Bob B. Bader

by Zettelkasten - Jam Entry

This is the story of Bob B. Bader, a poor guy whose girlfriend has an affair with another guy. That is why he is very mad. Because of his madness, a tumor grew in his head. Oh no! Now Bob no longer knows what to do and kills innocent aliens!

Help Bob on his story and get the highest possible monster level! Watch out for the police!



Movement: WASD
Attack: Space

Have fun!


This game was made by Zettelkasten (programming) and Tandorel (art / music). It was our first Jam together and we had so much more planned - it is a bit sad that we only got this far.

We did not use any premade assets, engines or library for this. For everyone interested, the downloadable Jar contains the source code .

I liked the design of Bob, reminds me of Dragon Ball aliens a bit. The music only seemed to play once, but lent an authentic sadness feel to the whole thing. I would have liked to see more feedback when you punch things/people. But otherwise. Nice job!

I liked how the first time I punched someone, abouth ten police cars appeared. And then I punched them, too. Tom y surprise, it worked!

Somehow interesting mechanic with the appearing ufos. But not clear what to do and what the goal of the game is. The music is nice but ends too early.
Nice Work!

Too bad it has no game design, it's too easy to get into the situation when you don't have anything to jump on and the floor is lava.

Confusing lack of the game mechanics.

A little rough around the edges, a bit confusing. Keep making games!

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.
