Epic MegaJam Game Thread

I’m sitting here with noodles in my mouth trying to finish this on my lunch break! Aah the pressure!

Here’s a quick preview of mine:

I wanted to develop an indie game, so joined the mega jam during my studies.
I am an artist, and I made a game with only blueprints.Hard, but worthwhile.

Sadly I can’t submit my entry. I ran out of time and had too many loose ends. So here is a video, how it would have looked and played like (atleast the mechanics I could implement):

I’m considering finishing it post game jam :).


You were a machine and died/ceased to exist. Now you end up in a limbo, where vile and creepy creatures roam around to drain your light (soul). The limbo itself drains your light, which is your life essence. To be reincarnated in a new machine, your “soul” needs to reach the gates of solitude, before the light runs out. All player attacks are only there to stall the enemies and freeze them temporarily to escape them. However, every skill drains your soul too. To refill your light, you can use light shrines.
At the end there should have been 2 mechanical giants as some kind of a boss fight.

Team Taco made their entry!

We’ve made a VR Game called **Vralhalla **for HTC Vive, where you need to survive sailing through a dangerous ocean! You must collect fuel to keep your torches lit, or the Kraken will kill you!
You control it, by pulling the rope to the sail with the trigger, and push/pull the tiller. Dodge the rocks or your boat will take damage. You can pick up shields to reinforce your boat!

The download link is below. It should be the same as the submission, but I can’t find a way to edit the submission, so on behalf of the team, I hope it was all submitted correctly! :slight_smile:

and to download and try it out (Windows 10 64 bit PC, keyboard/mouse)

You are a spelunker who fell through a rock chimney into a dark cave infested with…aliens! Good thing you brought your headlamp and infinite-ammo grenade launcher, like you always do when exploring caves! You quickly find you are not the first, and the last guy to fall in left charcoal markings to navigate by. Essentially one ten-minute level with boss at the end. End screen shows stats and saves best stats for comparison, and lets you restart game or quit. No saved game…if you die you restart. Use Pause menu to quit game (or Alt-F4).

Key bindings are mostly like the Unreal Engine 4 First Person Template:

Jump: space bar or game pad face button bottom or motion controller (L) trigger

Fire: left mouse button or gamepad right trigger or motion controller (R) trigger

Reset VR: (untested with VR/HMD!) R or Motion Controller (L) Grip1

Crouch: C

Pause: Escape or Pause or Global Pause or P, any key resumes or click Resume (or Quit).

Move Forward: W or Up arrow or Right mouse button or Motion controller (L) thumbstick or gamepad left thumbstick Y axis

Move Backward: S or Down arrow or Motion controller (L) thumbstick or gamepad left thumbstick Y axis

Move Right: D or Gamepad left thumbstick X axis or Motion controller (L) thumbstick

Move Left: A or Gamepad left thumbstick X axis or Motion controller (L) thumbstick

Turn Rate: Gamepad right thumbstick X axis or left or right arrow

Turn: Mouse X

Look Up Rate: Gamepad Right Thumbstick Y Axis

Look Up: Mouse Y

Move Up (swim mode): Space bar (same as jump)

Move Down (Swim mode): C (same as crouch)

Wait for the shuttle to dock at the supply depot, then exit the ship and go find/pickup your supplies by pressing “E” when the object is aligned with your reticle. WASD and mouse are used for pawn and camera movement. Press “F” to toggle flying in order to maneuver the zero-G environment, or else this objective will be impossible to complete. Use your flashlight here as well, it’s very dark in outer space. Once you have gathered your supplies, re-enter the shuttle and press “E” while your reticle is hovering over the shiny button to engage the flight system and travel to your next destination. Make sure you’re not flying because there’s a boolian that prevents the player from turning the engine’s on while still in the air. (player must be moving on ground to activate button). Once shuttle has reached the space station, exit ship, restore temporary power to the space station hatch, open the hatch, and enter the station. Now, turn on the backup computers, then toggle your ‘Welding Tool’ and press “Left Mouse” to repair Module 001, Module 002, and Module 003 by pointing at them and holding left mouse. Once these are repaired, you can open the hall way doors. Find the water reservoir room and insert fertilizer into the reservoir, then head to the hydro farm room and plant all 16 pots by pointing your reticle at them and pressing “E”. Turn on the hydro farm computer to switch on the grow lights. Then, head to the main computer room and contact headquarters. Mission success, head back to the shuttle and press “E” to exit mission.

Presenting Kyndill, an adventure through the darkness.

Playthrough video (spoilery):Kyndil

Reach the end of the level by lighting the torches around the way and fending of the darkness.

There are still a few bugs with the enemy AI and sound I was unable to work out in time. However, the game pretty close to what I was shooting for. Please let me know your thoughts if you give it a play. I’d be interested in hearing any and all feedback so I can continue to improve. Thanks!

Time is our most precious commodity and the forces of darkness are always busy. The only thing required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.
Can you spread more light by cheering up the people in the city before darkness overtakes you?

Use WASD to move, mouse to look around, and space to jump. Press E to cheer a person up and bring them to the light side. Avoid people who are on the dark side. Also, at night, people on the light side will give you a health boost, but watch out, people on the dark side will hurt your health. At night, there are powerful beings of darkness will chase you indefinitely until the sun comes up. One hit from these beings will destroy you so avoid them at all costs.

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Summary

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Your galaxy is about to collapse. A giant blackhole, sitting in the middle of your galaxy, pulls everything into an unknown darkness. Even reaching light speed is no good. You have to be faster than the speed of light to survive the upcoming cosmic catastrophy and give light energy to your galaxy’s desperate planets which are about to be seized by the giant blackhole.

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Inhabitants of your galaxy’s planets finally decided on an escape plan and you are chosen to rescue planets near the giant blackhole. You begin your journey as an advanced life form and your kind know the secrets of transforming between matter and energy. You have the ability to reach the speed of light yet none of your kind ever tried to exceed the speed of light and travel beyond this mystery. Will you dare to go beyond matter and energy?

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]You have to travel faster than the speed of light to overcome the blackhole’s massive pulling force. Collect light particles along your path to gain energy. Spend your energy to become faster than light and supply light’s energy for the planets which are in need of your help. Beware of meteors and other dangers slowing you and stealing your light energy. Traveling faster than light will be more rewarding but keep in mind that it consumes your energy. How fast can you get to help your galaxy? Break the limits. Move fast, think fast, react fast and bring light to as much plant as you can without your inner light being consumed. Good luck !!!

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Gameplay

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]You start the game in a cosmic path with an initial velocity. Your main task is to rescue as much as planets you can and try to achieve the best score and the best time before your path comes to an end. Along your path, you will be able to collect energy resource boosts and speed boosts while meteors and anti matter particles are dangers that you should be avoiding. Each planet rescued will add to your end game score multiplier. Collectable items and danger items during gameplay are as such;

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa][COLOR=#9900ff]Collectable Items and Rewards[/COLOR]

  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Initial Energy: 30.000 Energy
  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Energy Boost: 250 Energy Gain
  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Speed Boost: Boosts Acceleration and Acceleration Bonus Score Multiplier

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa][COLOR=#9900ff]Danger Items and Penalties[/COLOR]

  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Dark Matter : 250 Energy Loss and %25 Speed Reduction
  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Astroids : 100 Energy Loss and %33 Speed Reduction
  • [FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Rescue Planet: 1000 Energy Loss and # of Planets Saved Score Multiplier

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Scoring System

[FONT=Microsoft PhagsPa]Scoring is basically based on your acceleration during gameplay. More you accelerate, more points (higher bonus multiplier) you get. At the end of gameplay, your gameplay score is multiplied by the number of planets you saved and also if you finish your path with your energy remaining, these are also added to your total score. You can view your current/best score and current/best time inside the game lobby.
