Fangs

by Valon - Compo Entry

Hi!

This is my third Ludum Dare and my third compo.


The game is finished, sadly I saw a bug last minute and didn't have time to correct it (sometimes you can't be detected anymore, which is actually not really game breaking since you can loose from other things but is still very annoying).
As an audio guy I struggle more than I probably should with the code.

I had a lot of fun with the sounds tho, trying to make it super cliché.

At the end of the day I think this is my best LD game so far, it is pretty fast paced and not impossibly hard like my other two (it is actually rather easy I think). You can even do some cool tricks with the "Y" power.

Used :

C# in Unity.
Wwise for audio.

Controls :

WASD or Arrows
Space for Jump
Y for steroid power (toggle on/off). (walk and jump way better)
F for cloack (toggle on/off). (can't be seen)
E to drink the blood of the victim and regain your blood.
T to instant kill the victim (you get no blood)
E when the victim is dead to hide the body.

Kill as many people as possible before your blood falls to 0 and do it in less than 3 mistakes (people seeing you or dead bodies). At 3 mistakes the alarm will start and every victim will try to escape.

I hope you enjoy and if you have feedback on it I'd be happy to ear it.


My goals for the next time should be to learn at least basic 3D and maybe some animation. Or basically anything related to graphics overall.
I also hope to improve at coding.

Thank!

Desperately needs a musical theme rather than just a grindy guitar loop. Killing feels very slow, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Player movement feels very weighty and the jump feels huge, which is pretty cool. Don't know if it fits with the stealth gameplay, though.

I liked the atmosphere of the game. The controls feel a little heavy like another commenter mentioned, but overall a nice concept.

Fun game. Enjoyed the hunting aspect of the game. Fit the theme well (obviously). Couple gripes with it: once I have set off the alarm, the alarm sound continues to play, even if I start a new game. Also, if I kill someone with the "T" key, it doesn't count towards my kill score. Which is sadness. Other than that, cool stuff!

Thanks for the feedback.

I didn't necessary meant it to be stealth. I personnaly play it using a lot of toggle on/off on the Y power and jumping around over buildings and stuff, not really with stealth. I mean in a way it is stealth but it's more in and out kind of stuff to me. Not wait around in a corner.

I wasn't aware of the alarm/T sound bug my bad. I definitly have a line of code stopping the alarm sound tho which is weird.

For the music I didn't really have time, I did this fast but I feel the "metal" loop kinda pumps up the gameplay. Could use more variety for sure.

Good job on finishing and improving on the coding. The map felt a little too big for how fast you were able to move and how far the humans can see.

web build pls

Pretty cool! like the expressions on the victims changing depending on their state, hiding bodies was a little awkward at times though, and it would've been nice to have some buildings you could climb more easily (as an alternative to the steroid power), but enjoyed it as it was

You managed to get a lot of atmosphere in to this. Speeding up behind a human and then sucking his blood was extremely satisfying too. Works really well - the mechanics are the vampire game I want!

Nice atmosphere, nice concept. Music will get boring at some point , but for the jam it's great:D. Controls feel awkward but you get to learn them at some point . Great game what so ever

Pretty good game, requires better music. The controls seem very heavy, you should be able to start moving and stop moving faster.

Other than that, pretty good game!

Audio is nice, idea is solid, wish I could have played a polished version with some fancy visuals etc!

Thanks for the feedback guys!

I actually almost didn't put any music but then I decided it would be better even with this super repetitive one which I did in like 10 min since I was late. Maybe it was not the better choice.

This was awesome. The minimalist graphics do help bring out a sort of hunting mood. The sounds were great. I think my only two gripes are that hiding a body was kinda buggy and that sometimes I would get stuck on the floor for no reason. Otherwise, I had a great time

A web build would be good

I'll try to put a web build tonight

A pretty cool game that nails the feeling of being a vampire stalking unsuspecting prey

Thanks for the new feedback guys.

Also I can't really put a web build since my Wwise is acting up. I would have to redo a new sound integration I think.

Very cool concept and mechanics! The camera was very hard to control and i wish it was more easy to be detected by the humans. Loved the "humans" faces aha
gj!

I love the sounds! How "i" am breathing, just perfect! Only the mouse control is a bit...sensivite? And it is a bit confusing in the beginning to see everything in red. But you get used to it.

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.
