    Exposed - 01101101 - Jam Entry

    What did you do?!
    You destroyed one of your mad-scientist/uncle's World Balls...
    Poor old guy, he put some much time in making the creatures on it evolve.
    Well now it's time to make up for it :)
    Use whatever you see fit in the lab and show Evolution who's the boss! ;)

    We just finished the enhanced, post-LD version!
    Of course if you're going to rate our game in all fairness, you should play the "72h" version we submitted at the end of the Jam.
    But then, if you liked the game, be sure to try the final version, wich is A LOT clearer and thus easier :)

    Awesome, i really like the art and the music.

    Really slick work! The soundtrack is divine! Who came up with it!? Graphics are lovely too!

    Very nice visuals, start screen gag made me chuckle.
    But I couldn't figure out what the hell am I supposed to do.
    "It's not working" and "I think it did something" is kind of terrible as a feedback.

    01101101 says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 4:59pm

    Yeah, working on the feedbacks right now...
    You need to use the magnifying lens to check your progress.
    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:18pm

    Thank you all :)
    @ aaronsnoswell : you can check my sounds here : http://soundcloud.com/mathieuhallouin

    Really good, but it's hard to know what to do and not to random click on everything to see if it's work!

    The art and sound are great. I like the concept a lot as well.

    Like some others have mentioned, it was hard to figure out what was going on. I think it would help if you could see your little guys at all times so that in addition to "I think something happened," you'd see what changed. I spent a lot of time walking back to the magnifying glass.

    Overall, I enjoyed it, primarily because of the art and music. With a little work, the gameplay could be as good as the rest of it!

    I love the art and music... I just wish I knew how to get those dang LEGS. I got everything else...

    I can't wait to play the final version! Great job all around!

    Pretty cool! I really wish some descriptive text would appear next to the things I moused over though.

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:11am

    Wow, so much depth and polish! I must admit the objective was confusing at first, and while I tried to evolve the traits needed on the board I could never seems to succeed through just blunt guessing. Still, wonderful art and music!

    @mathieu.hallouin: Aha! You did the soundtrack to /follow too; no wonder the style sounded so familiar!

    This is really cute! Think a little bit more about accessibility next time :)

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 1:10pm

    @DDRkirby(ISQ) : ;) Yes i decided to work with 01101101 and Carduus again ! A lot of pleasure to work with us !! :-D

    Fabulous ! Handled like a boss.
    Stunning music, pixel perfect, no bug !

    just an observation : we have to think ... it doesn't matter it's excellent

    Loved the hard version, good challenge.
    And the easter egg, too. ;)

    Outstanding game! I like how the graphics are made. The main music sounds mischievous. The sound effects are great! I like how those little creatures are made with science! Almost everything is awesome.

    Fireblend says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 4:45am

    Really polished, although also a little short; as it stands I see it more as a toy, although an incredibly shiny and entertaining one; the visuals keep me going. Good job!

    01101101 says ...

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! :)

    Best game I've seen!

    Cake&Code says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:15pm

    Totally neat! The graphics are wonderful, the audio is perfect and really really well done (it's very "Download the OST for this Game!"). It's really short, and I found it strange that it kept recording my number of actions even though I technically finished the creation. (I got the hair and trunk one in 10 actions, yet when I was trying to find more things to do it kept saying I did it in (23 actions). I've yet to try the enhanced version, but I'll consider it! The ability to choose is a nice touch. :D Great job!

    01101101 says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:30pm

    @Cake&Code: Thanks! :) The enhanced version has a proper end and tells you exactly what you have to do and when you've gone too far. Also there is a "hard" mode now, wich makes a game last a little bit longer ;)

    Keirua says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 9:56pm

    Wow. The realisation is impressive, I really love the music and the graphic style. It's really done in the spirit of the classic point and clicks, and it works very well.
    You guys are really talented ! And you kept the secret that you were doing something that awesome on the IRC channel ! I'm definitely looking forward to see some more of your stuff.

    Apr 26, 2012 @ 10:08pm

    Well done. All in all a superb experience. I hoped you where our artist ;-).

    Thanks all! :)
    @Keirua: I know! Last LD I was more active on the chan and Twitter, but this time we were so late and tired that we had nothing to show before the sunday... Plus we were gathered with other LDarers and livestreaming the whole weekend so we were pretty distracted already :P
    I promise next time we will take time again for the social stuff ^^ That's what LD is all about right? ;)

    As always, beautiful eyecandy! I tried the 72h version, didn't finish it at the time and then read on twitter that you've improved the feedback. Went back and had fun! Thanks!

    WOW! Like an old adventure game! Brilliant!

    Pretty cool game. Graphics are excellent and music is fitting.

    tequibo says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 7:33am

    Played it again after update - excellent, please consider making more adventure titles:) I've played previous entry for "alone" - liked it too.

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 6:44pm

    wow, impressive and fun.. even tho I didn't bring those thingies to life yet ;)

    Tom 7 says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 12:09am

    You guys are crazy good. This one is light on gameplay (I was just clicking randomly and actually it was pretty frustrating) but it's so smooth and the graphics and music are totally pro. I'm jealous.

    karnakgames says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 12:59am

    5/5? Totally. Original, beautiful, fun!

    Awesome. I killed so many of those creatures... but is was worth it! Harrharrharr!!! >:D

    Apr 29, 2012 @ 5:56am

    No idea what effects my dubstepping/microwaving/poster-oggling was doing, but all very entertaining and looked and sounded amazing. Great job!

    Stunning! Found everything except the eyes.

    R3ason says ...
    Apr 30, 2012 @ 5:04am

    Guys, this was brilliant! Took me 82 tries and I killed 16 creatures, but it was good enough to keep at it until I won! Excellent graphics and sound! Just. Amazing! Thanks!

    01101101 says ...
    Apr 30, 2012 @ 9:36am

    Thank you! :D
    Each game requires you to evolve a different creature, so you can play it again and again ;)

    Fantastic job. It was fun all the way to the end. Very creative. Great graphics and audio too.

    May 3, 2012 @ 12:57pm

    At first I thougt "It's too short. You could create more levels!", but then I read it's randomly generated. Great job!

    nornagon says ...
    May 5, 2012 @ 8:03am

    Lovely art, excellent sound effects and music. It was too hard to figure out what to do though :( (in particular, I couldn't work out how to get a trunk.)

    May 7, 2012 @ 6:20am

    Audio and visuals are stunning :)
    The game it self was alot of trail and error which was a little bit frustrating. But still overall I really liked it.

    I love the art and the music, and the gameplay, and the humor, and everything really.

    EXCELLENT! Great arts, great music, a lot of references I love it! good job!

    Thanks guys! :D

    May 10, 2012 @ 5:58am

    At last I tried this game! And this is brillant, as I expected! Love the title screen, love the art, the idea, the music...As some people said, the only problem would be that there is nothing much to do except clicking randomly and see what happens, no real puzzle. Now I'm gonna try the post-jam version!

    Pierrec says ...
    May 10, 2012 @ 6:09am

    OK...the post-jam version is just perfect!

    01101101 says ...
    May 10, 2012 @ 7:17am

    Haha thanks! :D Yeah we kinda failed the jam version, the goal and effects are unclear. Glad you liked the post-jam version! :)

    May 12, 2012 @ 10:02pm

    Top marks for graphics and audio. Gameplay was a little annoying, but I see you fixed it post-compo! Great job, catchy music!

    KevinWorkman says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 1:46am

    I had trouble getting into this one since I had no idea what to do. The idea seems interesting, but without feedback it was really tough to know what was happening. Also, it seems slightly unfair to have the post-compo version be the default version while the competition is still going on.

    johanp says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 7:27am

    Very well put together, good job! Only thing that bothers me is the walking around. Takes too long to check if what you did actually got any result.

    May 13, 2012 @ 10:46pm

    Nice graphics but I got tired of trying random things.
