Kawaii Cat's Adventure

by XtremePrime - Jam Entry

You are Kawaii Cat!
You're on an adventure to bring gifts to all (current 1) villages and restore happiness to the land.

Each village accepts a specific type of resources gifted to them (Metals, Plants, Fruits, etc).

Unfortunately You are unable to pick the resources by yourself! You have to sell the "Magiberries" to each village in order to earn their shapeshifting ability which can be used to mine a specific set of resources!



Controls:
* W A S D - Movement
* F - Shapeshift (once you have power [lightning])
* Space - Mine/Collect







Note: I'm sorry the game is so rough and barren. I had a lot of problems these days and I didn't manage to finish what I intended. But if you guys like the idea behind the game, I'll continue it <3

I really REALLY like everything about it, other than the fact that it has kind of been done before, but the spice/feeling you added to it completely canceled that con out! Nice job!

It's a good start on an interesting premise. It's just disappointing there's so little to do. I like the idea of gathering resources which in turn gains you the ability to obtain other resources, and it's a good foundation for a much bigger, much more complex game. I hope you'll put some effort into making that game ;)

@Everyone: Thanks for the comments so far, I really appreciate all the feedback given!~

@Ryusui: Thank you, I myself am a bit disappointed I didn't get to add as many features as I liked in the game. I had this idea that multiple resources can be attributed to one city and based on favour, you can gift those new resources, but I just lacked the time because I had a super busy IRL weekend </3

Good idea for a start!

I think it would help for the next time if you organize your time and scope for a simple single mechanic first before working on other things. A nice guide to keep in mind for your next jam: gamedevelopment.tutsplus.com/articles/1gam-how-to-succeed-at-making-one-game-a-month--gamedev-3695

Keep going and good luck! :)

Good idea for a start!

I think it would help for the next time if you organize your time and scope for a simple single mechanic first before working on other things. Finish the most basic single mechanic first, and then focus in polishing and adding other mechanics, HUDs, scores, etc.

Keep going and good luck! :)

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.
