A Weekend Alone

by NoLan Labs - Jam Entry

This video game is designed to bring you the exciting experience of participating (alone) in a Ludum Dare competition! Control your lonely character as he/she works to balance coding with food, toilet, and sleep needs and beat the 48- or 72-hour clock.

Controls: LEFT/RIGHT arrows to move; SPACE to interact with objects. In-game help is enabled by default. After finishing the game, post to the leaderboard to compare your time to game jammers around the world.

Ahahahaha, that was brilliant!
Although I would appreciate it if there weren't those glowing arrows telling me when to replenish what in a game where my only activity is to control the replenishment!.. First time (to indicate the location) would totally suffice.

The game was harder than the jam it's self.

This is a pretty accurate model of the Ludum Dare, except usually the coding part takes a little more thought.
(Where is all that urine coming from though? I didn't drink anything)

A smart idea, but a bit too slow for my liking.

This is delightfully meta! I don't recall spending quite that much time on the toilet or the fridge, but I think if I had I too might have failed at the 98% mark. Great show!

Cool idea, but I didn't have to use the toilet half as much during the real thing! :)

Funny, and hard! That's actually exactly what it looks like when I program, but I usually eat at the computer. :)

Great, though I didn't try to find out what happens if I don't go to the loo...

haha thats a good one, good soundtrack and at least for me it got a lot harder to balance everything the close I got to completion. Good stuff!

Well, that settles it. I'm definitely entering Ludum Dare 23.
