"The Master" Project

by The Walking Kiwi - Jam Entry

Welcome to "The Master" Project. This is a game made for the Ludum Dare Jam, keep in mind that us the creators had a BIG plan for the game and tried to do as much as posible in 72 hours, but it's not even close to complete.

In the game you play as The Master, a disease that comes in soups (I know, right?), it's a platformer with a couple of levels though we intend to make more. Also we want to make a wider variety of enemies and bosses for future versions (if there are any).

Edit: If there is an error at the start of the game just ignore it, there was supposed to be an animation there, but we screwed up (picture 4).

W/A/D - Move
Left Click - Sword
You can jump on some enemies, the rest you can figure out by yourself.

Thanks for playing, we hope you enjoy the game even if it's not close to complete!

- Camilo Gallardo, Guillermo Zolessi, Rodrigo Médica

fun game with good idea, but the walking is very wired like your walking on ice

I like the oppressive, threatening atmosphere you've made with the music and art! Unfortunately, I am terrible at platform games and didn't manage to make it past the first level. A real shame about the missing animation.

I get this error:

action number 1
of Create Event
for object control:

Video file not found (or name too long).

Got a video error at the start, but the game played. From there, the game looked interesting, but the fireballs were pretty much impossible to avoid. (This may be because your character moves so far to the right of the screen when moving forward, you don't have much time to react).
Also the collisions when jumping were tough to gauge because it seemed like the detection box was smaller than your sprite, so I ended up getting hurt as much as I would actually stomp things.

Very nice project guys, i really love it, please check our game too and if you liked it give us a vote. Look for Road to hell and enjoy.

Cool platformer, very hard. May I suggest to add some checkpoint every once and then, so I can try to reach the end? :D

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.
