TIGIY (There is Good In You)

by Elenesski - Jam Entry

Perhaps you read about it in the Herald, saw it on-line on Wired or maybe it's being repeated non-stop on CNN! Now's your chance to play the game everybody is talking about ... TIGIY, pronounced Tiggy, it stands for "There Is Good In You".

Background ...

"Throughout your life as a monster, you brought death to those who would bring you harm.

It's time for you to use your skills of evil and protect the most innocent of souls from the peril they want to undertake.

Are you ready for a challenge?"

This is my first Ludum Dare entry. I wasn't even supposed to participate this weekend, but all my plans fell through. I started mid-Saturday afternoon. I was going to submit this as a solo effort, then I read the rules. Everything I did in the game, is my work, except for the animal small graphics/animations and all the sound effects.

Anyway, thanks to the Calgary Game Developers, for play testing and your suggestions, you guys rock!

(edited to include unity web player version)

Solid game! The intro screen has a LOT of text to digest, which is overwhelming at first, but the game is fun once you get into it. Good job!

Interesting concept!

Congratulations on completing your first Dare!

I'm not sure (can someone else clarify), but I think you're allowed to enter into the compo with a few borrowed assets, as long as you don't enter yourself in those catagories.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the experience!

I got a good 10 minutes of fun! Very nice work.

An interesting game, but the game is very easy if you don't mind waiting a long time for your points to go up (you can greatly overuse powers and pushing)

Someone else said interesting concept, but so do I. Interesting concept.

The game is incredibly addictive, although I'm terrible at it! The sounds were maybe a tad off, being slightly weird to my ear. All in all, surprisingly addictive and very enjoyable game.

I liked the concept. I think it could make a perfect mobile game.

I liked the mechanic that lets you crash the cars into each other, you could make a full game based on that! I didn't felt like the powers were necessary in the game though, because although they take points away from you, they were way too strong.

@bigbuggames ... I thought about changing the entire points mechanism to be more about how many levels you can get the cat through ... a special power would have a cool down, rather than points. But I hear what you are saying; I noticed that around level 12-14 it was almost impossible to keep a positive score.

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.
