Fight The Urge

by KeithE. - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Your sitting in a new restaurant when the uncontrollable urge to pee hits. There is just one problem, you have no idea where to go and you can only hold out for 10 more seconds!

Track down waiters to get pointed in the right direction.

WASD to Move
J to Concentrate (Concentration will put a few extra seconds on the clock but you can only hold out for so long)
K to Pee

There are two levels but plenty of places to pee. Can you find them all? :)

There is no audio, that and more than two levels are the things that I would love to add after the submission. There is also a funky bug with the waiter movement that I will try and fix up with more time.

Enjoy! Can't wait to play/rate everyone's game.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to play my game and for the great comments. I'll be sure to rate everyone of your games as well. Can't wait to play them!

@ pbdiode, Thanks for letting me know. It looks to be working now. If anyone else sees this please let me know. I think it is a dropbox issue. I'll look into hosting it from another site tonight.

i liked it, the idea is great and the graphics too, i think its difficulty grade is too high, maybe the level 2 needs to be the level 4 or 5

oh sorry, i didn't see the J button xD now it's a little more easy

Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:29pm

A bit hard, but idea is brilliant :)

What a fun idea. :) Missing only sounds and the ability to pee on people.

Mase says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:44pm

I'd like to have more things to pee on. The plant was nice. Maybe... peeing in people's food. Or on people (with unique dialogues so players can really get into the lore of this game world). Good work.

I've played this game in real life before. Except in real life, when you lose the consequences are much worse than losing 100 points.

Funny theme. Not much to it.

Wow, I love the idea!
Really entertaining. I just wish there'd been more levels..
You had me when i started pissing all over the wall! haha

Getting a 404 error at dropbox. I'll check back later.

KeithE. says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 7:56pm

Sorry to anyone who is getting the 404 errors. It works most the time but occasionally Dropbox seems to go screwy. I think I am going to pay to host somewhere more stable. This is my first HTML5 game I've made public so I'm working out the kinks. :)

Reicher says ...

hmmm, have you removed the game?

Innovation, Humor 5* from me this was hillarious :D

Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:03pm

AWESOME JOB! I love your take on the theme. Maybe it is my inner third grader coming out, but peeing in plants and things are just too funny for words.

Things you could improve on:
-You move just a BIT too slow. (Is it even possible to pee in the men's room on the first level?)

-Some sound would be nice, but oh well. (Who am I to talk. Hahah.)

Keep it up!

Well made for 48 hours.

I only wish I had more things to pee on.

I don't know why, but I always end up in the ladies' bathroom. :-D

Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:19am

Really silly but really nicely executed all the game, makes for a surprisingly fun and addictive game. Some sound effects and music would cap the whole thing off perfectly.

larb says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 3:00am

No worries about the 404. I use dropbox too and had problems yesterday too.

I like the humour. Funny idea. Wish there was more!

Good fun timing game with lots of humor! Not quite sure what 'holding it' precisely does, but that is ok. Was missing a 'total' score a bit, would have liked to see if I can stay positive over a longer run. :) A few graphical glitches, like pee-puddles on top of me instead of under. ;)

Aug 29, 2013 @ 1:57am

Good stuff! Its a tough world out there, we pee guys got to stick together!

Not much more to say than that! Very nice take on the theme, obviously good on humour. Would have liked to have seen it with the extra levels and sounds.

Haha, you should win if you pee in the bathroom, even if outside the toilet :P I love the J concentrate key :)

Any game that has a "pee" button gets a thumbs-up from me. :D

Antidote says ...
Sep 7, 2013 @ 9:27pm

Lol fun, wish I could pee anywhere, not just in front of the toilet xD I tried to pee on random customers lol

Crowbeak says ...
Sep 9, 2013 @ 6:06am

This is not the only game I have seen this LD that used the needing to go to the bathroom idea, but I like this one better. The concentrating to earn more seconds mechanic is nice.

Jason says ...
Sep 9, 2013 @ 2:07pm

Lol, this definitely made me laugh! Good job overal.

darkshadow says ...
Sep 9, 2013 @ 2:32pm

Brilliant idea! managed to make it to the bathroom on both levels, well 'a' bathroom on the second one, good enough lol

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.
