Smited - an arcade farming game / divine wrath simulator. Submitted to the 2023 Pursuing Pixels Game Jam.

5/27/23 Update: The infamous "axe position" bug has been patched, thanks to Achie72!

P#130168 2023-05-26 12:42 ( Edited 2023-05-28 03:06)

runtime error line 1169 tab 0
            axe_dir = point_direction(player.x, player.y, axe_pos[1], axe_pos[2])
attempt to index local 'axe_pos' (a nil value)
at line 0 (tab 0)

Got this little error after the Flaming stage started, while trying to pick up my shovel. First flame appeared, ace was offscreen snatched by a goblin, on the ground.

Good find! And thanks for including the actual error text!

It does, thank you! When the twisting vines spawn, the logic tries to leave a clear path to your axe to avoid a soft lock. We did not account for scenarios when goblins had stolen the axe. Hopefully I will push out a fix tonight. Again, great find!!

run 1: what is anything, how do I play, I cannot parse the screen
run 2: built a biiiig farm, planted it, my first crops came in right as I ran out of time, rip
run 3-6:

run 3: okay wow this game is not what I expected. interesting! turned off the fire and won (score 1)
run 4: no more goblins! score 9
run 5: died on day 1 -- stretched myself too thin!
run 6: score 12! er, actually the game crashed (same axe_dir = point_direction bug) on the last day, but I had the pumpkins already grown and could have finished with score 12

run 7:

tried to leave the map by axing the top-right rock. no luck, darn

some more thoughts:

  • I'm a bit surprised there's no bonus or something for farming well
  • it's interesting how the game feels suited to procgen, and yet its a single map -- I like it! (it lets me plan my route)
  • I wish I could press Z to drop a tool, for when I need to go retrieve my tools. to get around it I planted a lot of seeds -- afaik that's the best way to get an empty hand

great game, lots of fun! not what I expected from a farming game, lots of fun surprises :)

Thank you so much the detailed breakdown! This kind of feedback is massively helpful for future updates. I'm glad you enjoyed the game!!

I suck

> I wish I could press Z to drop a tool, for when I need to go retrieve my tools.

Yeah, +1 for this one. Also slight question, why does it feel like the seed pouch flies away from my hand? Is that a bug, or some kind of feature?

P#130243 2023-05-28 11:27

That's another known "quirk" haha. Each packet has a finite number of seeds. The seeds should respawn at the barn door, but if the player has farmed directly in front of the barn, the game picks the nearest tile southeast of that location. Definitely a confusing choice, it was our quick-and-dirty solution for the jam!

P#130244 2023-05-28 11:50

Oh okay, no worries, I was just confused on why it happened! Good to know, thanks!
