Deja Vu

by d__adee - 48 Hour Compo Entry

"I have a feeling this has happened, and there's something I must do, but I don't know what."
Go back in time and redo what is to happen!

- arrow keys
- space

- libGDX

Gameplay works like a point and click.
Feedbacks are appreciated!

- I know, it's a frustrating game. :)
- Also my source code is so messy! :P
from Sestren ;)
"If anyone is interested in a small hint (I hope nobody minds), you have to start out by interacting with two closely-related objects in a specific order"

If you can't still make it... there's a hint on the microwave

Crashes on mac os 10.8.2 when i try to launch the jar.
Screenshots look cool though.

Isn't there a way to make a jar executable in a browser? maybe people will have an easier time playing it, if it was.

Aw... sorry, I'll see what I can do.

The game was cool, but I could not figure it out for the life of me. I know it has something to do with the box in the closet, but I can't find the key. I've gone and interacted with everything in the level and still could not
figure it out. Could you give me a hint?

Cool designed game, but is it possible to win this game?

Looks really nice but I fail to make any progress other than opening the box which does not seem to prevent the phone call. D:

I can't believe the way I saved my family :p

It's a nice game, congratulations!

Haha nice game. It took me like 20 tries to get it but I finally did. It kind of makes you think about this kind of stuff in real life like "what if". Kind of short but sweet. Good job.

It is hard, I couldn't save them :( Really nice work overall though!

Cool game! Haven't completed it so far. I really like the graphics though.

This was really cool. Well-made graphics, satisfying sounds. I wouldn't say it was frustrating, but it was very difficult to find the right sequence of actions. In the end I gave up and read the source!

But what was the significance of the gift in the locked box? Or is that just story?

I really liked the concept, but unfortunately, I had to look at the source to find out how to win. I think one thing that would tighten the controls up a lot and give the player more time to explore would be if you could walk away from an object after interacting with it without having to press space.

If anyone is interested in a small hint (I hope nobody minds), you have to start out by interacting with two closely-related objects in a specific order, and it has nothing to do with the lockbox. I hope this helps.

Yesss! Figured it out :D Excellent job, I initially didn't think it was that great, but then I found myself on my 30th playthrough, trying to figure out your puzzle! Well done, and awesome solution, haha!

Very nice game, I liked it!

Hmm, I tried like fifty times but couldn't figure it out. I like the ten second part though. It really adds to the game. I think the game might need some in-game hints to point in the right direction.

Very well made. Reminds a lot of my entry. I had to look at your source to find the answer, the box kept me distracted and I had to find out what it was for.

Very good. Excellent take on the theme and great execution overall. The game is indeed a bit frustrating, but it's OK with this design. Well done !

Loved the look and feel of the game! Great graphics and great concept but gotta say... I wish there would have been more then just the one puzzle to it... Still, great job!

Sep 2, 2013 @ 2:31pm

I came back to it and finally figured it out. I have to say, that was very clever, although the locked box in the dresser really threw me off.

Sep 3, 2013 @ 3:20am

Haha, finally found it!
Those hints weren't enough for me at all!
If I were to give another hint... *reason for action*
Great game!

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.
