More shaders for godot:
lots of fun shaders you can play with here
I really liked the intro and voice acting. The game itself was a bit weird I wasn't sure what to do-- I figure I was supposed to stop them from destroying the crystal but does that mean the game would never end? So I just sat there and let them destroy it (it still took a very long time). Anyway nice job using the tilemap etc. I like the soft look, the color palette. I didn't really think the music matched the tone of the game however.
Thanks for playing. Sorry about the poor performance, it's definitely in need of some optimization-- I was experiencing with PBR materials, lots of lights, shaders, GI probe etc and the result is not exactly performant :)
Mouse input should definitely be in there too! I just didn't have time haha, it was designed around the controller.
LOL I love this, the intro/outro are great. The gameplay itself is pretty simplistic but fun and addictive, I'd love some more complications thrown in there :)
One note I'd give-- maybe replace the mouse cursor with a bigger, more visible one, because it got very lost when I'd try to go after asteroids especially with all the screenshake going on. Anyway great game, nice job! I rated very highly.
Awesome jam entry. The main spell was really well executed and made for a really unique game. Very good stuff!
Super tiny nitpick btw-- attacking requires clicking on the direction you'd like to attack but the mouse isn't locked to the window, so if I'm close to the left edge and need to attack left for example, it's really easy to overshoot and click outside the window, losing focus.
I like the idea of this narrative mystery with voice acting but the audio quality and levels was all over the place, and often overlapping. Fun story though and much more ambitious than you'd expect for a jam.
Some great imagery here (2001 a space oddysee? Borges' infinite library? Stalker?) The lighting and fog looked really nice. Inside vibes. That said if there was some puzzle element to how to figure out how to navigate the space I didn't figure it out, I was getting the same rooms/puzzles 2-4x in a row so I stopped playing. But I love the vibes of this, I hope you keep working on it!
Interesting control scheme, it would be cool if you could switch the sword to the other side. I found it quite difficult as there were a lot of enemies and the sword took so long to recharge. That said, well done!
That's really cool that you're developing your own engine. I'm sure it wouldnt be trivial but a custom skybox + some distant fog to blend the horizon would make this look so cool. The mirage effect here was absolutely evil and fits the theme of the jam excelently. Nice job!
btw would love to play in fullscreen! I tried making the window bigger but then the game wouldn't recapture the mouse so I had to relaunch and play on the small window (very small on 4k monitor)
sweeeeet double machine pistols (and pizzas) what isn't to love? Impressive project for a jam! I had some issues with collision around doorways + shooting enemies if they get up close but it was a very fun time running around the rooftops delivering pizzas, nice job
Solid recreation of the bridge game from Squid Game but is there a trick to playing? I feel like you should get multiple lives so you stand a chance of actually getting across. Anyway nice job!
