Room King

by Mnemusyne - Jam Entry


Two pieces of furniture fight for the best place in the room: the crown carpet.


A friend. This is a local multiplayer game.


Player 1 - WASD;
Player 2 - Arrow keys.


Find the crown carpet before your friend does! Pick up power-ups to gain advantages. These are:

FAST: Increases your speed.
SLOWED: Reduces friend's speed.
CONFUSED: Reverses friend's controls.
SWAP: Swaps both players.

the controll is a little bit confused. I didn't know that the first scene was an opening scene, or a gamescene. When I press the right or left, the player is mirrored horizontaly.

Overall: this is a cute game, but the controll system is not so good. Nice job. :)

PS: Sry for my poor english (:

this is cute, great job! it's interesting how you sometimes can't see the goal until you search for it.

This was really fun! I like the animation when the furniture crash into each other. Feels very visceral.

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 ;)

Nice use of the theme and awesome art. The controls are a bit "sloppy" (I don't know the right word), but it's a solid entry. Nice job, guys!

I loved, loved the idea! Very polish!
I'm not sure why, but when both player move diagonal sometimes it doesn't work and one or both of them are stuck until they make another move.
Some very minor suggestions would be to change the drawer's colour, gets a little hard to find when it's zoom out, maybe white or orange and the music while it does fit a "living room place" feels too calm for a fight for the king of the room!
Other than that, move the players around feels very nice and appropriate, the explanation of the rules were well done and the faces on everything were a cool touch, wouldn't be the same without it. Great job! :D

All-around awesome! Congrats on the amazing job :D

Dec 21, 2016 @ 5:13pm

great entry. Im a fan that the controls are a bit silly. one issue I had though was because you randomize the placement of the carpet, I had a couple of times where it spawned directly underneath a player, for an instant win of that round... that's not a fun thing.

Once you get the hang of the controls, this game is a lot of fun. The opening scene was a tad bit confusing, wasn't sure if the game started already or it was just instructions. The game was a LOT of fun, and I could see it being more fun with additional players (possibly ai?)

This art is so cute and well done! The innovation of this game is a good point XD (a fight of two furniture, lol) Gameplay is a bit confusing but i got it when I played for a while. Nice feature doing it multiplayer in 72h! Amazing job guys :)
