I Ate Uman

The Game

It's the end of the world. YOU finally made it. Zombies everywhere. Almost. Some stupid Humans are still alive and menacing your zombipocalipse. Help your greenish friends to win one more time !

They are quite stupid, so keep the orders simple : a left clic will produce a scared scream that will attract zombies as surely as cheese attracts mice. A right clic on the opposite will scare them the hell off away from that nasty sawchain noise.

There are different versions of the game (Windows, Linux, Mac OS).

/!\ /!\ /!\ Please do note that we only tested Windows release. Recent feedbacks seem to show that Mac OS version is not really playable, sorry about that. But we are working hard to fix it !

It's weird when zombie or humans disappear on the edge of map.

Hi thanks for your review. Could you tell which platform you are running ?
On Windows the zombies and humans should come back from the other side of the map (like in Pac man).

Cool !
The 3D looks nice, may be a closer camera with an angle could be better to see it ?

Interesting gameplay concept but I think it could have been better realized. Also it took a bit too long for the humans to appear.

I would like to see this overlaid on a Google Map satellite image!

Pretty fun concept, but it doesnt really give a feeling of progress while playing. I dont know what I am trying to achieve other than infecting humans.

Also the sound effects are pretty annoying since they trigger every time you click. If you click a lot its all like "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa".

@ohsqueezy Yes I know it can be annoying ! We put the sound on every click since it's the sound which is supposed to attract or "scare" the zombies... Maybe we should have added a "sound" opt out option.

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.
