The Blueprint

by WitchBoys - Jam Entry

You are the hero of Blueprint! Use dexterity and head to complete all the levels of this stealth game! Walk on the “colorshift” platforms or kill enemies to change your color and go through the corresponding security doors. You can also sneak enemies’ shape: the right combination of color and shape allows you walk safely in front and behind enemy lines!

Good game, although sometimes, the camera doesn't focus on the player, so you can't see him as he almost leave the screen.

Overall the idea is pretty cool.

Cool idea and really nice style. I think maybe the background could use something other than just the flat blueprint color, though having it be the kind of blueprint paper look might be too busy.

I love the look and feel of this.

Finished the whole thing. It was really fun. I wish you could put the MGS sound when we got detected, it would be hilarious :P But overall, it's quite good. Well done!

Very nice idea to make a steath game! I like the overhead view that gives you an idea of the strategy to go for. I don't know if that is intended, but you can just walk past most of the people without affecting them if you are fast enough.

Graphics were a little barebones but did their job. I like the sounds.

Great work. There are some camera issues, other than that I didn't find any bugs. The levels could have been more simple in the beginning.

I like the game alot, but I got a bit confused. I didn't fully understand why shift/control were not doing anything, although I understood standing on the platforms to change colour, killing enemies, and the stealth aspect, which I enjoyed :) The funny sounds effects added humour ("Books!" "Books!") and the graphical style was original.

I loved everything about it. The blueprint style, the sounds ("hit you!"), the music, the gameplay. It lacks a bit of polish in places, and I felt I could "cheat" the levels sometimes by just taking out most of the enemies... but it's all very intuitive and well done. Amazing!

Fun to play, unique graphic design!

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.
