A (dis)connected world...

by royvanrijn - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This Ludum Dare (#30) I've created another point-n-click adventure. I've been drawing like a maniac but still managed to find time to include sound effects and music.

Good luck with the adventure/puzzles, if you need advice go back to the desk to get a hint.

p.s. The baby stayed where it was during the competition (in the womb). Hopefully I've got some time to play other LD games before my wife goes into labour. This LD was horrible with two pending deadlines!

That was nice and easy, the Mythbusters were random and funny, good job being able to do something like this given the circumstances

Impressive scope for a 48 hour game.

That was very entertaining! I really wanted to kill that fly... maybe the flyswatter can be released as DLC. Loved the art and music.

Very good presentation! Loved the wacky humor and puzzles - reminded me of old adventure games.

I've stored and uploaded all the original hand drawings, they are in the source directory:
(some stuff wasn't used)

The most surprising thing was making the lion's 'roar' with the microphone and some Audacity effects, turned out much better than I suspected.

got stuck eventually, but I am going to revisit it again and again until I figure it out!

This is beyond good work!
Like the style, looks like 12 oz Mouse!

Amazingly good!

Really good! I love the details!

Pretty cool adventure game, nice to see a point and click game. Cool art style and this was pretty funny entry.

Very funny, beautifull and nicely done, ROAAAAR!!! XD One of the best :)

Nice art style.

Music and sound could've been a little more quiet.

Many of the puzzles are a little too straight forward but..

Given the time frame, it's very nice.

Making a complete point-and-click adventure is great accomplishment. Congratulations!

The only thing I'd ask for is being able to "fast travel" double-clicking on an arrow of a location already visited.

Steve: Easy puzzles

I've had complains last time people couldn't find stuff, that is was too hard. This is a very hard thing to balance. I'd rather have it a bit too easy so people can finish, like and rate it ;-)

luismb55: Fast travel, nice, I'll add that to the engine for another compo!

Very short, but quite enjoyable and very funny. Especially the butcher.

Very funny, was fun to play the sneak previews as you developed it too!

Really came together in the end and feels polished and complete. Its easy to underestimate the effort and code and artwork behind it all.

Super :D

Wow, a pointNclick in 48hours, it's quite rare.
The whole hand drawing style is great, and I found the puzzles well designed.
Maybe some more visual enhancement for clickable objects in order to avoid the "move the mouse everywhere to find what to click", but it's just a comfort issue.

Great! loved it. With enough oxidizer anything can be rocket fuel I guess lol

Aug 26, 2014 @ 5:39pm

Yeah! A salami rocket! Did they add too much preservatives?

Aug 26, 2014 @ 6:03pm

Really impressive! Really thankful for the hints at the desk, don't think I would have finished without them

About the salami rocket; that was an actual confirmed Mythbusters myth

Of course! Salami! What else would provide a similar thrust per weight ratio!

Nice drawing, cute story!

I loved this game, the music, and SALAMI!!! (Even though it would have been more obvious to steal fuel from the car).

Enjoyed the art and general mood of the game. Got stuck after a bit, but I'll probably come back to check on what I am missing. Well done.

Nice graphics and very impressive to be able to create this in 48 hours. Great job!

Sep 7, 2014 @ 6:45pm

Really nice graphics and story! I included it in part 19 of my Ludum Dare 30 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

Sep 12, 2014 @ 1:37pm

Yeah, a point & click ! I must say this is a very...unique entry XD.

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.
