Over The Course Of A Day

by Blobo - Compo Entry

"Monster" is a reletive term.

You play the role of a big buff guy who ruins the day of jimmy, a young child.

From 6 in the morning to midnight, you get to spill his milk, ruin his social life, and more!

If you're stuck, try clicking things. that always helps.

or if you REALLY can't figure out what to do, i made a video

*Play with fantastic graphics, or you go stupid-fast. this is my 2nd ludum dare, so i just learned about this. you have been warned!*

for those of you who got the error, it's fixed.

does not run. Unity executable incorrectly packaged -the Data folder needs to be present...

Nice music, would be nice to have check points rather than restarting the game.

Silly, I like it! Nice audio, and I did feel like a monster, so, well done.

Neat idea, clever take on the theme. A lot of the solutions were clever, but I wish there was a way to restart the level.

Fantastic game, I really felt like an asshole. I agree that the only thing that could be added is a checkpoint system

Aug 27, 2015 @ 11:42pm

The character moves like insanely fast on my pc, almost unplayable. Like I acidentally press a direction for a split second too long and the character goes flying offscreen and won't come back. I like the concept though and how it mixes up a bunch of different mini game type ideas.

Really simple and funny. You do feel like a jerk playing it but the music keeps you pumped to continue. Could have done with checkpoints, wasn't so funny replaying it all to get back to where you were.

Good music and very funny. I had some trouble with moving incredibly fast though.

It did play for me, but some of the scenes were glitchy and unresponsive. It was an all right idea. The best parts were the humor and look of it.

Oh god, poor kid ! But that was fun... ^^ and I love the music ! It was a little difficult to move the monster (he moved so fast).
Great game and nice job !

Tip to future players: Setting graphics quality to "Fantastic" might slow the game down enough to make it playable.

anyway, I have only one thing to say about this game
O'DOYLE RULES!

Very simple, but I spent most of the game smiling, does that make me a bad person?

Ooooh gooood this is AWESOME! I kinda had to figure out the controls (A + D + left mouse btn, for future players), but then it's really great funny story! Great job sir!

Psst, I've made a game with story too, check it out if you want :)

Thanks for letting us play your game!

What I liked:

I found a couple of the little vignettes genuinely funny, I particularly liked driving away in the bus and punting Jimmy off the hill. Also enjoyed the mix of mechanics that you attempted, like the rhythm-game bit.

Areas to improve:

Like a few people have mentioned, it would be really good to have a checkpoint system, so if you fail to complete a scene, you could have another shot straight away.

Congrats on your second Ludem Dare! Well done!

I was skeptical at first, but I admit I grinned through the whole thing. Liked the girl's reaction too. Great creativity!

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.
