by cmayhem - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Very fun game ! :)

Also, FYI, the linux version does not work. It freezes on startup.

Thanks for letting me know there is some problem with the Linux version, I'll try to fix it asap.

Played on Webplayer. I smirked.
I have a hard time figuring out how parts move - but it makes the game all the more fun.

Good job!

Fun Game! The mouse sensitivity was a little low for my tastes, but that's just my preference

Nice work! I enjoyed the splatter! ^_^

If every thing in that guy's house is covered in knifes I'm not surprised he died. :)

Blood... it's everywhere!

NiallM says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 4:21pm

This made me laugh :D Love how fragile and unwieldy the body is.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 6:49pm

lol! Hilarious and disgusting! I wish I knew what constituted hiding, since I ended up with a "Quilty" verdict. lol

Apr 29, 2013 @ 6:53pm

Oh der, now I get it. lol, the chalk outline thing was confusing for me, since it wasn't used in a way that corresponds to how it's used in real life. The chalk outlines are to indicate where the body was lying when found. Maybe if you had to stuff the body into a garbage can or trunk or vat of acid or something lol

YEAH not guilty ! ...well...the second time i played! First one was a total disaster ! Excellent game!

Beerman says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:27am

Hah! I pulled his head off and blood went everywhere!
Great fun, although it seemed to end at random even though the timer hadn't finished - is that meant to happen?

Apr 30, 2013 @ 7:27am

I don't know if this is an intentional connection, but when QUILTY showed up at the end of my bloody catastrophe, I immediately thought of Peter Seller's Clare Quilty from the film Lolita, and the sight of a blood spattered room with a corpse and that thought were so great to have together. Thanks. Keeping the blood level minimal is a neat objective to pair with the theme too.

First try: Okay, that's kinda cool

Made me laugh. Lovely graphics, sound works well with it. Would love more content with more 'dangerous' rooms.

OOH I'm gonna need some paper towels to clean up that bloody mess... luckily I'm so QUILTY! THE QUICKER PICKER UPPER

This game is hilarious and well made. Great idea, great execution! GREAT GREAT GREAT

Awesome and messy - i loved to play with your stick men :D

This is hilarious, "Verdict: Quilty" ending cracked me up!

Oh my god! (That was so much fun. I had a whole class of teenage kids helping me.) The body must be a zombie. The have notoriously weak joints.

The first time I pulled the body really quickly was quite surprising. :P Well done. :)

graytest says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 9:26pm

Great idea. The mouse sensitivity could have been better. Had to pull cursor off the screen to move the body at all. Kept ripping his head off because I got annoyed and pulled too hard.. :)

dray says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 12:04am

Yeah! i made it ! not guilty after 10 tries !

Jorjon says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 12:48am

Nicely done! Maybe you should add more levels?

cmayhem says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 7:34am

Thank you all for the comments! I'm working on turning this into a real game with options for mouse sensitivity. :)

tonic says ...
May 5, 2013 @ 11:33am

Haha, what an idea. :) Came to try the game after somebody on Twitter mentioned that he got a "stair dismount feeling" from your game (I made stair dismount). The blood wounds get triggered perhaps a bit too easily. Nice work!

Jacic says ...

'Bloody' brilliant! ;) Very fragile body though. Still, fun!

Nice! After about five tries, I finally committed the Perfect Crime! Fun. Nicely done.

ok that was interesting -- nice effort!

Gruesome murder is the best way to start a new rating day. Lovely!

Dragging the ragdoll thrilled me. If you continue to develop this, I kept tearing off the doll's arm and I don't see what I was doing wrong; it just happened each time.

Taro Omiya says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 5:29am

What a bloody funny game! Ragdoll effect was really nice, but it was kind of easy to figure out how to complete this game.

The blood did surprise me, though. Might have helped if I knew which body part I was dragging.

And then John became a zombie.

euwaku says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 6:15am

The fun begins when you realize that you should not drag body parts too strong...

moomoo112 says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 8:20am

well, that was.. different, needs more levels, it's kinda fun

TurboDindon says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 8:35am

Heheh, your game made my day. The idea is just amazing. It was hard but I managed to get not guilty!

Awesome :P I made the perfect crime!

May 10, 2013 @ 4:21pm

I hope your game isn't autobiographical :D
Should I be worried about having fun while playing football with a head?

kill0u says ...
May 11, 2013 @ 12:03am

Nice one! You'd make a terrible killer though :D

Tsuki_Usagi says ...
May 13, 2013 @ 3:19am

omg, that was cool

wasn't expecting that he would explode when I first tried jaja xD

dem0 says ...
May 13, 2013 @ 8:46pm

I pulled his leg and his head blew off? :P That was pretty nice, managed to win. The gameplay was pretty lame but scenery and music was nice.

Sebastian says ...

That moment when his head flew off XD
Very easy though, feels like their should be some more levels!

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 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.
