I'm not a monster

by Eduardo - Compo Entry

The idea of the game was a monster that was a good monster, but people was afraid of him. Then he tried show people the he is a good monster by throwing hearts on them. kinda silly idea, i don't know.

It's not finished off course. I guess i'm not in the mood to make a cool game. I'm submitting anyways!

Move with arrows keys or WASD.
Shot heart with Z or SPACE.

So, this is a guy who is trying to show people that beard gives you power to share your love but people got missing after that. =D
Too bad it has so few mechanics. Looks good, I like your graphics.

Solid core, needs a bit polish and some more mechanics though.

Great graphics, neat idea, but it could do with some kind of fail state.

I liked it, the style was really reminiscent of my SNES years. Even the sounds matched. It was a great start!

Your pixel art looks great, as usual! Sorry you didn't get to flesh this one out fully. I know you've been busy with other game projects too though, so no worries. I need to dive into pixel art some time... it scares me though.

Visually interesting. Good job.

The running animation is pretty sweet.

Too bad you did not get the time to flesh it out a little more. A few additional mechanics and it could have been so much more.

Good luck on your js13k ;)

very limited game mechanics but well executed

Interesting idea, I must admit.

This is looking like a great start to a cool game. Love the responsiveness of the game action (screen shaking and audio when shooting).

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.
