Adventures of Tic Tac (the cat)

by namrog84 - Compo Entry

The Adventures of Tic Tac!

Video: https://youtu.be/TqkyyNkIbCQ

You play as your everyday evil cat that likes to terrorize everything with no real purpose. Shoot hairvomit balls, climb up things, knock things over, look out the window.

Just be a bored vindictive monster cat.



WASD to move
spacebar to jump
mouse to look
mouse button fire hairballs?



(Note: this is a sandbox style game, just run around being a monster cat for little bit, then esc to exit).




Dev Notes:
The jumping is meh. It behaves poorly, I know :(

Everything was made in unity3d. All of the models are just unity's default cubes/spheres and cylinders. No textures or custom models were used.

As I was playing this, my cat totally projectile vomited from the top of the cat tree to the ground. Excellent game. Very true to life.

Reminded me of my Katamari Damacy days. Would have been cool if I could eat/kill the mice or something to add to the monstrous-ness.

boardtobits: That was the original plan, I had half an animation worked out for it, but it fell short and didn't make it in :(

Haha, very funny game. the cat noises makes up for the lack of music. Great work! :D

Adam is going to send me to the pound when he gets home.

A cat with a projectile weapon is a monster indeed. I had a fun time tearing apart your room. This is what cats do :)

This game was fun. The graphics are cool even though you can tell it was made in a short amount of time. It was hilarious too. Good job!

Why did you use the standard buggy unity CharacterController :(?

Funny - it would have been fun to be able to interact with the mice in some way. I like how the building outside the window had a giant cat head on top of it.

This was actually really amusing. I liked doing low-gravity jumps around the room and knocking things over!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 2:35pm

Despite not being a ton to do, this was entertaining and kept me occupied for longer than it should have. I ran around the room, vomiting, and knocked anything over I could, causing destruction throughout the entire room. So...accurate cat simulator.

Haha! Very funny and cute. I love the cat sound :P This reminds me a lot of Catlateral Damage, but even more chaotic. Well done!

1st Thought:
"I AM GOD CAT! FEAR ME! BLAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHFFFFFHHHH"

Pros:
Fun Concept
I like the physics based gameplay

Cons:
Controls were a little weird.
I just wish I could have done more, like scratch things, etc.

Overall:
With the addition of a timer (like, the owner coming home from work) and access to the rest of the house, this would be an amazing "wreck as much of the house as possible" game lol. Good job. Cool idea.

Nice entry. It was neat terrorizing the living room. I knocked the tv over onto the couch.

Hhahaha, me and my friend had some fun playing this, simply crazy sandbox game! Hahahah
Congrats =)

I focused a lot on smashing that TV, time for my owners to upgrade to 4K. But seriously, this game is great. It's an awesome concept and was really fun to play.

Haha, being a cat person, this definitely has a grain of truth. Well done making everything with just the default prefabs! Everything looked like excellent abstractions of the real object. It's impressive what you made with just those handful of shapes!

Also, Icarus (my cat) came in the room while I was playing (must have heard the meowing) and just stared at the screen with a completely perplexed look!

I definitely went and knocked down every last thing =) Well done!

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.
