It's an itchio! The game is released, but I'll keep polishing it up during this week. The game page: https://zirrrus.itch.io/jelly The WJ entry page: https://itch.io/jam/wizard-jam-5/rate/149759 Original post with lots of outdated information below: Let the Jams begin! It's a tower defense game with enemies based on all of your favourite jelly-related things! jelly enemies Not too sure about these yet, especially the locomotion. One idea is that the basic jellies and jellyfish are pushing the other objects like siege equipment. This can lead to problems where all the pushing jellies get killed and the other things just sit there. Upping the HP of the pushers over time might be able to solve that. basic jelly/jelly(jello) mold - "slimes", move but have no abilities, different kinds/sizes with varying HP toast with jelly - the toast absorbs some of the damage jelly-filled donut - has a little bit of armor before its HP are reduced jar of jelly - has lots of armor and reflects a bit of damage(to your towers or other jellies nearby), turns into regular jelly once armor is gone jellyfish - is faster(?), has an ink-related ability(disable tower temporarily? cloak nearby jellies?) royal jelly - sends out bees when damaged? could be some sort of boss petroleum jelly - damaging(or just killing?) it causes the surrounding jellies to heal slightly towers All the towers are shooting pieces of *********(Ananas comosus), kiwi, mango and other fruit that prevent gelatin from setting. These will probably be upgradable(if there is time). Not sure yet if these can be damaged by the jellies. simple pea shooter - does low amount of damage per second to a single target machine gun turret - does a high amount of damage for a short time, then has to reload mortar - slow firing speed, single shots of high damage against a target with some splash damage to nearby enemies splash - short range, does a very low amount of damage per second to all jellies in range map Tile-based. For now it'll just be a linear meandering path with no branching. If I have the time I'll first add some random generation and then try to maybe implement multiple paths. I still need to decide if the tower's range and their splash damage will be based on an actual spherical radius or a certain number of tiles around them. help If you want to help out, at this point I could use some suggestions for jelly-related things. And at some point I'll need a fun, wobbly piece of music for the game.
After The Wizard Jam, it seemed everyone couldn't contain their enthusiasm for doing another. Many people were suggesting we do one sooner than a year even, but some Grinches like myself suggested it would take away the magic if it occurred too frequently. The demand for jams was so persistent though, it was decided another jam must be held, and instead of taking all the wizard's magic, why not borrow some magic from the approaching season? Winter Wizard Jolly Jam (I'm not married to this name btw) What is it? An Idle Thumbs community game jam. Much like Wizard Jam, community involvement and encouraging people to try their hand at making a game are key components. What are the Rules? Make something. What's the Theme? Winter, Winter holidays, Idle Thumbs stuff, whatever you want. When does it take place? How long? A two week period sometime in or around December, vote here. Are you interested? Will you participate? Does the format, theme, and time frame feel right? Please make suggestions if you have them!
