Shapeshifting Goddess

by MegaBrutal - Compo Entry

This is about a Shapeshifting Goddess who is out to find her true form.
Passes the Bechdel test!

HTML5 game, made with Phaser.

The game uses the Ubuntu Monospace font, which can be found here, along with the license details: http://font.ubuntu.com. Note: you don't actually have to download this font, your browser should automatically do it since it is redistributed with the game. Also, if you have Ubuntu, you have this font by default, and this is the default font in terminal windows.

I had a hard time playing this game because when i hit spacebar the whole webpage scrolls down and puts the game out of view :^/

The humor is what brings this game up a notch.
Otherwise, nice work! =)

@monkeybit29: Thanks for your feedback! Theoretically, it should be fixed now. Just be sure to click into the game before playing.
@glaze_96: Thank you! :)

Aren't you supposed to provide source code if you participate in compo?

@edve98: Since it's a HTML5/JavaScript game which is not obfuscated in any way, the source code is readily viewable through the browser. (Through right click, View source or something similar option.) Additionally, I plan to set up a Git repository with GitWeb later – if that happens, the project will show up here: http://git.megabrutal.com/. Note that this is a very busy week at my job, so I don't get much free time per day to work on extra stuff for the game.

This was less of a game, and more of a story. That's not a bad thing, it just felt too linear. no fail objectives, just go forward, read dialogue, and hit space.

I wasn't able to get past one of the guys no matter what form I was in. I like the concept but found it to be kind of boring.

I liked how the goat at the end and guard slid around back to the start and bumped into each other after I flew over the goat as a bird and pushed it. :P

A bit too linear, but still got a smile out of me.

Felt like I was reading a story instead of playing a game. I don't feel like I had any effect on it, since it didn't take much thought on my part.

I liked your games, it was one of the best games I played. And this game is really good. It would be a little better if it had sound. It's a pretty good game still.

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.
