A really fun little game, it feels pretty good when you do build a really tall house !
My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to be really balanced (heh), but including wikihow pictures was a nice touch ! :p
Where are you all coming from ?!?
Given the general rules of the Random WikiHow Jam we were not expecting as many participants but here we are ! We're extremely happy and excited that so many people joined, thanks a lot to all of you !!!!
Remember to have fun and not to take all of this too seriously, this jam was created to see how people would interpret such un-jammy themes as WikiHow articles.
Game jams are unique jokes among game developpers which push us to create something truly unique, fun, broken and personnal above and beyond any expectation of something made in a few dozens of hours.
So make great games, make terrible games and have fun ! <3
We can't wait to try your games !
PS : Got a terrible theme as well and I love it https://www.wikihow.com/Feed-a-Betta-Fish-Peas
Yes, this game was certainly lacking some features (mainly instructions). We'll continue to work on it for a while to improve it, so thanks a lot for the feedback !
About the playthrough, one might be published as soon as we finish this project (though finish is a pretty loose term in game development). And thanks for the technical precision about itch.io to, we'll fix this.
Thanks a lot, we really appreciate ! And the video was great, many great games were made this year !
That being said, it highlighted the fact that this version was pretty underwhelming, with a lack of clear goals, working mechanics and competent designers. So we uptdated it in order to create a little game out of this mess and a prototype is already published, check it if you're interested ! :)
Oh god. Here in Paris it's 3 am and I don't know if it's because this game's brain cells are just as dead as mine but I absolutely love everything about what just happened on my screen. Please make a trillion dollars out of this wonder.
So ? What do you say ? Great ! I was sure everyone would like this !
Here's the link of the game if you want to try it ; https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/463306
It's a physics based game about moving a bullet fired by a sniper cat to help him destroy evil ninja cats.
Now how about sending me a hundred games to play today ?
Pretty cool game, with interesting mechanics !
Downside, the hitboxes where very strange, you should better communicate where the ennemies can ant can't touch the player and how long is the duration of the attack.
Really cool game ! Honestly one of the best I've played during the jam (and I played a lot of'em).
DO make a full game out of it and tell me when it's ready haha ! But just one little thing that I have to say (except from OH GOD IT'S HARD AS HELL) is that you can hide yourself in one of the two corners and the ennemies won't be able to touch when they spawn, so you have a lot of time to shoot them before they come back (don't know if it was a bug or not because the game is still hard with it though).
To do that, here's an idea : just have five buttons (i dunno, q, w, e,r and t ?) which need to be hold during the entire game (and if you let go the game pauses or restarts) so the player has one hand that he absolutely can't move ?
Or just tell the player to not cheat x)
Always here to play a weird/silly/funny/interesting game !
(And since it's a trade I put mine here too but shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone)
wait no actually do tell everyone
Yeah, this is a pretty good game !
Though if you want to continue working on it (or even reupload it after the jam), you should probably put a music a bit more dynamic, I don't think this one really fits with the gameplay (which reminded me a lot of undertale by the way).
I'll play, I'll play, it's always satisfying to see we didn't got through two hellish days for nothing ! :p
Here's mine if you want to play it. Hope you enjoy ! https://maxence-maire.itch.io/warui-neko-akuma-sogekishu
Here's my game with only 7 ratings so far, it's called Warui Neko Akuma Sogekishu and is about a sniper cat going on a rampage against evil ninjas to avenge his family... Well it's just another game with one bullet, only this one is physics based and in 3d.
Hope you enjoy it ! :)
Our game (right here https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/463306) is physics based (can you see where this is going ?), made with Unreal Engine 4 (CAN YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING ??) and the player controls a bullet which, of course, moves at high speed (you probably see where this is going) and so if the player tries to go through the floor with enough momentum, they glitch out of the universe and have to restart the game.
How did we fix that ?
We hoped the player wouldn't try to go through the floor.
