The Only String

by Tuba - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You have only one string in your guitar! Can you play it!????

Made with Flashpunk on FlashDevelop. The sounds were recorded from my guitar and edited on Audacity.

I'm no musician or composer or anything like that so... sorry about the music. Still had fun doing it, always wanted to make a music game, hope you enjoy it! :)

Took awhile to figure out to hold mouse AND strum, but afterwards pretty awesome.

It was awesome. I was especially impressed how the guys hands on the stage mimic'ed the players hands.

Rock on! Wooo!

That was a lot of fun. Was thinking somewhere in the middle that's how it should have ended, haha. Anyway, really love the creative idea (as opposed to just not making graphics).

Funny way to incorporate the theme haha and pretty nice animations when clicking to hold down the finger! Fun game.

Funny game :D Wasn't sure how long the song was going to go on for, but apart from that it seemed really neat :)

Funny game, and awesome idea! I loved it :D.
You may need to add a progress indicator of some kind, though.

Really fun game to play, playing it on the touchpad seemed like sliding the finger in the guitar for real!

Good idea and great implementation!
Nice work on the difficulty progression too. Not sure if it's scripted or random, but it's good either way.
Felt a little glitchy when the note is on the bottom strum area, but it's playable.
Missed some feedback on the number of errors allowed or whatever mechanic you programmed.
Nice story to justify the theme choice! ;)

Awesome game. Great humour right there :D

this was freaking hilarious! i love the graphical style, and the whole concept... haha it's too bad it doesn't actually sound cool when you play... and like... you know... go with the beat or something... but that actually makes it more hilarious... hahahaha yeah! :)

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.
