Beautiful Winter

by ManuSaiz - Jam Entry

Winter has came, and with it, a terrible doom has fallen over your village.

As many of the others, you have misteriously died. Unlike the others, you have resurrected as a weak tangle of bones and flesh. A feeble specter thirsty of human blood. Weak and incomplete, aimlessly lurking in the dark, feeding on fresh corpses.

However, the winter whispers words of hope for the dark hearted. Listen to them to find out where the bodies rest

How to play:
Red bar shows your hunger meter. When you ran out of blood, you starve and die.
Use "W","S"&"D" to Move silently. Listen to villagers conversations to find out where people died. Investigate & feed on them HOLDING "SPACE".

No idea what it is I'm meant to do since the player moves very slow but I like the graphics and the use of lighting and audio to set the mood.

I was able to consume a corps! Very nice music, graphics and mood. The protagonist moves slowly, but that's OK. What I couldn't figure out was how to locate corpses...

Was not clear to me what I could do. What is the blue bar for, why do I walk so slow. Music and atmosphere was good.

Movement is quite slow, but great mood and creepy setting. Not sure entirely what was going on though, the game wasn't quite clear on that.

It wasn't so clear to me how I was supposed to consume corpses. I reached a place where there were police officers and I just disapeared.

However, you did managed to make a creepy mood ! Good job.

Interesting mood but I didn't quite understand the feeding system (space didn't work i think) nor why everything was so slow

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.
