MonsterChomper

by NathanFlurry - Compo Entry

The monsters need feeding! In a post-apoctolypictic world, the player of MonsterChomper is tasked with the duty of feeding the monsters. To do this, the player must launch human bodies into the air and into the monsters' mouths for them to chomp and gobble up.

This project features procedurally generated backgrounds and trees -- which are what I wasted most of my time on instead of music and level design.

Hope you enjoy it,
Nathan

Edit: I decided to turn this into a full game over the course of the next couple months. Stay posted here: http://chompgame.tumblr.com

Cool "angry bird" style game with a morbid twist. Kudos on the proc-gem background and trees. I bet those will come in handy for some future game.

Very cool game! Just lacking music. Should try make this into an app, Id buy it! Great work :)

Tried and tested gameplay - always fun, and you did a really nice implementation as well. Good job. Nice touch with the flying body "physics?" - added a nice touch to the feel. Good job overall.

@9.ar7k This was my first actual project in Unity, nor could I think of any good ideas to fit the theme, so I wanted to start simple -- but thank!. :)

Wonderful implementation of physical collisions.

The graphics are definitely something cool. It works well together. And the physics are amazing.

I would love a version of Angry Birds like yours. If the ragdoll was more human lookings, the blood more realistic, and the monsters scarier the game could be a perfect mobile game.
What was the procedural part? The tree, the level design? I can't figure out.
Last but not least, i took time to rate this game not because i'm a serious guy, but simply because it was FUN!
More BLOOD please!

nice graphics and physics, good works.
But i think your game is not really according to the theme.
Keep working on your game : )

Thank you so much for all the compliments and advice! I decided to begin developing this into a full product, due substantial support for it so far.
Keep yourself updated at the Tublr blog I created here: http://monsterchomper.tumblr.com

Thanks,

The physics engine works well, but the sounds are a bit anoying.

Too angrybirdish, be more original next time.

While it is basically Angry Birds, it features great procedural generation and physics. Good job!

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.
