Woodland Therapy

by TEAM-TIGER - Jam Entry

Welcome to Woodland Therapy

Hold down the letter key displayed above the animals that appear to select them.
Then press space to... Make Friends.
Selecting multiple animals of the same colour and type gives you combos.
Points are deducted for animals that get away so don't wait too long!

And remember, the woods can be dangerous for children.


We used environment models from a unity store asset pack called "13 Cute Forest Animals Pack" by GriN Multimedia and audio clips and sprites from a few sources. aside from that all done by us.

Hilarious. Played one round of this and I felt like a monster for sure. Really creative use of the theme!

Interesting mechanics with a twist. I loved the colourful graphics and I...I made a lot of friends :-O

Maybe shooting just by pressing the letter would have made the game faster and more fun. The delay between shooting and making a friend doesn't help. Nice game though.

Some way to "make friends" :p simple concept, well executed, kinda reminded me of typing of the dead

There isn't much challenge here. I was expecting a bit more typing. The graphics are cute, even though the blood splatters don't seem to fit in with the rest of the assets.

I really like the art, but the game is not that fun. I thought it would be a typing game, but then after the first one, I'm like ok, what's next, and it just stays the same. Feel like there's some potential that was wasted, because the art, lighting and animations are good.

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.
