The Lonely Sphincter - crackerblocks - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The Lonely Sphincter.

You are a giant worm and people want to be friends with you, but you eat them so you are lonely.

Controls: Mouse moves, Space to bite, Z to toggle posterior clenching.

There is no goal. It's just a toy at this point. The bar at the top of the screen doesn't do anything. Make noises with your mouth as you play.

I wish I had more time. There's something really compelling about eating people as a giant worm. The main thing I would like to add is helicopters.

* people will keep spawning forever, therefore it will eventually start to chug your computer.

I wish they stayed inside of me! nom nom nom!!

I found this to be amusingly fun :) Work on it more and release !
Something about eating people is just rewarding, especially munching on them to breka their bodyparts off

Remarkably fun! Wish you'd had time to put a goal on it. Are you familiar with the Death Worm games which also feature a giant worm flying around (from underground) and eating people? I think that may be phone-only, but the gameplay is mostly like Moby Dick 2.

Anyway, I hope you do something with this! Good stuff.

Incredibly funny! Really enjoyed playing it for some minutes. :) Some kind of end or challenge would have been nice. The worm could also start smaller and grow over time as he eats. Or he would grow a bit each time the stomach is full, also increasing difficulty at the same time, or something like that.

Wow ! That's a Katamari Damacy Rank game ! Very fun to play !
It just need some way to make it easier to eat people, maybe by sucking people inside for one second when you open the mouse

Funny little game, not really that related to the theme though. It entertained me for a good while.

Nomnomnomnom. This is surprisingly fun! :-D Needs a bigger mouth, and separate controls for the teeth and gullet. Also, it would be nice if the citizens started saying more desperate things over time :-D

Nomnomnom!

Absolutely brilliant! Needs to be a bit easier to get the people to stay inside, but it's really fun.
This *needs* to become a full game.

This games teach us a valuable lesson. Do not do flying stunts with your mouth open after eating.
Loved the game, really funny and that is the most memorable nom nom nom face I ever seen!

I want to cite the people above to express my feelings playing this game:

"nom nom nom!!"
"Nomnomnomnom."
"om nom nom nom"

Very fun :)
