Shape Shifters

by SelfTitled - Compo Entry

Pack your van and deliver as many shapes as you can. Be careful its hilly and damage to the shapes will cost value.

Click and drag shapes with left mouse to pack the shapes.
Use Q and E to rotate the shapes.
Left mouse to accelerate.
Right mouse to brake.
R to toggle reverse.
Middle mouse to adjust camera view.
Scroll wheel to zoom.

Also pressing F9 when packing saves your loadout to file and f10 loads it.

Man when there is a physics based game, I can't stop messing with it. Had so much fun, well done! :)

Great idea. Needs more polish, but it's a good concept. The controls to attach the shapes is a bit messy.

How cool is this game! Wordless

This was pretty neat and has potential, good job!

Really loved the feel of the car, going over a hill a bit too fast and then flying felt very impactful. The game's pretty hard, though, and I wish there were levels.

I spend a good time loading that truck high over capacity, and then everything fell off. 8/10

Awesome idea. Really enjoyed this one.

Really enjoyed stacking the blocks and pulling some sick tricks. I wasn't sure if there was an end to the road or not, because it was a bit too long

Fun mechanics, audio and graphics are suitable.

Fun idea. I felt so confident in my first arrangement of shapes, only to see them topple off the truck immediately. My second attempt was much better, as I figured out a relatively stable set up for 3456 points!

That physics based tetris at the beginning was really fun, and trying to make everything interlock so they dont fall off, great job, well done

Really cool little physics game with a surprising amount of substance and replayability. Good job, keep up the great work!

Scored 3000 points! It was nice to play a relaxing physics game!

Spent way more time then I care to admit just stacking everything orderly in the truck. Fun game and liked that you had to also drive your load to put more pressure in how you stack everything. Want to give it another go later and see if I can get everything to the end. Nice job.

Good thing I'm no truck driver lol.
Although there is no real 'shapeshifting', this game is really good. I've enjoyed driving slowly (yeah, i'm weird) to deliver my shapes !
I find the route a bit long but the leveling makes it not so repetitive.
I'm ok with graphics except for these ugly V-shape mountains. ><
Audio's sweet and fits the atmosphere.
Gameplay and its physics are without a doubt what makes it huge.
Perhaps, some ingame content like speed or a minimap would be pleasant.
Anyway, good job. ^^

Cool game, lol'd when I started by immediately throwing a shape offscreen.

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.
