Yet Another Random Game

by badia_r - Jam Entry

We are a team of first-year computer science students from France. For most of us it's our first experience in making a game! We tried to create something but we would have needed more time, so the game isn't finished. We'll do better next time ;)

Aw! At least you uploaded a thing. The level layout reminds me a bit of Super Crate Box. Perhaps that's what you were going for. Don't feel too bad.

For a first time game it is a really good try. One problem is that you can stand at the sides of the platforms. If you did it the way i believe you did you propably have one colition box to do the physics of the game or something like that. I believe you can improve and maybe next time make a much more and pleasant game experience. Also what was the objective of the game? You could literally stood at one position and just shoot forever. That said i really liked that you animated the bombs that mouse had that was a cool touch i am hoping to see your next projects. Cheers :)

Hi,

I wanted to create a game where you would have had to fight different kinds of enemies and swap the hero so that you can adapt to them.
@marmpa Yes, I couldn't make the platforms slippery

It just looks like you modified the Unity's 2D Example Project. Some things are exactly the same with that project.

At least you did something, and that's awesome!
That's a first try, you'll progress!
I hope to see you at next LD! ;)

Cool entry! It reminded me of super crate box as well! However I too can literally just stand somewhere and not do anything. The enemies barely do any damage to me.

For your first game however, good job!!

Good first try! It reminds me of my own game Weredude, which wasn't that great but it was very useful for learning about Unity.

Good job on what you were able to accomplish. keep working and learning! I can see this being a fun game had you been able to finish.

Since the link is to a zip containing a .exe and not to a webpage on which we can play the game, please relabel your download link "Windows" instead of "Web".

nice little game! Collisions between the rockets and the enemies would have been nice, so you could "air-rocket-shoot" them

Not bad but it's lacking on gameplay stuff.

@gelisam Oups you're right, that's fixed!

Thank you all for your support! :)

I think you had something neat happening here!
The visuals are really nice- loved the water.
Would have obviously liked to see it finished, but you did great work and I hope you do more jams in the future!

Keep on working guys! A tutorial would help to understand what to do.

What you've got is nothing to sneeze at. For me, the main point of the competition is to force you to learn and try new things in a very short amount of time. If this is your first time making a game, you probably did that. Plus you have the beginnings of what could be the best mouse dragon platformer of our generation.

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.
