Babyshifter

by Eroxxie - Compo Entry

The baby wants cookies, but his babysitter dont allow him. Shapeshift with the power of his dolls to make it easier to get from the crib to the jar.

At 35 cookies stored, you shapeshift into a cookie behemoth and you are able to trample the babysitter to get sweet revenge!

Overall Controls:
WASD - Walk
T - Mute Music

Baby Controls:
Left Click on jar - Put cookie in-pocket (up to 4 can be obtained once)
Touch Doll - Shapeshift!

Werewolf Controls:
Right Click on woodwall - Destroy it!
G - Shapeshift into Baby again

Fairy Controls:
Right Click on dresser - Move it!
G - Shapeshift into Baby again
(you also moves/fly faster as fairy)

NOTE*: You can only pick up cookies from the jar as baby (if you have a current form as a werewolf or fairy, you must press G to drop the power and then click on the jar)

I would like to work on it more, but i dont have time to do so. I wish to expand the game more, but i may do so in the future!
This was my first Ludum Dare game by the way!

Tools used:
GameMaker - game engine
BFXR - sound effects
Beepbox - music composition

Good graphism, good humour but the game is a little boring after 8 cookies for somes reason:
*After the 4 coolies you have use all the disguses, there isn't suprise :/
*The game is repeated, maybe you can add somes differences or just recreated the woodwall after some cookies.
*I didn't have the courage to take 35 cookie.
To resume, next time, try to make your game shorter or add new mechanic of gameplay in the time.
But again, the graphics and the humour are unique, 1st time i saw them in this LD.

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.
