by kardfogu - Jam Entry

Hello everyone, Kardfogú's here!

This is my fourth solo jam so far, as I previously mentioned I normally work under the flags of Creative Sectors - check them out, they are awesome -, but we decided to - again - release two distinct entries.

Gameplay tips: /* You'll really need them if you want to finish fast! */
- your character has multiple forms, you can change them outside of combat as well
- the werewolf form has stronger physical attacks
- the vampiric bat form learns high life and mana syphon effects and has a much higher chance to dodge
- save really often

Let me continue with the special thanks:
- My grandma, becase she is the best and she fed during this 3 day and in general kept me alive. She is awesome.
- Kittens all over the world, 'cause kittens.

The latest+3 generation RPG, Deadwood brings everyone the absolute best RPG experience ever. Released for windows and consoles so new they don't even exist, Deadwood continues - actually it doesn't have anything in common with - the Slashalot saga with a not so epic story to behold.
/*This time the narrative is almost non-existent.*/

Play as Xerot, an undead druid and do good-ish stuff!

Lastly, but not least importantly, I can't release a Ludum Dare project without its anti-features.
- Actual gameplay! My second Ludum Dare entry with combat system.
- Wondrous items of might and magic, or at least they kinda exist in the files!
- There are no mythologically accurate - that is to say underdressed - female monsters this time, my apologies. We might later add that in a post-LD version.
- Really low quality sounds and music!
- Non-animated grass, because I was lazy this time!
- Quite-linear not-so-open world-ish gameplay!
- Secret ending!
- The base game includes some recolored enemies as well!

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.
