Shapes of a party official

by eemmbbeerr - Jam Entry

Take on the role of a commander in charge of cleansing operations in this strategy game!
The very open interpretation of the theme poses the question of what will you become: a Traitor of the Cause or a Hero of the People... those that you kill make the difference while you stay the same.

Controls:
WASD/Mouse to give commands
Q for a fun addition to the level

EDIT: We removed the link to the WebGL build because you reported that it was losing performance. The WebGL version is still accessible through the All Downloads link but it is not recommended.

Music perfectly fits the game! It had a bit problems with performance in web, and after few minutes it gets repetitive, nevertheless great job!

The idea of shapeshifting is being presented in very interesting way in this game. Nice gameplay, even though web version loses performance after first level.

Very likeable music! Hovever, the web version was veeeeeeeery imperformant and the gameplay got repetitive very quickly.

It would be nice if passing identity check would be visible on the guys themselves, not just minimap. Nice settings of the game :)

Neat take on the theme. At times it felt like the main screen was a bit too far zoomed in, so the minimap was a nice touch.

Agree with previous posters - awesome soundtrack, fun to play, interesting interpretation of shapeshifting.

This is a great game. The visual aesthetics don't come together too well, but still managed to set the mood. I recommend taking this game further.

Pretty cool game, very innovative. I loved the micromanagement aspect of the game. Unfortunately I couldn't micro properly because there was some lag between clicking the minimap and the camera moving, as well as selecting the units and commanding them to move. A shortcut to switch between modes would be nice, as well as a ground indicator to where they are moving currently (maybe even the ability to queue actions, or patrol?)

Maybe the delay was only there because I'm running it on my shitty laptop. I'll try again when I get to my desktop.

Good work!

Nice starting idea.
I would like to play an advanced version of that game, cause I really like the russian style and the way that you implement the theme. Good Work

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.
