Pimp My Room

by Stylo21 - Jam Entry

Andrew James Davidson is a curious Belgian seven-year-old boy who has found a strange meteorite endowed with life in the forest while he was looking for mushrooms. The mighty Meteor has read Andrew's mind to know what his material desires are. Since it is a magical meteor it can give Andrew money and in this way Andrew will feed the meteor to get everything he has always wanted to have.

Cool clicker with a weird, interesting background story!
Accidentely left the tab open while playing some other games and I had instantly all upgrades :D
Was fun! Would have wished for an endgame maybe, although such type of games maybe don't need it.
Also the music is really fun! :)

Interesting. It seems to be too easy though, maybe balance it a bit so you spend more time clicking to get money instead of just clicking on the upgrades (money comes in way too fast even at the start of the game).

very good game and very well polished, maybe a little simple but I've certainly played simpler. It's been a while since I've enjoyed a clicker like this one.

Balance is a little off, but the background story is so weird and fits the looks so much it's not that bad.

The sounds add to the surreal experience.

Pretty cool, great presentation, music, but ultimately I don't feel invested in anything I click, I don't see the clicks influencing something, anything. For example the upgrades is a whole panel that covers up the room, so when you click it to upgrade, instead of SEEING the upgrade, you close the window and still have no idea what you did.

So it just feels like I'm literally just clicking for no reason. I think you need some reason for the players to care about the thing they're doing. Candyland and Dark Room did very well there.

@Tuism You are totally right, putting the upgrade menu on another tab that doesn't block your view and adding feedback after each purchase should do the trick easily.

Thanks for playing and leaving feedback. c:

I don't like clickers as genre, but story about weird meteorites rocks! :)

Well that was super addictive. I must pimp my room!

Nice take on the theme. Love the pixel art and storyline.

As a huge fan of clickers I was hoping to find a game just like this! I'm glad to say I had a lot of fun playing it and getting all the different upgrades. The visuals are good, I only wish the bed wasn't behind the huge rock haha. Anyways good job with the game guys!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 10:15am

Nice clicker! i like the idea

Great music and nice graphics. I got my room fairly pimped but my will to click died. Pretty fun until then though!

Music and sound effects are very exhilarating.
The game mechanic is solid and responsive.
However I did not figure out the deeper goal of the whole thing.
But it was fun, for a while :-)

This one reminds me of the movie Joe Dirt for some reason. No waiting around in this game which is good for jam games. Fun game!

If only it was this easy to get money in real life! :D

I never really had to click anything. I think if there was something more interesting happening for upgrades that it would be more incentive to keep going.

Decently polished and not as grindy as cookie clickers usually are.

Give my regards to whoever did the sound design for this, hilarious. Agree on the upgrades being blocked by the panel issue. I still noticed things upgrading and that's what kept me going.

A clicker game is a good way to work with the theme. It took me a while to get what the upgrade were doing, because there don't seem to be a grphic change with smoe of them. I would like to se through the upgrade panel to see what I am doing. Also, it would be nice if those upgrade gave you something more to do, or a new ability in the game. Still, you're on the right path. Music was nice by the way!

Enjoyed the background music and the progression of the art. It would have been interesting to possibly add another little game mechanic to make it a bit more unique. Overall nice work.

I don't like clickers, but this game pulled some strings. I need to know how does Carpet Lv.50 looks like :) Thanks, nice pixel graphics and music.

I never played a game like this, it seems pretty polished and definitely new to me :)

Fun game, but fairly standard in terms of mechanics. The graphics were just ok, and the music and sound effects were a little unusual. I still had fun playing it though!

Dec 20, 2016 @ 2:16am

Cool. I clicked on things. The room got pimped!

Very fun! Loved the music and the audio. As a stats nerd I would like to see what all my clicky upgrades were producing so I could min/max xD

It's a clicker, you can't go wrong with this gameplay ;)
Nice mood, I liked the title and the music.

Audio seemed uh, odd. Not a lot of bling for more my room. Pretty easy game.
