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

Who's the Monster!

by TeamCosmitronique - Jam Entry

In this game, you play as agent tasked with finding who among the suspects is a shape-shifting monster. We interpreted the theme as an accusatory statement and decided to build a game on that.

This was our first Ludum Dare. We had a great time making it and hope you will enjoy playing it.

Had some problems with understanding some of clues (refuses to stand, doesn't want red anywear near it).

Aside from that overall like with innovative idea.

Loved the look, kinda similar to 'fingered' which recently came out. Not really 'you are the monster' but super fun to play, loved the sound and art.

Very pretty game, when the hint involves left or rights, is it my left and right or theirs?

Cool game, really enjoyed it.
I like how you interpreted the theme.
I guess this could be easily extended to procedurally generating a lot of interesting levels.

pretty cool game & concept I hope you guys make a bigger game out of this... I can tell it has a lot more potential... a lot more ways to solve who is the monster by clues. Good use of theme and very innovative.

Got 3 out of 5. The last one changed the hair color and I pointed him, but it was just a regular person :(

Nice deduction game...
I wanted more levels!
Good graphics.
One thing: when we shuffle, the hair colors can change, it's weird and harder to memorize who is who...

Aug 29, 2015 @ 6:11pm

This is great. Definitely needs more monsters though!

Aug 30, 2015 @ 1:17pm

Great visuals and concept is pretty innovative! Congrats with a debut!

Reminds me of those logic problems on standardized tests- but a lot more fun!

Sep 5, 2015 @ 11:32am

Pretty challenging, especially for the colour blind like me :( Also didn't really get some of the puzzles: refuses to stand next to green, but when i shuffled everyone wound up standing next to green at some point. Oh wait i get it the guy in green was the only one not standing next to green so it must've been him. Duh!

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.
