Rubber Ball in a Dark Room

by OdedS - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Messed around with Construct 2 for 7 hours, just to try out the software, and tried to make something cool - didn't work out, so I went for the art-y approach...

Is this a comment on the human condition? Probably not, but is there something more "alone" than a person bouncing a fluorescent-green rubber ball in a dark room?


There is no goal, grab ball with left-click.

Mouse cursor disappears when hovering over game screen.

Same problem as Acrux, mouse cursor disapprears ov the game area (Tested in firefox 7).

"but is there something more "alone" than a person bouncing a fluorescent-green rubber ball in a dark room?" A person without a fluorescent-green rubber ball? :P

I didn't have a cursor, either.

Thanks for the heads-up - seems firefox considers itself equipped with a touch-interface, and thus hides the cursor...

What's the policy on fixing game-breaking, browser-related interface issues after the 48hrs?

Mr. Wonko - well said, my friend, well said... this is one philosophical question that will hunt us forever.

Fits the theme perfectly, but isn't really a game.

"What do you mean the theme is, "Alone"? We only know how to make bouncing ball simulators!"

On the other hand.. It was sort of accurate to the theme, and it made me laugh too :D

Unless I'm missing something, it's not a game (grabbing ball with mouse doesn't work much, after a while it just bounces here and there without me influencing anything.

I wasn't disapointed at all. It's a rubber ball in a dark room.
