Slash em all!

by Yngvarr - Jam Entry

DISCLAIMER: this game is for two players. Default controls for player 2 are mapped to Xbox gamepad.

Note: I'm not satisfied about this thing, but if I don't release it now, I will fall asleep for a long time. So, here it is.


Sword battle! Have fun with your friend slashing each other until counters overflow!

Default controlls are simple (in braces for gamepad):
* Press 'z' (A) to jump;
* Press 'x' (RB) to bite;
* Press 'c' (LB) to slash;
* Press 's' (X) to toggle block;
* Press (and hold a bit) down to toggle crouch;

Later I will add more players and real graphics, so stay tuned.

Couldn't understand what blocking did =(.
When doing things that really depends on precise hitboxes and not precise physics I would really recommend trying to implement stuff from scratch instead of using unity's defaults =)

The game have some collision bugs (Sometimes you are blocked on the walls you touch,
and you can still kill you opponent if he walks on you while you are dead), blocks doesn't seems to work, or maybe we didn't understand how to perform this.
there are some animation bugs, (When someone dies while walking, the foots are still moving ) but my brother and I played together and we had some fun (with pad of course!), so don't give up. Keep creating games !

@IshikawaNakamura, what's your problem? If you don't like defaults, feel free to remap it.

The idea is nice, graphics are not that shiny :/ And tbh the controls are very unnatural... It's hard to play, but the overall game is pretty nice :)

The game was fun and the animations were cool to watch, having multiplayer was cool and I had a blast wailing on my friends. I couldn't seem to get blocking to work or like previous comments said perhaps i wasn't skilled enough to get to to happen.

Also the sound effects seemed to play immediately after the button was pressed and didn't sync up with the animation.

Otherwise good game!

Only multiplayer game I've seen, so that's pretty cool.
Wish the sounds were better

I couldn't make it turn to the other side, and I don't have anyone else to play with :(. It's good otherwise.

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 ( 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.
