You are the monster

by Arowx - Compo Entry

Your day begins with a visit to new local Biotechnology Laboratory.

It should be another boring day right?

Keys:
WASD to move, Space to "Jump", RMB/Ctrl Extrude a Pod, LMB/Shift Grow

Note the Web version is best played in Firefox (at least it works best for me in Firefox, then Edge and is slowest in Chrome).

Found the Audio a little grinding but other than that seems like a cool game

The Web version is unplayable for me but the windows version is fine.

I tried to go cow tipping for little while before turning.

Cool, I like the sequence at the start, even if it doesn't work right on the WebGL version. The audio is a bit much here, seems like everything has been overdriven to max volume. It's fun to start, but could use some opposition later into the game.

First person view was really cool. I like the square graphics.

Ambitious use of physics, nice idea though I was a little confused at how to control the red blob thing :)

I liked how you made some spheres look creepy.

I used the WebGL version. It has some issues at first, but after about a minute of being the blob, the frame rate suddenly bumped up and just smoothed out. No problems after that. Cool game. I like the comic at the beginning. The sound effects are a little jarring as the.. actually. scrap everything I just said. I thought this was a Jam game. You did really good!

I had a problem on Chrome/Mac in that the game didn't capture the mouse, thus I could only turn so far... basically not possible to play as is

The most awesome part is that you can just hold space and flyyyy. The physics of demolition is great!

Great demolition. Audio could've been better, but it was fun destroying the building.

Total destruction! Agreed it was pretty bad playing in Chrome, surprisingly. Audio gets a bit annoying after a while.

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.
