Make him scream

by KeyboardCat - Compo Entry

In this game, YOU are a monster that want to become an "official monster". To do this, you need to take an exam which consists to make a man the most afraid as possible ("Make him scream !").
To do that you can interact with some objects of the house.

-- Conception Notes --

I had to finish this game really quiclky, because of that he is really short, there is also no real "story" (I mean the one with the exam) and some sounds and animations are missing... And I had no time for the Jam :)

Have fun and thanks for playing !
(I'm French, if there is some "language mistakes" I'm sorry :/)

Nice looking game. Some things doesn't make sense to me. But I got to The End screen 100/100 still after clicking bunch of stuff. Why can't you hide under carpet? :(

mixed reactions to this one. Love the Art! .. found it a bit mixed on the engagement side of gameplay. The music is decent too!

The art style is really cool, but there wasn't a lot to do. otherwise really solid!

Nice art !
I've tried the game twice and the first time i've got 100/100 and the second time i've got 86/100. Perhaps it's because i did'nt interact with all elements but it's weird and we don't know which element is a clue for the monster (a sound effect, a visual feedback).

The concept is cool and I think we can go deeper with it.

Good job :)

Nice graphics ! The music is also cool. But if feel like I'm not doing much in the game and the door to the garage and the kitchen were hard to find.

Nice pixel art game with a nice theme interpretation and a well executed gameplay. Too bad you had to finish it quickly, but don't worry, this a nice overall entry ;) (En plus si c'est un francais ^^)

Funny idea! I don't actually know how I did it, but I got 100/100. The art style is really beautiful. Cool game.

A bit light on game mechanics, and it took me a while to figure out that the green description texts were actually buttons. ;) But interesting game beginning and good art! :)

Great-looking game. I love the concept but unfortunately it feels really unfinished and the gameplay doesn't make sense in its current state.

Game looks neat thanks to the art style. However I got a bit confused by the ending. I wish you could see how afraid is the guy.

Très très joli jeu ! Il n'y a malheureusement pas grand-chose à faire et je n'ai pas trop compris comment je suis arrivé à la fin mais le concept est sympa et mériterait d'être plus développé

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.
