Crossworld Club

It's my first Ludum Dare!

When I saw the subject, I decided I wanted to explore two "original" aspects of the theme : crossover fiction (<=> connected fictional worlds) and social links.

The game is also a tribute to a specific gameplay in "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening". I'll be curious to know if some of you noticed it. In fact, any feedback is appreciated!

I used Construct2, Paint.NET and Audacity.

Hah, that was awesome. A cool experience. I also liked your humour.

Oh LOL. The ending is SO f'ing great. Laughed really hard.

Also, really sweet pixel art and music. Only thing I'd change is to use some pixely font for the dialogs that matches the rest of the visuals better, but besides that, a really sweet game.

I went to a bar with Harry Potter, Link, Hannibal, Batman, Robin, a bouncer named Jay, Lara Croft who appears to be on a date with Charlie Chaplin, the couple from Pride and Prejudice, and Harry Potter... and I made a name for myself for a mysterious boss.

11/10 would play again

Aug 25, 2014 @ 5:14pm

Just perfect, short but surprising and funny. If only good old Lucas Art was still there, and not owned my a mouse ...

esayitch says ...
Aug 25, 2014 @ 5:20pm

Very stylish and atmospheric, I liked it a lot! The only downside, if it can be called that, is the simple gameplay. But it serves the game well so it's not really a downside :P Ending was great!

Hyoga-3D says ...

Nice game using famous caracthers, but did not get the theme on the game :(

Liz England says ...
Aug 25, 2014 @ 7:31pm

Loved this little game! This is the first time I've seen this interpretation of the theme (fandom crossovers).

markusfisch says ...
Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:16pm

Did it! That was fun! Nachos, champagne and some very fine guests. I like that Crossworld Club!

That blinking disco floor reminded me of some Larry adventure. Good choice!

AndyBrown says ...
Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:57pm

That was quite amusing. I liked your take on the theme; it was a very original idea. The writing was pretty funny, and it was cool to see such an assortment of famous characters in one game.

Pierrec says ...
Aug 29, 2014 @ 7:00pm

The game is really nice! I wish it were more difficult though because talking to everyone once or twice is enough to get the prize.

Aside from that, both graphics and audio are good. And I like the theme interpretation a lot (maybe because it isn't that far from mine ^^ )

Graphism is cool, but the game is too short

I'll also add my "woot! old-school Leisure Suit Larry!" vote. Fantastic execution: very funny, but also no way I could stop before the end!

chowee says ...
Sep 4, 2014 @ 5:32pm

Not much to add except that this game is a great entry !! Except for the shortness of the experience I wouldn't guess that it is from a jam if I stumbled upon it by chance.

Really great work, the best compo entry I tried so far !

Tu as du talent, l'ami ! Continue ! ;)

mystakin says ...
Sep 8, 2014 @ 1:21am

That ending! :O Silly premise, but a solid start to an adventure game. Well done.

Sep 9, 2014 @ 6:55am

Great game! Really fun and well executed. Good job!

Menesetsu says ...

dadman says ...
Sep 11, 2014 @ 6:20pm

Really nice sound design and artwork! Very cinematic look which I liked. I thought it was a jam entry when I was playing it!

Frankus says ...
Sep 11, 2014 @ 7:44pm

Really liked the game, it's fun to see how each character helps to get to another character. Loved the Batman/Robin segment. Good game!

jprogman says ...
Sep 13, 2014 @ 4:19am

Characters from different worlds... connected by items... fits the theme to me. Nice work on the fetch quest.

Sep 13, 2014 @ 2:48pm

Very funny mashup :D

Cake&Code says ...
Sep 14, 2014 @ 9:21pm

The game art really reminds me of Earthbound for some reason! I really like the way you used the theme. It's definitely refreshing to play something new! I would love to play a longer version of this game that carries the idea through! Great work!

RawboSaurX says ...
Sep 14, 2014 @ 10:43pm

Cool, man! I'm not usually a fan of putting well known characters together in weird scenarios, but this actually worked. It didn't overstay it's welcome either, which is good. 20 minutes of walking around that room would have been nauseating, but it was short and sweet. And that's what I like ;)

phaser says ...
Sep 15, 2014 @ 2:55am

Very fun game, Great sense of humor

ajopart says ...
Sep 15, 2014 @ 8:44am

Really clever and overall a very funny game. You did a good job of mixing your franchises together, a very eclectic mix!

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.
