I liked the aesthetics very much! Also the music was top notch! And I like point 'n click games so this was a very nice surprise for me.

There was some times when I didn't quite know what to do next.

I like it overall but a bit more guidance to where go fishing next would've been nice.

All in all a nice entry! Kudos!

Rage quit on the dance floor. Coughed up a lung. Was claimed by some lady. 10/10

This was great! I love the graphics and the theme. It's funny and fun to play. it has a lot of different gameplay elements. I wish I could beat the 'relaxing' part because I want to play the entire game :D!

I wasn't expecting any of these... The humor is definitely strong in this one!

BTW, that's exactly me on the dance floor!

Like @chipcaramel I raged quit on the dance floor. It's hard to figure out how to put glasses in part one too. But it still a good gam, nice work

Part 3 was really hard. Almost gave up, but I tried and tied and got it in the end.

There was one point I got caught at 0:00 and wondered if I had to pick all the bits up before it counted as a win.

Nice music and art.

Thanks for your comments! Part 3 is hard indeed, well done if you passed it ;-)

I we find some time we'll try to add some more guidance within the game, about the controls and objectives of each part.

That was a really great game. Loved the morning music, left it on in the background for awhile :)

Impeccably made art and music, and the game itself is fun as well, with lots of attention to detail. Awesome!

Great job on the game, the lack of direction is one thing that may hinder other players' progression.

Cool game, lovely visuals. Loved the first part's music.

Not sure if the controls in part 3 were being unresponsive but parts 1 and 2 were pretty hilarious especially that little electrocution animation in part 1.

The graphics are pretty good! I also liked the music and the sound effects, but the gameplay is too hard, I had some difficulty to finish the second part and I did not finish the game.
The humor is absolutely 5/5!

Overall, you have an awesome entry =)

Really nice graphics and music, though the mini-games were surprisingly difficult. Are you meant to be able to escape the lady on the dancefloor after she catches you? Great work!

Dear players,

Thanks again for your comments.

We took in consideration your feedback and released a slighlty updated version of the game with more guidance in the gameplay. This includes:
- Short written instructions in part 1 and 3 about game objectives and character control
- subtle graphic elements as hints to guide the player in part 1
- In part 2: a counter to show how many more organs you need to pack
- In part 3: a counter to show how many organs remains before you die
- In part 3: a (very slight) decrease in difficulty ;-)

I hope this will improve your gaming experience!

Have fun!

Good idea and sound, nice graphics, but after getting 2 or 3 thinks in the box at work the speed was too fast for me :(

Enjoyable and fun! Great art and take on the theme. Good job guys!

Great pixel art! Very well done, I just wish the whole game would have been similar point and click adventure as the first part. Part 3 was too hard :(

nice idea and old-fashioned art.

I liked this a lot! The concept was very original and the presentation was great both in the music and art department! The gameplay was simple and to the point yet managed to be challenging at the same time. I only found the relaxing section's controls very clunky but that was probably the point. That said, fantastic entry!

Very pretty :3

The dancing part too hard because of how it controls, in comparison to the visual cues. It seems that you overlayed top view steer-left-and-right movement onto a side view with perspective... It's really awkward and I can't play it...
Why didn't you just do it with basic directional input: press left to go left, up to go up, etc ?

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.
