Human Tetris

by Wirdo91 - Compo Entry

This is the first time I'm making a game on my own for Ludum Dare.

This is a totally original idea, not at all inspired by japanese gameshow like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL4HSk4MUUw

Controls:
'Space' to start after the intro.
'A', 'S', 'D', 'F' to control the limps

No way to reset position? After the first panel I was stuck in fetal position for the whole game ^^
But that was kind of fun, nice work.

This is an amazing entry. I love the voice, I love the physics. The gameplay is enjoyable and it fits the theme perfectly. I cant say enough good things about this. I hope it does really well.

I loved this! It did, as you rightly pointed out, remind me entirely of some stupid Japanese gameshow. It was really hard at first, but I got the hang of it by the end. Very original, great job.

For the guy above asking about Resetting position, the limbs move towards your mouse cursor.

This is one of the most bizarre games I have ever played :)

It was a great entry. The only issue I have with it is that you cannot set the knee or elbow joints, yet some of the poses require bent knees/elbows.

Took a bit to realize that things go to where your mouse is, but works well, could do with some more levels

Fun idea but far too little control over the limbs to make them do the pose :( I couldn't make his knees bend the right way.

I got stuck in one position early on so I just supermanned it through the rest of the shapes. Interesting premise!

Very fun game! Great idea and nice job with the voice acting. It would be great if there was more control over the limbs, some angles and stances are really hard to get.

Well done. I hadn't figured out that I need the mouse too, until I read the comments here so I went back. A bit short I guess, but well executed.

Ha, nice little game. It actually feels pretty awesome when one finally destroys almost nothing of the wall :D

Knees and elbows are hard to control, it's possible but takes a long time. I don't think there's a better way to do it though.

You should show the total score on the end screen!

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.
