Robovac Simulator 2k16

by markten - Jam Entry

You are a robotic vacuum. Your job is to clean the room. The faster you clean the better your score. You must start and end on your base station. Avoid making "art".

Note that for the linux release, you will need to have packages for SDL2, SDL2_image, SDL2_ttf, and SDL2_mixer installed.

Wish I would turn instantly instead of rotating, it turned out surprisingly moody, graphics didn't feel well though.

I cleaned everything, but at the same time, the poop was everywhere in the room.. Good job!

Hmm...not too long game and no story sadly. Maybe stick to one artstyle next time. But heeey...I was able to draw a penis on my own in this game. Thx for the poop

First try I thought it was a more of a draw with a turd simulator but after trying again and going full-screen I could see clearer that you actually could just clean the room :) , anyways, kudos for humor.

It gives me an error while trying to run on Linux:
Linux_Binary/Ludum_Dare_37: error while loading shared libraries:

I think you might want to give -static flag for your compiler or package SDL2 with Linux download

@edve98 SDL2 recommends against static compilation and does not provide runtime libs for Linux. It recommends that users acquire the libs from their package manager. I may try to compile the libs myself in order to include them in the release at some point.

I see... Although this could get a bit painful if different distros started offering different versions of SDL2. I guess I might have to install it sooner or later to play other LD games anyway. But for now if you want to try to package SDL2 yourself I could test that :)

It is the poop that makes this entry a complete package.
