Hi It's Julian

by baboum - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This HTML5/javascript game in itself is really short, and you have to click the Download image to play it, after it appears (not a joke).
It is a reference to an ad that a lot of french people (who download stuff on the internet) have encountered :
You should try to run it on Chrome/Chromium, Opera, and FF maybe. I couldn't make it work on my Safari.
I guess you can tell I wasn't really inspired. I spent most of my time on the first day to make the intro, and the next day I did almost nothing. I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

LOL it's a funny experience Baboum with a great idea. Flood is our common enemy which unfortunately has ruined LD site. Nice concept - I like it. THX ++

Neat. I had to do a double-take on that 'download' page.

The "joke" at the start put me off playing it. Sorry. :-/

Games like this makes me ask myself why I'm never manage to make games like this! Fantastic. Replayed it and sent it to all my friends.

The only thing obviously lacking is MORE. Eternal amounts of more content. Branching absurdities. More.

Keep making games like this! Makes the rating experience so much more worth it.

W.T.F. am I playing O_O

Julian and I got to know each other after that. We actually had a lot of common interests, and -- most importantly -- values. Over the years, we moved apart. I'm not really sure why. Julian and I haven't talked in a very long time.

Thank you for this experience.

Well, thank you so much for this great feedback! I didn't expect so much people to actually like it (even if some didn't, and that's cool too I guess).
And thank you for your nice comment Local Mininum. You're definitely right about the length, it is the big problem of this game. I started with a not-so-effective code base, and adding all the features that I wanted was impossible. But now that the time limit is down, I'll definitely consider making a bigger version of this, with a real gameplay this time !
Julian did the same with me, I should have warned you.

Apr 29, 2014 @ 11:18am

OMG, best creative thing I played in a while!! Well done!

Who knew Microsoft Sam could be so haunting? The ending was a great piece of interface-screw, though I can see it scaring off people!

This is supercool++, I cannot but encourage you to work on a longer version of the thing :D

The Intro is so great that the rest of the game doesn't seem that good. This idea really deserve you work more on it! I would love playing more! I want to know Julian better. I want to be his sex slave

Apr 29, 2014 @ 9:06pm

Haha woow that was amazing. A truly unique experience!

Dude, dont be so hard on yourself. That was really, really good. I understand what you mean about it being kind of 'all about the intro' but the mood you struck was really superb.

I think if you added a bit more 'game' this could be really super. I was pleasantly surprised by this :) :) be proud

You know what, that was pretty cool. And it seems to me that this an inspired piece. So please don't apologise.

Haha very funny, I got scared in the beginning, thanks for making this, really nice entry.

May 4, 2014 @ 2:48am

Not sure what this is :v I thought I ran into a wrong website :v

Your game thrilled me to know where it was going and I couldn't know because it was very random. More length with more mechanics would be nice.
Loved the text download as a conclusion (I was excited to open it).

This game inspires me to do something experimental and random :)

Very nice pixel art and animation, loved the approach you took for the theme, well done.

Can you make this a full game? Please.

I beg you.

This game reminds me a LOT of something SUDA51 might do - for a lot of reasons.

It's interesting and I like how experimental it is, but there's just not much here (and yes, I got to the end).

Congrats on finishing, though and thanks for sharing. :)

What an interestingly bizarre game! I'd definitely play a full version!

BTW, to make it work on Saf, instead of using the onended attribute of sounds, attach an "ended" event to the sound elements, like sound.addEventListener("ended", func, false);

syv says ...
May 5, 2014 @ 3:34pm

haha bravo "Julian". j'en veux plus.
You're forgiven if you make this a full game.

What happens? It's amazing game? A confusing game? It's a Game?
I feel I didn't make anything...

Awesome game. Simplistic, strange, and hilarious, all things I thoroughly enjoy in a game. Fantastic Job.

You must sign in to comment.

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 ( 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.
