Cleaner Bot

by Martin Vilcans - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Control a cleaner robot remotely over the surveillance cameras in your minimalistic apartment. Wiping up puke never was this fun!

Note: Requires WebGL and only works in Chrome right now. (Firefox has a problem with an HTTP request of all things...)

The feeling of driving the car is great. Nice turning speed, acceleration and momentum. Nice detection of where the camera needs to be as well. Great game.

Nice game!
Feels like cleaning up after my kid when he was very young and puked all the time :)
I liked the game mechanics as well and that you used webgl :)

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

@Per: I hope you enjoyed cleaning up after your kid as you're comparing my game to it. :-)

Fun game and I just love the controls!

The camera works fine, but there are a few spots that need need additional camera positions. There were times that was a point where I couldn't see the robot anymore.

Used FF as well and did not have problems. :D

Where's the dog? And where's the toilet because I feel sick. Seriously though, the control of the minibot is well implemented and I like the moving from camera to camera.

The viewpoint makes this quite interesting :)

HAHAHA that was fun! The puke cleaning was successful!

@avidgamerNino: No it's not my apartment, but I based it on an the upper floor of an actual apartment under production: http://hemnet.sfd.se/BildLista/Default.aspx?objgid=OBJ29974_1253508348

Unfortunately 30MSEK is a bit too much for me, and I'm not that fond of the location.

The controls felt good although the fps was really low on my setup (firefox 20 / Linux / Intel HD graphics). Also the camera changed at a strange moment and then the robot was hidden by a wall. I would have liked arrow control instead of wasd so that I don't have to change my keymap to play.

You could make a game like Cargobot, where you set a stack of orders (go to left, then right, etc) and the robot executes it ,as result it might clean all the dirty from the room. wouldnt be nice? :)
this game is cool also but i think this idea should be more challenging

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.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
