Sea Hunter

by scottredrup - Jam Entry

It's badly broken (well sort of, sometimes it'll work!!) Originally I went for the comp, but due to circumstances I've changed over! At least I did it in 48 hours though :D

The idea was that you had to feed the shark as much as possible and then before the time runs out i.e the anchor is raised, you have to try and tear the ship above apart.

And yet, this weekend didn't end great! However there are at least some nice art bits going on, and I've definitely learnt a huggggge amount!!

Leave me some feedback here or to me on Twitter @skardrup

Fun little game. I had to choose a resolution that matched my screen resolution to be able to click the start button

Unique art style. Fun little game. Make sure to adapt the resolution of the game.

Unfortunately it seemed broken for me: whenever I clicked to attack the ship it the shark swam downwars somehwere and did nothing. I also don't get what fish I should ead and how many - not sure what the number in the shark's mouth means. I really live the art style though, very fresh and funny. Would be great if you gave them some 2 frame animations. I would love to play it again once you fixed the bug.

Hey, congratulations on getting done, apologies if my dev stream was a bit too distracting at times :) The artwork has a pretty nice, consistent style running through it but, yes, as you mentioned there are bugs in the game, you've got a solid start on what could become a great fun game, should you chose to develop it further post Ludum Dare here. Just needs some glitches sorted out and some audio, I could always do some Voice overs for ya ;)

How long time do I have to click the ship? And the text is to slow.

Hrmm... the shark moves a little too fast, and there are still some graphical errors. Good job on making a tutorial sequence and menu though - that's something I need to start doing in my entries...

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.
