My Little Metal Joint

by ladybenko - Compo Entry

IF YOU ARE PLAYING IN THE EMBEDDED VERSION, CLICK ON FULLSCREEN so the game actually fits. Sorry about that.

Manage your very own heavy metal joint, to the glory of Odin and your brothers and sisters of metal!

\m/ Rock on \m/

Authors note: the game is heavily unbalanced, but at least I'm happy I submitted! I've been sick the whole compo and still managed to submit, so hell yeah.

I had lots of fun doing pixel art for this one <3

The graphics looks great, though I didn't get what to do in this game actually. The happiness were raising but the money were always running out.

I don't exactly understand how to get customers to come and stay :S But the pixel art is nice. Make sure to include some instructions or tutorials for your future games :)

Pixel art was great. Dont know if its an error but there was no music. Which seems a bit odd. Little bit unclear what/if you can do other than press the buttons...

It's confusing for me. Sometimes writers just randomly appear and disappear?

The art is great, but I think the game is not working correctly...? Clicking on the buy buttons doesn't seem to do anything and I don't really know what else to do :/

Eh... I looks cute and everything, but having no control over the clients, I'm not sure how this is supposed to work?

Wasn't entirely sure how to keep my customers, but nice job!

With deeper mechanics and more balance this game could really shine. Loved the idea!

The pixel art is the best. Which stat is the drunkenness level?
I hope you are feeling better.

I didn't find how to not loose money, maybe vodka is not the best drink :0
Graphics are kinda cool

Nice idea, little bit balancing would do wonders as you said :)

The pixel art is great and the game could be too but there are instructions missing. for example: i dont know how to get the visitors to be not drunk anymore or how to make them happy.

Great Visuals, Unfortunately I don't understand the gameplay

Dec 11, 2014 @ 11:38am

Game looks great but I did not understand how it worked or how to play.

The pixel art is great, but what am I supposed to do? Just select a waiter, and buy new booze when we run out? Too bad about the lack of audio :(

Hope you get well soon!

OH NO! A drunken fight put me in debt and I couldn't recover. ;_;

Neat, simple management sim. Could use some metal tunes, though!

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.
