BodyGuardian

by Citsua - Compo Entry

You are the bodyguard of the president. Unfortunately, some filthy rebels seem to disagree with your employer and try to kill him on his way to his palace. You could use your gun to eliminate them and protect him, or you could use your special shamanic powers to shapeshift into a bloodthirsty monster who can punch, grab and throw pretty much everything. However, if citizens see you like this, it'll probably affect the president's reputation. But if there are no witnesses, there are no problems either.

WASD : movement
Space : jump
Left CTRL : aim
Q : shapeshift

(While human)
Left click while aiming : shoot

(While monster)
Left/right click : punch with left/right hand
Long press on left/right click : grab with left/right hand or throw the grabbed object

Hah - funny entry. Neat use of the two shape shifting modes. Picking up cars and blowing them up is more fun than I would have expected. Poor president.

Good game ! I died because of too much fun ^^
Add explosions sounds and hire Michael Bay as director and your game will be a best seller :D

That was really fun. But CTLR for aiming isn't cool

Thank you, and I don't think it's a problem since you can remap the controls before the game starts :)

Very entertaining entry, that plays and handles very well. The idea of being a bodyguard that can shapeshift is fun in and of itself. The style of the game fits the overall feeling and humor very well.

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.
