D.A.Y.S.

by mattthehoopy - Compo Entry

An oddly dark game, inwhich a man decided to rid himself of his wealth in the hopes of a girl falling for him, as he throws away his capitalist chains... Through alcohol.

Drink yourself poor. You have 20 turns to lose £50,000 in the various bars in your city. You must try to balance your alcohol levels with your cashflow though, as you do not want to be banned from the pubs, clubs and bars.

Each venue has a trait:
- Pub - Medium Price, Medium Tolerance, Medium Time
- Club - Low Price, High Tolerance, Long Time
- Bar - High Price, Low Tolerance, Low Time

Succeeding in 3 minigames unlocks the chance to "Buy a Round"; the key to earning big money! This makes you much more drunk, but you spend £3000 or so.

If you're getting too drunk, drinking water will help bring you to your senses.

Will it all be worth it? Will the girl see that you've changed your ways? There's only one way to find out!

With full autosaving and loading functionality.

Too many bugs to play properly. I guess the idea was good in concept though so nice effort.

The game seemed kind of buggy (couldn't always click on some mini games or some certain bars for some reason o.o)

Overall I think I'd never finish up the 50,000 money wasting. There's just too much to drink :)

The position of the mouse seemed off on everything.

Also, I was not expecting the hall of mirrors glitch on the level I played.

Hm. It seems like an incorrect resolution breaks a lot of the unity UI stuff?
I will see if there is a fix when I have spare time.

I tried downloading it, but Chrome straight up blocked it.

Yeah, it'll do that to any .zip that contains a .exe that is unverified I'm afraid.

If you go to Options -> Advanced -> Malware Protection and untick it, you'll be able to download it.
I've had that issue a couple of times on different machines.

Hi ! I tried playing your game but most of the mini-games didn't work, pressing space and other keys didn't do anything... It's sad because the idea seemed good :/

Ahh, it looked really cool and the idea was great!, sadly the mini games didnt work as expected (tried on linux). Apart form the resolution i think theres a problem with the spacebar also,.

Interesting take on the theme, and implementing that many minigames in 48 hours can't have been easy (though, I the vodka and martini minigames seemed to be broken). Very good effort.

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.
