Speed Shape is a speed runner where gameplay changes with the shapeshift of the player. We made all the art by ourself. (musics, sounds, models, textures..) We used Unity Engine. Unfortunately, we had many things to do this week, so our game is uncompleted. We'll do better next time ;)

The two first levels a bit hard to handle compared to the third.
Awesome graphics, especially the clouds!

The bird one is too hard, while the sheep one is too easy. Instead of losing immediately for the bird one when you touch another bird, you should still be able to try to recover even though you are being pushed back.
Short and simple, the middle level was the most interesting due to its mechanic.

I had a case of the Wat?s when I played this but it's certainly… unique. Hmm.

I like the graphs! Congrats

It was quite funny. I agree with other comments about the first and second levels. I never were able to jump the first wall in the second level.

Keep doing games!

That cloud will NOT stop judging me! I like how you freshened up the formula of a runner/helicopter game. The most frustrating thing about the genre is how quickly and randomly it seems you can die, and in your case, death is just a change of mode 2/3 times.

I agree with the other comments on difficulty. I obviously missed the flappy bird craze or something :) Unfortunately it felt like 3 different games, I think it would have fit the theme more if you somehow kept the player on screen while the shape shifting happened. Music was a bit repetitive, I liked your models. Weird, for some reason your authors page says 'not found'.

liked the art direction, and the mechanic was well implemented into the gameplay you were going for

Nice graphics but did not understand the logic behind it. The first two animals are almost impossible to play with, and then the third one is too easy. Maybe if the difficulty was building up or it was more balanced, could be more fun.

Interesting idea, cute art and audio. Gameplay was a bit rough though, I never felt fully in control of my player.

Nice game!

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.
