World of Joy

by Lancelot Gao - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game inspired by my daughter (1 year old).

The World in children's eyes must be different from ours. It's a world full of joy and surprise. We knew that world too. But as we grew older, we've lost the connection with it.

This game tried to rediscover the world of joy - a forgotten world connected with our reality world.

The screen's too big to fit in the browser.

The game challenges you to play different games that require good reactions and speed. It's obviously that the game is not for hardcore players, however, it's surprisingly enjoyable to play. The lovely graphics and pleasing background music and the details (like the keyboard!) all make up this interesting game.

I love the WarioWare style gameplay! Did not expect to see something like that from LD48 but I really enjoyed it.

Yeah, this was great fun to play - the treasure hunt level is hard though!

Very cute, really enjoyed it.

My favourite game was the keyboard monster one.

Very nice entry, well polished. I couldn't seem to beat the 'touch leaves' level, no matter what I did, but I'm sure I'm missing something. This has a nice feel to it, and I came away smiling.

Linux users cannot run web-unity and wine did not want to run the exe, sorry,

Game hint: move your mouse cursor on the leaves quickly to "Touch Leaves".

Fun and different, and the combination of photos and drawings was great. Reminds me of Wario Ware.

The graphics and audio is really nice! It is a difficulty but fun game nonetheless.

Some instructions for each of the game would be good. For example I wasn't sure how to play the the leave touching game until the second time I tried it.

Your game reminds us that the connection still exists if we want to go back to this world for an instant.

Yay, I got claps! Kinda nice idea. The leaves could be highlighted with some other color because I didn't notice it in the first round.

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.
