Target: Restaurant !

by illugion - Jam Entry

This was my first ludum dare ( and my first game ! ) and unfortunately I didnt complete it in time, i hope you guys like what i've done :D
Your objective is to make other people get fired so you can take their job and then become the owner of the restaurant! ( but thats not yet possible )
I entered the jam alone ( I shouldnt have done that ) and i only had 2 days to do the game so that's why i wasnt able to complete it :P

Up Arrow - Enter Doors/Talk
Down Arrow - Pick up things
X - Use things
Z - Interact with objects
Esc - Close
( oh and there is an easter egg if you press a super secret button )

Loved the art style! Fun game, fit the theme nicely. All in all well done!

Really nice pixel art. I thought it was a fun idea, well executed, there just needs to be a little more gameplay.

The art style was fantastic! Even though it's so short I loved the endings.

Its nice, but I'm not sure if its possible to get the waiter fired. The graphics however were nicely done, and its a shame you didn't have more time to finish...

Thanks a lot guys! I'm really glad you liked the game and the art :D I'm planning to finish the game later and then post a link to it somewhere but i think it will take some time XD
To make the waiter get fired you gotta make him fall but you can't get caught by him ( there is a line of sight that i didnt indicate, sorry XP )

My team did 8bit graphics also, and I can say they look great in games like yours!

Dec 18, 2012 @ 5:25am

Very good art and concept, wish you would have had more time.

Very good game for what it was. From realizing that I could pick up a banana to realizing that my target was the waiter to getting fired by being caught to realizing that I had to do it while he wasn't looking, I think things flowed very nicely. Sad it wasn't finished, it has so much potential. Keep up the good work!

Good start. Looks like it could be fun with more time to develop it.

Dec 18, 2012 @ 7:54pm

Great style. But I didn't find the easter egg!

It's a very fun little puzzle game concept, but unfortunately it's very short (at present). The visual style is great

Neat concept. Something like this could be expanded indefinitely, so I'd suggest if you have the time, go for it! I enjoyed it, and I'm sure with more content, it could become an interesting take on the puzzle genre. Congrats on your first game! :D

Cute game, a litle hard to understand thought!

Dec 18, 2012 @ 9:51pm

awwwww! top marks for theme, graphics, humor and mood, despite your time handicap! Wow this can be really fun, are you taking it further?

Sounds like a fun game, but I cannot run windows. :( Awesome that you got something entered though. Good luck!

illugion says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 4:13am

I made the game on construct classic so i think it only runs on windows =/ i wish i had a Construct 2 license so i could make a web version maybe

Failed to load plugin.

Thats weird.. i looked up for this error and it seems that some configurations on the computer can conflict with construct classic, i don't know how to fix that, sorry.. i'll try using another software next time =/

Dec 19, 2012 @ 11:20pm

Beautiful pixel art. Couldn't figure out what to do though

Feels like the start of a fun little game here! Just wish it had a little more gameplay fleshed out, but it's promising. And looks great!

I felt that the movement was a bit sluggish, but I still had fun.

Interesting concept, good art, shame it wasn't finished. I was kinda confused when I got the waiter fired and the game abruptly ended. :p

I really want to the game completed!

Excellent work for a first-time solo entry.

I liked how this game reminds me of the Ace Attorney series (because the boss is points and yells... just like the "Objection", etc).

illugion says ...
Dec 23, 2012 @ 4:38am

I really like the Ace Attorney series :D i didnt even think about it when i was doing the game but yeah it reminds me of that too haha XD

I will! I'm just resting a bit now but i'll work on it soon!

Jan 2, 2013 @ 9:57am

Superb artwork, in only one day you say? Excellent work! I missed sound? Nicely constructed puzzling, funny and compelling. Thank you!

I like game idea, it's original and fun. Also great graphics. This game has big potential, you should do a post compo version with more jobs to ruin.

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.
