The Real MVP

by cheapmecha - Jam Entry

This is my first LD. The reason why I optd-out from graphics is because I'm not the one who made them. More info about them at the game credits section.

Nonetheless, you're a goblin whose job is to protect the game it's in. Bunch of players will try to kill you, try not to die, or else, they will win the game.

You can find the source(unity project) of the game on the windows download.

All feedback is appreciated.

And if any starting artists are looking for a programmer, just contact me at skype: mizuwow

Thanks <3

"If you can't run this Entry, please leave a comment saying so and explaining why"

Can't run it because it's actually a Unity game and I don't want to install Unity Web Player.

Not too shabby. I like the reversed aspects, ie moving right to left, level 3 to 1, cant open chests. Gratz on your first LD entry.

Why not for Chrome? Worked fine for me.
Just curious: at one point an enemy ran onto my head and couldn't get out of that "trap", is that an intended feature? :D I wonder if it's possible to build a tower of enemies on your head. Anyways, good job.

It was a good game however I got a bug where my player would fall and there was no ground then he would reappear at the top of the screen and keep falling

I don't know that the whole "carry players on your head" thing was a feature or a bug but it is damn funny :) I like it:)

I loved the sound effects in this, especially on the punch! Was quite fun as well, a little like Nidhogg

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.
