by Eniimal - Competition Entry

How To Play :

Arrow to move

The game is absolutely not complete.
Like a lot of people I lost track of time and sent this very unfinished compo entry !

Hey, im sure you know this but just in case, Space and left or right Ctrl don't seem to to anything for me. (Windows 10 , firefox) ... other than that i love the style and animation of the enemies. The static is super cool too, i haven't seen one like that before.

all the graphics and animations are the beast, but the movement its super anoying, maybe you can try to implemente rotating while moving, unless that was the intention, nice game overall

It is visually appealing, but controls are pretty buggy.

I cant shoot too :/. And yes you should be able to rotate when moving because now it's really annoying. However, art looks really cool!

The fibers in the static add a unique feel! The camera placement felt like actual cameras could be there. Overall I really like the style, but the lack of rotation when moving forward was more frustrating than tense. I didn't get very far in multiple tries due to the restrictive movement.

Thank you everyone for playing the game and taking the time to leave me a comment.
About the controls: Message received, I made a mistake by disabling the possibility to rotate while moving.
I will change that in a future postcompo version.

To shoot you have to hold LEFT CTRL to aim and then press Space to play while still holding the aim button.
(I wanted to make the character draw his gun each time you press the aim button but I lost track of time)
So holding Aim will give you the ability to shoot but you have in this version no feedback that holding CTRL LEFT did anything.

The controls felt clumsy. I like the idea of having a static camera in a horror atmosphere. Keep working on it!

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.
