Dungeon Master

by cameronpenner - Jam Entry

Dungeon Master is a game where the player designs dungeons to kill the hero. It may feel a bit like a tower defense game, but more dungeony!

Really good strategy and mechanics and nicely done overall! A bit annoying tho he guy got stuck in corners easily and then I had to restart completely. Very nice work tho! :)

Not bad. But I have a bug on the second wave. The enemy is not going further and hanging on the wall. But seems to make fun :)

When I start the game I din't understand I had to do but after I get it and now I think i've a game to play once in a while. This is a super game concept!

Idea was good, lots of great potential, but you could easily get the hero stuck on an corner.

Music was pretty bad too.

Worked fine here (Win 7). Missed some counterbalance to just making a killbox. Like the overall concept!

A very nice game. Maybe a bit too easy, but fun nonetheless. I like it!

The colors weren't really coming through on my laptop. It made it very difficult to play (since you HAD to put things in certain places). What I could do in the game was really neat. Nice job.

Hey, it's the annoying question asker from your stream.

Had a lot of fun, really liked watching the Hero get pummelled. First time, he did get stuck on a corner, but it worked fine besides that.

Music and graphics are nice, too.

Thanks for the time you spend making GM Tutorials, they really helped kickstart my time in GM, all those years ago :)

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.
