Morko

by solkar - Jam Entry

Morko is a gentile monster (maybe you cannot see but it's wearing a bow tie) that loves eating children alive. But Morko must save some good for the winter, pushing some pesky children into the pit.

Use your fright bombs to corner children into the pit.

[Cotrols]

- W, A , S , D: control movement
- SPACE: drop bomb

[Notes]

This is a really rough prototype. Half of the original ideas are not included but you probably know how this works.
Level2 is broken until I can fix one bug.
Monster gets easily stuck into walls.

I took the music from a Unity's demo project.

Really great concept, shame you didn't get it totally finished. I like the hand drawn art style you started with too, the monster looks really cool!

The concept is great and so was that small amount of art you had!

Your sprites were well drawn, but everything else was kind of bland by comparison. It was hard to play because of the collision detection, and how hard it is to fit into the corridors.

seems like it could be expanded into something interesting, but only having one level to go off isnt much. -Otis

Apart from the rough edges you've mentioned before such as the collision, I like the Bomberman-inspired mechanics. If you do manage to fix those bugs in the future, you should definitely expand on the idea.

I really like the concept and the art, just a shame the second level was so broken! Also, the monster getting stuck was quite annoying. Shame it was broken, I would have played more!

Too bad that this isn't more polished because I can see the potential. The controls and wall collisions made it nearly impossible to move.

Interesting concept, the sprite art is really good, shame there's not a lot to it yet.

You had something going in the right direction but getting stuck in walls is what you should fix before creating the rest of the game!

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.
