Inner Monsters

by psypol - Jam Entry

In "Inner Monsters" your goal as a "Monster" is to ruin people's lives.
Explore the city and find out what "inner monsters" each inhabitant grows within themselves...
Then try to find an object or thoughts that could solve their problems
the wrong way.

You have a limited time to be as Monstrous as you can.
Each life ruined brings you more time to act.
Try to ruin as many lives as you can before the time runs out and you
return to your monstrous void.

This is a really excellent idea and excellently executed. Artwork is great and I like the way their face turns evil when you give them what they want. Felt really bad but I guess thats the point.

I love the idea and the artwork! It's really sadistically satisfying to play and the time limit keeps you playing it over and over. Great work!

The best game in this ludum dare! Played it for a long time! After a while it got very hard to navigate.

Great idea. Graphics are cool. It's weird when events are repeating, but i enjoyed it.

I'm very impressed how well polished the game is. There's multiple music (and they're pretty good for a game jam too!), the take on the theme is pretty clever, there's a lot of different situations (even though I'd love to have different objects for the same situation) and it's fun to play.
Very well done guys!

Timer is too aggressive, and you get too little for successful attempts. Additionally, there were a lot of combos I tried that didn't work. Other than that, the game was really good.

Please include a Pause button in your future games, I was really far with +100 time and then I had to leave shortly...
It gets really hectic later on and it makes it feel like extrem Memory, I like that. Really great idea.

Great concept!

Really cool use of the theme! I included it in part 10 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

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 ( 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.
