Go On A Journey

by xWarZonex - Compo Entry

Go on a journey or something, in my new game, go on a journey or something. In this game, you play as a horribly drawn person, in a horribly drawn world, you fight horribly drawn shapes, commanded by the horribly drawn Dlanod Pmurt. Command and shift shapes with you horribly drawn wand, given to you by a horribly drawn wizard.

PLEASE! REMEMBER WHEN VOTING! THIS GAME IS MOSTLY AUDIO AND HUMOR BASED! Pls rate me well in those categories :D.

I put a lot of effort into the voice acting and the tracks for this game. I hope my voice acting gave the game a unforgettable fell to it xD.


CONTROLS
-ArrowKeys OR WASD
-Shoot- hold space bar.
-Hold shift and press 1-2-or3 to use shapes to affect the shape keys

DO YOU GET IT? HOLD SHIFT TO AFFECT SHAPES! THAT WAS CLEVER!

the intro and voice are annoying more than funny, maybe if they were shorter or i could jump it...
I couldnt understand the game at first, and the tutorial was useless. a more simple way to start the game is to say "press shift and 1 WITH THE MOUSE on the black hole to push it".

I'm afraid I didn't enjoy your audio and voices at all! I like the bow and shifting mechanics, but it does feel more intuitive for spacebar to be jump in a platformer maybe? The darkness/clouds/lighting where the world is only revealed around the character I really like here though - how exactly is that done?

Music was good but you screaming down the mic at the start was really annoying. Mechanically it was interesting though.

Dat voice-acting though xD

Dunno if it's intentional but in the tutorial the voice-guide reset.

Cool usage of the theme :)

Good luck!

the the intro was very long and couldn't be skipped :/ then i pushed the round circle and it went quickly to the right, but it was behind the wall and was stuck. was the wall supposed to break?

nice!

Bow mechanic? Nice. Shapeshift reminds me trine, stuck after the enemy breakable cube, the big circle didn't break the wall. Voice acting unmissable, please not :(

The bow was really great, but it felt a bit overpowered once I realized you could basically just create a wall of arrows if you could get above those terrifying triangles and they'd all impale themselves at some point.

The music was nice and the bow mechanic was really cool. The input for the shape wand thing was a bit cumbersome.

When the voice acting first started, I was like, "Yeah, okay. I can get down to this," then it pushed things further until I was kind of put off by it, but if that's what you were going for, you definitely succeeded. Also, I think you need to disable the "click here for the tutorial button" once the user has clicked it. I had like 6 loops of the tutorial track playing for a bit there.

Overall it was fun and pretty well done.

Thanks for your feedback everyone!

@dvdagames, thankyou for your detailed feedback. for voice acting, I was trying to make it as irritating and annoying as possible, but I think I failed at getting it to where it was so annoying, that it was somewhat funny, I won't ever try that again xD. I didn't realize the tutorial was messed up like that, thankyou for pointing it out.

@anybody who said positive stuff, thankyou

@anybody who said negative stuff, Get a life

Good music, but I had to check the comments below to work out that the "shapeshifting" needed the mouse...

The idea is nice, but voice acting was unpleasant.
You could polish it a bit more.
Overall, the game is ok.

The voice acting was a little over the top. Neat mechanic with targeting shapes.

Mechanics are great and visuals not too bad for a game that you did in 48 hours. Voices are... weird? Music - enjoyable. Cool entry ++

Apr 27, 2016 @ 9:51pm

that audio though. I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :) https://youtu.be/7kJFcods5hA

@Jupiter_Hadley
You were suppose to use the circular orb created by the wand, to push that black circle down onto the platform to open the gate. Thankyou for playing though.

Like the music. Voice acting is a bit overdone (obviously intentionally) but would benefit from being toned down a bit. Music overpowers voice if you activate the tutorial. Control scheme is a bit clumsy as it requires three hands (or at least one super-dexterous one): one for mouse, one for wasd, one for controlling the wand.

Might make sense to have shift held down all the time by default, and use mouse buttons to control the shape/shoot. Maybe left button shoots, right cycles among objects?

Enjoyed mechanics and soundtrack. There is a little something. If you turn back when your arrow is mid-air arrow turns with you also. You probably uptade the velocity of the arrow each frame B). GOOOODDDDDDBYAEAEAEAEAEEEEEAEEAE!

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.
