Monster Discrimination Simulator

by yokcos700 - Compo Entry

Try PgUp/PgDown

You are a monster who needs milk for its breakfast cereal. However, everyone in the world is racist and is also a monster hunter. Gather tools to defend yourself from the people of the world and also get some money to buy the milk. Things aren't free in this world, I hope ya know!

NB: Some paths are impossible.

I'm sorry for putting 'Simulator' in the title.

Incredibly difficult, but crazy satisfying. A great metroid style progression, maybe a bit too hard too fast ;)

The difficulty on this is insane, even with the shield I always die, but I want to progress even more. Really creative idea, especially with the random palettes you can change between.

This was so cool. The aesthetic is really cool (and you can change it) and the game is super difficult. You have to deal with not being able to survive more than one shot, and you can't really avoid the shots. It was really fun and very polished!

I hate it. And Love it.
Nice retro graphic, damn funny slow-motion deaths and monocle+cilinder hunters.
Great. Well done!

Loved the art and animations. The monster walk was delightful. I liked that each room became a puzzle due to the relentlessness of the enemies. I also loved that you can change the color palette. Great game!

The game is very awesome, the art is fascinating but those guys are like "Billy the Kid" shooting me and they broke a bit the mood

Ye gods, this game is hard. You managed to get a lot of challenge out of a really basic set of rules.

Who knew being a monster was so tough?

Yup, very challenging and kind of cute. I found it didn't run very smoothly in Firefox. What was up with page up and down, was that just for looks?

Sep 12, 2015 @ 1:20am

Interesting game! I included it in part 25 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/OjNOJwfYtGQ

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.
