Telekinetic Minimalist Cult 5: Packrat Nightmare

by RobotLovesKitty - Jam Entry

In a struggle to find your identity, you have joined the Hippest Cult of Minimalists. It has granted you the ability to move objects with your mind... but there is trouble!

The cult is coming to inspect your home
and collect your membership fee. You must get rid of as much stuff in your house as possible before they arrive!

Sell things to pedestrians, and watch out for cops while you dump your items in the woods or in the street!

Good Luck!

Z = Pickup
Space = Throw
X = Sell
Arrows = Move

:D this is our first Ludum Dare Jam! We had a blast, hope you enjoy our crazy game!

That was great!! I loved the recorded singing and sounds, and the overall humor of it! Very innovative and on-topic!

I really liked how it looked, but it was difficult to figure out what to do. I played for quite a while sucking things up and shooting(?) them out.

The art was really nice and I can tell you spent time on the sound effects (each individual person had there own things that they would be mumbling), but perhaps it would be helpful to explain the gameplay a little so that the player isn't so lost.

This game has a ton of potential. I would have rated it higher, but I think it could use more polish. There's no way to avoid the cops, the objects get in the way of movement, and I haven't quite figured out the parameters of selling objects. Hilarious though, especially the voices.

This is hilarious.

I've been laughing literally for minutes.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:52pm

Great one :D Your music and sound effects are just awesome (all the people talking and the viking girl, hilarious). I totally got hit by a car on my first try... And: The game is quite challanging, the police is always getting me!

This was great. I liked your take on the theme. Very silly, but very fun. The controls were a bit choppy. It would have been nice if there were a way to skip the opening (because I had to restart a few times). Nice job overall!

Love the style, the audio and character animation especially. Gameplay a bit lacking.

Awesome - excellent look and feel, and the audio is perfect. Especially that kid with the airplane.

Really cool some funny stuff in there and although a bit glitchy it was still fun to play. Really nice game and concept good job!

Funny game! A little too difficult to sell and control though.

Really snazzy little game! I also liked the ending soundtrack. It's a pretty neat idea and I can see the minimalism. Good Job!

Very nice game, funny, impressive for 48 hours and best/funny audio from all I tried so far.
Though little bit lacking on "gameplay" side.

Hillarious and funny, although controls are just a bit too strange (character doesn't responds very well, even without any items) and resulting gameplay is mostly chaotic.

I like the slight humor over everything that make it fun. The realisation is great, but i have some trouble understanding how to sell and why policemen chase me.

Funny! It was fun throwing all of my stuff in the street and watching cars run into it, but I never had any success selling objects? So only got to see losing endings!

Zemmi says ...

Hilarious :D It would be cool it you could throw stuff at police to try and fend them off(maybe you could, I don't think I ever succeeded though) or be able to toss things out of windows on the second floor. Could be bombing your possessions off the top floor at a stream of cops piling up at the door. Loved it, so glad I could play in the street.

Love the opening, especially the cat. This game is hilarious in a very strange way... not many games have getting a bed down the stairs as a problem. Breakin the Larrw

BREKKIN THE LAAAW. I loved this game, even though I found it impossible to play :P It was always unclear what you could sell and what you couldn't. on my last attempt I when in and out with about 5 different loads of stuff and only managed to sell like 1 thing. I got arrested every time too :( Really fun nonetheless :)

Nice sound effects.

May 5, 2013 @ 5:36pm

Nice job... i like ... all the tools of a good game is there... humor, fun, music, graphic ... all is there :)

Hilarious! From the opening screen to the death! I'll get 5 stars on fun and graphics for sure.

I didn't understand the logic for selling very well though..

I really liked the visuals, so i'm hoping to see more of this game in the future!

Very odd game. Seems pretty well made. Nice style too.

I couldnt seem to sell stuff very often and after I died at one stage, I respawned carrying duplicate items.

Nice work.

Both silly and fun. And hard! The little sounds are great.

That was a lot of fun to play! Great audio, very funny. I wasn't very successful unfortunately, first time I was killed, second time ended up in jail.

This game rocks, it has everything including great style. I just regret those cops I really can't avoid. Once you get one stuff out they keep coming until you die. Maybe removing the object you have been punished for would make the game more playable. The mix 2D and 3D sprites is really perfectly executed. The game look remind me a crossing between Katamari and Parappa the raper. I think I never gave so much sta
