Evilkitten

by FengeR - Jam Entry

A curse is jeopardizing peace. Contagious dragons have been seen changing into evil cute little kitten. We can't let them making disappear all these dragons. You must kill every single kitten you see in order to save the life of billions of dragons. Good luck.

I didn't really get it, to be honest. A tutorial or something descriptive might've helped. The win/lose conditions aren't very clear.

Hi wtfrara,
not sure if you'll read this but I am one of the devs of this project and I understand we forgot to implement a tutorial in the game. We've learn that from you and we'll remind that for the next GameJam :)

For those who are still wondering how to score and not to die, if any kitten reach the border of the screen and leave you'll lose a life. Same if you hit/click on a dragon. If you hit a cat you'll get 10 points. Your objective? Well, earn as much points as you can.

Really liked this one! Had a blast playing it. My fiancee also found it to be very fun and liked the art style quite a lot. As for the tutorial, I actually like the game as is. It was fun losing a few times while trying to figure out how to play.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

We'll be glad to be part of your video ;)

the idea is simple but works really well. we played your game with 3 people, one of my friends got 180 points as a high score and i got 150 both times.. then our other friend tried it and got 800 right away. the graphics were so cute and the sound was really nice too, overall i cant find anything that is not worth a good rating as it was both, fun to watch and fun to watch the game beeing played.
thank you for submitting this entry! :)

Great game :D reminds me of playing the games in the mall xD I like how u used shape shifting here and the over difficulty curve (:
It took me time to grasp the game at start but later on it was fun :) good work on the art style and music too and good one with the name "Evil Kittens" hahaha xD
All the best :D

Poor kittens :_)_ I missed some kind of instructions but after clicking a few dragons I got it.

You need to give feedback that you've killed the wrong thing or the right thing. I had no idea why the numbers were going up or down or why the game was randomly entering initially.

After reading the comments below I now understand what's going on. It's an interesting concept. Perhaps add other ways to discover whether a dragon is a kitten or not. Also don't change them when they're about to go off screen. That's a little unfair.

I don't like harming kittens. Sometimes the dragons overlap with the kittens. Sometimes the kittens shift very close to the edge of the screen.

Just have to click on the dragon or kittens ?

You must click only on kittens. See my first comment for all the infos.

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.
