Glurge Purge

by MiniBobbo - Jam Entry

Working security in the cargo bay of a space transport should have been a cushy job. Then the shapeshifting Glurge showed up.

Memorize your inventory before the power outage. When the lights return there will be an extra item in the room. Blast it.

Fun game, a little bit simple though, maybe adding moving objects or something like that could perk it up a little bit!

Got to level 8!

After level 12 is pretty hard. I skipped to the final level and it seems impossible!
The gameplay and graphics were quite good.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? It's like itch or gjolt.
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

This was a very original idea. I really liked it, but got border after level 10 because it got really repetitive. You cought my atention back when the lights whent out longer. Well done!

I like the newer kind of take on a memory game, but it did get a little old pretty fast. Maybe having some music during game play or a different background for the different areas would have helped. It was fun, though!

Fun memory game! Liked the idea of the setting.

Well done!

Cool, neat little game. Dunno why but it also scared me a little bit. The fact that the dialogue from the people giving the assignments was expecting me to die every level didn't help.

I liked the art style, and the muted sfx added to the eerie atmosphere. Very cool entry, good luck!

Really cool game :D I didn't have too much trouble playing till level 22 but then there seemed to be a bug... Even though I shot the right object, the Glurge would appear and kill me...

Besides that is was really fun to play so good job!

Great idea! Good story and funny gameplay!

Levels 22, 28 and 29 are unbeatable because there's only one bullet, and there's a bug on the last bullet, causing the Glurge to show up even if you hit it. I've skiped those levels and continued till the end. Unfortunately level 31 as a one-shot too, so we'll never know the end of the story.

I appreciated the gradual increase of the difficulty level.

Keep it up!!

Good fun, the enemy eating you is a nice effect.

The levels can get a bit repetitive but it's the story that's making it interesting so it keeps you playing just to discover what's next.
I got blocked at level 22 though, even though I shot the right cargo...
overall nice game, big up for the story and the mood

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.
