A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Info:

Made in 77 hours and 49minutes for LOWREZJAM 2020.

https://itch.io/jam/lowrezjam-2020

The game is limited to a resolution of 64x64 as per the rules.

There was no theme but I went with some of the suggested ones like:

You Are The Weapon - "professional" gun user.

Infiltration - your mission is to infiltrate a castle.

You Are Terrifying - press "C" when the bar fills up. ;)

Timelapse + Gameplay:

Jam Comments:

I always try to create a game during a jam like this without looking anything up on the internet or anything like that and I almost managed to do it.

I unfortunately had to look up two things from my own previous code after attempting them for hours, these were:

1. Smoothing out the collisions, I made some mistakes here and they're still far from perfect even after looking at my old code a bit.

2. I forgot a small part of projecting shadows (a simple one liner) so I had to go look at my old code for this as well.

I also used my own mastering preset for the music / sound effects but all melodies and sound effects were created during the jam as well as all graphics.

Overall, the game turned out better than expected.

Feel free to leave any feedback!

Description:

This is a fairly standard old school Doom / Quake style shooter where you play as an agent on a mission to infiltrate the enemy castle.

Features:

5 Levels + 1 bonus developer testing level.

6 Weapons. (one is shared with another)

5 Enemy types.

A bunch of different items. (ammo, armor, health, powerups, keys)

Secrets.

In-game stats like kills, items, time spent in level.

Controls:

WASD = Move.

Mouse = Look around.

Left Mouse Button = Shoot.

Right Mouse Button = Zoom.

Space = Jump.

E = Use.

C = "Special Power".

1-5 = Change Weapon.

R = Restart Level.

If you get stuck you can enable / disable god mode (invulnerability) by pressing "Home".

Notes on Linux:

The Linux version currently has all shaders disabled so it will not look the same as on windows.

It also has some mouse movement issues, at least using the touchpad on my laptop.

Overall the native Linux version is relatively untested (I basically just confirmed it runs), so it may be better to just run the Windows version with Wine or something.

(not tested but should probably work)

Install instructions

Windows:

Extract zip and run YAW_YouAreWeaponized.exe.

Linux:

Extract zip and follow instructions in readme.txt.

(might work better using windows version with Wine though)

Hi, do you have an email I can privately contact you on regarding your game?

Hey, yep I do, it's listed in my twitter info: https://twitter.com/ApapappaGames

I pretty much only have it displayed there for anti spam purposes.

(not sure if it actually helps though)

I just tried a little but it's funny. In the genre I only played "project warlock" but i finished it almost twice, so this kind of games keep to be interesting today.

Thanks for playing. :)

I have not played "Project Warlock" myself so I can't really comment on that, but I can say that "Doom-likes" will always be interesting to me. :)

nice game man 

Thanks. ;)

good game. even if i cant see anything, still a good game.

Thanks and yeah, that just comes with the resolution limit.

I tried alleviating it a bit with the zoom feature but it's probably not enough. :)

this game is great, and.... IS THAT LUIGI .O. why we need to kill luigi's do u work for nintendo .OOOO.

Thanks, it's supposed to be like a military man but I get it. :p

This game is amazing but with the time gets confusing

Thanks for playing. :)

And yeah, I know, it can get confusing at times because of the resolution, but that was the requirement for the game jam so it is what it is for now. ^^

(+1)

Yes Yes no problem! I know what's the jam about, but If you move looking directly at the screen It gets confusing. Really Good!

MAC ??

I don't own a Mac so I can't do that unfortunately, sorry.

R for restart - not the best idea to be honest xD
Else - it is AMAZING!!!!

Yeah restart should have been on another button further away from the movement keys, but it is what it is for now.

Thanks for playing and glad you like it. :)

I have nothing to regret. Item´s bonuses and weapon´s damage were well in balance. Music and sounds fits well. I got nostalgic vibes. This reminds me of Doom, Serious Sam and Hexen. -oneak

Yep, I went for an old school Doom / Quake vibe, Quake is in there mostly because of the jumping + platforming.

Anyway, thanks for playing! :)

Wow, very nice!

Thanks, glad you like it. :)

nearsighted simulator :)

Yeah, that's just how it is with this low resolution. ;)

I probably wouldve chosen a fog effect or something, it can get really eyestraining at times, atleast for me personally

There is fog unless you played on the Linux version where all shaders are disabled.

The fog could probably have been a bit closer though so I understand. :)

(1 edit)

Im on windows and never saw any fog
update: Nevermind i see it, its just not close enough

Good to know it's there and works but yeah, the fog could definitely have been a bit closer.

This is fun... and of course I also made the mistake of tapping the 'R' key in the worst possible moment! Eh... still fun. :)

(+1)

Thanks for playing, I left some comments on youtube. ^^

And yeah, the 'R' thing may be a bit of a problem but this is what I consider the final version for the jam so it is what it is for now.

(+1)

Please change the "R" restarts level thing.  I keep doing it thinking I am reloading my weapon :)  Otherwise 10/10!

(+1)

Thanks for trying the game, glad you like it. :)

I won't be doing any changes to this version until the jam is over, but I'm thinking about making this an actual side project, so if that happens, you can expect many changes. ^^

pretty fun but it can be disorienting at times. all in all a pretty good game

Hey thanks for trying the game.

Yeah it can get disorienting, but that's probably only because of the low resolution which is required for the game jam this was made for. ^^
