Katie's Flight To The Netherlands!

Posted Image

Katie the flying Kitty met her love, Nathan the Dutch Reindeer, over the magical Interwebs. Help her fly over across the Atlantic ocean and meet up!

Paper figures are almost like a facade, right? Right.

Most #gmc cameos (read: this is everyone) are voice acted by themselves. I sleepily hammered away at my keyboard and called it programming while google image search and Nea provided me with the graphics that pretty much provide all the charm of the game.

Defender of Rospuda's Valley
I won enforcement 3rd place in my Jam Location :).

Download: http://globalgamejam...rospudas-valley
(9mb bottom of the page)

(Err zip file will have some longer time after last time of zipping because when i was trying to upload game site was downing and i had to go to presentate my game, after it I thought that my game files were uploaded, and when I back in second day from school i fix some bugs and there i saw that no game files were uploaded :| and I uploaded today.)

Movie with fight: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=l4hU-8SGHX0


There are fast translated story of game:

The Mags from Augustov Castle are building The Portal in green country of the Raspuda Valley.
The Portal make possible passing between human and gods world.
The Mags don’t understand that the Portal is first step to Ragnarök: awakening the snake Jörmungander.
The Mags used power of nature for buiding the Portal and it’s the easy way to unbalance of biology.
A muddy ponds to fill with lava and hot asphalt called a Jörmunganders venom.

You have to stopped the building of Portal. You are the defender of Raspudas valley!

*Rospuda is a Valley from my Country Poland, where was many protests against the construction of the highway, so our hero is in part ecologist :)

Moonlight Sonata:
Download

Red indicates post submission text.

Post Jam Update: Download

Updates:

Added a new control set - you can now also use the mouse.
Reduced the difficulty a bit - though it's still quite a hard game, so I also added level skipping after 20 fails.
Added a few more levels.
Fixed a bug that made it stop raining. (as rain amounts are controlled by computer lag)
I think I fixed the freezing bug, I haven't had it happen so far in the new update after a bit of optimisation, but I still have no idea what caused it.


I would describe the game here - but its setting is a bit to unusual to describe in words.

I created the rain and auto tiling engine before the jam, but aside from that (and it's perfectly legal to use engines) - I created it all within the allotted time.

The game related to the emotional side of façade, though it contains building façades too. Bonus points!

EDIT: If you don't extract the game - there won't be any levels! :face-palm: Please extract the game!

I vote for...
You Monster by Klassic
FIRST PLACE
5/5
Fun, original, variant gameplay, good use of theme. So far definitely the best! Having two major gameplay modes kept me playing for longer. It's addictive, too--trying to build up a large army of followers for that oh-so-satisfying moment when you turn around and MUNCH some people meat! Too harsh a penalty for getting caught, however. The graphics and sound do a good job telling you what' what. The text results when you try to persuade somebody were a very nice touch. "Get away from me, you pycho!" Ha, he doesn't know the half of it.
I vote this game for first place because it is the most fun to play, and keeps you playing for the longest time, of all the games in this jam that I've played. It's also pretty unique.

False by Jonathan Pzone and KodyT
SECOND PLACE

Nice! Good use of the theme, unique gameplay, and even a memorable mollusk character! Graphics are pretty good too. I got stuck as soon as the game said I should be able to handle myself (lol) but I still enjoyed it. More, please! 5/5. I vote this game for second place because it is unique and fun, and makes good use of the theme.

Save Us! by Khornel

MOST POLISHED
THIRD PLACE

VERY nice! Really, really creepy. Creepy music, creepy fog, creepy shredders and their traces. The meechanic of roping in sheep is pretty funny (if not quite glitch-free.) It's amazing that he made a 3D game this polished, this quickly. I quite enjoyed playing it--at least until it asked me to catch 20 sheep when the 40 sheep were dissappearing at like 1.5 per second.
I'm guessing that the facade in this game is that those white people-fluffies turn out to be civilized shredders, and you're really capturing the sheep for them to eat. Am I right, Khornel?
This game is my vote for third place because while I liked it, and was highly impressed by how much effort he put into it, the gameplay becomes frusturating, and the rope and hero/obstacle interactions are a bit rough. It stands out over the rest of the games, though. And it is definitely the most atmospheric entry.

Nothing_will_ever_hurt_you by DXsmiley

FOURTH PLACE
Tells a very interesting story! I really like the element of having the walls move and having the shadows as black and solid-looking as the walls. I vote this one for fourth place because of the interesting way it tells a story! 5/5
5/5

An Inconvenient Facade by RetardedLemon

BEST USE OF THEME

I like this one. Seeing the grim chamber with stone walls and spinning saw wheels, and then having it turn into polished white platforms and everything looking like smiley faces... :)
Definitely the best integration of the theme into the gameplay, in my opinion.
The sound effects are pretty impressive for a jam game.
The level where strawberries and monsters are running around on the same platform completely spoils the game though. I tried that one ten times and quit when it said 'game over'.

4.5/5

The following are reviews NOT votes:

UPDATED


Water, water, water by orange08: The game about trying to find water in the desert
4/5. I like the multiple endings; especially where you give up hope 1 inch from sucess.
The controls are good, and the game is not at all frusturating.

Ictoat by Snailman:
very similar to Water water, but with much better use of the theme. Also multiple endings; longer and has some challenge. 4.5/5.

Disillusion by TrueValhalla
Nice graphics. Gameplay is pretty familiar.
The giant spider scared me! 3/5.

Shadow Runner
Hop over or duck under obstacles as you run through the level and collect coins. Fun, but it wears off pretty quickly. Too easy to die. Nice shilloutte graphics. 3/5

Don't Judge A Building By It's Facade by Irfanfox
Pretty unique! Not what I was expecting. I like being suprised when I play a game. Difficulty and length of the game are tweaked well. 3/5.
Break the Facade: by Ziggler1
Nice polish, but it's broken. 2/5

FIXIT by ThatSnail
Second most polished....There are an amazing number of levels; and the layer-switching thing where you can see the other layers at 3D angles must've been tricky. And the story is quite interesting. And it has sound effects!
I like it...EXCEPT for the part where the game consistently breaks! I can hear the hero moving, but my screen is just a sheet of turqoiuse! But still, I like it up until it breaks. 3/5

Bak-Lush
The idea is good; the execution is not so much.
2/5

What You See by TrickPixel Games
Another illusionary platformer. Done nicely, though. However, you get stuck very easily. And I mean restart-the-game stuck. But lots of content for a jam game! 3/5

Mystery Men by Red October
Quite unique compared to the other entries. Fun to play, no bugs. Only good for a small amount of fun though. Good use of theme. 4/5

Fake Date by ShinyJiggly
Funny little story game. The plot is pretty entertaining. 4/5

Boximus by Harrk
On the plus side, the graphics are nice, and also easy to read. The intro story is pretty interesting.
BUT: Enemies suck; they make the player feel that the game is unfair when he's killed by one over and over again! They made me give up the game. 2/5

SpyBot by TheM
Too hardcore; doesn't fit the theme. Interesting idea though. I liked the shillouttes of things going on behind the windows. 2/5

Twisted Mission
Getting chased by, distracting, running from, and getting eaten by the monsters...not in the job description! Kind of frusturating when you don't get to do anything but flee monsters (and distract them with the globes) though. I was expecting to find a weapon, or get those bloody monsters to eat the other people. I do like how the map is randomly generated though! 2/5.

Wanted: Dog not alive by jakobs98
Funny idea for a game! Good clues, too (whiskerless, doggy tongue,ect.). One-miss-game-over penalty is a bit too Atari-esque; especially since sometimes it's rather hard to spot the dog. 3.6/5

I Love My Wife by blopit
Cool gameplay idea. There is, however, a bug. If you try to save the game it crashes. Since it's a pretty twitchy business to survive, I gave up rather quickly. I did like the spinning wheel platform--must've been tricky to hook up. 2/5

MoltenLead_Jam5Entry by CaptainApril
Nice game! However, I don't think the theme really fits in. 4/5

Moonlight Sonota by Docopoper
EDIT:
Sorry, Docopoper!
For everyone else who read my post: There actually is a game, but I didn't extract the levels properly. I'll try it again.

Subterrania:
Got stuck within 2 minutes. Found a bug within 5 minutes. No comment.

Bots
Vaporized my inventory with a bug that happened consistently. No comment.

allyflight

No comment
Fac-Ace
Was unable to figure out the controls--they were not what I was told in the
menu.

Bubble Jam Version
Very nice music; like the way they did the menu. Gameplay is best described as 'unrewarding', however. 3/5

Bair
Not bad! Like the music; gameplay isn't too frusturating and is compelling. Good graphics. I don't see where the them comes in though. 2/5

City Mania
Nice variety of gameplay! Nice menu graphics; new message box graphics a nice touch. Waiting isn't that fun, but building structures is. Impressive content for a jam game. 4/5

SHAP3_SH1FT3R_2006
Controls suck; penalty for dying is too harsh. Try making the hero move slower and slow down faster. 1/5

Squirrel Launch by 0 RekNep 0
Weeird! Fending off alien squirrels by capturing them and shooting them into space is a pretty cool idea. I really liked the alien voices. The graphics were also quite good for a jam game.
However, the GUI needs some reworking. You should be able to just gran squirrels, instead of constantly switching to the hand tool (wasting precious seconds while they mind-beam your cannon to death). You should also be able to drop squirrels into the barrel of the cannon. And the tutorial quits my game when it ends.
If you added more features and cleaned up the GUI, it'd be really fun!
4/5

Seeds and Weapons

Interesting idea! However,every time I tried to save I got a Game Maker error message. But there's a lot of levels to it, and the idea is interesting. Needs to be developed more.
2/5

BallX

Way too Atari-esque in it's one-hit-you-die. Other than that, fun simple and addictive. Could have bonuses spawn more often. 3/5

Money Running Out

Great idea for a puzzle game! Unfortunately, I couldn't get past either of the two laser barriers (yes, I picked up the 1st item). I think it's a bit harsh to reset the entire game if one coin brushes a laser, too. 3/5

Neither Hallucinogun or Dawn of Nightmares would work. Or Duality. Or Gaming_404.


Phew! I can't beleive I played so many jam games in the last 2 days!

(in depth top 5 and honourable mentions)

1. False - Absolutely loved the mechanic, thought the game was a bit too difficult and confusing too fast, but very nicely made.
2. Nothing Will Ever Hurt You - Really enjoyed the story and the snap-ending. I was actually a little stunned for a bit. Well done.
3. An Inconvenient Facade - Well put together and quite polished. Nothing I haven't seen before, but it was enjoyable.
4. Fake Date - A ton of character, I really enjoyed the unique art/story. Definitely different from the other entries.
5. Subterranea - I had fun playing it, which automatically guaranteed it a top 10. It looked and played very well.

Well done to everyone! There were a handful of games that didn't hit my top five but I was thoroughly impressed by, some of those being:

Rather than little reviews of every game I liked, disliked, or didn't get around to playing, I am going to instead make little reviews for four games. :whistle: Magic, I know.

Some people have rated games based on a variety of different things. For my reviews I have one statistic, "was it fun? :yes: ? :no: ?".

I played absolutely every game in the list, well done everyone! Below are a few select reviews.

~ Reviews ~
  • Breaking The Facade by Ziggler1 : Wow, these were some really intelligent puzzles! The use of the boxes to fall through the floors was really ingenious.
  • Citified by Venomous : This is absolutely amazing work for only 72 hours! I love these kinds of strategy games (less starcraft more swords & soldiers) and you absolutely nailed it.
  • Falling For Milk by 11clock : I'm not really a platforming fan, but for some reason I had a blast playing this game. The concept of avoiding fall damage is actually really smart. Kudos for coming up with a unique mechanic.
  • RedHood Revelation by _250500 : Really took me back to Dragon's Lair and those type of games. It only got more hilarious as the game continued! Well done
  • Fake Guide by The_Puzzle : Oh wow, I was cracking up laughing the entire time.. hilarious voice work and the jokes were genuinely funny.
  • Dawn Of Nightmares by mads2194 : Granted I scare easily, but this game was TENSE. The door part made me jump a little in my seat! You seemed to have texture problems though - my guess is their dimensions weren't a power of 2 (required for mipmapping). Still fun to play though.
  • Water, Water, Water by orange08 : The falling ending was hilarious and your use of the theme was legit. Great job on this one.
  • Don't Judge A Building By It's Facade by Irfanfox : This was really fun, I enjoy these Super Crate Box kind of games. Also.. dat ending lol

1. An Inconvenient Facade by Retarded Lemon
This game not only used the theme really well, but the gameplay itself was very nice. I was able to play the game to the end, even all of the inverted levels. Even though I suck at memorization, the memorizing in this game wasn't very difficult. A clever and fun game that deserves the trophy.

2. Boximus by Harrk
I'm a sucker for metroidvanias. This game had great gameplay, a jetpack that is fun to use, and some good platforming. My only complaint about this game is that the character moves too slowly. There are multiple endings, correct? I'll play through the game again to see.

3. Mystery Men by RedOctober
No music and the game itself isn't well polished, but the gameplay is good and kept me entertained for a while. Some of the comments that the people say are hilarious, and it's fun trying to figure out who's Mafia. I also love how every GMC member who's competing in the jam is in this game.

The game itself being a facade? GENIUS!

It's obvious that the creator of this game really did care for the graphics. Looks very nice, but too bad the gameplay itself wasn't very entertaining for me.

The reason why I decided to try out Mystery Men was because of how well placed together the devblog is, and the game itself sounds very interesting.

I gotta say, I'm kinda disappointed in the results of the jam. Not as many good games as I would have suspected from 63 entries. Oh well, there were still a few gems in the bunch.

My votes:

1. False - Really liked the concept (kinda Super Mario Galaxy's "Space Junk" level made into a full game) and the graphics fit it quite well.
2. An Inconvenient Facade - Pretty enjoyable and it looked nice, although it did get a bit repetitive (as far as I played it).
3. Boximus - It looks nice, music's good, and it plays alright overall. Had one stuck-in-a-wall glitch, though, and the timing in the controls for the jetpack is quite aggravating...
4. Redhood Revelation - It entertained me.

MY VOTES
1-Disillusion by True_Valhalla
I felt TV showed the most skill in the competition, making a fun game in a couple days. The graphics weren't spectacular, but I actually felt they added to the gameplay. The game was fun and although the theme integration wasn't that good, it still stayed on track. The spider scared me for a second XD.

2-Duality by Thesnidr
This game simply impressed me as it is a decent 3d game made in little time. I think it shows the creators skill level with Game Maker at his best as he made great physics and a fun game. Just like above, I am impressed at the results with so little time to actually work. The graphics in the game were a bit lacking tho and really didn't fit together perfectly. good Job tho!

3-An Inconvenient Facade
I thought this game was simply a great example of the theme. I enjoyed the puzzles as they were challenging, but not so difficult as to force me to give up and quit. This game deserves a vote!
