Given the theme: I'm officially transforming my game into something completely different that I feel I can realistically get done in time. The giant transforming battle robot combat game was a BAAAAAAAD call.
Spoiler: ShowHide
It was a bad call, Ripley
. There's no way I could get that done in time.

Luckily I have a plan B that I just made up!

And it's a horror game! My favorite!

Got the second puzzle working perfectly...And it's fun to do (at least for me)...

The first puzzle is still borked but I think I can figure out how to make it fun...

Onto the next one...and writing the story...

EDIT: I have the third puzzle set up and just have to code it... It is a very digital puzzle...

Erm... It seems I made a slight calendar miscalculation. I kept thinking Wednesday was January 31st, and I'm really gonna need my half-day-off on Wednesday to get my entry finished.

Would anyone object to the deadline being extended to February 1st?

BLACK MORPH


Gamejolt link

As a Black Morph, use your ability to turn into living things to make your way through an enchanting forest.

Credits
- Selmiak : lovely graphics and game design.
- Emont : awesome ambient music and SFX.
- Creamy : code and game design.

My apologies to my partners for releasing this demo without showing them before (at least not the end) but I'm getting tired and I won't be able to work on the game tomorrow.

Good luck on finishing your game Mandle, gameboy and Blondbraid.

I guess that's decided, then.

Blondebraid and Gameboy, are you still in?

I just realized that Black Morph is a demo? Lovely graphics and cool effects but there doesn't seem to be much you can do other than morph into 2 objects and pick up one. Am I missing something or is that what the demo is at this stage?

I'm just posting to rest my head for a bit...

I'm still stuck trying to code the same puzzle I had working yesterday but have broken somehow...

So yeah...

4 hours of valuable time wasted with zero progress...

But I will soldier on even if I have to stay up all friggin' night!

@slasher: What is the quit bug? That there is no quit button? Yeah, you are right, but you are also right that Alt+X quits.

@shadow: it depends on where you transform, there is more to discover ;)

The quit bug is where the game fails to shut down properly and you get windows pop up boxes and the mouse goes haywire at times..

There is a patch for this.
