In Wolf's Hide

by applejam - Jam Entry

In this game you play as a hunter that wa bitten by a werewolf and is trying to find a cure. From all the books he could find he learned the recipe for the cure but ingredients are harder to find. Most of them can be found in the village, but people aren’t going to share them with you just like that, you’ve to become friends with them first.

P.S. Don’t forget to check the mirror daily, and keep your door barricaded in case you turn into werewolf!

Controls:
Point & Click.
Click everywhere in your house to find out what to do. (In other people’s houses you won’t be able to interact with anything but owners of the house and their cabinet, so don’t waste your time clicking on everything there)

The instructions above aren't quite right - you can and need to click on certain things in other houses. Good game though.

The idea itself is not bad, it just wasn't realized good enough for it.
In the end you just try to steal (never got anyone to help me) from everyone until you have all the ingredients, and then you just spam "make cure". You just have to use all teh action points to fix the door when you know you are gonna shapeshift. It becomes monotnous realy soon

Pretty cool game. Some indicators would be a nice addition that tell you a succes rate or anything like that.

Great look! I did find that it got a little monotonous pretty quickly after I figured out the best way to get get the ingredients.

Enjoyed it, died once won once. Audio is a bit repetitive and the set of steps to win is a little tedious but I still really enjoyed it, If you had a few weeks to spend on it I could imagine it could grow really well.

Was a bit repetitive: go to [farmer / smith / whatever], help, sleep, repeat, ...

But the graphics are awesome.

Cool idea and nice artstyle.
Good job.
One thing though. Showing how much action points will be consumed by an action would be helpful.

Good game and lovely pixel art! Maybe it becomes too repetitive at some point, but it has potential!

Really great art style but the gameplay left a bit to be desired. Overall good job.

The cutscenes were unreadable with the font you're using. Also there didn't seem to be any challenge. I shapeshifted into a werewolf a few times without barricading the door and there were no consequences.

That said, the graphics are really nice.

The Game was cool to play.
I wished for more detail on what action takes how much fatigue. For example while visiting other houses I couldn't see how much points an action took.
A little instruction would have been nice too

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.
