The Social Avarice of an Adult Mayflyby Several - Jam Entry
A wobbly 2D game with flying and social functions.
Play as an adult mayfly. Live your one allotted day in one slightly-longer-than-usual minute. Attend what seems to be the same party over and over again. Make first impressions.
Contains alcohol & tobacco references, and maybe a couple of so-called 'dictionary words'.
As fast as possible:
1. Check "important guests." Note what they like & don't like. Note their appearance.
2. Click on the options below to dress accordingly.
3. Click the "GO" button to attend the party.
4. Fly around the party with the arrow keys or WASD. Consume alcohol from a straw if necessary.
5. Try to get reasonably close to the guests, so they will notice your appearance. (Or, if they like it when you stand close, stand as close as you can without bumping their wings.)
6. When you have made your good impressions, head to the exit to prepare for the next party.
7. Repeat as often as possible. Time or drink will stop you soon enough.
1. If you're not running the webplayer build, you may have to exit by using the appropriate hotkey for your system. Sorry about that.
2. The crudely-drawn gifts portray the following:
(from left to right)
Gray rectangle-thing: Flask
Green round thing: Moneybag
White-ish angular things: baseball tickets (pointless)
Brown oblong: cigar
Magenta-ish angular thing: perfume bottle
Blue with brown on top thing: Cologne bottle
I tried learning new things, making everything (barring what Unity provides) from scratch, sleeping 6-hour nights, and doing a normal Monday workday + commute within the time limit. Perhaps next time I will be less ambitious.
Let me know if the Windows and Linux builds work. I'll track down someone with those operating systems.
Might try to develop it further. This isn't quite what I'd originally envisioned.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
