Hero Slayer

by Captain Awesome - Jam Entry

It takes a village to create a monster.

WASD to move
Mouse to aim, mouse buttons to attack.


I'm also putting Windows, Mac, and Linux versions on GameJolt if you'd rather download them there.

Let me know if the Mac and Linux versions actually work. I couldn't actually test them.

Also, I didn't have enough time to make the fighting better, or to make an ending. So just play until you're bored, there is no ending.

It works fine on Mac OS X. Nice work! Very dark gothic feeling to the game.

Thanks for testing and playing! I'm glad it runs. The Mac version worried me because it was a little TOO easy to make, just a few menu clicks and 30 seconds to compile, another 30 to zip.

Played it on linux, worked great (actually one of the few games so far that I got working ;).
The intro cinematic was very nice and set the story well.
As you've already mentioned, the combat was a bit lacking but at least there was a great mood to the game. I enjoyed it!

Thanks for playing, glad to hear it ran well on linux!

I had to opt out of graphics and music categories because I didn't make them, they came from AudioBlocks, CGTextures, and the Unity Asset Store. I just played around with them until I got the look of Diablo without all those stupid numbers flying around during fights. :)

This could easily be made into a full length game, was captivated by the taste of story written in, nice feel, nice game!

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.
