One Slice Too Many

by William Bundy - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A conversation held in the last ten seconds of humanity, interrupted by flashbacks to a simpler time.

The game itself should be self-explanatory.

There is more than one ending and more than one route. There are secrets which I have tried to make easier to discover than randomly pressing keys.

About the story: don't ask.

*Careful: Loud noises.*

Between 8-12 hours were spent writing, coding, and making sound effects for the game, in total.

That was weird... Though some texts are funny xD
The sound from the last part was kinda loud. It was still okay .

Quite puzzling. The way the keys works was innovative.

Ha ha, I'm not sure whether I understand the game that much. I didn't pay attention to the much while I'm playing. But the music while you're reaching the end of 10 sec is pure creepy in some ways, I'm afraid for something might pop out, haha. Nice music, exciting gameplay!

I can't claim to know what I just did, or what happened. Unique approach, at least. I tried to not eat any cake, ended up accidentally eating a piece at the end because you have to hold a key to move to the next second, but that same key press can be registered later. Maybe require a key up between segments?

Herm. Not much to say.

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.
