Real Life Simulator

HOW TO PLAY: Every ten seconds you remember a chore. If you stockpile too many chores, you get depressed and kill yourself.

WASD to move, E to interact, ARROW KEYS to look around.

Special thanks to everyone who let me steal their music without asking,

This is the first game I've played that had an existentialism meter. You certainly nailed the dark humor, and the graphics have a certain charm.

Worked on Chrome. Funny game, after retrying the music cut off a couple of minutes into my second round and stayed off which was sad.

I'm not okay with you just grabbing music from others without permission since it's against the rules and the spirit of the whole thing, though maybe things are more lax in the jam vs. the compo? Nice graphics though.

Didn't work on Safari, but worked on Chrome!

Very nice and funny game hahaha, finally got to finish it after some tries, the to do list can get quite hard some times! just missing some music, but overall good job!

@Steve Cochrane Yeah I feel pretty scummy about just taking people's music, but the Jam is indeed much more lax about that kind of stuff, and I tried to hide the music a little so it's more of an easter egg than a crutch of the game. I would have totally made my own music if I had the full 72 hours to work.

Good art and design!

Nice game! Very nice art style and funny chores. I couldn't play the newgrounds version because I don't have an account, so the mirror was nice :) well done!

Try to give credit to the creators of music somewhere. Soundtrack is great! :D This game is really funny! I wonder, where did the dildo disappear to...? And why does he want to make a toast when he says "Fuck."? :D

One of the funniest games I played yet! Ending "reward" was best.

Web link doesn't seem to work. Stealing music from others really goes against the spirit (and rules) of Ludum Dare as well.

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.
