I've got "There should be Data near executable" error :/

The download is quite hard, can you perhaps package the whole thing into one zip ?

Sorry about that I was trying to get everything packed up last night so I could make the deadline that I forgot to compress the files for download.

Also I'm not sure why the There should be Data near Executable" error occurred. i am looking in to that now.

Neat concept. Good sound design. Very fun. For future reference: it's spelt "experimental" ;)

Try to bundle everything up as a zip, else I feel most people won't be able to play and rate your game

Yea I bundled everything earlier today. both links should lead to a zipped up version of the Binary and Source code.

Also thanks for pointing out the spelling error. I was in a rush last night so I didn't even bother to spell check :(

Nice shoot em up! But I wasn't able to transform, even though I had my energy bar filled...

Anyway great work!

That is weird that you couldn't transform. I'm assuming it was because you were moving while trying to transform. I don't know why Unity doesn't allow multiple key presses, but if you do multiple button presses with a controller it works. I will have to look into it and mess around with Unity a bit. But then again it also could just be the Keyboard you were using. My Keyboard also forces me to stop moving while trying to transform.

It's basically functional, and kind of fun I suppose, but there really isn't much new here. I like the idea of switching to the car to gain health, that could evolve into an interesting mechanic. I did find that there was only really one strategy, which is circle-strafe and fire at the mob. The interface could be easier to read during the action, but it isn't the worst that I've seen.

@WizByte_Games Oh I see! Yeah, that what was going on! That's weird... I wonder why... I didn't have any problems with that in my game...

I like the game, good job!
The gears popping up everywhere looks awesome. :)

Really neat concept; I felt like it took too long to charge up the energy I needed to shapeshift. Rapid-fire switching between forms would've be sweet. But the gameplay is fun and the effects look awesome!

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.
