Will it Shapeshift?

by plantprogrammer - Compo Entry

Will it Shapeshift?
A game evaluating a single question:
Can ordinary farm animals shapeshift into smoothies.

Walk around and help animals reach the shapeshifting device. Once you earned enough money click the floor tiles for automation or the barn/coop/shapeshifter for higher efficiency.

PS: I had a great time, creating this first time entry into a Ludum Dare event..

Everything was awesome until chicken fell into pit of death. I cried for two days (not really) because i murdered that sweet chicken (blood effect is so ugly that makes it more immersive). In web version i couldn't make player move, and in win version right coop didn't work.

This is too sick to be not loved <3
Also catched the spirit of the voted theme very well.

Hint: Search for the 2nd fullscreen button in the inner-frame and it will work perfectly in the browser.

Well. That was an experience. Too many chicks came out and I got stuck. Still, surprisingly fun.

Good job! I got annoyed when all the chicks piled up and I couldn't move them, but other than that, pretty good!

Aww, what a cute little chick, I'll just help you-- NOOOOOO ;_;.

Now how much atrocity do I have to commit in order to have my conveyor belts clog up?

A unique interpretation of the theme! It was all going well until I shapeshifter myself. Sad times.

Congrats on your first Ludum Dare entry!

Well that was a rather interesting (if grim) take on the theme. The chicken coop seems to constantly spawn all the time though.

Congratulations on your first Ludum Dare, hopefully you had a great time and plan to do it again in the future. Overall the game was decent for a first-timer, and it was certainly a unique interpretation of the theme. I wish there was just a bit more depth to the game. Keep it up though!

Shape shifting machine. Suuuuure Kappa :D... Very funny game but not too much point to it. Still, a good job for making me cringe :D

Hilarious compo entry with unique theme interpretation. Everything has a pretty good synergy from mechanics to sound design so the overall experience is fun to play. I enjoyed playing it, especially for a first LD 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 (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.
