Who you're gonna call?

by sez - Compo Entry

If there's something strange,
In you neighborhood.

Who you gonna call ?


Well, don't mind them. YOU are the ghost this time around.
Haunt the house, avoid the busters.

-=-=-

2nd real LD entry.
Really proud and fun to work on project. Had loads of fun with my LD partners in crime. Now I will drink beer to celebrate and haunt some house.
DOEI!

-=-=-

Use LMB to move and to haunt objects.
When the Haunt-O-Meter is full, you'll earn a point.
Busters will try to stop you and vacuum you out of excistance.
You'll score more points when there are more Busters.
Use RMB to dash. You can use this as a last resort escape.
Busters will be alerted to your ectoplasm trail, when you will score points and when they will see you.

HAVE FUN!

The opening camera drift takes a little too long for a game that killed me so quick :I I love the style and the arcade feel. Great camera movement and filters.

Thanks , the artwork is great I also was thinking on making game like these but I ended up with the flying shapes. Btw the shapes aren't random, it's a pattern :)

It was fun to play. But not much of a purpose to it other than trying to get as many points as possible. Love the art style though. :)

Thanks a lot for playing all!
@iendsl I might update that and make it skip-able. But need to regain my sanity first :)

Fun game! Now if only the ghost can control the object while haunting it... flying chairs and tables and cats everywhere

@akirassasin that was the original idea. Already had a falling chandelier working, but hat to cut it out because I couldn't make it fun.

Really innovative, never seen anything like it!

The graphics are really well done. And the filter is awesome!

Very fun game, great graphics, cool sound! I scored 90 points. It felt really exciting to haunt an object while enemies are close.

Very polished. It felt like a full game. Difficult, too. Good job.
Maybe add a skip for the opening credits.

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.
