Make Some Friends!

by Clavus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Make some friends!

Some people are sad, angry, or even depressed. Their own little emotional islands. They need a helping hand; connect them with the happier folk to lighten their mood! However, the more people you connect, the more unwieldy the group becomes. Can you SAVE EVERYONE *cue drama*?

I wanted to take a more abstract approach to the theme this time around. Welp, still ended up creating a physics toybox.

(if you really can't be arsed, the number keys will bring you to their respective levels)

OS/X version is untested. Let me know if it works!

Very fun game! Challenging. Congrats. For a given arrow length generated force could be a little bit stronger.

Great idea ! I find it a bit difficult but I love the concept, and the game looks clean and is well explained.

@mess110: are you sure you have LOVE 0.9.1 installed? The love.math library wasn't available until version 0.9.

@Flyinpig5: you should be able to override Chrome's .exe flagging.

cute game; the OS X build works, although scrolling/zooming with a trackpad doesn't work so well

I absolutely liked this game. It has an innovative concept and allows player to solve the puzzles that have some deeper sense.

Nice game.. Very cute with the emoticons and nice mechanics..
With a nice background music could be a 5/5 but for no 4/5

Relaxing. And that sound, like those magnetic orb things clicking together. Maybe that's what it is? Could do with some smooth background music too.

Really fun, hard, but I am not sure how you could have avoided that.

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.
