by goodolvic - Jam Entry

You've arrived at the train station. Now simply walk across to the exit...

Created in 2 days for Ludum Dare 33 using Adventure Game Studio with a template by Björn 'Ghost' Ludwig. Graphics created with PS CS2.

This game is still in progress. Known issues:

- Missing some scripting, in case something that should work doesn't work.
- Inventory bar is visible in the title screen. Avoid the top of the screen.
- Crash at the end before the status/credits screen. Press ESC to exit.

Animations are cool, and it has a cool graphical "feel" to it.

I felt back in the good old days of the Commodore C64. The graphics is nice. I am not sure how nuch I have seen since the game crashed at the stairs up.

Well. It's not much of a game, unless I'm missing something here. I tried handing things over to people but it seems I can't give things away. There's also no other interaction besides looking at people and the various advertisements, and picking up that one penny.

While the flavor-text and general mood are nice, it just doesn't amount to very much. It could be expanded a lot by adding further interactions with the various objects, as well as what adventure games are known for: combinational puzzles. Perhaps even a dialogue tree to allow us to interact a bit further.

I'm guessing the implication here is that we're the monster because we don't give anything to all the homeless people? In that case, why not drive the implication further by adding actual dialogue with the people that forces the player into awkward situations and so on? As it is now it doesn't feel like there is any real point to the game as the message is just too vague and there aren't any actual game play elements that could provide a point.

This feels really good to play. I like the twist on the standard point-and-click game.

I got a crash when I walked up the stairs, but I assume that was the end anyway?

Great animation work. Leaving the art uncoloured gave it a sense of atmosphere. The message in the game was a nice take on the theme.

Honestly, I'm not sure if I'm getting it. He sure is a monster, refusing to even give away a quater. Also, it crashed trying to go up the stairs, but you seem to be aware of that.

It's good to see a non-standard (but entirely correct) take on the theme. I was very impressed by the look and feel of the art and animation as well. Very nice!

That art is fantastic. Absolutely refreshing. The message was a bit on-the-nail, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Congrats!

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.
