An usual Day In a Troll's life

by ajopart - Compo Entry

The daily routine in a Troll's life. Edmund never chose to eat women and sexualty assault cows. It's in his nature. Now, a angry mob of peasant wants his skin. What can he do against such violence and misunderstanding ? Run Edmund, Run !!

This is my first Unity 3D entry in Ludum Dare, my first game with this engine, in fact...

Can't play it,
unity says, the data is missing
(there's only an executable, unity needs also the "NameOfExe_data" folder)

I'm such an idiot... Thanks for the comments. I should be good now.

nice graphics

It was a good game :) Bugs: There was a random button on the title-screen and this isn't a bug but I found it a bit strange, the mob chasing you was just a background, good game though I liked it sorry to sound harsh.

@ AdenMansonGames :Thanks for your time for this feedback. I used the button on the start screen to delete the playerPref and see if the progression of the player was good recorded. Forgot to remove it. Over the bloodthirsty background... Yep, no excuse. it stills believes it's an angry mob... And you sound fare.

There's a couple of places where you can fall off the map, in which case the game will react by simply stopping the camera and letting everything else move. There's no way to get out of it, and you won't die of it. Rather annoying!

Now, on to things that aren't bugs: The music is alright and fitting to the theme of the game. However, it could loop a bit better. As it is right now it's rather noticeable where it stops and starts again.

Graphics wise it's fine. Most of the game is well stylized with the exception of the random mob in the back, which for some reason is just a long, non-transparent plane of a scanned notepaper. Needless to say it feels rather jarring and out of place. Maybe having a dark dust cloud instead (I'm sure unity has something like that in stock), or at the very least making it transparent so that it doesn't look like a straight plane would be much better.

There's a few places on the map that could make use of slopes quite well and instead just have abrupt height differences. I'm guessing this is because slope mechanics haven't been added to the game at all, so they were avoided altogether. This is rather sad, since allowing the player to move up or down on the map could have livened up the game play by quite a bit.

Hard work for these models and animation. But the game is too difficult..

Good game. Good graphics and music in general. Controls are ok! I found a bug in the second level. I jumped into the water, and the camera just stopped whereas the troll was still running. I did not loose, but was trapped on this screen. Don't forget to add a restart button in your jam game ;) it will save you a lot of time even in the programming part.

Nice game, I managed to break it by falling in the water on the first level and the second level doesn't quite seem finished. But its fun to play

You have a great sense of humor. And both the graphics and the music is hilarious.

Very nice! Made me laugh so hard, love it, some bugs around and unity buttons, but still a nice one!

Hilarious game. Great job on a nice little endless runner. Look forward to either further development or more from you!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 7:59am

This is a decent start however there were a lot of ways to get out of the map and sometimes I would hit nothing yet still loose. I don't know why this would happen :)

Solid entry! I like the music, and low-poly style. There could have been slightly more warning for the larger obstacles, but other than that smooth gameplay. Well done!

+1 for the Angry Mob billboard image :D

I can't click on anything at the choose level screen.
Sometimes by clicking everywhere I can see a yellow stuff who disapears quickly.

Not super thrilled. You should have spent a more time on the basic movement code as it does not feel very good! Keys get "stuck" when you press multiple directions at once and don't behave well. The level selection screen is really cool! Sexual assault is _not_ a "fun" topic.

Nice entry, pretty good for a first game in a new engine, keep up the good work,

i did notice that if you play fullscreen on the wrong resolution that you cant press the play button, im not sure how you can fix that, but anyways, i shouldnt be playing on the wrong resolution anyway

I like the running game, but the collisions are sometimes very clunky. The graphics are generally good but sometimes some glitches and odd parts get in the way.

It could do with some polish but I like the gameplay and it works well. Well done, it was fun!

The environment was very nice looking. I think even adding some transparency to the mob background would go a long way in improving it. I would also recommend upgrading to a newer version of unity with the new UI tools. The mechanics are very solid overall.

Nice little game.
I love the angry mob billboard. :)
The music however didn't fit too well. I think something a little more fast paced would better fit with the angry mob and the mood of the game.

I'll not be original, +1 star in humor for the billboard ! :p
And a nice timelapse too. ;)

Good model of troll. The mob is really cool :-D The gameplay could have been better and more polished.

The little story was a nice addition. Shame there weren't any women or cows to eat.

Fun game, requires quick reflexes. It's really challanging to get all stars and coins. Entertaining gameplay with nice audio and graphics.

This reminded me of that bit from Shrek with the town folk and their pitch forks. it would be good to recreate the backdrop with flickering silhouettes - but I liked low poly art style!

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.
