Harmless Titan

by oyoh - Jam Entry

Countless brave heroes have tried to kill the Titan.
But they all died trying.

Little did they know the Titan is a gentle and peaceful soul, trapped in a gigantic, demonic body. Play as the Titan and avoid killing the harassing heroes.

The game ends when you have taken 100 innocent lives.
Heroes you push out the arena do not come back.

Controls :
Left stick / Arrow or ZQSD : move (you can change to WASD in unity input parameter on launcher)
Right stick / mouse : rotate
RT or A / left mouse button : to push knights aways
LT or B / right mouse button : to stun all knights (only 3 charges)

I really like the idea that I could't die but I have to keep those folks alive. I liked the sound effects and graphics. I kinda missed some animations on the giant and maybe some slower movement or movement with acceleration or some stomping sound. I wanted to feel like I'm that big giant monstrous body walking around but I felt like I was driving a car on ice. Anyway overall very good job :)

I enjoyed it and it's a cool concept. However one very annoying thing is that I can click out and lose focus of the game.

Whoa, great game! Love the graphics and audio implementation! Also, very cool and fun idea.

I loved it, hig marks on all, but I really wish it was one stick only, turn in the direction you're moving. The two stick setup feels really clunky and uneccessary :/

Beautiful looking, clever idea, great sound and music, charming concept, fits the theme. A little hard to play, but it's so beautiful I don't much care about that. Very nice work.

Interesting controls, I thought otherwise first but turned to liking the rotation with the right stick! Not entirely clear how well you were doing but otherwise great finish.

Great graphics! And a very funny theme xD, Playing with mouse is kinda tricky and a very short game (in terms of features compared to the graphic quality). Good job!!

A good idea, good mechanic, but a little laggy and too slow to be enjoyable even if a kind of atmosphere can be feeled.

Yeah this is really a good idea... I like it very much... good artwork. you need to puit more content... its very short. Good job so far.

I really like how the graphics and sound make it feel like a combat-oriented game, contrasting with the pacifistic objective.

Cool premise behind the game. Well done!

Very innovative, and nice graphics. Well done. :)

Original artstyle!

Yeah, really nice! I really liked the concept and the art style. The music works well with the game and it was pretty fun. :)

My sole issue with the game would probably be that, on the Xbox controller, the right stick turns you in the direction that you point it. Given the genre of the game, I was expecting it to rotate you when you tilt it left or right, so I found that to be a bit of a strange design choice, especially when the Titan can't turn instantaneously.

Other than that, good job! :)

Graphics were very nice, music was fitting the game and the title screen was excellent - enough info to be able to get straight to the game and it had a nice splash screen :)
Nice job overall :) I like it

Great game! I love the graphic and the idea of the game. Control is a bit hard and weird and I think the animation can be better.

I...I couldn't stop killing them. I can't help that I look this way. I promise I'm not a monster. But in all seriousness I like this game, I like this idea. Well done!

Not sure if I really understood the way it's meant to be played, but it was fun anyway, so good job ! :)

Great graphics and sound

Dec 16, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Was super fun to play. The game feels pretty epic even if it's quite minimalist thanks to the feedbacks when you kill ennemies and the good choic of music. It builds a cool mood.

It reminds me of SOTC, enjoyed the music and the game overall!

Good game!! I liked the idea, nice graphics but some animations could make good on game. I feel like something is missing... Kind of repetitive, maybe some power-ups, different enemies or scenario could be interesting.. Good work!

Great entry! The game looks amazing, the sounds and the music fit well, and the idea of a misunderstood monster is very interesting. I think you know that the game can be improved to something much better and more complete if the gameplay was tweaked and something was added. Bottom line, I love this entry keep it up!

Dec 29, 2016 @ 5:13pm

Great aesthetics and super fun to play!
I'm not sure I fully understand the rules but the fun wins anyway :D

Pretty original idea, I had fun playing. However, controlling it with the mouse felt laggy at times, like I wasn't turning fast enough. Also, idle animation felt like it was moving the monster a little, even though it wasn't.

Wow, awesome art, great sound, and tight controls, this is really well done. There were many small polished touches as well, for example the warning sounds when you hit important points such as 90 deaths etc, and the way the icon for your roar ability redraws along with your cooldown timer.

Then there were even some tactical choices, like the tradeoff between waiting at the edges so you weren't surrounded, vs being in the center so that you could actually push the heroes out of the arena.

Very nicely done!
