Radiance

by OverPoweredTeam - Jam Entry

Radiance is an arcade survival experience, where you control the "Radiance". It loses life gradually, so in order to survive you have to absorb minor rads while dodging obstacles.

You move by leftclicking on the screen.

This game was fully developped in 48h by OverPoweredTeam.

Sorry, but it looks like you did not include the game in the folder.

Yep, your drive folder is empty

As with the other posters- Still no file in the folder for your Windows version.

Windows link is missing, so I could not play it yet.

Fun concept! Graphics were good and uniform. Control scheme was a bit unreliable at times, though. Also not super strong on the theme.

It seemed like a great idea, but the controls are wierd, and the "Radiance" sometimes had a mind of it's own.

Good game. Tricky to get started - how to control and controls fuzzy sometime. But i have fun time with it. Good to go. Some HUD status about character life or time last will be helpful

I didn't see any Shapeshift, but the global feeling is good (shake cam is good and not too disturbing, perfect for me). I don't like at all the random movement of the character, I think the game would be way much better without it (Real Skil !!!). Where's the audio ?
GG !

The controls were a bit difficult to get used to and it decided to start on my first monitor instead of my primary one so that was annoying, but other then that it was a pretty nice little game.

A solid idea executed well, I feel that a little more look ahead distance would of helped, but in general I had fun. I like the shoot to move part.

Agree with previous posters - quite fun despite slightly tricky controls. Shapeshifting aspects seems to have fallen a little short but overall a fun game to play.

Good game, I liked it, even though controlling the ball isn't obvious

OS/X link just sends to a rar with windows files.

This is an interesting one.

Stetically is awesome, the music puts you in the mood. I survived for a while but I thing the ball sometimes moved to the cursor, and sometimes away from it :-/

Nice one. Took a try to figure out how to move, but then it worked :)

Hard to get it but when you got it it's cool !

Nice attempt trying to make a different kind of control, but the physics feels a bit messy when trying to slow down your sphere.

Loved the graphics and the music, but you didn't stick to the theme!

Great work anyway!

The move mechanic is quite original, but it is hard to control it, it feels as if friction was too high. By making motion more fluid it could blend amazingly well with the graphics and music you've created, those two are great.

Nice job!

Audio and graphics are great. Controls are a bit difficult, but after playing a couple of game, I got it. Nice job!

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.
