!!SEIZURE WARNING!! This game does involve some mild sprite flashing. It's not too bad but if you have any history of this I'd prefer you pass on playing.

--TO RUN--
Windows: Drag Flashpants.love onto Love.exe
Mac(Untested): Go to love2d.org to install love.app. Double click/drag Flashpants.love onto love.app
Linux(Untested): Go to love2d.org to get the version for your distro.

Arrow keys to move.

Chase down the potato pushing Dealers! Getting caught by a Dancer will pull you into they're path. If you're pushed off the dance floor move until you find your way back.

Booze slows your world down while Energy Drinks speed it up. But using the liquids causes more Dealers to show up. If there's more than 8 dealers the cops will come in and drop your flashpants searching for drugs!

Sorry Shotiris. The instructions in the readme were written before the ones here. You can download the source from here and use that or just drag Flashpants.love. Love files are just the zipped source but I included the Love binaries in the package so people wouldn't have to install Love2D to run the game.

It was pretty hard to understand what to do. And the blinking was kind of annoying, but pretty cool concept and charming characters.

Funny but a bit short. Works well on Linux, btw.

Funny! Good atmosphere. You should include a bat file to help people run your game easier.

I'll add an exe in a few minutes.

The gameplay feel short of what I wanted to do. I couldn't get the timers working correctly and was too burnt out to figure it out in the ~2 hours I had left. Essentially I wanted the dealers/objective to be timer based like everything else so there was positives and negatives to switching speeds. Right now it's kind of backwards because switching speeds also spawns them which was my "fix it fix it fix it!" solution.

Quite an interesting theme for a game like this, I have to say, and the execution isn't bad either.
Shame about the timers though, but do keep at it.

I rated high on mood cause there is no "style" category and the game has a good feel. I just found the mechanics to be a little rough which is understandable for 48h. Very refreshing.

Ok, let me understand this...so, you are a guy in a bar looking for energy drinks and some tea, which makes the time goes slowler or faster while people push you allover the dancefloor until you get your pants down...why? XD
this is fun, just like a crazy night =D

I didnt know what the blinking was doing at first and then all of the sudden I realized... its party time!

May 14, 2013 @ 8:26pm

hehe, this is pretty fun. are you trying to get drugs from the dealers? i don't really understand. can we get more psychedelic flashing the more drug dealers we hit? :D

the music could... have a little more going on with it... definitely points for innovation, humor, and mood!

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.
