Wings for Ska Li

by Dining Philosopher - Jam Entry

This game is a mix between snake and a platformer.
You can use 'Z' to change shape. Use this shapeshifting power to complete missions and puzzles. Can you find your wings?

Unfinished and slow, but playable.
Doesn't seem to work in Internet Explorer, Chrome seems to be the best choice.

Comments are welcome. :)

(PS: you can mute the music with the button in the top right)

Great stuff! Made it to the top. The leftmost sheep thing got a bit annoying, until I realised that I could just make a cage, instead of a staircase that he wouldn't climb. A bit more performance would be nice, but it's fun as is, and definitely has potential.

Nice idea, took me like 10 minutes to save one sheep, but pretty nice, and relaxing music, decent graphics, good overall (Y), good job!

Unfortunately, couldn't properly play it because you mapped the controls to Z. Which makes it difficult with a european keyboard. :(

VERY elegant gameplay, it is surprisingly fun and flexible. I like the lo-fi asthetic and the nice music as well.

great game and interesting take on the snake theme. I liked how you can shape him to solve puzzles. I couldn't figure out the 3 purple circle puzzle to open the gate. Good game overall. a bit slow.

Great Game! Took a while to figure out the bit with the sheep, but great job!

That's a very cool idea for a sneak game, but the game did not ran smoothly for me so this is something you should look into when the judging ends.

Really cool, great take on the theme. Also, surprisingly difficult. I blame the shnoogles /?/

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.
