Logan's Quest

by Joshsimard - Jam Entry

My first game! I realize that there are bugs, and I unfortunately had to scrap some features as I was rushed for time, but I wanted to have something done. Thanks for trying it out! Feedback is welcome!

Amazing for your first game! I had a lot of fun playing it, and went smoothly bug wise.

I like this game a lot, I would like to see it more polished. It reminds me a retro style :)

Nice work! If you could control the switch between shapes using up/down with jump on the spacebar I think it might feel a little better, but I love the art & the music!

There was an error where it would repeat the music even though you died or changed level.
But still awesome game!

It was a fun game! On the second level, it seems two different background tunes play simultaneously (a bug?). I like the graphics.

This is really cool. Great first game!

Wow, such a nice job! Jumping and then becoming ball was very fun, indeed.

Although I think is too hardcore... even if you don't die, your jumps send you so far down that you have to redo the same things a lot. But, if that is your style, it's perfectly fine, keep it up"

I thought this had something to do with Logan's Run. It's kind of basic, I mean this is the firs thing that comes to mind, when I think of shapeshifting.

Nice entry. A little unsatisfying when you have to back track to get coins though.

Really good job on your first game! You should be very proud. I had a good time with it. Once I got the momentum on the jumps right is was really fun!

Fun game. There is a bug where one soundtrack plays overtop the other in the ice area. Im not sure if that is intentional but I like it.

Good controls and level design. Great that you've done two different levels! Music is a bit repetitive though. Thanks for game, really enjoyed it!

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.
