Who is the monster?

by kaitokidi - Jam Entry

Funny game to play while you are on a social meeting, a party or anywhere with friends, it is not meant to be an activity but to be a complement to your party, meeting...

Who is the Monster is a social game made by Genís Bayona, with help of Cristina Raluca Vijulie, and graphics made by Xevi Bayona aimed to you and your friends to have a better party, laughs and happiness.

Game made with:
- C++
- SFML
- Gimp
- for android NDK
- for windows MinGW

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RULES (they are on the game so you can skip it now):

There is a monster between us, and we must hunt it.
In order to capture the monster we will use the following procedure:
If you want to ask something to someone, you can say his/her name on the question. (i.e. "How are you John?","Joan, how old are you?","Would you like a refill Marta?")
If you have said the name, he/she has to answer saying that he/she is not the monster. (i.e "Very good, because i'm not the monster","I'm 22 years old, and as you can realize, monsters don't live so much so i'm not one", "Monsters hate beer, and i'm not one, so give me a refill").
If someone claims not to be the monster without being asked any question with his/her name, it will be obvious that he/she is a monster and has screwed up pretending that he/she is not.
If someone answer a question that has been made using his/her name and does not say that he/she is not the monster, Someone who realise it can say (or yell)
" You are the monster! "
(In order to make sure the answer is over, you will have to wait at least 3 seconds between the answer and the acusation) If someone is acused of being a monster, he/she will have to pass a test to demonstrate his/her innoscense.
The test will be chosen by this game using a sofisticated method of randomly picked "truth or dare" actions, but you can play it even without this game using your own tests.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be respectful, remember that the monster is only a joke, we all are humans, enjoy it, and have fun! Hope you might like it!

Interesting idea! I did not expected a social game during a ludum dare!

Fun little party game! Really unexpected.

Good party game!

(Just an aside: you might want to use vsync on the computer version. The coil whine from my graphics card of running at >6000fps isn't exactly kind to the ears)

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.
