Dwarf Portals ShapeShift

by Barink-social - Compo Entry

With a little troublesome came this mostly finished but certainly unpolished game. It is my entry for Ludum dare 35. I called it Dwarf Portals ShapeShift. As seen in the title above. Its actually a kind of a sequel to my very first entry in my very first ludum dare.


The Tools:

- Unity 5

- Adobe Photoshop
- Blender

- Audacity


thinks i think i can do better next time.
I will set a certain amount of time i can spend on a thing
I will learn about AI and coding opponent behaviour
I will take better care of game breaking bugs

Post LD version:
Mac / OS X:


Story time:
The game will bring you back to my first entry. The tutorial pretends you played that game. further the story not explained in game goes kinda like this.
You hero Dwarf just saved the dwarf from The Evil. (a.k.a LD33 entry) You got to go through this building full of bad enemies. as you walk in you feel a little strange. Focusing on the feeling you SHAPSHIFTED into an orc. You came to realize you can shape shift and started using it to your advantage while cruising through the buildings.


I enjoyed it and I learned something from it. I can't imagine a better ludum dare weekend. I hope if you joined in as well you felt the same. Thanks for checking the game out.

Please don't forget to leave feedback. See you next time , bye!


The LD version is very much broken, so check out the post LD version to atleast complete the game. Upgrades are still worthless, though!

I tried to shapeshift but the only thing that happened was a message that says "Cool Down". Am I missing something?

I think it may be a bit broken sir. I to got the "Cool Down" message and couldn't morph.

I tried to find shop button but the screen was a bit out of proportion and it couldn't be found. I did mine a few walls down and find a purple beam of light...from there I could do nothing.

If it's ever up and running properly I would give it a go as you seem to have some content waiting within...cheers and good effort dude.

@Nolocality @AnaGF , I am aware of the fact that my game is broken. Last moment adding in the levels and a winning state was the cause.
Knowing that I still wanted to have an entry this time so Uploaded it anyways but further didn't really announce anything.

Thank you for checking it out and sorry to waste your time. I will see if I can repair the game to a state less broken somewhere between now and two weeks.

My apologies!

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.
