Hey, just a heads up- if you upload the .zip you can create a sharable link that goes directly to it instead of having google drive zip everything up (and making us wait a while!)

Really cool concept! Great art style, and I had quite a bit of fun trying to get it exactly perfect. Is there an ending, or does it just go forever?

yeah there is an ending at the year 66, it would be worth getting to it , thanks a lot man )ill fix that now :) , let me know if you get to the end and what you thought

Hey nice game, art looked really retro, and it fits the theme.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:27am

I got to the ending, it was a simple yet addictive game. Nicely done on the art style as well!

I love the art and animation! The smoking is a nice touch. Kind of reminds me of Papers Please. There's not a lot to it though. After losing a couple times, I wasn't interested in continuing to play. I found it hard to tell whether there was a gray box or not in some places.

I really liked the black and white art style

Simple game adding just a bit of music would do wonders.

To anyone playing, please stick it out and get to the ending. I honestly would have made the game a little bit shorter, because the ending was the touch that took this game to the "hah! wow!" level for me. The game crashed on launch for me once, but I think it may have just been a bug on my end because it's been stable since. If you continue developing this game, I highly recommend checking out "The Producers" and making your music sound something like the room full of accounts scene. Making this kind of a rhythm game to that kind of music would, I think, just be hilarious and really help add to the mood you've created. Good job!

I got up to 170,000, then missed one and had to restart :(

I liked the animations and the art style alot!

Don't know. Felt kind of unfair, because "space" key is not so accurate and I got game over for like making the red line 1 nano meter over the grey box?
Anyway, the 60ies theme is greatly transferred and the setting is hilarious.
Hardworking fellows like insurance man, once made Amerika great ;-)

Fun game. The game is actually pretty entertaining for being a single button game. I have always liked timing games and you made this one brilliantly. I got to the ending. Great job.

Played til the end, good job. Probably a little too long and could use some ambient music. Great retro look and use of the theme.

As others already pointed out:

- Space is not that precise. Mouse click would be easier
- If you miss the start by one little bit you get way too much penalty
- Waiting until 66 is kinda too long. The end is funny but it just takes forever
- It kinda sucks that once you can't deny a claim you have to start from the beginning. You could for example just remove money from the bank and only make it game over once this hits zero

Otherwise cool game.

Interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/-i4m-nVpQ4M
