Sociophobia

by cappelnord - 48 Hour Compo Entry

UPDATE: Added a Windows build - couldn't test. Running it with Love2D will work.

---

Sorry, only got a Mac. No Windows Binary (and no Windows testing) You can run the Love2D Version on any OS using the Love2D runtime (hopefully).

The source is included. Rename the .love file to .zip and you can see all the inwards.

nice idea, but a little extreme killing people around. Still, with those conversations themes and a bomb in the hand... hm, understandable.

Short and not very difficult, but definitely fun! I love the panic mechanic, and I think it's an original take on the theme.

As for the 'killing', I didn't find it portrayed as such, but I agree that it's maybe a bit twisted when given some thought.

Works fine in Windows with the Love runtime as you suggested.

Game is interesting, I love the artwork, and the idea works great with the theme. Would be nice to have more visibility though. With the camera zoomed in it's hard to predict where people are, making it hard to avoid them.

Very nice entry though, I enjoyed it!

I can relate to this game; avoiding people, throwing grenades at them to avoid awkwardness. ;)

Windows binary is a must to everything not Web-based... But +1 for video!

Nice graphics. I thing music is killing th mood but in itself it's good enought for a 48h game.

Good work! Thx!

Very easy to get stuck at the beginning when you don't know what to do T_T. Audio was pretty good and I can see it being a pretty fun game :)

Good graphics, audio, theme and idea. However, once your panic counter is red, the character becomes completely uncontrollable and, as a result, dies. Didn't manage to reach the second area due to this :(

Quite a fun game. Loved the panic :)

For your first dare, great job! Wonderful mood, very fittingly awkward art. Panic was a really clever idea. :)

I feel that way about people too sometimes :)

I really like your art style!

This is a neat idea for a game. I like your take on the theme.

Dodging nosy people is kind of fun, but the killing seems unnecessary. I think I would like it better if there were more clever ways to distract people so you could get by them. Like: drop a dirty magazine like in Metal Gear Solid, or, I don't know, set off a fire alarm.

It would also be neat if there was a little bit of story. Instead of just "1, 2, 3, 4", it could have easily been like, "I'm at work, but I don't want to talk to anybody today. I have to check my computer, then make a copy, then drop off the copy at someone's desk, then go home."

Overall, good work!

Never wished for people to get out of my way so much as in this game! And I usually I don't really like people…

Nice idea and good art style. I got very fustrated when entering panic mode and can't really control the player.
