Drip Motion

by masterkrepta - Compo Entry

Drip Motion
You play as a Sentient blob of goo, trying to reunite with your brothers and sisters in the pool of fluid below. As you work your way through the maze, you will encounters a variety of puzzles, included locked doors only activated when you are large enough, as well as fans designed to prevent you from reaching the goal. Change your form as you absorb your allies to become large, and split yourself up to allow for passage through the maze that are more suited to a smaller size.

By hitting the tab key, you can take control of these allies, and guide them back to your core body.

Tools:
Unity 5.3
Audacity
Bosca Ceoil
Evernote
Gimp

This was my very first Ludum Dare (and only my forth game overall)

~~ Known issues ~~~~

These is an occasional bug where after you split into two pieces you may not be able to re-select the core player, use the restart button is you have to.




Thank you for playing

My first run, i started by going backwards over the wall, and immedietly won. You might want to fix that. in my second run, I superjumped into space? not sure what caused that. the wobbly noise in the background is pretty annoying. another level would've been nice. other than that, it was a pretty solid entry for a first Ludum Dare!

Interesting mechanic. Smooth control. I like the prime idea. With more time you could do something great. Thanks ++

You can jump over the walls and fall to the bottom, otherwise pretty neat idea

I won! That was pretty short. I like the concept a lot and the controls worked great. The texture on the goo is nice too.

Great mechanics with an interesting concept! Great job Masterkrepta!

This was also my first time, so I hope to see you in more Ludum Dares :D

A good start with some good concepts. I had a lot of confusion about what to do, and whether I was supposed to be doing some of the things I did. A button to restart the level would have been nice while I was figuring it out.

Game has potential as a puzzler.

Interesting idea, but very buggy. It would also be nice to be able to change the camera angle.

Nice game concept. However, I think the physics were buggy, I fell through a hole even though I was too big.

The first run I won like in 30 seconds. Then I played again by the rules and got the overall idea. Nice take on the theme. Jood job!

It's a bit odd that you can't restart until you've finished the game. The ball and the liquid are very pretty, it was actually quite hypnotic to just sit next to the vat and watch it shimmer.

The game was too short(or I did not do it right) I just droped in to the green lake thing and won. Next time remove the .pdb (debug files) to make the download smaller they are not need at all.

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.
