Monster Creator

by EverlessDrop41 - Jam Entry

This is my submission for Ludum Dare 33 - I lost heart towards the end due to a bug in Unity so it's not as good as it could be, but I thought I'd upload what I'd done

Had to plug in the larger keyboard that has 2 control keys just to play it, but it was amusing. It's difficult when you have to look at the keyboard and move your hands to reach all the controls, though. xD

It was a fun little proof of concept :)

Yup, concept is nice. Maybe it would be a little too slow when playing on larger levels, but with well-thought puzzles, like mirrors reflecting your lazers, etc, it could be interesting !

I do like the concept, and I can see the effort you've put into it. I think the controls are a bit fiddly, but it's got the makings of something that could be pretty cool! Don't be too disheartened. :-)

nice proof of concept, controls need work though (altough honestly It will probably play ok on a pad even with this controls)

Shame you had that bug, I would've liked to see what you can do with this concept. Definitely an interesting idea

I like the idea you were going for. A sorta twin stick shooter in this vain would be really cool. It sucks that a unity bug stopped for but I really like the idea. Also since Mac doesn't have 2 control buttons you can't fully control both arms so you might want to think about changing it to command on mac if you could.

The browser version doesn't react to any controls on Saf/FF/Chrome before I go fullscreen and then the Q/E buttons didn't work :( I still managed to get to the end through some creative jumps tho. Interesting idea, but indeed, not finished. Hope they fix these bugs so you submit more next time.

The controls were really unresponsive and I could barely play.

Too bad for that bug in unity. I know just how nasty a limit we didn't know in our tool can be when an idea is being implemented(A bug or not), just hope you can report that bug to Unity Technologies soon to get it fixed.

And a shame it stopped you from finishing it. I really enjoy what you did with the concept, with a good freedom and time you could have honestly made it skyrocket. As it is now it is indeed a proof of a nice concept, the controls may not be as tight as they would be in a finished product but still it is something to be proud of. Can't wait for the bug to be finished and you to grow interested in the custom monster idea again.

Cool and interesting idea. Good job.

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.
