clicker, funny and very smooth graphics and mood : D

Simple, well made game. I included it in part 13 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/1VzFVc1MuWc

Pretty awesome.
Keep playing it :). Simple. Clean art and good feel.
Repetitive but for a compo entry it's a great game.

For clicker game, it felt quite hard. Especially reaching the final goal. It would have been nice to be able to restart the game from within the game. It also was not so much one could to about the missiles, and it required quite some clicking. It was interesting though, that it really didn't get any easier due to the increase in price. There's something though that needs to be tweaked with the difficulty or such so that it keeps the fun up so that one just wants to get on going. I think it lies in having the ability to affect the missile somehow. Besides that, I liked the graphics a lot and it was a good game.

@local minimum: You can in fact completely destroy the missile by clicking it! I should've really put that information somewhere in-game... ^^

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.
