NEET simulator

by griseouslight - Compo Entry

NEET Simulator! It's a "totally realistic" experience of someone going through the harsh effort of doing mostly nothing every day. In NEET simulator, you can experience some of these things such as:

1. Playing Video Games
2. Eating Pizza
3. Not dying (sometimes)
All at once!

Feed the player character pizza with the mouse, and play the video game with the keyboard.

Created with LOVE2D. (The source code link works the same as a ZIP file)

Update 1: Fixed Windows download (whoops...)
Update 2: Fixed Windows download again
Build 2: Fixed a few bugs with the end screen

More info:
Tools used:
Graphics: Graphics Gale
SFX: sfxr
BGM: FL Studio (Fun fact: The music was used using 3 noises from a CRT! Turning it on, tapping on the screen, and clicking the remote!)
Engine: LÖVE2D
Pizza: Pizza

Install LOVE2D engine on your device and run the .love file if you wish to run it on something other than Windows

Simple, but nice way to actually make a little experience based on "One Room".

Now I want some pizza.

I like the multiple-tasking in this, which makes it interesting and challenging.

Oh man, I am terrible at multitasking, but I löve this entry! The theme is spot on, a very fun take on it. A very humorous take on a gamers life :D

Thank god that you can not die from being bad at games in real life, I would not have been around for long, at least not if games involved this much multitasking :D

Great entry, very well done!!!

I know you've heard it all before, but I still love the graphics.

But for an honest review, The game is fantastic, and a hilarious take on the theme. The song is actually pretty nice as well, and the game is just really fun to play.

I'm glad you kept the motivation to make it.

Pretty cool concept, but wish there was a little more time to react to the game.

Wow, I didn't though I would be that terrible at multitasking... My best score was 3...
But it was fun :p.

The entry was quite interesting and new. I never played a game like this before. It really needs more polish. I would suggest to make the videogame screen bigger and keep the pixel aspect ratio at same proportions, that would give the game a better look. Overall, it has potential.

Super good ! It's really experimental and smart ! It really explores the notion of focus in the player. Great job, even if it is super hard, lol !

This is the third multi-tasking game under same premise so I might be a little bitter going in. (Keep gamer alive in a room) [IG/IRL]

Interesting and funny take on the theme.
The multitasking is challenging, the timing is tight but it's doable.

The game art is simple but nice and the layout is pretty well thought.

The music goes well with the atmosphere.
A button to mute / decrease the volume would be nice, though.^^

Challenging 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/xG2aiO_VsBw
