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

Angsthase

by Fantasieleben - Jam Entry

You look like a cute bunny. But you really are a monster!! Do monstrous things, but operate from the shadows, so no ones perception is mislead by your cute appearance.

Increase global fear level by activating objects in the world. But as soon as anyone sees you the fear level is reset to zero.

Activate objects by pressing 'SPACE' whilst touching them.
Move forward pressing 'W'.
Use A and D to orient your body, but not whilst moving forward - you are too anxious to change direction whilst moving.

This game uses the NEEDSIM Life simulation that Tilman is working on for the Unity Asset Store. We have a website, although it is still under construction: http://www.fantasieleben.com.

The post-jam version fixes some major issues.

Angsthase is German for "Scare inducing bunny"

Nice idea, cool bunny animation, but the controls for changing the direction react too slow for my taste.

Can you provide a download of the post Jam version?
I have Chrome so I cannot run the Webplayer...

Interesting, like your take on the theme, weirdly scary!

Thanks for the feedback! We fixed many things in the post build version, including the orientation speed. Furthermore we now made builds of the post-jam version for Windows, May and Linux.

Has a really odd feel to it, mostly with the controls, as well as how the whole thing plays out. Still, an interesting and challenging game!

I really like this take of the stealth-hunting type monster games. Great concept, there is a lack of polish but I can see the potential in this.

Thanks for all the feedback. We fixed a bug in the movement controls, hopefully it feels better now!

Good concept and idea! The controls are a bit awkward. The scare sounds is actually scary xD

I loved seeing the bunny get progressively scarier on the "fear meter". Nice touch!

I think this game would be greatly improved with simple 8-directional movement. That way, if I get discovered, it feels like I did something wrong strategically, rather than feeling like I didn't master the controls properly.

Really cool take on the theme overall! It's a creative twist on the stealth genre. I like the non-violent idea behind it; you aren't trying to kill anyone, and being discovered doesn't "kill" you like in most stealth games.

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.
