Ancient Techno Low-G

by Kassimkot - Jam Entry

Ancient Techno Low-G is an pulsating arcade of hack and slash action that test your wits and reflects.

An ancient paraplegic called Low-G has stumbled upon an ancient technology deep within the mines of Ancoria that enables him to hover and move faster than normal human beings. But, by doing so, he has unleashed an endless torrent of monsters that will wreck havoc upon the world.

Can Low-G put a stop to it with his new found tech and makeshift Axe?

Playable with XBox 360 Controller (recommended).

Made entirely in Unity 5.4

By Effinjay Studio for Ludum Dare 36


About the development:-
The game was developed entirely in Unity. Modelling, Animation, and AI Programming.

The only thing that wasn't made by me was the sound effects, background music and the floor texture.


Enjoy!

Interesting game, but unfortunately, I can't seem to play properly without a controller.

So, some control issues on my end, the screen seems to have moved your ui about to make it kinda awkward

i appreciated the music though, that was rad. So were the art assets used for the avatar and the enemy sprites.

the wacking animation was fun, but it was hard to tell if i was hitting an enemy. Since the swing was so slow, you could have added in an impact effect on them to make them recoil a little n give the player some breathing room. as is it felt a little claustrophobic

The game idea is great but it's very hard to get through level one. But especially the enemy's graphics/animation was really fun and great. And the music fits the game well.

I can only see hafe of the HUD, and was therefor not able to read your text in the game.

Noted on the controls and UIs. Was more focused on the use of controller too much. I have a day left. hopefully I can improve on those.

Everything except the music was done by me. Even the modelling and animation. All done in Unity, cause my laptop had problems connecting to the internet for some magical reason

Thanks for the comments

Well that was incredibly intense heh. Nice work, seemed to work on without a controller for me :)

nice animations for the enemies, the music is electrifying, the only problem is the mouse sensitivity that was to low

i love the animations, and the music as well

Aug 29, 2016 @ 3:53pm

Im sure it's great! music is awesome! Only problem is the controls with mouse are a tad wonky, so i couldn't do much. Keep up the good work!

The music is rad and I love the graphics but playing in WebGL with a mouse can be a bit tedious.

cool but the enemy should be easy to kil but it should be hard to turn in the right time

The game has been updated within the 72 hour mark.

I've adjusted the controls and the difficulty level. Hopefully the experience will be better.

If you want to play the previous version, you can check out the game page by clicking the Windows button

Have fun

Really impossible to play correctly with the browser implementation, you should lock the mouse.
Also the game graphics aren't wonderfull but you take the risk to do it in 3D.
It's fun, great job :)

Played with xbox controller. It was fun! I didn't really understand when I hit or missed the enemies but I managed to kill a bunch of them anyway.. The screenshots look nothing like the game to me, actually I like the screenshots more than the game with textured floor etc.. Character design and animations are nice!

No control issues here in fullscreen browser mode with one screen. Mouse locking would be nice though.

Apart from that, fun game. The axe swinging in particular felt good. I wasn't quite sure what to make of the enemies, but I thought of them as evil Aztec bunnies of some kind.

Very well done assets and programming. Incredibly difficult to get through the level.

The controlls with the xbox controller is much better than with keyboard and mouse. It has a pretty harsh difficulty to come through the levels but I still like it. The music is getting a bit annoying by time.

The game is fun but it gets a bit annoying without locking the mouse to the game.

Good job though :)

Good job!

I like the chomping animation

Nice game. As other said, it's a lot better with a controller :D. I especially love the music!

Oh my god those mouth creatures are terrifying! Feels quite action packed, I think a big part of that is the music, I like the axe swings and radar, pretty tight game in general. Worked well with a controller, but there are some issues with capturing the mouse in the web build. but overall a great game.

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.
