Danger Dashers

by Pietdagamer - Compo Entry

Dodge objects in your way (AD), and when the terrain changes make sure you are the appropriate animal! Shapeshift with Q and E.

The graphics are crappy because I didn't feel like spending a lot of time on that :/

Not too bad, and I'm not going to lie, the graphics were kind of hilarious. Gameplay-wise, it worked perfectly, and the music definitely made it sound like there was danger. Overall pretty good.

Could not run the game! Missing DLL
Windows 7
"The program can't start because sfml-audio-2.dll is missing from your computer."

The game uses some obscure library which isn't available in the default repositories. You should probably avoid that in the future.

I couldn't play the game. It said 'openal32 is missing'.

It was OK, I guess. There's not much to talk about, but you can definitely improve this game.

Very difficult, but thats a good thing!
Concept is nice and gameplay works really well.
Good job!

Nice work. The audio gets a quite repetitive after some time, but the gameplay is nice. The increasing speed feels good. I like your take on the theme :)

Needs to be polished a bit but the graphics were so ridiculous they actually fit the game. Audio was nice, but you could work on the design and difficulty ramping maybe.

That squirrel was adorable! Good work, but the sound could probably have done with some work. The mechanic was a brilliant idea.

Nice simple mechanic that worked well gameplay wise. Would have been nice to have a restart button though cause I kept having to close the game and restart when I died.

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.
