Minotaur

by Picking a username is hard - Compo Entry

A fun time waster. Go around and kill as many prisoners as you can before the time is up. Then, based on your score, you'll get to read some of the most hilarious minotaur (half man, half bull) puns and jokes you'll ever read in your life! Seems pretty awesome doesn't it?

Made with Unity 5, Gimp, BoscaCeoil & Garage Band.

Can't download. Perhaps zip it? I tried the Windows version.

Neat little game, found the messages on the floor added to the mood. I also found the message that says "hi :)"- did I find an easter egg?

My only problem with the game was that it was hard to find people to kill, and the AI was shallow.

Banging tunes, though!

Web version worked for me.
Nice concept. Getting a hint, where your victims are would be nice. Just a general direction or something.

The music is kinda nice, but I guess, it would become annoying rather quickly. Also it's louder than the dying sounds.

Still nice game.

I loved the atmosphere with the music and the map. I think a minimap or an arrow towards people would help out immensively though.

The music really makes this game shine, great work! I think a higher spawn rate and faster player speed would have improved flow, but it still plays solid. Nice little tweak with the messages.

It's always fun to run around and eat people. Graphics COULD use work but it was a great play, and I loved it. I also loved the messages written in blood.

The puns were top notch. Enjoyed dancing through the labyrinth to the great tunes.

This is a fun game. I got 900, I'm not sure if that's a good score or not, but I enjoyed getting to it. The audio was nice at first but got repetitive and annoying by the end. Good job!

Finding the prisoners felt like luck, but chasing and crushing them was entertaining. I like it!

Cool game! I included it in part 26 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/3UFkqjoD81E

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.
