Rudum Bare

by Alex Rose - Jam Entry

PRE L;DR : TALK TO PEOPLE, CLICK ON OPTIONS, MAKE SURE NO ONE VOTES ONE ROOM.

Rudum Bare is a game in which you have to change the course of history and change the theme from One Room to something actually good.

It's pronouned Baray.

Infiltrate the elusive Royal Academy of Mediocre Games and convince people to vote for something that isn't One Room.

This would have been Rude Bear 14 (Rude Bear RPG 2) but the theme killed off that idea, then I got wasted all weekend at Insomnia so I had to rush together a game from 1pm on Monday onwards in between buying some clothes and sorting out some contract stuff.

So.. this isn't going to be a great entry roflmao.

I will play later but I too want to say the theme sucked donkey dick and I also got drunk in response.

Some of the people in the room were so accurate. Like the clone game person. I also didnt like the theme that much, certainly didnt vote for it :D, shit happens tho.

Haha, I know one guy who is really embittered ! But I feel you, the theme doesn't allow much creativity and I can relate a lot to the portrait depicted.

Anyway, I had a surprising good time playing your game, eventhough my eyes hurt a little.

RB/5 in all categories!

Theme in particular! You did great in using the theme to complain about it! I also didn't like it, and I've seen few games that have actually benefited from the theme. Most games could had been made for any other theme...

Seriously, thank you for being vocal about the theme. :)

loooooooooool, what? Dat cam zoom. Also, accurate stereotypes. Also, wish the thing didn't just stop when seeing someone's vote. I guess that's where the jam ended tho :p

Uhhh, you can click the options, you have to convince them of what to do, it's a complete game.

5/5 on humour purely for those meta-references and those developer stereotypes were just too real. I actually liked the whole mechanic of being in one room (ironically) and basically trying to convince people to vote for something else other than "One Room".

I'm that one dude who always has something go wrong every LD... (didn't see anyone like me :P)
Also, I wouldn't be surprised if this game accurately represented what people were thinking about in the theme voting. :/
(Isolation was my favorite)
Anyway, I thought the game was really funny! Good Job!

Well, I can definitely say that I have no idea what I was getting into. It was certainly an unexplainable experience. At least the dialogue was amusing.

Come on, the SceneManager isn't so difficult to use. :D

Played again -- Didn't realise you can click. Maybe shoulda told me to like click or whatever instead. :p

It took a couple of rounds but I finally voted out one-room. I laughed at a couple of the jokes, also I like the subtle marketing of your rude bear game. Sneaky. Anyway, cool game.

Shh don't tell anyone but when I don't like the theme I just make whatever I want anyway. Chances are it's at least vaguely relevant!

I've interacted with everybody, but it says I need to collect more votes... I'm not entirely sure what to do.

Otherwise, I love all the meta in this game. It's quite funny.

The camera movement kind of makes my head hurt.

There's 16 people you have to interact with including Mike.

Funny entry and the music was great too :)

I like the story and humor, but the gameplay gets too slow for my taste. It would be nice if we could click to close the messages faster/instantaneously.

Haha, love the game. Hillarious characters, great music, and fantastic backstory! I especially loved PoV!
