Ticket Inspector 3001

by kritzikratzi - Jam Entry

You play a ticket inspector for the tram company of linz;
a villain so boring that there's a high risk of spontaneously falling asleep during the game.

Game controls: left/up/right/down to navigate. space to talk to people. numbers 1,2... to chose during conversations.
OS: Any, as long as you have java 1.6+ installed
How to run: Unpack the zip file, double click ticket_inspector_3001.jar

Note: the game is in a really quite broken state. you can do the basic task of fining people,
but some dialoges will end abruptly or not make much sense.

Is there an end to this?
I was just stuck after exiting the train.
Nice avatars.

the movement feels really nice and the avatars are great. i would sometimes get stuck with a couple of people in my radius, though--maybe switch the selection to the one you're moving towards? does it have an ending? i was racking up fines, but don't know if there's a goal

This was brilliantly unique. I loved the comedy as much as how just, -out- there it was.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
