This was a nice game :)

You achieved the theme very well!

*kid wakes up and sees footprints* "MOM! Get the gun!"

What a messed up family XD

Decent mood and cinematography, pretty good graphics, but very slow and limited interaction and not a terribly creative use of theme. Short, though, and worth a play :)

Good work on the graphics. The player moves too slowly imho. Great atmosphere

Nice job. (though very Unity fps-esque...)
I only wished there would be a twist at the end of the story.

Nice atmosphere, man. This very neutral place is creepy in a way. I kind of feel like he killed himself too.
Very abstract and nice.

I like it. Theme interpretation similar to mine

Not bad, less of a game then an interactive narrative. I liked the art style quite a bit.

Fit the theme nicely. Short enough to play through and get both endings. Impressive how much you built in just 48 hours. I'd love to see what more you could do with it.

Making the character move super slow just to make the game longer... meh. but it was nice, could be longer.

Minimalistic, simple, but conveys a message. Good job, sir!

you don't lock the house cursor
unskippable text messed up the pacing for me
i had to press e to pick up the keys - i couldn't just click?

the screen isn't wide enough it seems in the browser - text going of the right side of the screen.

(i meant mouse cursor, not house cursor)

Greate game. Could have been slightly more fast paced. That music haha. Loved it in a weird way, well done :)

Weird game. The story makes no sense, movement speed is painfully slow, interactivity is extremely low.

The atmosphere of mystery and graphics were pretty well done though.

I tried Chrome and Firefox and the game doesn't launch in neither :(
the screenshots are nice though!

Whoa, liked it a lot :)
Pros
* Theme implementation is very well done
* Great Graphics and creepy atmosphere
* Story was quiet good

Few issues I came by -
* Movement was a bit slow, I had to struggle with it (of course it justifies the genre of the game, but still I had a bit hard time to implement it

* Some text went out of the screen.

Overall it was very well done , Cheers :D

Cool story. I didn't found the other ending though. I may if i try harder but i should play more games.

Nice looking game, would have been nice to have a higher mouse sensitivity and a longer story

The music was super funky, and the atmosphere felt like a horror game.

Enjoyed it :)
My issue was that whenever i looked left or right my mouse left the screen and i had to move my mouse really strange to get it back into the screen again every 10 seconds :(

The walking speed is reaaaally slow. Nice graphics and audio.

So, technical issues first:
For whatever reason, my cursor was able to leave the game window (Web), so looking around was kind of an inconvenient thing to do. Also, the right side of the screen was cut off a little because some of the text was offscreen.

I admire that you created an entire situation in this time, however small. Your game is clearly complete. The visual style, I'm not a fan of, but it's consistent and that's something lacking in a lot of games I see. Audio is kind of meh, but I very much like the alarm clock sound.

"You are not a monster" :D Had the mentioned problem with right part of text cropped a bit too

This was an interesting concept. But I didn't really feel motivated to be a monster. I didn't feel the character was justified.

It looked great though, and it was presented with such style, the dream sequence at the beginning, the flashing text. All well done I thought.

Good work!

Good game, it was quite the humoristic adventure game! It was however a little short and you moved so slow!

I think it's a short version of many crime films.
Rare to see things like this in a game jam!

Cool short game, with a bizzare story.
Moves were a bit slow, i guess it's the 6:30AM effect... I liked the dark atmosphere and music combinations. Maybe it lacks a bit of interactions.
That was fun and left me with a weird feel, as if I was missing something => Ok, i found the second ending, now i'm even more confused :)
Hum, as their are a lot of empty frames in the hero's room, my theory is that he did not killed his neightboor, he made some naked body painting with him.

Good job. It's a little short, but a good concept.

Pretty short but I love the graphics and the audio adds so much to the mood you've set.

Player walks too slow, but I love the idea (mad fine artist haha). Well done

Great take on the theme, impressed that you managed to model all of this in 48 hours! Would have liked the game/story itself to be longer but this is Ludum Dare after all :p Movement was also very slow, but wasn't too much of a problem as the game is fairly quick to play. Good work!

igoramendola says ...

Pretty short, like mine hehehe... and it's an interesting interpretation of the theme. I liked that it has two endings. The graphics are simple, but aesthetically they look very good ^_^

Felt like the player moved too slowly, good presentation though, and a complete experience - well done!

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.
