This was my 4th ludum dare and my first not to have a game done. I got a bit cocky and thought i could make a more narrative experience but got bogged down by a large asset list. Most of the interaction was simple on paper, the player just clicks on stuff how hard could that be? However, when it came to executing my plans i eventually realized things were less similar (therefore requiring more varied and specific rules). Also i wanted a butt-tonne of models which i think i got 1/3 done lol.
So about 3 hours before finish i gave up and ordered take-away though once it arrived the guilt of not submitting got to me and i threw some of the assets together in a rushed mess into a thing. Its hard to be more specific than thing but im not wholly ashamed of it. Anywho if you want to play something walk-simulatory and different give it a go. or watch the video below but you can only do one or the other.

    Too bad you didn’t get to finish it, but hopefully you got something valuable from it anyway for your next LD! I just participated in my first LD but I am learning from this post that with multiple LD in the bag one must be cautious to not to aim too high. Would it have been possible to get the game to a “complete” state and then add additional assets and interactions as time would have permitted do you think?
