This is my entry for Glinny's Cauldron Jam, using Glinny's ingredients. I made it with my brother over a 4 week period. We used Unity, and all assets have been created by us, except for the font.


The scenario is that you've been cursed by a Demon and you're looking for a potion that will cure you. You have arrived at a Witch's house in a far-off land. The Witch can help you, but she needs you to collect 3 ingredients.

You use an item called a Witch Ball to collect monsters and then throw them into the cauldron. If you've captured a monster in the Witch Ball you can throw the ball to kill enemies. To release the monster, just throw it at a wall.

Throwing 3 ingredients into the cauldron will make a potion. Try different ingredients and see what you get.


Controls

Move: WASD or arrow keys

Throw ball: SHIFT

Interact/Dialog: E or SPACE

Pause: ESC


Spoilers below.


Glinny's Ingredients

  • Instant death from touching the SIDE of a spike. Not the dangerous points, but the side of the spikes.

  • Every town has a mandatory Bad Anime Hot Spring scene.
  • SLOGAN: Get ready to explode your balls into a firestorm of dust and skeletons.
  • CELEBRITY LIKENESS: Justin Bieber as "Squeelin" Shay Higgins

Extra ingredients

  • Ambiguous selection options at the end of a long string of dialog.
  • You are punished for doing what the game tells you to do (pig recipe).
  • Annoying music.
  • Game developer is in the game.

Wonderfully vile! Great job.

Really cool game! The art style and music was amazing and I liked that you could try putting any combination int to the cauldron :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
