FarKae City

by LeClaw - Jam Entry

Enter FarKae City!

A rough city controlled by underground flashy villains, smug ruffians and neon night thugs, all wreaking havoc!

It's about time YOU showed up!

Are you RAD enough to assume the role of the dude with the attitude and clean these mean streets up?

FarKae City is a retro flirt with the Beat 'em up!-Games of our childhood with a twist! It's up to you to figure out how to beat your opponents!

You control the protagonist using a keyboard (WASD + IKLO) or an Xbox360 Controller (Thumbstick + AXYB), which is preferred, since the controller rumbles when you rumble in-game!

The game ends when you get defeated!

Great graphics and music! Feels really polished. I found it a little hard to learn which key to press for which color in the beginning. It got better after a while but I still made mistakes :)

Very very nice graphics and presentation, it is a very polished game! the gameplay is a little hard with keyboard controls (wish I had an xbox controller) but I liked the game, very nice!

This game is awesome, i love the effort put into this and it's great to see a beat em up pop up out there :)

just 2 minor issues i had :

- the ennemies sometimes stay a bit too packed together which makes it kinda hard to figure things out

- (small bug probably)sometimes a lone ennemy can descend so low on the screen he becomes impossible to hit

other than than, great graphics and music, and a nice take on the theme with this game system :)

Fun game, gorgeous to play with both music and sound, falls a bit short with the theme though.

Great beat em up game! I really love the graphics and audio!

I would have liked the number of enemies per fight to start smaller and ramp up over time. The first fight felt really tough as I wasn't even sure I understood what I was supposed to do with the different color attacks (Although I assumed I needed to match the enemies color, the big guy just keeps changing color and I lost without even killing anyone, so I wasn't sure). But then after a few tries, I managed to beat the first wave, and all the remaining waves were identical.

The aesthetic of the game is really nice, but the gameplay feels unfair, the controls are hard to swallow at first. Although I can say the game is heaven-piercingly creative ;)

Amazing graphics and great feel. Some of the strategic element is lost because the enemies come in so many different colors at once.

Wow, the animations and the feel is amazing, great job!

Loved the graphics and the style. It's super nifty in pretty much all the ways that count, and I hope you continue working on it.

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.
