Hotline Trump Towerby Skipi - Jam Entry
You look upon America and despair. The economy is in ruins, there are riots in the streets, the people are clamoring for such silly nonsense like basic Human Rights. You yearn for a simpler time. A better time. A time where people were subjugated. And it was easier to rule over Humanity from the shadows as their reptilian overlords masquerading as government officials.
You seek to end these injustices. And make America Great Again™. How you may ask? By becoming president! Unfortunately, you're an [illegal] alien. No one would vote for you! You need a disguise. But who should you choose, you ponder. Why of course! That Trump fellow would be good. And Republicans love Art of the Deal! He'd be perfect...
You are part of an alien reptilian species that has been secretly infiltrating Human governments for centuries. However, Humanity is slowly undoing your work. So, you being the go-getter type, decide to hunt down Donald Trump, kill him, and use his body as a disguise to run for president!
*Inspired by things some people actually believe.
This game was partly inspired by Hotline Miami. As such, it plays like Hotline Miami, just not as good. :P
-Use WASD to move around
-Use the mouse to aim
-Left click to shoot/punch/hit someone with a plunger
-Right click on a dead body to transform into that person
-Press E to open doors
-Use shift to move the camera around
In the top right will be a tracker that shows what form guards will be looking for you in. Switch to another form to render them non-hostile.
But be careful. If anyone sees you shoot another person or transform, guards will be alerted. Guards can also hear your gunshots and will investigate.
In order to win the game, you must get to the stairs you started at in Trump's form.
Press R to restart, escape to quit.
HTML5 version coming soon. Possibly.
Music not by me! Music was by the talented DropADay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sXwlPyxwLA

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.
