Shapes of Revolution

by GuillaumeGwi - Jam Entry

This game is about the moving shapes of revolution and protest. It's about the constant struggle between authorities and activists. It's a small tribute to NuitDebout, Occupy and Indignados.

You take the role of a group of activists decided to occupy a place. You can select (left-click) and move (right-click) group leaders (they are in red). You can also choose the shape of your group. Using the triangular shape can lead to death on police’s side.

The goal is to avoid been incarcerated by the police.

The web version has some graphical glitchs. To be able to move the camera, you need to be in full-screen. Use the windows version if you want the best version.

The art was instantly pretty eye catching for me. I like the concept, but I wasn't exactly sure what I should be doing. I couldn't work out if I should be able to move the camera? Didn't seem like it, but some of the police were offscreen most of the time.

I couldn't figure out what I'm supposed to be doing here. Looks nice though.

The idea is pretty interesting.
However I couldn't really see much happening. I could just let my guys stand at some spot and nothing would happen except for the cop counter going up.
Maybe you could add some more indicators for showing what is going on.

Hey everyone ! Thanks for testing our game. We had a hard time finishing it. It lacks a lot of things, but we may release something with a better finish sometime.
We love hearing about your feelings about it, thanks a lot !

Ho, and we forgot to mention that to move the camera you have to use the arrow keys, but only in full screen if you are using the web app.

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 free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)

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.
