Pub Master

by Ace - Compo Entry

A simple, short, game (~10 hours of work in it) about being an innkeeper/bartender.
Serve your customers or they'll get angry.

Pouring out drinks or missing orders will cost you money, serving orders gives you tips.

How many days will you manage?

Controls are simply WASD, walk into the shelves of bottles to mix a drink, the taps to pour some beer, or the sink to pour out drinks or grab glasses of water.

Linux builds will be up as soon as possible.

The costumers come a bit too fast, but it was pretty fun and stressful.

This game is simple and follows the theme. But the costumer orders are too fast and you just can't keep up with it.

The frantic-icity is a slight bit by design actually, figured it would be better with a short and fun game rather than a long one that just drags on with no added content.

Normally I'd ask if there's things to improve too, but considering how little time I had to spend on it I already know the answer to that question...

Almost as stressful as a real bar tender. I really liked the mechanic of pouring out the drinks if you mess up an order. This added a layer of difficulty i wasn't expecting, This might have been helped with more polished graphics to make it clearer what sections provide what drinks.

The customers speed wouldn't be such a large issue if holding a direction button would make you keep moving, instead of the "tap, tap, tap" single tile movement that you have now.
