The Drinking Game

by ReactorScram - Jam Entry

Warning: This game contains mild sexual humor and cartoony death.

"Drinking Game" is a cutesy dating sim based on the TV show "The Dating Game"

Use WASD, arrow keys, and Enter to ask a question. Each contestant will answer. You get 5 questions, then you must pick your favorite contestant.

Music and UI sounds by "Wow!" <>

Voice acting by Elijah Lucian.

Edit: The "aww" and "boo" lights don't do anything, sorry.

Oh wow, that ending was unexpected, I like it. Interesting idea, although not exactly a "game" I guess. Are the "awww" and "boo" cues triggered somehow? For me it would only trigger the laughs every now and then.

It'd be nice if you could just provide a .LOVE file to run, instead of either source or a Windows binary.

Anyhow, it's a funny game. The ending is pretty realistic as a parallel to real love, no? Plus the excellent coincidence of being made in LOVE.

Hey SuperDisk. I'm pretty sure the source .zip can be played as a .love file?

And yes the graphics are cartoony but the feels are real.

I think this is the first game I gave a 5 in Audio to (50+ rates). Great sound design throughout.

Ohhh, I love the personalities and the whole setting and the dark ending! It reminds me a bit of the game 'Eversion'. Great work! <3

That was really cute and fun! Who knew beverages had such good pickup lines?

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
