Chicken Lord

by TheGCJammers - Jam Entry

Cultis is being bullied in his farm so as a revenge... he is calling the Apocalypse!

Of course for this you need demons and to summon a demon... you need blood. As Cultist cannot actually harm anyone (he is too weak) he decides to kill chickens and get their blood instead.

Objetives: Collect Blood and when the Blood Bar is full, Summon a Demon going to the Altar. Break havoc being the Chicken Lord!

Psst: The Blue Bar represents your altar. If those chickens break it: Game Over. You can't summon Chickthulu with a broken altar!

Controls

Keyboard

Movement : WASD
Attack: J
Summon Demon: Space Bar (next to altar)

Xbox Controller (might work with other)

Movement: Left Joystick
Attack: A
Summon Demon: B (next to altar)

Controls felt better when I was not a demon so I end up not transforming at all :D Graphics are good but hitting doesn't feel like hitting because of animation delay. Since it's an arcade kind of game it is quite important.

Thats a really nice feedback! Maybe We could make the animation faster? Thanks!

The movement of the player is smooth and buggy. Its quite uncomfortable. Also the running animation is not syncronised.
The chicken movements are also weird :P

Anyway very cool graphics, idea and gameplay. Congrats!
(Im from spain too :O)

Ha ha this one's great! I love the demon and the hilarious chickens... it gets nice and tough after a while.

Maybe an aiming help would be a good idea?
Also it might help if the player would not collide with the chickens or if you would make the collisionhull of chickens bigger. Because sometimes I would just stand on top of them without being able to hit anything.

Keep up the good work!

Interesting game. I like the music in this a lot. Some of the controls were a bit awkward but bearable.

Hilarious Idea. But I don't understand why I get a gameover once I transform into the demon. Anyway great graphics, pitch and sound !

I prefer not being a demon, so I didn't transform. Nice entry.

I laughed out VERY loud when the demon showed up the first time

Nice graphics. I was a bit confuse at first because I didnt see that I could start the altar. Its prety fun, keep up the good work !

I liked the idea, but found the controls (on a keyboard) to be a bit clunky. Also, the demon was a bit underwhelming, considering he's the star of the show. Giving him a flashing intro and fancy moves would have added a lot.

Hahaha the game is funny and the gameplay is smooth!
The basic idea is really enjoyable, a little difficult to move with the deamon form!
Love the visual and sound!
Great work!

It's a good game. But it can be better. I just wanted to kill more chicks and you didn't let me. The altar dies too quickly, maybe you should gave it more health or I don't know. I just wanted to be demon more times than just once. To listen that badass music.

Hilarious game! The graphics are really good looking. Music is fine, controls are good. Simple but efficient game. Good job!

Don't know which mayor decided to have a demonic portal built right in the middle of his village, but that was definitely a neat move!
Joke apart, the concept was pretty cool. This "demon invocation" thing, really adds up with the theme. It's also really funny how you made chicken both victims and enemies :)
I agree with commodoreKid regarding animations, the visual feedback for attacks is not at its best, but the overall realization (music, graphics, controls) remains very impressive, and that is true from the main title to the game over.
Great entry!

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.
