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

$tupicl M@nst3r #004

by Chaosmore - Jam Entry

This is a followup game made in 48 hours for my Stupid Monster series, I have been making games about monsters so when the theme coincidentally matched the monster theme, I might as well make one for the series.

Eerie platformer. Probably not for kid. Not for the faint of heart either.


Read the help file for instructions.


For shader error:
You probably have to update your direct X End User runtime, or else shaders will not compile correctly.

Incredible. Really, this is amazing. Kind of disturbing, but that's a great thing! Congratulations!

SPOOKY.

While a simple idea, the art, music and way the game was handled creates a very interesting and focused product.

I will also add an option for player to switch off shader via ini in post fix, though it's highly recommended to have shader turned on.

Wow! Pretty psycho cthulhu dark thing :D I really like style of this hame. Also, that idea with eating body parts was pretty cool! Really solid entry!

This is so damn creepy, ti reminds me of yume nikki for some reason. I guess it is because of the weird imagery. Anyway, this game was quite cool, and the gameplay basic but fun. I like it!

I love how you used the colours. Scary game, but it has a nice feeling. Everything combines perfectly . Congrats

"Your adversary, Chaosmore the Omniscience" - not an author avatar at all. *whistling*

The yay:
- original handicapping mechanics
- various enemies
- mood

The nay:
- when I hit the questionmark block from below, no mushrooms nor coins appear! >:(

Somewhat interesting quirky entry.

Weird game, with an interesting concept. Why ask for money on a game jam entry?

Gee, that was weird. Spooky as f... I loved that the enemies differ on restarts. Didn't manage to end the game though. But I'll certainly return to it later.

Creepy as hell, I had no clue what was going on or what anything was, the flickering effect was a nice touch and the discordant sound added to the mood. well done

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.
