Lycan

by lightsoda - Compo Entry

Decided after most of the first day was up, to go with a rather cliché theme, and this is the end result. Not a lot of content unfortunately.

You play with LMB and WASD, if I get requests to add other control schemes I'll look into it as a bug fix.

Html5 and Windows. Do I need to put this here >_>

I liked the graphics and audio alot, i am very dissapointed with how short the game is, and how there is no gameover, it atleast should have some kind of infinity mode that becomes harder and harder to compensate, and a health system

Quite a good-looking game! The controls were nicely executed and the clever level design allows for some pretty interesting crowd control. I'm not super familiar with werewolf-related mythos so I'm not sure but shoot-em-up doesn't feel like a good genre fit. I was hoping to maul people to death. But that might say more about me than about the game.

Love the music! The game definitely lacks some content. Good job on the graphics too!

The werewolf was under-powered, I though.
Seriously Metal music.

I really liked the graphics. Would have been nice with a bit more content to really get a feel for the mechanics

Quite a simple idea and pretty short, but the graphics and audio were well done.

Quite good game. I liked audio but couldn't guess how to dodge flying things

Big fan of the graphics, and I thought it had a great mood to it. My only wish is that I had a reason to use the werewolf. Good entry!

It's good-looking (and good sounding too), there is some enemies to kill and it's working, but... I didn't understand the point to shiftshape, because in lycan shape I can't do nothing special, while in wizard shape I can launch fireballs...

Very Metal! \m/

Fun game. I guess I didn't really get the transform part if I have to be critical about it.

But it was fun flying around shooting!

It was great! Well made and fun to play, if a little east. The audio sounded great and went with the theme of the game well.

Awesome game! Graphics are superb. I was missing a health bar though. Solid entry, good job!

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.
