Tourette's Cop

by lukepilgrim - Jam Entry

Thanks for playing my game :) Post your highscores, if you want!
Playable with touch(mobile/tablet etc) or mouse!

Tech: HTML5 Game, Used: Construct 2, Audacity, Gameboy+LSDJ, Flash

Story: In the near future your city will be destroyed by a monster. Beeing the good cop you are, your mission is to ask all the citizens, if they know who/where the monster is. But unfortunately you suffer from tourette's syndrome, which makes the whole situation a bit uncomfortable.
Good Luck finding the right words on your mission!

Gameplay: Click (Mouse or Touch) the correct speech bubbles. Get the Highscore (On Kongregate)

Comment: Made this in about 10 hours, mainly because I wanted to have the ability to play and vote games, which is always a lot of fun! Everything you see, play or hear is selfmade within the time frame. Highscore works only when on kongregate. Sometimes some sounds might not play or the music won't loop - I have no idead how to change that and I think it might be browser related or it's a problem with the engine I used: Construct 2. The Background music is made on my gameboy.

That made me laugh haha!
Pretty simple gameplay and a bit too repetitive, also a bit too easy.
I really liked the music, but it didn't loop.

The interpretation of the theme is brilliant. The gameplay is simple, but it works well and is surprisingly fun. Loved the finger snapping when the clock went into the small numbers. Butt-poop is my new favourite insult.

Humor is great :D Gameplay is a bit too easy, but I liked it. The gfx is rough but appealing :D

Interesting idea, though a bit repetitive.

That was funny. It's not often games can make you laugh with the mechanics. Well done.

For what it is, it's very good. You did a nice job taking a simple mechanic game, and perfectly blending humor with it. Really did feel .... tourette-y. Funny stuff.

Great music - perfect for the style you chose. The art reminded me of the Rhubarb cartoon (uk circa 1975....).

This genuinely made me laugh, DICKHEAD! Excuse me, great job on the storyline, the graphics and sounds are just perfect, the snipping when the time runs out cracked me up. :D
This doesn't need more gameplay, YOU IDIOT! I'm sorry... I love it!

Easily one of the best games I've played this LD. Well done on a really great entry.

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 (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.

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.
