Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

EDIT : English version available now (google translate level, sorry). Hope it's still understandable!

My take on the theme.
Not a real game though, more like an casual story (expect lots of text) about a girl trapped between four walls.

No sounds too, I didn't have time.
I just wanted to take on the challenge for fun.

Controls :
- Mouse click only

Game made with Cocos2d-X.
Story, code and art by me.

C'est tout mignon, c'est prenant, on en veut plus !
Une suite est-elle envisageable ?

First game I've seen made with cocos2d-x, nice :)

"A good night for a better assimilation"...

Is this what the inside of the Borg collective mind looks like? :P

As a visual novel fan, I enjoyed this one. The art is great, both the pixel art (love how the room "transforms" into a library) and the character portrait. Enjoyed all the amount of text, it's necessary on these type of games. Translation was surprisingly good, actually I read afterwards that is was automated... Too bad you couldn't manage to get some music in it, but overall I enjoyed the experience. Theme is really fitting for "one room" challenge. Congratulations!

Very, very nice narrative. And easy to read, good for someone who does not speak english fluently, like me. The aesthetic is simple but catchy

oh! Nice! And it's also online! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Looks promising, but I encountered a bug. After choosing library, or video there is no more text, or option to do anything. It exists in both of language options.

Wow ! That was greater than I thought !
Love the Room-transition effect !
I really like the fact that you can hide away from the probleme.

The lack of sound design is what's preventing to be great.

But I had fun ! It was warm and fuzzy at the beginning nd suddenly dark an cold. Love it :D

Great graphics, and take on the theme. I wish you had added just a little bit more of story. Had a short beginning and a ending I think that could give a lot to the game.

The story was a little hard to follow (possibly because of the English version's translation), but it got pretty interesting and mysterious towards the end. All of the artwork was very well done too, my only recommendation being to have a little more variety and things to accomplish gameplay-wise. But as it stands, it's probably my favorite story-heavy entry I've played.
