by pixelpig - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Very short, I know, but this is my first game jam and I underestimated how short 48 hours is n_n

A bit far from the theme (it's in the game, though), a bit short, but cool !

Loved the graphics, I wish the game was longer and the enemies a little more difficult. The only hits I took were from the father, the dishwasher only shot a projectile once and the last enemy didn't attack me a single time.

This was a really solid game, even though it was a bit short. The idea was awesome and the theme was used nicely. Controls were a bit sticky and enemies were lacking difficulty, but overall this is good!

Pretty interesting take on the theme. It was a little hard to tell when to dodge though.

Wow, this is a crazy silly game! Controls were a bit rough, as was collision. It made it kind of hard to tell when was hitting/being hit. Still, a very nice proof of concept! And very nice music, too!

Nice audio and pixel art :) Congratz for your first game jam :D

I love the "no son of mine" line. Short game, but I'd like to go on future adventures with "Fridge" is Fridge his first name or last name or is it a "Cher" type 1 name deal? I'd play a whole game centered around him, particularly if he had a pretty standard issue first name, like William Fridge

@joe40001, I'm thinking of making an RPG type game centred around him, but with it being insanely hard, like the first Zelda, with only 1 life. Would you play it? William Fridge sounds good xD

I'm totally there, you could make the game like a really fun/challenging Zelda style game where all the characters are appliances but there is never justification given for this. The game never calls specific attention to it, it's just a great rpg zelda game where you happen to be a refrigerator.

lol, it would be awesome.

Aha what a concept!
Not sure to get the link between the fridge and the theme, but that was fun.

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.
