DDD1440

by Ghust1995 - Jam Entry

This game is local multiplayer ONLY! Please play with a friend to experience it fully.

Your objective is to knock your opponent out of the ring.

The game plays like rock paper scissors (you can press start to see the relationships between the shapes)

Whenever you miss an attack you shapeshift into the next shape.

Good luck!

Controls

XBOX controllers are recommended.

Analog Stick to move.
A to attack

Keyboard

WASD to move as player 1
Spacebar to attack as player 1
Arrow Keys to move as player 2
/ to attack as player 2

(you can change the bindings for something you prefer before launching the game, j stands for joystick and the number is the player number)

You probably shouldn't be entering for audio if the music wasn't made for the jam.

I had a hard time learning the controls, but everything else was really good I like the idea of facing opponents. Good job

Fun little game. Btw you might want to know that in our portuguese and maybe like other european keyboard layouts, the '/' key is actually the '~' key. Maybe a letter would have been a better choice ;)

I loved the game. The web version seems broken, but I am using chrome so Idk. The windows version is pretty damn big at 200 MB. I know it's the fault of unity, but that is kinda stupid.

Still it's a great game.

About the audio, we entered more because of the overall audio design of the game (silent gameplay only with the effects) and for the fact we really spend time deciding audio aspects of the game.
Sorry about the keyboard scheme, we added it on a rush, the whole thing was mostly designed for joystick.

Really fun and interesting. Wish there was an AI to battle.

Hard to make a good AI in a game jam. I thought of adding it with the Meta we developed during playtesting. Might try doing it as a post jam thing =)

I enjoyed the music and falling dices. On the dice could not pass. (Chrome)

Played with a friend and it was surprisingly addictive as we played 40 rounds! Simple but really effective and well executed idea

Good multiplayer sumo-like platformer about 3D shapes, trying to push each other away.

Fun little project which you did with a cute aesthetic. Sumo-like? Interesting mechanics. Well done ++

This game looks like so much fun! I wish I could have gotten the Linux build to work. I'm using Fedora 23.

I might have fixed the Linux version, zip was corrupted =)

This is a cool looking, abstract, fast paced and responsive game. The random shapeshifting was a bit confusing (is there a relation between the colours and the shapes?),
but I managed to be successful by just timing my jumps to land near the opponent. The music adds well to the rest of the game. Good fun for a few minutes (until my opponent got fed up of losing :P)

We thought it would be more interesting for the player to try to figure out the game mechanics, but we ended up adding an explanation to the description. Sad to hear you couldn't figure it out without reading =(

Really fun and interesting. Wish there was an AI to play against

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.
