Konstruct The Bot

A overcooked Inspired Game

This is a small factory game, were you are a robot taking materials to create stuff, who are used to create bigger stuff.
At least that's the theory, this is far less that we initialy planned, but.. eh, anyhow the game didn't crash

We plan to finish this project in the future, and we won't pretend to win this jam (mainly because for now the menu is the only complete feature), but at least we made something under 48h.

We created this little demo using our homemade SDL Engine, it's clearly not time-efficient nor powerful although we are proud of it. This jam is our biggest project to date and it was a real pleasure to participate.

Don't hesitate to give feedbacks, we will need them, we are looking forward to trying out other submitions as well !

->check @alyseeart on Instagram, she made every sprite of this game with half the time and she's also talented ;)

Hi guys, the game is crashing when I start it. Do you have a fix?

This was a shortcut error, the problem is fixed now you can reload the game. Thanks for reporting this

The idea sounds nice, but it seems there's nothing to be done, apart from walking around with the robot? Are there any other things I can do? There's no help file and you didn't write the controls anywhere.

It is not finished at all yet. We wanted to challenge ourselves with this Jam, and turned in what we produced. Our aim is to make it playable someday, but there is nothing to do on it now apart from moving the bot and clicking on the items.

I see. Don't forget to post progress updates on the Alakajam site then. :-)

i ran the script on Linux using wine and the following error message was printed to the console:

wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 00000036 at address 7BC6FAA3 (thread 0009), starting debugger...

wine also provided 3.9 kb of details; i think this is the most important part:

I can share more if you need.

Yoo, you should really share what your vision for the game was.
Programming is only one part of a gamejam. Do a little writeup for what you wanted the game mechanics to be. Something about the gameplayloop or the setting. Even if it's not in the executable, most people here will be able to extrapolate from a description how the game could've been. :)

I like the music and it's energy though. :)

Interesting idea, shame you didn't have enough time to execute it. Still though, good luck for the future!

Game looks great and mouse movement works well. That's about it, right? Music is a bit too repetitive but it's not that bad for a short loop. I wouldn't get this far with what you started, so congrats! It seems like a nice start for sure.
Not sure how I should rate this :D

Having the same error as Kesslwovv under Wine on Arch Linux.

Nice Idea, even if it didnt get to a playable state in time for the jam
