Gay Love Cop

by SuperPokeunicorn - Compo Entry

There has been a murder.
Last week, a gay man was killed by his date. None of the victim's friends knew the date, but the victim told them several facts about the murderer before he died. Unfortunately, they are all sexual clues, the kind of stuff that's not publicly available. But there is one way around this. You've had the idea to invite all of the suspects to a speed dating place where you can interrogate them under the guise of a date. You only have a limited time with each suspect, so don't mess this up. You may want to get out a pen and paper to keep track of the information you extract. Good luck officer!

Gay Love Cop is a gay love sim murder mystery detective game, because why not. Use the number buttons to select dialog options and use the space bar to switch between suspects. Once you have exhausted a suspects conversation, press 9 to accuse them of the crime. If you fail the first time, close and reopen the game to try again and perhaps gather more information about each suspect before making a second guess. Don't just guess at random; that's no fun. Note that this game does NOT shoot for accuracy and is intended to be humorous (not in a homophobic way or anything. I'm bi and would never make those kinds of jokes. This game is 100% in good fun). Hopefully all of the terminology in the game is in order and makes sense. If you are unfamiliar with any of the terms used in this game, feel free to Google search them (at your own risk ;) ).

PLEASE NOTE: This game contains NSFW language and themes, but no NSFW visuals.

I love the daring take on the theme, haha :D
I've played it through twice and I'm not really sure what it wanted me to do. Guess I chose the wrong conversational options. Cute graphics tho, nice effort! :)

I... I don't quite know what's going on or if I like it.

Unique/10

Also the text kinda squishes together, might be my resolution though

You got brownie points for mentioning the Co-optional podcast aha! Wasn't' expecting the conversations to go the way they did.

Nice game play. I wish the transitions for conversation items were more fluid though.

with a name like Gay Love Cop, you know that it'll certainly be interesting. I'll admit that I found the game a little bit awkward, but it was ultimately very silly and entertaining, in a very offbeat way.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
