Simple Pleasures

by Jarrett - Jam Entry


A simple, fun table flipping game made by Jarrett Burns and George Miller with music from Incompetech by Kevin MacLeod.

Move with WASD
Look around with the mouse
Flip tables with space bar or left click
(only after taking a moment to admire their sound structural design, of course)

Can you find the potato?

Have fun :D

You can download the game for Windows or play it in your browser. The web link *should* work..

Could you perhaps post some controls? Spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out how to flip tables, as advertised.

Snap, it's always the obvious things you forget to include :\ Thanks for reminding me Aevek. Don't see a way to edit my entry now but I'll post them here:

Ok. Really, I don't why, it's hard to admit but, I really enjoyed to flip those damn tables. Putting stuff in a mess, that's always cool \o/

But I think, there's really something to do with that. Don't know, add blood to tables, the more you kill them, the more they become alive and beg for mercy. You should seriously think about adding something narrative in it. I really feel like there's potential.

I really liked it anyway !

Hahaha, I'm glad I came back and tried this. I flew a couch up to the giant table on the second floor. The sounds were funny

It's quite satisfying to slip tables. I only wish I could flip those pesky salesmen. Lemonannie

Loved the voice acting. Hilarious game, and who knew flipping tables would feel so good?

Wonderful title. It took me back to my serial table flippage days.

Where else have I heard that intro music?! It's driving me crazy!!

Appreciate the feedback everyone. Glad you all enjoyed it :)

Intro music is Grove Grove from Incompetech. Not sure where you might have heard it, but I'd say it and others been used several places.

I did not see one table break in all my table flipping. Amazing structural integrity. It would be nice if the scoring was more in depth and had more feedback, i.e. multipliers and such(maybe there is? it felt random). Right now the game seems to be an offbeat sandbox. I think the game is very amusing, but I think with a solid scoring/feedback system it could go even further.

This game was a ton of fun! Flipping tables to gain airtime was a pretty cool mechanic, although it was difficult to control, but that was part of the fun! Nice work :D

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.
