I really enjoyed the mood of this a lot, it was funny and well done, the music goes great with it too. I'm only confused about the part where you hide your info on the paper. Other than that it's really great and awesome to see this setting in a game.

Dotanukii, thanks for comment! To hide your info you need move your finger on part of paper with text while pressed Z key. You need to swipe your finger up and down the line so it has changed.
Sorry for not very good english.

Sorry, dangerous download warning on my browser on the .exe

Looks interesting though.

Hmm, I like the idea, but I somehow got stuck in a forging -> escape -> hospital-loop which send me to very, very negative money very soon. I'm not sure why my guy kept escaping from the police just after getting out of hospital, but overall, I couldn't get any money :/

Overall though, I like the idea you were going for.

That was a fast paced game :-)

I really liked the music and the general idea of the subgames. But it gets repetitive really quickly.

By the way, I think the "document" minigame might be bugged: It seems that it did not reset every time I switched to it.

Thanks for the game!

Hint: write some blog posts during ludum dare! :-)

Nice little game. I love it, and the hand drawn graphics! I featured this game in my compilation video of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

Couldn't seem to rub out the city. Kept dying in the car driving part. I went to the hospital over and over and over, heheh

This is so wrong but I had a good laugh xD
The running away with car part seems to happen a bit too fast. I had a difficulty trying to dodge. Other than that, it's pretty fun.

Damn, do I just suck or is the car driving part just hard? Also, I'm not sure why I kept coming across cops but what the hell, it was a fun game!

Funny. Not very polished, i think there is a bug and the face phase. But i like the graphics and the music.

Laughed hard, those are very comic faces.
Tip.: if you hide your name/city/age and then restart, the letters remains messed up. It's a bug.

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 ( 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.
