Do you want a Mint?

by TripleHexel - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Wow. Personally, I think the art is pretty terrible. I'm good at making detailed art, so minimalism was impossible. I also think that Ren'Py was not the best engine for this theme.

PLEASE NOTE: The file is the same for all OS' because of how Ren'Py packages games. There is the respective file (exe, sh, etc.) in the package for each OS.

Eesh, how big is the download? 60mb and still going! If you cna get a smaller download working too (maybe a 'minimal' version with fewer music files etc.) maybe that would help? Looking forward to playing it though.

Okay having started playing it I see it's very dependent on audio. Consider doing a really low-bitrate release though - otherwise not many people will download it I think :(

Playing now! :)

Hoooo boy. Ok. Um. :P I think I'll avoid leaving a rating this time, but I did enjoy the surrealism. I ahven't played bioshock infinite so I think I might be missing a joke or two. Either way, well done for entering! :P

Lmao, what the heck did I just play. Clearly there isn't really anything to do, but it made me chuckle. Congrats!

@mtrc Will try to lower the bit rates! Audacity was apparently defaulting to the highest bit rate. :|

@Michael Hall That is exactly what I said when I tested it. As my first Ludum Dare game I have learned that Ren'Py is not good for minimalism. (^_^;)

That was a bit... odd

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.
