The True And Only Way to Monoby Tyu - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You play as a careless hipster dude who just discovered a new way of life: the MONO. By following the MONO he limits himself to use only one object per day. But today, his mom is coming to see him, and his apartment is a huge mess. Choose between the sponge, the hammer and the cardboard to clean your flat, you only have one minute! With some effort, you really can wash your dishes with a hammer, tidy your socks with a sponge, and repair a water leak with some carboard. That's the true and only way to Mono.
UPDATE: Fixed the GUI (last minute code that wasn't good) and the collisions.
I used Game Maker 8 and Photoshop. For the sound, I used some sounds on freesound and universal-soundbank, and I made some music on ujam.com . I don't know if it really follow the jam rules, but apparently it's fine.
I'm glad I finished my game and that it works this time, I also drew a lot more and I feel more satisfied (plus I level'd up as hell in GML since last time). The gameplay isn't that interesting, though, I constantly changed little things to make it more fun but choosing one object instead of another doesn't really change anything. Maybe I'll put different scores on different objects and making them spawn more or less depending on that in a post compo version.

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.
