Look at your Feet

by Verz - Jam Entry

"There was a time when I cared about where the things I own came from. When did I change? What shaped me into a different person?"

A little artgame about the life of a factory worker. Make shoes as fast as you can until management is satisfied with your work!

Loved how the game looks and sounds like. The idea is about a serious subject, but with some added dark humour in it. Not that much related to the theme, though.

I laughed loudly when I failed. Awesome game!

5/5 I loved the art, the music, the chill gameplay. Only problem being it's not that related to the theme but still a welcome entry

The graphics were really good, but the game was not really related to the theme and the gameplay was really repetitive. Thanks for the entry! :)

Totally awesome game.

I played it without read the description and it was shocking to discover what the game was about. Specially love the art

That was terrifying when first shoe wasn't good enough... Very interesting concept. To people, who thinks that it's not related to the theme - you are literally shifting shapes! :)

This is the Dark Souls of job simulators.
The message is not lost on me.

Great graphics! Gameplay is repetitive - but I think it was intended to be. :)

Excellent entry. I can't say I enjoyed it because it isn't about enjoyment (I guess hence why no Fun category xD), but it struck a deep chord and resonated well.

Wonderful.

Interesting game, very polished, intuitive. Great entry overall.
To improve maybe the fact that it has nothing to do with the theme (not a big deal since it's a jam entry) and that it becomes a bit repetitive :)

This is a hidden gem of this LD edition. Great game. Gameplay not terrible (I guess this is part of the point), but ambiance, graphics, and music (is an original record?) makes this quite enjoyable and especially deep for a LD entry. Very touching.

I felt very abused by this game. I don't want to make shoes anymore!

Nice game!

Very nice work, OSOM.

Very nice entry. I almost made it, or so I thought. Only 4 shoes left but ran out of fingers.

Well done, nice game :)

Really love your style, didnt know this one was made for the ludum dare, all your games are killers

May 10, 2016 @ 12:22am

The art and the music was both well done, but I think the commentary about "being who you are" seemed a tad...shoehorned in?

I'm sorry. That was not clever.

Well done overall, and I definitely think that was one of the prettier games I played this jam.

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! We're realizing a video with several winners of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

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.
