Pretty trippy, Once I got to the blender part I received a ton of null references and was doomed to light cigars forevermore

I don't know if I was supposed to laugh as hard as I did for the pill popping sound effect but I did! The mouse control needs a little tweaking, I had to roll it off the game to move far enough and then it moved back to my starting position when rolled back onto the game..

This is pretty great. The humor and weirdness is right up my alley. Couple suggestions though:

1. Is it possible to put a mouse cursor lock on the web version? It makes it really difficult to click on stuff..

2. I'd make the first watermelon-squishing section a lot shorter, I spent a long time in there (mostly because of issue #1) so I thought that was going to be the entire game... but I'm glad I didn't stop there!

Definitely makes me feel like I just did some clinical drug. I don't know that makes me feel though...
Cool idea.

Excellent game, one of the strangest I've played and also one of the most interesting, theme was great, graphics were excellent and the mood was astonishing. You have done an excellent job here conveying the monster theme without actually saying it anywhere. Excellent job.

Not sure if this should have an epilepsy warning? :P

Great use of audio. the screaming sound the cigars make is awesome and the music is pretty cool throughout! My favourite part was the cake making section. Great sense of humour. I'm glad I played!

Very trippy, and I liked all the "mini-game"esque way of the "adventure". It had some pacing issues - the watermelons was way too long and after lighting the cigars wasn't sure what to do, took a bit - then got it.

Loved the pshychodelical trip! Nice game with a lot of gameplay variations. I guess I'll eat the pill more often :).

Yeeeeah! Trippy as hell...
Sometimes felt controls a bit unresponsive but... who cares about that? XD

Really interesting game! I included it in part 18 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

I showed those eggs who was boss. They won't try to harsh my buzz again any time soon!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
