Little Office Troubles

by DrGeraud - Jam Entry

Spam your keyboard to defend NAZA against a massive hack !

The 3 screens are an obvious troll to the theme (but still, the game is set in one screen :D)

Lovely game you made here!

Great interpretation of the theme and some great fitting graphics. The amount of work you put in the smooth animation is very fulfilling to look at.

Took me a little to figure out what buttons to press, but when I did, it made sense and I liked it. It was fun and a good concept. Good job.

Nice interpretation of the theme, nice graphics and a cool little concept. Also appreciate the difficulty curve! Unsure why you're in the audio category though, as there is none in your game. :p

Wow, they f**ked all my computers.. :P

Very cool game Geraud ! I loved to smash my keyboard to get those hackers ass off, I lasted 1 min 10 :)

The graphics and audio are lovely, and the gameplay is simple but fun.

I really love what you did with the controls. It would have been easy to designate one or two buttons per screen, but you made entire swathes of the keyboard connect with a single screen, allowing somebody to mash random keys and feel like a guy in a movie. Amazing choice.

These are certainly very original controls, the resulting gameplay is quite refreshing. Well done!

the gameplay is kind of too simple, but the implementation is sound.

Needs more boobs. What an awesome art style for a game, loved the tap tap tap. I kept goofing on the middle keys but thats my own problem. Also thought it was awesome how he manages to stop hackers with one hand, because fuck hackers.

I was drinking coke, and played your game with one hands, so it was very realistic.

It's the funniest game I've played on this LD.
I actually laughed while playing it =D

This is great entry. The art is beautiful, audio is good. Gameplay is fun and gets pretty intense. Pretty unique use of the keyboard for controls too. Only critique I have is that it's pretty simple and doesn't offer much for replay value but hard to avoid with a jam game. All in all great job!

1:28 => I beat my colleague \o/ (above in the comments)

Great entry. Love the concept! I got 121. I tried playing with only my right hand (since that's all you have in the game) and gave up on that immersion close to the end =P

Aha this is an awesome game idea.
This game makes me panic aha!!
Love the take on the game, also the art is incredible.
Bravo messieurs!

Incredible art!! The gameplay is simple but efficient.
I like the way you set the mood with some simple details, put on perfect spots (like porn, or drinking sounds).
Great entry ;)

Yeah, Dr Gewo you get better at each new Ludum ! So I felt like a hero using his computers in ab action Movie ! Love the art, mood, sound, fun, mood, you know the stuff ! GG

Love the artstyle, and the way he fends of hackers singlehandedly. The music just adds to the chill atmosphere, however the game can get quite hectic after a while.
And it crashed while I was furiously taping on my keyboard. The clock showed 1:36 ... typical workday.
Great job!

Very polished, but not much content. It's fun to play, but gets old quickly because it's a very simple mechanic with not much to it. The sounds, music and graphics are all superb.
Hey, you cheated the theme, it was on three screens xD

Dec 14, 2014 @ 5:07pm

Yes, it's simple, but also super fun! :D I really had to laugh while hacking on my keyboard, because I felt like in these awkward "computer films" where people randomly type on their keyboards to look professional.

Nice game concept, I had lot of fun playing it! :)
I love how the cool music contrasts with the frantic button-mashing gameplay!
BTW, on one of my attempts, the game stopped sending viruses infection after about 2 minutes of play (did i typed too fast for the game? ;))

Those controls... ♥
Very inspiring!
I found the difficulty progression not that great, but aside from that it's excellent.

Really like the idea with respect to the theme and the graphics. I do think the pacing is a bit off -- it goes from boringly easy to impossibly hard at a certain point

Wayward says ...

Nice game and idea!
But tapping on the middle screen is a bit fidly because it's easy to tap the keys belonging to the left and right screens instead of those belonging to those for the middle.

Nothing special, but pretty fun and humorous.
FUCK THE NSA!!

And drink while against hack is so cool!
