Hungry Waters

by MAnimal - Compo Entry

Greatings from Czech Republic. This is my first Ludum Dare and I am very happy for finishing my game. At the start of gamejam I didn´t know if i can finish large game, so I decide to make smaller one. After I did my game, I realized why everyone use pixelart graphic in 2D. It´s just look better in 2D.

In my game you are the underbridge monster and you have hunger. If you will not eat you will die. So you must hit the mainstone under the bridge pillar and fling off the people walking over the bridge. You must also watch out to not eat people with bad thoughts.

Controls are simple, use arrow keys to move in water and when you are dead you will restart game by holding "R" key. Esc to quit.

I hope you will like my game and you will enjoy it.

PS: best experience in 640x480 in window

Bye :)

Funny and simple. Red things live too long compare to black people.
P.S. Wonder how you made that "nom nom nom" sound.

Nice touch on the sound effects. Good adherence to the theme and overall simple but stable and nice. Could have done with bit more gameplay, would have been nice if the water physics was more effective.

As I got the hang of it I enjoyed it, Also found a bit funny the dark humor in the game.
Btw, when you mean "hold a key" you mean "press a key", because as I see that should be the way you check for keypress (Input.GetKeyDown(keycode))
Congrats on your first LD! :D

I liked the music a lot. It made it feel lighthearted and cosmopolitan, like the monster decided to take a trip to another country and see the sights.

It was hard to avoid the..brains?...of the pink people once they were in the water. It took me a few seconds to realize you aren't supposed to eat them because I thought the "Ow!" was them and not me.

I liked the sound effects and the music. It was really creative. It took some time for me to find out how can I get the people fall down from the bridge. Nice entry :)

good fit for the theme, could of used a little more water to make escaping purples a bit more interesting

Nice game concept! Simple but very original. Liked the graphics. Sound effects were great!, made me laugh :)
The music was nice but didn't fit the game in my opinion.
I think that overall you have a great concept for a casual game, perhaps adding some more gameplay concepts would make this really great.

Heh cool monster-theme. I like the drunken people drawings. And the music is great! Gameplay was cool, quite hard to avoid the bad thoughts! Well done!

Welcome to LD!
Great audio! BGM gives a nice feel and sfx is great xp
Art is cool and mechanics are fun and original, although there could be more to it. I just didn't get the people with bad thoughts... Why can't I eat them? Why are they pink? Why they leave a little blob?... Maybe I'm overthinking xp
Anyway, great job!

A pretty nice game! The limited space and the moving bad thoughts made what appeared very simple quite challenging. The visuals and audio are obviously not the best, but are very okay for a first timer. Good job overall!

Congratulations on your first ludum-dare-submission :)

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.
