Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Interrogation Room

by Dagegen - Compo Entry

You have been taken into custody and are about to be interrogated by the police.
If you want to leave the interrogation room as a free person, you have to convince the officers of your made-up story.

You have five seconds to select one of four answers.
You have to remember the choices you already made, while also making sure that new answers don't cause any contradictions.

Controled by mouse.

Sound effects made with sfxr.

Though the concept is nice and innovative, there's only a few questions and the sound gets cut in half sometimes. Also if you hold the mouse button too long it registers it as an answer to the next question.

Cool idea, not that cool results.

There's a problem with the panels overlapping each other in the windows fullscreen version. The game is compelling, though.

The difficulty didn't come as much from remembering, but from having time to actually read.

Interesting idea. Not very fun imo but different strokes for different folks.

It's quite confusing to say the least. The questions started at random, it's hard to link them up as something non-contradictory before you get the Game Over screen. Such as this :
1. How old are you?
2. Do you own a dog?
3. Do you own a weapon?
4. When is the last time you've met your sister?
5. Game Over.

I really liked the game idea! When it asked for my age after giving my date of birth it was hard haha.

Nice idea! I think this game need 3 options: Score, Backing track and backing image for the story.

The idea is good. Nothing new but its still fun. I wish there was a score counter and a timer that showed how much I had left. Theme kinda fit, but I wish there were some background graphics, maybe just a room with a table and a lamp pointing at you. Some questions were a bit repetitive, so maybe make sure it doesn't pick same question twice in lets say 5 questions.

Otherwise the game was pretty well done. The text was big enough to be read quickly

Good game. I really try to beat it but it was really hard for a non-english speaker.

There's something really funny about this, where the cops keep asking questions forever until you finally snap :D

I liked it. Did you do something data driven for all the questions or did things just link together in code? I wouldn't blame you for the latter, 48 hours is not enough time for any of this! Great work, be proud.

Nice! Quite hard to read all answers and answer the questions in time, but that adds to the thrill of the interrogation!

I would have liked it if there were a "You contradicted yourself" screen showing me which lines where contradictory!

Good job! Keep up the good work!
