Alien Murder Simulator

by MikeEnoch - Jam Entry

Kill all the humans and cocoon them on board the ship before making your escape. Don't worry too much about getting killed, as long as you've cocooned at least one victim you'll be reborn!

​Built in Unity. Fullscreen disabled by default, with resolution set to 1920x1080. Only supports 16:9 aspect ratios.

Music from Kevin MacLeod's excellent collection - http://incompetech.com/​

Alien and human models and anims by: http://ludumdare.com/compo/author/wallmasterr/

Controls are shown on the title screen (tap to pick up a body, tap to drop it - I know, should have been hold and release!).

Enjoy!

Pretty cool! Good atmosphere with the minimal style, nice mechanic with the extra lives too.

This is a solid stealth game! The vision cones worked super well, and the level design was interesting and fun. I'm not sure it was necessary to require you to hit the enemies multiple times to kill them. I think the challenge in sneaking up on them was by far the most fun part, rather than the actual act of attacking.

Very nice little game, I love the respawn mechanic.

Nice idea but the AI was too easy but also way too unfair. I attacked and they didn't see me but at my first hit they instantly shoot at me, which is obviously not what a human would do.

Really cool, I loved the respawn mechanic.
I was a bit disappointed that there was no end, but it was great anyways :)

I'm totally waiting for this game's post-jam! I like how your extra life depends on how many pods you made.

Solid stealth mechanics. Best feature is dragging the corpses of the slain to avoid detection. Would recommend.

Interesting stealth monster roguelike game. Pretty good atmosphere. I love the humans models.

Dragging corpses is surprisingly cathartic... ;) Thanks for the kind comments everyone!

Whoa! Nice mood going there! Gameplay is pretty much solid and this "cocoon and respawn" thing is really awesome! :D

The game felt a bit too short, but you got everything right in her, sir! Are you planning on making a full version of this? :P

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.
