Interesting Mechanic, i could not figure out how to progress after the door maybe that's the end?

Aha, very sneaky. I almost gave up on the 2nd level, but took another try and got it. I love the funny eyes placed onto the various objects. Good use of the theme, and very nice models. Nice work :)

@Juin After the door, you have to find the exit to leave the "second" room.
And thanks all ;)

I had a lot of fun making everything into flower pots

Interesting idea, but it runs terribly.

Very nice concept and graphics.
I just wanted to report a bug: I was able to pass through the wall to the left of the exit without revealing it and actually exit the building while transformed into a binder.

@sbeif this is possible, the colliders are really bad.

fun game and very well put together graphics, but very short. I had fun turning everything into a shelf :)

Hahaha pretty fun!

Check the collider for the wall next to the duct in the second level! You can pass throw it!

Fun game! wish it had a few more rooms.

Excellent. short and sweet. had a lot of fun playing with the physics

This was pretty damn funny with a really unique concept. Although it didn't run as smooth, and it was really short (i think it literally took me less than 2 minutes) I really enjoyed this game and would like to see it developed further!

nicoplv says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 7:46pm

@monkeybit29 and others, I think I will take time to continue the development of Copy-Paste during the next weeks. Fix all errors, adding more objects and puzzles. Thanks for your comments ;)

I almost gave up on room 2. But then the comments made me go back. Cool game :D

loved the idea - great use of the theme

Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:35am

Loved this! Only thing I wish is that it had more sound! Could make the experience extra cool.

Id love your thoughts on my entry 'Titos Revenge'-

Interesting concept of gameplay, nice graphics, but too short and controls too sensitive.

icefallgames says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:44am

I thought the controls were very difficult to use. Very hard to aim at an object, and it would be nice to have some feedback that I'd copied something.

Once I figured it out though, it was pretty cool swapping objects and seeing what would happen! Plants flying into the air!

I'm not really sure what my goal is though - got through the door and then wreaked havoc in the office. That was fun, but then what?

Graphics are nicely done.

Really cool game, was a bit difficult to aim at objects

Love the humor of it and the mechanics. Quite hard to know where we go and when it finishes

Great graphics, physics and concept. Maybe the most ambitious game I've played so far during this jam! It just lacks some audio to really become a hit!

tentacode says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 5:42pm

That computer is hyper cute! Too quick to finish but cool potential! Also a aim cursor would have helped a bit!

I'm on a touch pad and don't have a "middle button" :(

Good game, it was hard to find the exit but after copying and pasting objects randomly I found it :)

Apr 20, 2016 @ 7:41am

too small but should add more challenges! ;)

Good job! I like the graphics. Nice concept

Lovely 3d art, cool swapping mechanic :) Wish it were a tad bit longer, but still it's a very fun physics playground!

Loved the eyes being drawn on everything when shapeshifted, nice little game, I had fun with it.

The idea is very funny and has a lot of potential for a comedy game. Very clever use of the theme.

You should add a way to lock the mouse to the game window in the web wersion. Anso, some kind of pointer would really help focus better on things.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Togimaro says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 6:49pm

Cool idea! A pointer for the center of the screen may be cool! And great 3d model!
Good job

Wooow! Great idea!

it's one of my favourites so far but i have things to criticise. you almost lost me at the start.. but i was courious. i had to switch to my workstation because on a macbook i can't play.. maybe you could provide keyboard alternatives to rightclick and middleclick.
it took me some time to figure out what the point is.. and when i found the hole there was nothing triggering in it.
anyway.. i really love the graphics and the lighting. and you made a creative way to deal with the theme. maybe you could have add more and easier levels to come into the gameplay better.

nicoplv says ...
Apr 24, 2016 @ 2:47pm

Thanks for your constructive critise @ploerre (and all others) you have completly right.
With your feedbacks ... and mine ;) I will update Copy-Paste during the next weeks (or months) to "clean" this prototype and adding more levels.

Apr 24, 2016 @ 3:14pm

I made it out! IM FREE!

kabel says ...
Apr 24, 2016 @ 8:30pm

Nice! I made it through!
Great job with the gameplay and the design, the googly eyes look really funny!
This is kind of like our game, Goons (also on LD35).

Apr 25, 2016 @ 3:05pm

Lovely graphics! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :)

Nice game... loved all the shape-shifting and eye-rolling!

Why would a computer leave an office? (Just kidding)
I love the eyes of all these objects, and the copy past concept is very nice.
Thanks for making this game. Best escape room of the Jam for now!

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
