The Count of Ten

by Andrewves - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This game places you in the role of a child who has 10 seconds to clean up the toys in his room.

For each toy he collects he gains extra time.

The Game can be seen through the eyes of a child who hates cleaning and when faced with the task, feels as tho there is a seemingly infinite amount to do. The environment changes to reflect these feelings.

W,A,S,D to move
(Holding S while in the air makes the player fall faster)

To collect toys hold left click or left shift and run into them.

lol can't think of why I didn't make something like this, love it!

Loved the game!, it is a really original interpretation of the
theme. Although, I have to ask, why is the background of a child's room a graveyard?

Great idea and lovely pixel art! A little hard to control though, wish the movement was less floaty.

Clever use of the theme. I smiled when I saw the premise. It was a little awkward to get used to the movement.

That's quite tough! Great work on the art, especially the mom I thought was brilliant.

Great graphics! I found the controls a bit buggy, but still good fun to play!

Nice game! The movement is indeed quite "floaty", especially since you can jump as much as you like. It is also a bit awkward that you need to press left click / shift to collect the toys, since you can simply have them pressed all of the time.

Nice work! It was fun to play once I understood how the controls works (the help text in the beginning disappears before I could understand it, and it wasn't clear at first that I had to _hold_ the button to pick things up (so why not just hold it all the time?)

The physics in this kid's room are pretty weird. I was wondering if there's some interesting story in the game world about why that is.

Quite fun to survive with all those toys falling.
I like the way the character is floating around all this toys, it transcribe quite well the child vision. An the mother on the door, excellent.
Great mood, fun game.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:25am

Cool game, the graphics are really nice and the story is original :)

Funny short little game. My only complaint was that the movement was far too slow.

Looks really neat

The graphics look amazing in this game and the entire thing is very cute overall. The gimmick behind the game is really fun to play. There are some weird control issues like the "floaty" movement but it doesn't really detract from the game. Nice job!

quirky graphics and music. exceptionally well for the 48 hour comp

Aug 29, 2013 @ 6:12pm

Cute game, not quite easy to pick up those toys, though...

Not bad, but there's some bug that makes second pass as though they were half-seconds (and I'm not sure how to recreate it), and the kid can jump forever.

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.
