Ludum Dare 33 — August 21st-24th, 2015 — Theme: You are the Monster

Back to Browse Entries


by lonkost - Compo Entry

Woustal is a puzzle game where you are a man cursed with lycanthropy. Each tile you move you transform to a werewolf. Every other tile you are human. Your goal is to eat all the peasants. Watch out for guards. First Ludum Dare submission. Let me know if anything doesn't work.

Only had time to make the three working puzzles. The system I made allows me to make more though!

A bit short but the concept is quit clever :)

It would be great to see the hardest level that can be done with those game mechanics :)

An interesting setup for a parity puzzle, but without a way of changing your characters parity there's not much in the way of puzzle there. Solidly made though, the about page was a nice touch.

I like the concept and the execution, but where are the levels? Though I do like that you didn't add filler levels without any new ideas - maybe this puzzle concept just doesn't go very far on its own.

A bit short. But really nicely done. But the mechanics has potentials. And it is based on a real board game, right?

Love the puzzle idea. Would be great to see this expanded into more levels. One bug(?), it may be the computer I'm on, but the click box for the tiles seemed to be low/left of the actual tiles.

Nice graphics, and a strong start to a puzzle game. I think if there was going to be more puzzles you'd need to switch up the core mechanic a bit (maybe a tile that skips a transformation -- essentially inverting the implied checker pattern).

The mechanics are promising, I would like to play some more complex levels :)

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I was thinking of expanding on the mechanics by adding surrounding rules, getting to exits after killing the peasants or more turns as werewolf/human. I'm pretty happy having never finished a project solo before.

Great concept but I wish there was more of it! Please make more of it!

It's a lovely game idea, the levels currently are very easy to complete as there is only one obvious route through them. I'd like to see it developed further, interesting use of the theme.

I liked the concept. First I started with a small resolution and with that I had to guess where I have to click(the buttons weren't on the right place).

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.
