Throw Your Weight Around

Throw Your Weight Around is a wrestling game that me and a couple of my friends have been working on for the Gain Jam, and we’re excited to release it to the public! The premise of the game is that you’ll be in charge of the Glexton Gladiators, a team of college wrestlers, and it is up to you to manage their weights and lead them to victory!

the characters are girls, boys, furries…?

They’re human women. It’s a pretty interesting game regardless of that, though

The game just starts auto skipping to the next week after week 10/11 for me, you don’t get a chance to adjust the girls diets. (edit: yeah, it’s def something in week 11 that triggers this, my guess is it doesn’t trigger a “reset” and set up for the next diet change interaction and just autoskips to the next week, week 17 also does this) Also the end of week description always says the wrong thing for the action picked, example: it says “maybe she is cutting too much?” even if I have her bulking.

Ah sorry about that. The games got some weird bugs in it still. If our programmer has time I’ll see if I can have him fix that. As for the “Maybe she is cutting too much”, that’s meant to let the player know that the girl would be doing better if she weighed more, not necessarily what her current diet is

Ah, I see.
I found another weird bug where in some match ups the game will give me a point and said the other team forfeited for weight classes I don’t have anyone competing in, giving me a point when I didn’t deserve one.

I’ve noticed that bug while playtesting as well, we’re working on figuring it out but thanks for letting us know it’s not just me :smiley:

Great idea, but unfortunately the game is incredibly buggy at the moment. The individual matches are impossible to lose, even when you barely field anybody the matches that should be lost by forfeit end up going to you. I even had a run where in the final round only 1 girl was thin enough to play in any weight class, and I ended up winning that round. As for the overall game, it’s seemingly impossible to win because the game doesn’t keep track of your score. No matter how many matches you win, it says your score is 0-0-0 and you lose the game. The idea is still really great though, and I’d really like to see this game’s bugs ironed out and maybe even fleshed out some more after the game jam.

I’m glad you appreciate the concept! Yeah we really liked the idea as well, and this was our first ever project. It was fun to test our game-making abilities and I’d honestly be happy to iron this game out as well.

I am the programmer of the game. I just wanted to thank everyone who mentioned bugs here. I was able to get them fixed before the deadline which should help us do a bit better in the comp. To clarify, the bugs fixed include the team record actually works as intended now, and weeks past week 11 shouldn’t auto skip anymore. Working on getting the new game to you

Version 1.2 should be up now

Yeah, an intriguing concept. One that was I looking forward to revisiting when I got up this morning after giving it a try last night. Realising you needed to adjust weights to meet the competition and not just bulk everyone up, gave it a spark of actual strategic management which I like.

Bugs aside, it’s a plus from me! :+1:

The .exe doesn’t run for me :frowning:

Does anybody else have this issue?

Works for me. A lot of Ren’Py games tend to have a long, invisible load time though.

forfeiting by not putting any girls out isn’t working after the 2nd match. It’s just saying I’m sending 0 out as a wrestler and sometimes 0 can win/lose… despite 0 being I assume the variable you meant to cause automatic forfeit…
