I really enjoyed this game. I haven't seen any other phone operator games... ever. Really nailed the experience. I also enjoyed the tutorial was basically the game.

I would have been a terrible phone operator hahaha.

Very unique and very challenging. I would now love to play something more advanced with sounds and interaction with the callers.

Really innovative idea!! While loading the game, I was hoping to hear a voice say it's desired destination call number. With some sounds this game would be even better! Good work! :)

Fantastic. I wish the game had some sound though, maybe the sound of cables flailing around and a digitized voice actually telling the desired number when you jack in the cable. Would have added to the already brilliant chaos :-)

This was just too much fun after I got a handle on things! And once again it's been proven that my cable management is terrible..

Love it! Once I jumped in, it didn't take long to figure out how to play. This was really cool - looks great, plays well, feels frantic. I would totally play a real-life arcade version of this game.

Great work on the graphics, beautiful! Some sfx (a 'click' of a pin hitting a slot) would really enhance the experience.

Good stuff!

Very unique take on the theme, I like it!

A very innovative concept, sort of like Papers Please in how it turns a mundane task into something fun. The graphics are very nice but I would have liked some sfx and music. As far as I can tell there's no real way to lose you just don't get any points so there's nothing really motivating the player. Despite this though it's a really good game

Had really fun playing it! Just audio was missing and i wish it had it. Keep up good work! :)

I always wondered what it would be like to work a switchboard.

Nice touch on the appearance of the hanging gabled.

This is so awesome. I wonder if something bigger can be done from this. Mini-storylines from the callers, maybe? Oh, and yeah, sounds!

I'm a sucker for modular synthesizers - so this game had me hooked ages ;)

This is addicting! I got a lot faster when I realized that the headphone jack and cable were regular jacks and cables.

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.
