by waveformmodulations - Jam Entry

Tradition states that long ago, on islands that are now under Moana, the deep blue sea, Shapeshifting Mo'o lived alongside Humans. It could sometimes be difficult to tell the difference.

Ahua, Son of Kumu, Ali'i Nui, must find a Human girl to be his Wife, though just getting a date to tonight's Luau would be nice. Ahua has travelled to a mysterious island to find his Wahine.

After pressing play on the menu please allow 15 seconds for game to load

Objective: Search for a real human girl. Shapeshifters always have a clue to their real identity. Watch out for the clues!

-Press E to interact with items and Wahines
-Press G to give them gifts
-Press C to crouch
-WASD to walk
-Press SPACE to jump
-Hold shift to run
-Mouse to navigate viewpoint

Made with Unity 5, due to the new update we were not able to create Mac OS/X or Linux builds. Players on those systems can play on the web version.

Ahua isn't up for any ophidiophilia I guess... nice visuals and sound. Nice game.

This game was very interesting. though after i gave the girl the purple flower, she turned into a buggy lizzard that tried to eat me. the lizard was glitched into my and then glitched the game.

I'm having troubles to launch the .exe file! Keeps loading but never start!

This is a funny little game. I couldn't honestly figure out the objective, and it didn't feel like there was one aside from the little light things, but the people are really funny, and I enjoyed it.

Hard to get what was Mo'o at first but then found out what it was :) Very innovative and to the point for the theme!

The game immediately crashed for me. I didn't catch the error since the window closed on its own and removed the .exe.

The game immediately crashed for me. I didn't catch the error since the window closed on its own and removed the .exe. I'm on Windows 10.

Good mood of the tropical island but gameplay is far from intuitive

Great work. The music and graphics were nice and add to the atmosphere of the game. More vegitation and variation of the island with lighing & shadows would polish your game up. :)

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 ( 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.
