Reptile INC

by WilpelMakeGames - Compo Entry

This is Reptile INC, a short action game where you play as a living experiment in a lab, You have the power to shift shape to a reptile and use the power to escape the lab but you can only shift for a little amount of time.


WASD for movement
Shift to shift shape

The game is VERY short so i made it harder to get more out of it, this is not what i planned and i changed really much stuff to finnish in time.

The shape shifting was original ment to be used to walk passed cameras and guards without being detected as a reptile but i didnt have time so i made it like it is now, hope you like it anyways :)

The game looks awesome, but it crashes when I try to launch the .jar :P

Needlessly difficult, but a cool concept. I liked the lighting.

Really good lighting and atmosphere. Story fits the theme well. Shifting mechanic seemed a bit unnecessary and it was odd that you could only shoot sideways.

Really nice lighting effects and overall look. A bit finnicky though - I feel the game would immediately be much better if you fired in the direction of the mouse, rather than just sideways. Also, enemies would detect me and start firing even if there's a wall in the way. Still, a pretty cool start to something here.

Amazing lightning and atmosphere! It's a bit difficulty because of the shooting being only 2 directional, but oh well. Nice game!

Only Windows version? Couldn't test it

Love the graphics style and general atmosphere. I think it would help a lot of the bullets were more visible, as I sometimes wasn't aware that I was being shot at. It would also be nice if you could shoot diagonally/vertically.

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 ( 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.
