The Minimalism Quest

by Pol - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The Minimalism Quest tells the story of a guy who embraces the phylosophy of minimalism (getting rid of what is not necessary) a little bit to litteraly.
Short warioware-inspired game, mouse only.

Very good graphics. A bit morbid at the end. No one can say that they're being surprised by a penis, though: it's right there on the first screenshot.

Very well polished and quite fun to try to get the best rank! Feels very responsive and everything comes together well. Not much replay value but now I feel like I'm asking a lot of something that was made in 48 hours. Nicely done all around.

I Like the graphics

Loved the car. Great stuff - the limb action was a little buggy - took a while to hack them off. Bonus point for style, execution and interpretation of the brief. :D

Fun concept.
I clicked 30-40 times on the computer but I did not understand how to do it well as I was stuck there during 30 seconds at least and did not crushed it 0_o

Nice art style. Most were fun. The final one - seemed very difficult to cut. I must be missing something.

Great little game and although concise, very replayable. Dark (ending!!?) but a lot of fun, love the graphics and the twist on the mini game genre - so many riffs on warioware out there (our previous jam entry included!) but this feels fresh and unique

A bizarre creation. Yet, one of the best games I've played here!

Hmm how should I rate this? Not much of a game maybe. But I did have fun, and the graphics were brilliant, the sound was just right, and great on the theme.

Ok then 5 stars it is!

Lol nice idea for doing that kind of minigame tasks fast. And your interpretation of the theme is original. Good graphics and mood. I laughed a lot when shaving the dog and burning the books. Goo job!

The ending was way darker than the rest of the game and somehow ruined my experience, which was really pleasant and humourous so far. I'm not sure what you wanted to achieve here o_O
Also, shifting between mouse with & without click felt a bit awkward to me, as I had to think about which control to use instead of doing it fast, which doesn't seem to fit so well with the "wario ware" experience.

But the game looks nice and made me laugh (before the ending), and is fun to play overall :)

The coherent and provocative message interested me while guessed the goal of each screen. I love WarioWare, so I was keen to act. It looks beautiful! As you wrote in the post-mortem, I wouldn't have understood the mutilation scene. As a follow up the scenes of exploding the car and burning the books, it seems to approach nihilism.

I loved the graphics and the overall style, but the last level seemed out of place and a bit too dark for the rest of the game. It was a fun concept though. Well done!

Nice art, good interaction variety. I like how after a few more complicated stages you just blow the car up. Boom. Simple. =) Kudos on the sound, too.

With a touchpad I couldn't get beyond "meh". A mouse let me get up to "fairly simple".

Pretty simple and well polished.

Remind me some wario ware style game .. It's very fun.. but still "meh"

Great game :D
If you want to try warioware on drugs, try my game ;)

Well presented, only I didn't find it much fun to play. It is not clear what to do in the computer scene. The ending scene is too gross for me. I'd like to have seen more scenes.

That was the only one i played this LD that deserves a 5 for humor. :)

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.
