by loet - Compo Entry

All the villagers are looking for the wolf (which so happens to be you). You have to "help with the search ;)". Shapeshift into the wolf to eat fellow villagers but avoid being spotted in wolf form. Go and feast!

It has been a while since I made a game so I gave this one a shot. My goal was to make pixel art that I can be proud of after finishing an amazing tutorial by uheartbeast.

I didn't really get to building levels or even testing them but got a game done with art that I like. So mission accomplished. Hope you can find a little enjoyment in it.

Thanks for playing.

Interesting puzzle game. I was confused at first and kept dying. Once I figured out that you position and timing was crucial, I chomped down on all of the people :)

I would suggest adjusting the graphics in the post comp version. It would be nice to see more contrast between movable spaces.

Nice idea for a 2d turn based game. There is not a lot to do so it wasn't as fun as expected but the graphics are really well done

I enjoyed the turn based mechanics and I think there was a fair bit of strategy involved considering how simple they were. It was a fun little game and it is nice to see another entry make use of roguelike movement, other than my own xD The art was simple, yet good looking, but I do think more contrast between the spaces where you can and cannot move would have been nice. I did manage to bug out the game, I believe by spamming the shapeshift. I could walk around as the wolf and enter the villagers' vison without losing. I figure the game displayed the wolf graphics while in actuality I was still in my human form. Just a little thing to look out for, but overall - really good entry!

The game idea is nice, but I was not able to eat no one, the game is very hard.

haha this is what I was looking for, I mean, shapeshifting is a werewolf thing, it's cliche but it's great.

Reminded me of the jumping puzzles in undertale. Lots of interesting depth created in the dynamics. Nice pixel art. :)

Very interesting puzzle! It took me a while to figure out how to kill a villager on the levels. It looks like I couldn't figure it out with the tutorial only.
But very nice entry!

This was awesome. But super difficult puzzles. Really like the mechanic. Strange how you could move diagonally, but not attack diagonally? Wish you could get to moar levels :)

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Good little logical puzzle game. I would enjoy seeing more levels on a post-compo version. :)

Well done. This concept has a lot of potential!

It was an interesting concept, and I liked the idea of movement and shapeshifting. Unfortunately, I know that the music was probably just cobbled together, but maybe in post-comp versions it could have a little variety in the loop? Also there's a bug on Level 2 where the 2 villagers at the bottom get stuck facing each other wich makes killing only one of them impossible.

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.
