The Dwog

by Pandaman3D - Jam Entry

#LDJam #LDJam35 #LudumDare #Unity
Hey everyone! I was actually meaning to compete in the Compo this time... but due to poor planning and just unable to focus this weekend, I will now be in the Jam! :D All Models, textures, scripts, animations, etc have been done by me alone. I did almost all the audio except the background music, as time ran out, and I'm submitting into the Jam, I went with an old favorite :P Enjoy!!! :D


You play an alien creature, similar to a dog in may aspects, except!!! He can shapeshift into any object he licks!!! I present to you, the Dwog! Solve your way through the maze, as Agents try to catch you. Find your way to your next meal, and win! :D

I fell off the map D^:
I really like what the blur effect does to the leg animation haha
Also, right mouse click brings up dev console

Thanks man, fixed it! I submitted the Dev build by mistake. But now the correct build is available. :)

A really lovely and fun game. I would have liked some stupid guards that immediately forgets where you are, when you have made the transformation. But overall well done.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Nice dog/jump, sfx and fitting adventure music. I'm not usually into maze games, but your desert & dog theme got me into it long enough to find the dog food. The cute dog model and the fact that you can outrun the guards probably kept me going too. Dwog is fast!

The controls and tutorial work well. The camera feels a little weird at first - wish I can be more descriptive here but not sure exactly what's up with it.

I wouldn't mind playing a more linear level design with multiple shorter levels that really utilize the shapeshift. Then again there is a satisfaction of sprinting away from the guard :)

A little picky but you're missing the top face of a barrier in at least one place and have a light leak in another. Guess it's just a time issue for polish.

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.
