Patient 36

by Dastina - Jam Entry

Play as Patient 36 and work through the observation rooms in search for truth. What made it right for others to give you all this pain?

A 3D FirstPerson Puzzle Platformer where the player have to use gamemechanics and environment to proceed. Great to play with headphones on because of dialogues, however, don't have them on max volume.

Controls are standard WASD, Mouse to press items, Space to jump.

Hope you enjoy my game! It is my first Ludum Dare and I made it alone with hopes for completing it for the compo, however it took longer than expected and I made it for the Jam. :)

There are obvious roots in another first-person, 3d, puzzle-platformer, but I find it does a good job of introducing some different mechanics. I did find the mouse controls to be a bit too sensitive, I'm not sure if there is a way to change that, and some way to exit the game after it ends would be a nice addition.

Those sounds when taking the needles sound so painful!

Pretty awesome puzzle game! Found it quite interesting that you could only take one power at a time. Got a serious Portal vibe from the game, and the continuous voice acting really helped make the mood.

I have updated the OS X build and it should be the right one now. :)

Great small game, and the voice acting is fantastic. The only bad thing is that the boxes is bit hard too move.

Nice game! The pain voice is great! Red power up is something to do with moving box, but I cont figure it out.

Not locking the mouse ruined the experience for me :( kept clicking on other windows on my secondary monitor.

Very good! I like the sense of mystery, and the revelation of the story through the narration of the announcer. It looks nice too!

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.
