Headphones On

by ektoutie - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Headphones create a bubble of solitude. On the bus, at work, while developing LD games - everyone can be as alone as they want, at any time.

Known issues pending fix: Final score display not working.
Features missing: more enemy types&interactions, music.

Nice idea, a bit short maybe (or a bigger map would do the trick). The audio was annoying and I couldn't see my final score...
But I had a lot of fun playing it!

A web build or a video would be nice for us lonely Windows guys. :)

I don't have a Mac and VirtualBox is too slow to play games; can't rate it.

Browser or Windows build are unlikely to happen unless I either rewrite this entirely in Unity or some other sane tool, or splash out for another GM version :( Turns out GameMaker Mac was a pretty bad choice to work with. Now that the Christmas dust has settled a bit I'll get to fixing the final score display and will try to at least get a video together - it's not very long or complex so everything that's in this build I can show off relatively easily. For those who have Game Maker for Windows, the Source download should just play in it at least.

A video would be great for me because I don't own a Mac either.

New way to interpret the alone theme but it's only a "goto" game for most part. Good gfx though, and great implementation of this kind of game !
