    Ludum Dare 23

    April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World

    Back to Results

    Predicament - orangepascal - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Created in HTML5, audio only working in Chrome, game works in Chrome, Firefox and Safari.. crashes in Opera.

    So basically: use chrome for best results ;)

    Used a simple HTML framework I had as base, but it got completely rewritten in the end so nothing left from any frameworks (also reason sound isn't crossbrowser, etc)

    removed the background music, not sure if WolframTones allows it under their ToS.

    Apr 22, 2012 @ 5:24pm

    Wow, total work of art. And surprising in the end ;)

    Nice simple game 5/5 (graphics, interface). I had to check source for some "tips" ;P

    orangepascal says ...
    Apr 22, 2012 @ 8:00pm

    that's called cheating!! but I figured some would do so I named things pretty clearly in the source ;)

    Love it :)

    Thotep says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:51am

    Haha, that was a good one! Short, but polished.

    rik says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:21am

    Loved it, amazing :) Little bit fiddly switching items once there was a lot of things on the ground, but not too bad.

    KhaoTom says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:34am

    Short and sweet. Nice presentation, and great timing with the dialogue. Good work!

    Daniel says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:42am

    Nice. Running around looking for items and trying to combine them in multiple ways gives me an nostalgic feeling.

    ineap09 says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:51am

    Wow, this perfect in almost every way. The game was challenging, but also very fun and rewarding. The ending was hilarious!

    keely says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:55am

    AAAAAAWESOME! 5/5 all over the place. Funny, excellent graphics, uses the theme perfectly and great all around polish. My fav.

    chartinboy says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:09am

    Good :) Shame audio doesn't work in ff, but i know thats an html5 thing, not you!

    Fun game, though tricky to work out!

    Daniel says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:11am

    This grizzled cube-man makes MacGyver look bad! Your game is marvelous; thank you!

    This was really fun. I enjoyed it :)

    robcozzens says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:36am

    Perfect old school adventure. Most of the puzzles are funny and don't make any sense at all... but because the level is so small, it doesn't take long to stumble on the solution.
    In full-size adventures I always worried that I missed some small thing hours earlier.

    Apr 23, 2012 @ 9:25am

    Nice little adventure! Gamelay feels quite good.

    As far as I know WolframTunes are usable, but I don't use them as they all sound kinda same-y.

    wibblymat says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:18am

    I dropped off the eldge accidentally and left both the skull and the wings up there, so I was stuck first time around.

    Other than that, brilliant!

    True Valhalla says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:31am

    Really good! I think these small, contained environments are a great interpretation of the theme. Interesting and pretty :)

    Evgis says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:31am

    Great, very original and cool!

    aaronsnoswell says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:35am

    Absolutely brilliant. Hands down the best entry I have seen yet. AMAZING work! Would love to see a blog writeup of the process and things you learned. Love the art, sfx, fact that it is a html5 game. 5/5.

    ncannasse says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:54am

    A bit short but loved it :)

    steamgirl says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 11:55am

    Simple, yet brilliant! Really enjoyed it! The great thing is that although I couldn't figure it out each piece of the puzzle straight away, the variables were limited so I could experiment with what I had to make it work!

    And so funny as well!

    Proch says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 12:35pm

    amazing.... just... the best

    datahaven says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 1:50pm

    Fun game - had to cheat and look at the code to work it out, though.
    Found picking the objects up a bit fiddly sometimes when there were a few on the floor.
    Shame about lack of sound on Firefox version.

    greg20man says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 2:21pm

    I really enjoyed this game, great art, great use of theme, and I could see this being expanded upon to make an actual casual game. Really great work.

    Lidfrid says ...

    can't exit...Y u can't EXIT! i have those wings...damn it! T_T Good work

    Graphics are amazing, fits the theme well, and the puzzles are fun. Nice work!

    Fireblend says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 2:57pm

    Short and sweet really is a perfect description for this one :D

    awesome game! The art really allows the mood to set in

    deepnight says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 3:19pm

    Very very good overall execution! The art is particularly good :)

    It's funny we did choose the same interpretation of the theme (a player imprisoned in a "tiny world").

    Great job!

    matheus23 says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 3:59pm

    One of the best entrys played until now :)

    orangepascal says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 5:14pm

    thanks for all the awesome response guys!
    and for those who think you can't leave the cave.. you can.. you aren't done until you are out ;)

    Apr 23, 2012 @ 5:42pm

    Great graphics and gameplay. Short, but you knew that ;-) I hope you do more with this, could be the start of a cool game.

    lifenoodles says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:11pm

    Really cool little game, not sure if I liked the end but it was a great use of the theme.

    chinchang says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:16pm

    really liked the cute character and cool graphics/animations. wondering here n there and figuring out stuff was interesting. brilliant end :)

    Erifdex says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 6:21pm

    Awesome! Really enjoyed it! However I did have to restart the first time as -SPOILER- the fire didn't start when I moved the glasses :( Second time worked perfectly though :D Great ending!

    bompo says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:00pm

    Brilliant, reminded me a bit of the old monkey island puzzles.

    fanatiko says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:30pm

    Awesome art and very interesting use of the theme.

    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:47pm

    Really nice, short and sweet. The graphics were very well done, didn't hear any audio though but I guess that requires Chrome. Nice job!

    kroltan says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:04pm

    Great game!
    I liked trying all the combinations to escape, but the ending was... unexpected.
    Audio didn't work on Nightly...

    piterlouis says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:07pm

    claustrophobic, but cool XD

    icefox says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 8:38pm


    So... is getting taken away by [SPOILERS] the GOOD ending? Pretty sweet little game.

    mikolalysenko says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 9:40pm

    Great job! Especially with getting the audio working in the browser.

    Pixelulsar says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:18pm

    Great game, thought maybe a bit too easy, because I can never solve escape games like this :) Graphics were cool and it's and interesting use of the theme.

    Albatr says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:22pm

    KevinZuhn says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:03am

    You really lead me in logical circles there, but that's to be expected in a one-room adventure! Top-notch and funny to boot.

    Danik says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:10am

    Short but great!

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 4:05pm

    It was short but a very charming game all the same. I appreciate what you were trying to do here.

    Sheep says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:15pm

    Sweet, short game :)

    omaha says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:22pm

    Very nice, love the polish. I couldn't figure out how to get out of the cave, will have to give it another shot when I'm not at work :)

    [Comments and ratings from this account come from various team members]
    Audio did not work for me in firefox so I switched over to chrome and everything worked fine. Fantastic graphics and feel! Pitty about the music, I think that would have added a lot. The gameplay seemed a little bit lacking. Most of the game for me was just clicking everything onto everything else to see if anything happened rather than thinking things through. Still a fantastic game overall though.

    whitetigle says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:14pm

    just great ! I didn't make it yet, but it's just great ! bravo !

    firstrowgames says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 10:17pm

    Very polished and nice game.
    Its really short,but its fun and has great art.
    Really awesome work,would love to play more if you add to it.

    Really good game! Nice puzzle mechanics and use of the theme. The art is great too!

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 7:53am

    Wow. This game blew away my expectations for an HTML5 game. Grade A work.

    daandruff says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:13am

    Reminds me of the Grow-games. Awesome game! If this would have been a multiscreen adventure, I would have paid for it! Super!

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 11:41am

    Great little game. Polished and fun.

    Thotor says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 3:30pm

    This is great ! Feels like point and click adventure but with more sensation of interaction.
    Great fir for the theme

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:37pm

    Fantastic entry. Little short but oh so sweet. Always love your art style.

    Jhelle says ...

    Such a fantastic and fun game. I would love to see this expanded to an full-length room-by-room puzzler.

    I love the art ! One of the best tiny entry <3

    summaky says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 4:04pm

    The end was… surprising. But I guess I escaped >_< It liked a lot the graphics and I wish I could hear the music (no Chrome here, but I see that you removed it anyway.) The “combine objects” has definitively a nostalgic feeling for me and it fits the theme very well indeed.

    Apr 26, 2012 @ 4:29pm

    Great great work really enjoyed it and it looks awesome!

    derrickdool says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 8:19pm

    Nice combinations in this puzzler. Great Entry.
    Minor touches like dirt kicking up when you jump goes a long way as well.

    chambers says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 8:52pm

    I really like the game, the mood and the artstyle. Very well polished. But I've been playing it for a long time and I'm stuck. People have been praising the ending and I'd like to see it though, before I can rate it =/ any tips? I don't know what to do with the [SPOILERS] Parachute and bat glider [/SPOILERS]

    orangepascal says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 9:23pm

    chambers, msg me on twitter (@orangepascal) and I can give you some hints without spoiling it here

    derosa says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 12:56am

    Hahaha, loved the ending! Took me awhile to figure out the last step, but was really worth! Thanks!

    BenW says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 1:03am

    Excellent. A few times I accidentally combined items without realizing it and had to go back and replay to see what actually happened.

    Shigor says ...

    Awesome little puzzler. Really like the artwork.

    johannhat says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 2:53am

    I love this! You took the theme and made a fun little challenge out of it. Gives me something to think about for my next game jam, for sure.

    Like others, I could only get the sound working in Chrome. I really like how you handled the dialogue and especially handled surprise with the player. Nice!

    HeuGamer says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:00am

    Excellent work! Simple and fun just the way i love it.

    Suese says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 4:09am

    Solid solid entry. Wish there was music. Should have left it in there and said to hell with the IP issues. Music would have made this a 5 star entry.

    marudziik says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 5:59am

    Audio didn't work for me (Firefox), so until I install chrome I'm not rating it, but the rest is really great. Definitely one of the best entries.

    PabloAM says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 9:56am

    Very good game! Good idea and good polish.

    I had fun playing with!

    HTML5 the future! :P

    I don't have or want Chrome on my PC, and I feel I wouldn't be able to fully enjoy it without audio, let alone rate it...is there no other way to play it with audio?

    raarlac says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 2:46pm

    Awesome game man! one of my favorites :D

    orangepascal says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 3:38pm

    @VDZ no other way right now.. guess it's like me not being able to check out your game, cause I don't have or want windows on my mac ;)

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 7:26pm

    Well, that certainly was a predicament. Nice graphics, and I love the simple controls doing so much. Had a little trouble with dropping items and trying to pick up others.

    edbadiux says ...

    Moth says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 11:29am

    Gorgeous pixel art on the environment! A fun single room puzzle game- I like where it goes with the theme.

    I thought the item combinations the solution takes and I guess not much can be said without spoilers! I found the ending pretty funny and to be an interesting solution to the whole conflict :P It's fun!

    TenTonToon says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 3:39pm

    Very nice pixel art and use of the theme.
    A little bit too short and straightforward, though. But it shows quite some promise for a future full-length game.

    Very nice! One of the best entries I've played.
    Your tiny world stayed surprising and dynamic throughout.

    Shame for the lack of music, but all in all a wonderful little game exactly fitting the jam theme.

    Your story actually made me want to know what happens next.

    Oh heck yeah.

    Great compo game. Solid graphics, good puzzles, lame funny jokes, good interaction, yeah...loved this.

    Used Chrome; no audio. Not sure what's up there. I'll skip that category.

    really nice idea. The design are great. With music it will be even better.

    Great work :)

    I'm struggling to say something that hasn't already been said. Great job. It would be cool to see more bite-sized levels of this one.

    For some reason I got almost to the top of the cave and couldn't get out - not sure if I missed something or not.

    Anyway, this was fun - thanks!

    SO RAD! Needs audio to be perfect... unless there IS audio... but it doesn't play in Firefox or Opera.

    Nice pixel art.
    Great short game. I think it's good as it is with no more levels.

    Took me a while to get the vine but the ending was totally worth it! Good work, man, awesome mini game! =)

    Amazing! Could've used some sounds, but otherwise funny story and cool gameplay!
