KEK NOR KEK

by nanimono - Competition Entry

You woke up after 3k years of sleep. You are no longer human.
Good for you that you are slept near the resource spot and not died from starvation.
There is absolutely nothing you can do in the game. 3k years have passed after all. Everything dies.

Genre: Walking Simulator. Control: WASD - move, Escape - quit.

I like how I slowly crumble. Not sure about the name of the game though.

This has a nice haunting atmosphere, and the death animation is pretty sweet.

It has an interesting look to it; played long enough to fall to pieces.

I like the looks of the game and that it works in web player, and the death is awesome

Cool atmosphere, I like the feeling. Would've been nice to be allowed to explore more, I crumbled in less than a minute. Either way, GG pal!

As others have said, the graphics are good, and the way you "decompose" is very neat. It would be good to have some gameplay, though! ;)

The atmosphere is good, though the game doesn't seem to communicate the rules well.

Looks like those black particle clouds are recharge spots. But whenever I move from second to third, the character falls apart for some reason (lightning?). Is it possible to avoid it somehow?

"Walking simulator" XD
Mm nice atmosphere!
Visually I think you've done a pretty great job!
The first thing that popped into my mind is - the character - the hybrid of cubes and human parts work so well why haven't I seen it before? Perhaps I just didn't play games who did something similar but to me it seemed pretty unique. The decompose was also very cool.

I also managed to get the white screen of KEK NOR KEK.
I'm still not sure what the title means but I have some ideas - kek nor kek could be read as:
cake nor cake - nor is the logical operation.
lol nor lol - where kek is slang for lol (related to wow)

eye hil eye - if kek nor kek is a caesar encoding (the repition of kek might hint that it's a word, therefore it's not a total strech).
in some languages hil means killing, perhhaps (eye for an eye?), or it could mean HIL as "Hardware-in-the-loop simulation" but that's totally a strech haha.

Well it could be just bullshit as well xD

Really cool mechanic. Ambience and visuals were all very cool. Regeneration was inconsistent but you could easily polish this up. There is game in the rough and it is good.

Atmosphere is good, well made graphics. But without gameplay mechanics you quickly loose interest to it.

Not sure if this counts as a "game" really, but nonetheless the graphics and animations are nice. It controls well and I like the ambience.

Nice self destruction, but it seems to me that the main character walks too slowly. Freaky atmosphere. Well done ++

As others have said, the atmosphere is really cool and quite unique. I'm not sure though if there's any gameplay - I understand that it is a "walking simulator" but that being said was it originally meant to have other mechanics?

In any case the walking animation is pretty well done and the crumbling animation is something I haven't seen before.

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. Many solo participants 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.
