Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

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.

by HellowPixl - Compo Entry

This is a game I made for Ludum-Dare.
You can move a Player in "One Room" and play multiple minigames in that room.
For example, you can play a game on the Players PC.
I will add SoundEffects and more minigame in the future.
If you like the game share it with your friends and subscribe to my YOutubeChannel for more weekly Updates of the Game.

PS:It's my first Ludum Dare and I am just programming with java for a year now so please rate fair.

Controls:
-MainGame:
-W,A,S,D to move
-Acuadoy(PC):
-Arrow Keys to move up and down.

If you have any problems:
1:Check my Youtube(Acuadoy Studios).
2:Write a comment.

You programmed that in 48 hours?!?! Really nice!

Dec 13, 2016 @ 6:18am

@Dester24 Yes I did. Thanks bro. For more updates of the game sub to my youtube (Acuadoy Studios).

You can possibly upload new executable version. Rules don't prohibit it I guess.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 7:30pm

@Vadim Ivshin I thought about that but I looked up many videos and couldn't find anything but if you like the game sub to my YouTUbe(Acuadoy Studios) I'll redo the whole game and make it great again.
If you know how to fix the bug please anwser me.

I was pretty happy playing this, any reason it couldn't have just been compiled [jar]? It wasn't terribly difficult to compile, so oh well :).

I won't harp on the graphics, we are programmers; but I don't think this is as much of a single room as it could be, but that's perfectly fine. It plays like Namco Arcade Classics , where you can select games to play.

Honestly it was fun.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 8:16am

@AngryAlbino If you can compile my game without any errors than pls send me download link for youre compiled version.

Oh my god. that's why people like you shouldn't make games. was trying to run it for like a hour. didn't get anything epic, just a boring little game with ugly graphics.

Vadim Ivshin says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:42am

Sorry, I don't know how to solve your problem, but at least you can rewrite game in another programming language or try to use some game making software.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:49am

@adrian09_01 Remember its my first ludum dare and I an only 14 years old. Secondly i will remake the whole game with all the graphics

Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:53am

@Vadim Ivshin As I said in the discription I will redo the game and make devlogs on my YouTube (Acuadoy Studios )so if you like the game make sgure you sub. there.

Splendidus says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:20pm

If you Refine the game. To add a little chart of the music will be great. Overall, not bad. Good Idea, the main thing not to quit.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:49pm

Splendidus Thanks for your feedback. Ill redo the game and add more features so stay tuned and subscribe to my YouTube ( Acuadoy Studios ).

TeamScripta says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:06pm

@AcuadoyStudios Please ignore @adrian09_01 comment, he represents the worst of the community. You should TOTALLY keep making games! It takes a lot of courage to do a game jam and you did it! You'll get better earch time! Don't give up!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:24pm

@TeamScripta I know i have ignored his comment all the time if you look all the time positive an one negativ then he mabey is just angry because my game is better.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:24pm

I'm glad you are getting into this. I'm sorry, I don't have time to download an IDE and compile it, but good luck continuing to learn programming.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:43pm

@dobnarr Thanks! NoProblem for not esting everything. But if you like the game just sub to my YouTube ( Acuadoy Studios ) cause ill redo the game and make it .jar

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:49pm

Download link did not work

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:55pm

GoofStudios than please try again i proved it it is working at my pc.
Remember there is just the java source code!

Neowedge says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:11pm

It is an interesting concept, but I need to play in order to rate!!! xD Making several minigames maybe was not a good idea if it is your first jam and you have no much experience, but I am sure you have learn a lot for the next!!!! :) :) :)

tommarx69 says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:11pm

Hi guy !
You're game looks fun (I looked the videos on YT).
If you want, I can help you to make the jar, I made my game in JAVA too (15 years old too :))
Good luck for finishing your game !

Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:55am

Haha The pong game was a nice touch. retro throwback!

BUNN1E5 says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 4:14am

This is pretty good for a first Ludum Dare. Everyone has problems when they first start out XD.

tommarx69 says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:52pm

Hi, I don't know if you've seen my message on YT, but I fixed your problems. The jar is downloadable here : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B87iCbakpDB9WjFFTE9CZmRaalU
Good luck

dominisz says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:00pm

I played using jar file provided by @tommarx69. Thanks man :-) @AcuadoyStudios, I think you should add this jar to entry page, so others could easy download it without scrolling through comments. You are just starting and You manage to create a game! Congratulations!

Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:07pm

@dominisz I have already added the file to the page now!
But I re-Uploaded it to my dropbox for that.
I have also asked him if I could make a video about that!

fafastudio says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:59pm

It lacks a bit of audio, but for a first ludum dare, it's pretty cool ! :)

Dec 16, 2016 @ 7:56pm

@fafastudio thanks for your feedback.
I 'll redo the whole game and you can sub to my youtube for more weekly updates of the game!

tylerraz says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:25pm

Good effort and you have some good plans to make it better.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:27pm

@tylerraz yes I have planned to redo the whole game and add more minigames fix all the bugs and much more so stay tuned and subscribe to my Youtube channel(Acuadoy Studios).

Watching the video's on youtube it looks like a well crafted room simulator. Thank you for submitting this game!

ACCBDD says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 12:08am

Love the take on the theme!

Dec 17, 2016 @ 7:08am

@Angelbait Thanks if you like the game sub to my youtube channel for more updates of the game.

Aster0id2000 says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 8:29am

Only 1 minigame, sad. Needs a few more and some sounds, then it will be a good product.

Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:36am

@Astwr0id2000 Ill add more mini games and sound in the furure so make shure you subscribe to my YouTube.

parias001 says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 7:15pm

Very nice concept! Please continue this game, it would be fun doing a lot of stuff in one room.

MementoGames says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 8:02pm

First of all, congrats on your first entry!
It's an awesome concept, but the execution was not that good. Yes, I know it's hard, but listen... keep working on it! The way you used the theme was great, but maybe was too much to grasp on your first entry. The art was good too!
Being 14 years old, you have a plenty of time to experiment and learn things.
Keep rocking! I hope to see you in the LD38. :)

Dec 17, 2016 @ 8:47pm

Unfortunately I wasn't to play this game. I could load up the Jar file fine and go through the menus, but when I got into the main game I wasn't able to move at all. I tried both WASD and the arrow keys, but no luck. Anyone else had this problem?

Turkey says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:10pm

@TeamBALD Same

Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:27pm

@TeamBALD and @Turkey I look tje error up and reupload the file. Go ahead and try it out again tomorow mabey there was a problem with uploading the game.

Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:29pm

@Turkey and @TeamBALD did you try it on mac or windows mabey the os/x one is Broken.

Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:35pm

@Turkey and @TeamBALD I tried the game but I could move around ok.There are still a few areas where moving is a bit tricky but I think you should just try it another time.

seano says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:37pm

The idea suited the theme, I could only find pong to play though!

Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:40pm

@seano I'll redo the whole game and add more.
But I'm only 14 and this time I head to learn for 2 class tests, so I basically run out of time.
If you liked the Idea make sure you subscribe to my YoutubeChannle(Acuadoy Studios) for weekly updates of the game!

delpes says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 10:39pm

Nicely done. Hope to see more LD Games from you

Dec 17, 2016 @ 10:53pm

@Delpes I'll do more games for ludum dare if ne next ld fits with my scool stuff.
Ill create mor games on youtube(Acuadoy Studios)and there Ill redo this game
aswell so subscribe there and stay tuned.

Dec 17, 2016 @ 10:54pm

@Berbecarul Thanks man.

TeamBALD says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 11:13pm

@AcuadoyStudios - still having the same problem with the Jar file. It's the Windows one I'm using btw, although you seem to have the same link for both versions?

Leeman says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 11:14pm

I really would like to play it however it seems like it doesn't recognize my controls and the character is not moving

Dec 18, 2016 @ 7:22am

@TeamBALD and @Leenan I dont know why you cant move I tryed it out. There somtimes is a bug wenn you move the frame.
Sorry it is woeking fine on my Windows

Dec 18, 2016 @ 10:53am

Ignore the people who are rude, participating and actually finishibg a game jam is something you should be proud of! I really hope that you will join again next time!

I liked your game, you have managed to code an impressive amount in a short period of time. Looking forward to seeing the game when you have continued development. Good job!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 11:22am

@Windmill Games Thank you for the nice words. If you like the game make sure you subscribe to my YouTube(Acuadoy Studios).

donvermo says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 5:57pm

I like the game, it's really good considering it is your first entry. I'm wondering how many games were actually in here?

Dec 18, 2016 @ 7:32pm

@donvermo Thank you for the nice words!

thedashdude says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:07pm

Creative to make a room with minigames in it, but you need more minigames.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:26pm

@thedashdude As I said in many comments befor, I will redo the whole game on my YouTube (Acuadoy Studios) there ill add more games and sound so stay tuned!

Uliana Galich says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:32pm

You can improve the audio and the graphics at some point :)
lol
but overall not bad :)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:40pm

@Uliana Galich Thanks for your nice words!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 9:41pm

@All Thank you all for the positive Feedback. You have motivated me to keep this project alive and Ill keep uploading Videos on my YouTube ( Acuadoy Studios )

Dec 19, 2016 @ 10:43am

Dear AcuadoyStudios, congratulations on finishing your first game. Although I can open the game and can go through to menus (but can't find a way to get back to start screen), in the main game I can't seem to move the character. Moreover, the game doesn't fit on my laptop screen. Playing on Windows 7. Didn't rate your game therefore.

On another note, I noticed that you posted the same generic comment to many different games on December 17. I understand that you really would like people to play your game, but so do the other game devs! Don't play the judging system, people will notice! (http://feedback.ld.intricati.com/?event=ludum-dare-37&uid=124049) Please actually play their games and give real feedback! ;)

Dec 19, 2016 @ 1:10pm

@Dining Philosopher I know that I write many people the same comments, but I actually play those games! I don't just have time to write individual comments but I want to give feedback at the same time.
And basically Graphics and sound is what causes problems at game development.

I don't know why it is causing errors I am running the game at windows 7 aswell!

mattparks5855 says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 12:39am

Was a cool game, having games within games is always fun!

Xanjos says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 1:19am

Obviously rough in places but I do like the idea of multiple minigames in one single room.

Dec 20, 2016 @ 6:33am

@Xanjos and @mattoarks5855 Thank you for the nice feedback. Coments like those motivate me to keep on Programming!
You can go ahead and Check out my YouTube.

Dec 20, 2016 @ 8:49pm

i really want to try this game but the controls don't seem to be working. Not sure whats happening but i will try and problem solve it

Crafting4U says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 10:24pm

At first, the controls didn't work for me but it somehow worked after the 4th time running the game. :P Anyway, I like your take on the theme, it's just that I would like more to do than just pong. This was good overall for your first LD! :D

urfbound says ...
Dec 21, 2016 @ 2:49am

Hey impressive work on the engine and all in 48 hours! I've done that for past jams and I know it isn't easy. I really liked your interpretation of the theme, and I'm glad you're going to continue working on the game. I think that there's a lot of potential in the idea, and it could be a lot of fun with friends to have a virtual room to play games in. One potential bug I noticed is that the first time I ran the game keyboard input didn't work. Haven't had time to dig into your source too much but wanted to make you aware of it. Thanks for your review of my game and your submission! Will be interested to see where you go with it! Hope you enjoy the rest of your Ludum Dare!

mrwillowb says ...
Dec 22, 2016 @ 5:43am

A bit hard but cool.

Dec 22, 2016 @ 2:40pm

@mrwillowb , @urfbound , @Crafting4U and @TheScragglyMan:
I don't know why there sometimes is an error?!
But thank you all for the nice words! It keeps me motivated!

Dec 22, 2016 @ 11:03pm

Cool. Great that you were able to create multiple minigames over the course of 48 hours!

BoneDaddy says ...
Dec 23, 2016 @ 1:28am

Really wanted to try your game, but I couldn't get it to run. I've had this trouble with other jars (although some have worked), so maybe it's something on my end. Sorry. But good job completing the compo! That's an achievement in itself.

NoobDude29 says ...
Dec 25, 2016 @ 3:16pm

I wanted to try it but did not manage to move the character.

Dec 27, 2016 @ 10:26am

@NoobDude29
I don't know why there sometimes is an error?!

Green Soda says ...
Dec 29, 2016 @ 1:39am

This is actually great! for something created in 48 hours by a single dev...

It would be really cool if u continue updating this dude, good entry for first time:) I am seeing this game with better graphics, and it'll be really cool... Good luck man

Never stop developing!

DOXM says ...
Dec 29, 2016 @ 2:41pm

I took a look at your source code. For your first jam, great game. :)

banana4life says ...
Dec 30, 2016 @ 12:15am

Everyone starts small and for your first entry it's really cool! Don't stop practicing and i hope to see you on LD 38.

BoneDaddy says ...
Dec 31, 2016 @ 4:28am

Hey, I tried the .exe and it still won't work on my computer :( I'm going to try it again on a different one tomorrow.
