The Room

by dragonee - 48 Hour Compo Entry

What would you do closed in a room with the only other things being your bed, a mirror and a computer display that does not work? The Room will let you explore this strange world in a little thought experiment.

A pretty cool visual novel, I didn't have the time to see all the endings but got a pretty nice feel from the game. Good job!

I don't get it started. There comes a error message, that I don't have got the rights to open the file. Huh.

Well done, loved the music! I really liked the lighting up of the computer screen, quite cool indeed. Poor assistant though, there's no way for him not to be patronized :).

@SuperlevelSebastian - I don't know what OS are you on, but maybe you should try to chmod -R 777 the directory on Linux/MacOS?

@dstozek, Jellycakes, @Jod - thanks!

Definitely more of a story than a game, but good nontheless!

Did you honestly just steal my idea for an all hand-drawn-by-nowhere-near-professional-artist visual novel? Well, only I'm using charcoal, so there's that.

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.
