Roaring Randy Reptilian Playboy

by Arskiainen - Jam Entry

Roaring Randy is on a city break looking for love. He won't be finding any, but maybe in a DLC. Unleash your lizardly vigor on the city of New New Temp in the mean while.

I wanted to get some animations and stuff in so I went with the jam.

Maybe next time I'll try and get some fancy menus and scoring stuff.

I love the buildings breaking into bits, and the monster model could definitely have been awesome will a little texturing and eyes!

Not much of a game as of right now IMO, but it definitely opens up the way for something really cool!

This is very similar game to mine, though I use way simpler graphics (I've never modeled before)

Fun like a toy, feel like a kid knocking down blocks!

I walked on one or two buildings and suddenly the FPS went to 0 and the whole map exploded. That was interesting. I like the sounds of the teeny tiny tanks and soldiers. Though rather simple, some people may assert that this is as entertaining as the recent officially released game. Bravo.

I loved that the humans(white cubes) ran away.
i would have liked it if the game was a bit faster or if you could charge into a building

Smashing buildings was fun - hopefully Randy will find love someday.

The core gameplay mechanics though simple worked surprisingly well. Was very fun playing as a huge monster and squishing those tiny pedestrians. Nice audio too. Really excellent proof of concept, would be interested to play an expanded version.

Nice reptile model, would be fun with some score/goal and timelimit or something, and some sounds :)

The Monster has a good "heavy feel" to it

Destroying a city and scaring the townspeople is pretty fun! Wishing there were both a scoring & threat element in the game to make for a challenge & a reason to keep coming back for more.

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.
