Apeshift

by tasteless - Jam Entry

Apeshift

Ape likes bananas...
Ape throws poop...
Ape gathers 3 objects, balloon, brick and log...
Ape turns in to objects he found.

No keyboard controls really, need a controller, was made with ps4 controller.

So it's not finished, we bit off more than we could chew, but we gave it a good shot, and we'll finish it in the next few weeks i imagine. looking forward to it!

Good start. Very uncomfortable controls and physics. Doors were buggy. Bullets were hard to see.

Nice animation on the ape. Other than that, the game could have benefited from some additional art and sound. The gameplay was a bit repetitive, but everything worked. :)

Has potential, the scenario/narrative is an interesting starting point. (Also you caught an error in my game and I fixed it and I'd love for you to give it a second chance!)

Pity you didn't have more time to add to this. Nice character design though! worked on my xbox controller fine btw

The main character is funny, and overall the game is standard, but if you modify will be cool!

Nice animations, could have used some more sound though.

Too bad you did get further along with this. I too like the animation on the ape, but the game is fairly bare beyond that.

We're going to finish it this weekend or the next. As I said, we bbit off more than we could chew, but it was a lot of fun, and we really want to see it finished. We'll post it somewhere when it's done and hopefully some of you will play it. Thanks for all the comments, it's great to hear!

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.
