Tsocwol Tour Operator

by LeReveur - Jam Entry

Some human tourism companies are not very particular about every detail points on trips they offer. The aliens travel companies are not much to envy.

Cool game. The first one that actually made me laugh. In particular because of the "almost, but not entirely like" matching of shapes.

Fun game. I like the idea of bad disguise.

Thank you for your feedback ! :D

I wish I came with this idea sooner than 36h after the competition start, I would have made it more consistent... T_T
I had some other ideas, but this was for some games without humor, not fun, and too likely what I made in previous LD's - and I like to vary my entries.

The dialog in this is amazing, and I love the dress up aspect! Would love to (obviously with more time if you like) see what the interactions are with each outfit I try to put on. But very well done!

Unfortunately, due to lost time matters, I had just enough time to make only one text per camouflage "score". This means one for 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 correct choices (whatever which kind, only the total correct number is taken in account). So, if you want to see them all, you just have to test one of each cases. ;)
If I had more time, I would have probably provided at least three for each case, giving that I provided three corresponding "native" kinds for each disguisement and for each camouflage parts.

Well done!

Cool little game. I found it strangely challenging. I can't think of any speed dress up games out there so points for originality!

it was not THAT innovative, but it works great, and is beautiful

Funny stuff

really fun! it would be cool if the matching was less obvious and if it somehow calculated a percentage or drew a graph of how close you got. Otherwise fun. I giggled when I saw my final alien a few times.

Nice idea, very unique; it's nice to see some other game types. Also big thumbs up for using HaxePunk.

Apr 21, 2016 @ 5:14pm

Haha, really cool!
like the whole conceit, makes for some good humor :)

Really fun game, I like the cardboard look of the costumes :)
Sometimes I felt like I had it perfect but still lost, it could have been nice to be told what I did wrong. Also some sounds and music would add to the mood. Good job anyway! :)

Nice idea and very well executed! I like this kind of puzzle games!

Some forms were quiet weird. but I like the concept

Apr 24, 2016 @ 5:19am

pretty cool idea! Liked that the aliens were randomly generated so if was different through multiple playthroughs.

It was interesting and funny to try and "best match" the costumes with the alien body shapes.

LeReveur says ...
Apr 24, 2016 @ 4:15pm

If I don't mistake, you can get 50625 different aliens (3 x 5 kinds of each 4 elements), so, yes, I hope you don't get the same five at each play :D

the shape needs more "shift" !

Sorry, budgetary shortcomings... ^__^

what a unique take on the theme! i really enjoyed this. loved the crazy alien shapes, haha.

I like the game. The character must wait till the last minute to book since they are never prepared.

Apr 25, 2016 @ 9:39am

I like the concept, nice work

It feels like it is missing content.

Though the game is funny and a interesting theme you should never put a time limit on a dress up game, it sorta killed the mood

axoona says ...
Apr 28, 2016 @ 9:25pm

it's quite fun and I managed to visit all the planets in the second run. It's really cool that the camouflage is not really identical to the alien form

Quite good but it takes me a long time to understand what I have to do

Apr 30, 2016 @ 1:43am

Haha, fun and funny :)

I liked how the combination of the time limit and the close-but-not-that-close disguise options made it feel like being invited to Halloween party last-minute and quickly tossing together a costume from things around the house :P

Very cool game! Like how you have implemented the theme.
Keep up the good work!

May 1, 2016 @ 9:29am

Had to laugh at the third leg being attached to the side like that. 5/5 for humour!

Nice concept really insteresting and I loved that you never get the exact form. Good job

scorched says ...
May 1, 2016 @ 11:34pm

Nice game, but I don't understand if it continues or restarts infinitely after each level :D It said 4 worlds left, then 3 worlds, then 90%, then again 4 worlds

LeReveur says ...

The screen with percent of exploring is actually the end one. The idea came only 36h after compo start, and I have choosen to make better alien forms rather than make proper intro, transition and outro screens. ^_^

Original!! Great work!

May 6, 2016 @ 7:12am

This is awesome, I enjoyed every second of game play here.

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.
