The Odd Inn

by Gabriel Bucsan - Jam Entry

Take care of a medieval inn runned by goblins! Make sure the vikings are happy and filled with their favorite drinks. Be careful with your service, delivering the wrong beverage may get the vikings angry, causing you to lose a costumer. Ten angry costumers will make you lose the game. Good luck!

For those having problems delivering drinks with the left goblin make sure to be touching the client AND press the key E for the right slot and Q for the left one. Enjoy the game!

Really impressive given the time frame! I really liked the graphics, and the ambient noise was really good.

Might want to include a way to quit the game from within the game (I had to alt+f4 to close it), but that's my only gripe. :) Fun game!

For all of you guys that can't serve the drinks with the left goblin, are you using the keys Q and E?

Cool game! Please, think about us Europeans, and bind the WASD keys with arrow keys as well next time ^^ I like the fact that you have to synchronize two different players. And I'm really impressed by those 3D animations!

Really liked the atmosphere in this game! The visuals (especially the lighting) and audio were fantastic and little details (like viking emojis and how the customers would get up and dance after a while) added a humorous touch (:

My main issue was that the wasn't a way to put down a drink once you've picked it up. Sometimes I would pick up a drink for a customer only for them to get angry and leave right at that moment, with no other customers ordering a drink of that color. This meant I had to either give an incorrect drink to a customer so I could complete other orders or just stand around until somebody wanted that particular color of drink, which wasted time. Despite this, I still thought it was a great game overall though!

I also had the issue where I couldn't serve the vikings even when touching them and pressing Q or E. The atmosphere was great! The dancing goblins were a nice touch. I really liked the mechanic of controlling two characters at once!

using Q/E but I couldn't serve the drinks. It's a great looking entry though!

Wow! Pretty good. Maybe the graphics can be improved, but is still a good game

Interesting idea! Is there a way to dump a drink if you've made it by accident? I did that at one point and had to play with one slot full for a while.

Otherwise, looks great, good effort on the sound as well.

Well done! Thanks for sharing!

The difficulty curve is to slow. I got bored and quit because it wasn't challenging enough.

The game isn't self-explanatory - needed to read instruction 3 times to serve drinks. Left goblin doesn't work well. I stand around customers pushing Q and E like a mad men hoping that this spot might be the one where customer might take the drink.

Good mood. Liked the dancing goblins, drunk vikings walking animation and sounds of inn talking. Probablby could have been made even better but it's above average. (4/5)

Just wondering. If left goblins take 2 bad drinks is it possible to remove/replace them?

Dec 14, 2016 @ 10:27pm

Currently that option is not avaiable. We are considering to keep developing this game. If so, you should see that and many more coming to the game. Thanks so much for playing and sharing you opinions.

Great game, there is a slight issue with different screen sizes, though. I had it set to windowed at first and then it was impossible to see the glasses at the left hand side.

Nice game. I like the pun with odd Inn, Odin. The Only thing is often the detection of the proximity of the customer to serve doesn't works.

I must say that I loved it! The art, the sound and the game mechanics, really good!

A good point to fix would be de delivery sistem, some times it failed.
Also the beginning was really slow. Apart from this, I could see myself playing for some time at this little game.

Good job!

Very nice. Love the theme, visuals, and music.

I really enjoyed it, the two slots were a bit confusing for me and I think the delivering drinks seems a bit unreliable. I like ambient chatter. Overall I thought it was great, fun but hard. Scored 81 in the end.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:55pm

Overall great game! We made something similar where you have to control two characters at once. I really enjoyed this. I got to 82 before I failed. It starts getting really difficult when the bar gets flooded with patrons. I wish I could put a drink down. There were a few times I was carrying a drink, the patron who wanted it would leave and then I would be stuck serving only one person at a time because nobody wanted the drink I had in my inventory. It would be cool if I could put the drink back down on an empty spot of the bar. Anywhoo, GREAT GAME!

I like that game, it's was fun to multi task with the keyboard and my mouse, but one thing annoyed me unfortunately. The fact that it's difficult to serve somebody, you should may be just program that if you have the right beer and you walk on the right guy that's ok! it would be cool as well. thanks for sharing that interesting game anyway sir

I had a really good time playing this. It was pretty fun and engaging. I thought the setting was pretty well communicated through the music and the graphics. I also noticed the twerking dancers on the stage, nice touch!
