I’m not going to finish

It’s true

I have a very basic enginey thing, but no way I’m going to get decent gameplay in. Don’t know whether to keep working on it during the time allotted, or cut my losses and do productive things instead.

More Progress

I will literally never finish in time


Basic line of sight, ducking, half walls added. Needed: Actual gameplay, fun, a miracle to get this finished on time

My Hotline Miami ripoff is going well.


It doesn’t look like much, because it isn’t. I’m off for the night as well.


No time to complain about theme, I’ve got work to do.

To continue my epic series of wallpapers, here’s one for LD33. I might or might not be in depending on the timingld33wp_1600-900

Well, it could theoretically be advantageous for me to add the theme into my game. Meaning that I forgot.

I wonder if just having an optional pong minigame would suffice. My original idea was themed, but it got shifted out for a more pure financial simulation focus (With zany antics, of course)

Ugh, gotta think of integration possibilities.

Nearly done

I’ll probably pop in some music, then Realistic Office Simulator 2015 will be complete!

Coming soon, yall! Be sure to give it a play when it’s done!

Just finished with an extended intro sequence, which also doubles as showing the credits and structuring the ingame days. Pretty nifty if I do say so myself.


Now I’ve just got to get a complex economic simulation up and running, and I’ll be golden.

I wasn’t really feeling the previous idea, a continuation of a series of surreal horror games I’ve been making for Mini LDs, so I’m shelving it for a zany office sim instead. Realistic Office Simulator 2015! (Working title)


Just getting a dialog system in now.

I am the face

Just thought I’d post this face archive. Da’ Face, and Da’ Face II: Faces can be found HERE and HERE respectively.

Stay tuna’d for Da’ Face III: Face Off, an adventure in ASCII ART, next week on MINI LD!

I’m done

I’m done. No music, no sound, no help file, utterly unbalanced.


Here’s the game! Enjoy!



Ahh, crap, crap, crap crap crap crap

Might get something done before tomorrow evening, might not. I’m maybe out though. My motivation just drained away this afternoon, and although I have a pretty solid platforming/fighting engine, hell if I know what I’ll to with it.


So, if I’m struck by something cool in time, I might still enter otherwise, I’m out.

Some progress?

I’ve got some dummies in that you can beat up. Attacks are working well, and the movement feels smooth and fun.

I guess it’s about time I got some actual content in this thing
