Room Chaos Monster

by Demy - Compo Entry

Story like this one happen with people every day. We just don't have enough time to look closer and see our own Chaos Monster. But you need to know that these creatures know a lot about an honor and can do everything to save their own home from the disaster. So this is the story about one day of the Chaos Monster life.

Made with the Starling+Feathers. Self made collision detection and z-sorting.

Controls:
Arrow keys or WASD - walk
Space bar - attack! (press it multiple times to destroy an item)

Also don't miss the Bonus Level!

The idea is pretty fun, but the game is a bit too simple too enjoy longer than one play. But it made me smile and that's a good point ;)

The idea is fun, but the gameplay itself is a bit too simple imo. Works fine however!

Funny cute entry, liked the little chaos monster and doing his job. Would be nice if in the bonus level when items are dropping there was a shadow on the ground showing where it'll land cause I couldn't tell. Nice simple entry.

Very cute. I really enjoyed it. I included it in part 1 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/SB3lix7PW1A

I like the idea and had fun with it.
It was satisfying the mess that guy's stuff up.

Decent game. Could use more to do and more content, but what was there was good.

I feel like I have more than one of those monsters in real life.

Great concept! In essence, it a bit like The Borrower Arietty... a bit.

I love the humor. The game seemed a bit short but hooooooo, a bonus level. \o/ That's a good game.
I think I have too many of these monsters in my home. Any advice to get rid of them ? :D

This is really cute. I really like that you did 2 games with the added bonus level. Could be fun to add some combos, obstacles and powerups for extra challanges and a more deep gameplay.

Haha I know that monster too well!

Really fun! The bonus level is cool!

Cute. :) Has potential for expansion!

Nice. I'd recommend not using mouse input for menus if your game only uses keys to play.

Pretty simple game, and easy to understand!

Sometimes I have trouble moving around in the bonus level. I think I'm getting trapped beside or inside objects or something. It might happen when an object falls or is falling on top of me? Or maybe I'm just getting stuck on a nearby object that hasn't despawned yet? I'm not too sure exactly.

Fairly humorous dialog as well. Nice job overall!

Short but sweet. The graphics are cute, the game is fun for a play or two, and it covers the theme well.

Haha this made me laugh. Well done! Especially loved that you also had a bonus level!

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.
