One piece in one room

by fufi - Jam Entry

The Crowd is gathered in your theater room. The people want your actors to make them cry and laugh, to tell them epic stories.
For each play, the audience will have precise demands. Meet these demands by influencing the interactions between the different characters in the play. You can influence the moving characters by dragging them with your mouse from lane to lane.
Before the play starts, you can see which kind of interactions the different characters will have. You can also see them by having your mouse over a character during the play.

Good luck, and have fun !

Commands:
- Use your mouse to drag a character from a lane to another
- Go for the interractions requested for you play (on the left of the screen) and avoid others
- Some interractions require to get specific item on the ground. Get them with the right character !

​What a fun game! The graphics are really nice, the music is fitting (and good!) and the crowd's reactions are great. Every play takes a bit of preparing in your mind, and after that,it's just chaos and hoping that the crowd likes it.

Pretty realistic, I suppose.

A little weird, and I couldn't figure out the third level but nice concept.

Very funny mechanic.

It becomes quite difficult really quickly to remember all the interactions needed, in order to please the audience.

Still it is fun.

I loved the idea of representing full stories in this simplified way... I just wish there was a way to keep track of the interactions with mouse click selection instead of mouse over, because they keep walking out of my cursor. Great game anyway!

one of the better entries I've played so far (in the 30's). Music+Gameplay fit wonderful. And even though it becomes a bit hectic at around lvl 4 its still enjoyable. Good job ;)

A nice little game! Would play this as a Steam game if it was sold there.

I liked the stage aesthetic, and this is extremely well polished for a gamejam entry

Cute and original concept. It got a bit too difficult for me in level three; could have used a more gradual buildup in complexity. Overall a nice submission.

Definitely an innovative concept! I would love to see this idea expanded upon!

I like the base idea. The gameplay is not really clear from the star. You have to figure out commands and the mechanics.
But after that is smooth and enjoyable!
well done

Wow such game :D
The gameplay is really good and funny. The idea of adapting a theater to the theme was really well applied.
Congrats!

Very innovative. Maybe the gameplay need some polish for the playability to be more fluid.

Enjoyed it! Very fun game mechanics! I agree with what others are saying about the complexity. A less steep curve would be better. Solid entry. :)

Really creative and unique concept and well executed! I think visually understanding what interactions will happen during the play is a bit confusing and it can move too fast for you to even react. That being said, I enjoyed it!
