Psycho

by WASDMagician - Jam Entry

You're a horror movie psycho.

You've been taking out the innocents of hollywood for a long time, this is the real deal though.

This unfinished level... I mean building... is swarming with armed guards who can take you out in a second.

Stealth is key, make sure you aren't seen and try walking (hold SHIFT) so you don't make too much noise, that's a sure way to attract attention.

You can also use the red doorways to enter your secret passages and hiding places (how do you think we get everywhere we do?).

WASD to move, left click to attack.

Take out as many people as you can, good luck!

Yeah was nice but I think the way you attack them is weird , or maybe I don't get it but I was attacking 10 times and only the last time the guy I was following died.

I can walk through walls and throw up my hands to kill people. **** the police. Fun: 4/5

Would be cool if the guards would react to their dead buddies.

Andrew, that's something I considered but it took me until about 6 hours before the jam ended to get the prolonged death animations in so there wasn't enough time :(

Well made game, like how hard it was :D.
Good to see this fleshed out into a full game !

I like the setting, the visuals work. The movement controls could use some work though. Quite a challenging game, i liked it!

The controls are a little floaty, but the game looks really good and I loved the fact that you can pass through some walls

I had a hard time figuring out who I was controlling at first as I spawned inside a very small room and a bad camera angle. When I first got out it was quite fun for a while.

Wow, visrep and sfx are great! But, man, I can't get very far. Need to move faster and hit shift to slow down (hopefully I'm playing it right).

I almost jumped out of my seat the first time I was shot. Nice work.

Always suck when you can't finish a game, but that was a nice effort. Models and animations were fine. I found it very difficult and couldn't work out how to attack the guards ...

Cool mood, but way too difficult. Lighting was nice and reflections too!

sikosis: you have to click and actually COLLIDE with the guards, you know that bit in horror films where the main baddie jumps out and grabs someone? Essentially that's what you're trying to do.

I felt red walls were a bit of cheating - enemies could not follow me there, so with enough patience I could easily pick them one by one; on the other hand it could be a fun concept - playing as a monster that utilizes various hidden shortcuts to kill people. Animations were pretty good!

I killed everyone! That was hard actually, very challenging!
You can be stuck in the walls though, so when you need to jump on someone and then you got stuck its like panick time "oh god get inside quick!"
I ended up with 45 health point while having the last one wandering around, it was hard.

Nice idea about hiding in those red elements! It was hard, but that makes the game engaging.

Was a bit glitchy, but really nice concept! I included it in part 31 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/smH_qgd8pMY

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.
