Shapeshift

by coldman - Compo Entry

Hello world!

I'm here for my third Ludum Dare with a simple 'exploration' game (not quite finished).

EGT (Estimated Game Time) - 3 mins.

Have fun and I will appreciate any feedbacks from you ;) (the harsh ones too).

Is that it? I love the graphics, the concept is fine, the game play is pretty solid, but is that it? You made it look like an adventure game, when there was not much adventure. Please turn this into a jam and work a bit more on it, I know you had ideas and not enough time!

Good "game", I guess. I feel that this could have used a little more time, but for what it is, it is really nice!

Loved Graphics. Lack of Ambiance/Music/Fx sound. And yeah a little too short.

Yep, it feels short. But graphics are cool, and with more work (2/3 weeks) you can end with a cool game. Way to go

I like the idea. But too short (I know you hadn't much time ^^) and maybe with music :) But nice idea and the graphics are nice :D

I like the aesthetics and mood (even without any audio). I don't mind these artsy games as a change of pace.

Really short, not really much there but what is there is pretty :)

I liked it, though it was too short.

By the way, you don't need to pdb files when publishing. Unity creates them for debugging, I guess, certainly not necessary for playing the game.

Nice...Demo ! The graphics and the idea are cool but with a bit more time working on it, the gameplay and the adventure will be better.

I really like the font! The graphics are nice overall but the game lacks in content. But a decent base to work from.

Like the art style! But the game is quite short, wish you added a little more to it.

game is short, but you knew that. :) I always like exploration-based games, and this is no exception! the experience is very pretty and surreal.

Nice graphics style. It's a pity that it's too short. Nice job! :)

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

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.
