Really, really interesting game! The "loop" system in which you have to keep taking things away from John works perfectly.

Interesting game mechanic! I was a bit confused at first, but once I read the description and played some more I got it. Well done!

I really like the different camera angles, I think it is a really smart use of the room space. The ending is a bit abrupt and doesn't exactly fit the tone of the game. I mean him not killing himself wouldn't end with him being happy haha. Anyways good work on the game!

TitoMakaniJr: He is attention wh-re. So, He happy because you pay attention to him. ;)

It was a bit hard to tell what each interactions did, but I made him not die after a second play through. I'm not sure what I did right though.

LOVE the concept! The game was a little simplistic, but overall compelling.

Haha nice work. First time there was a bloody dead voxel man on the floor. I love this idea of keeping stuff away from this poor depressed man I think it was really innovative though very short.

Took a bit to figure out what was going on, but finished with him alive non the less. Nice job.

Loved te idea, I want to play more. Maybe with different types of situations to interact ? (avoiding suicide, avoiding an accident, a murder, etc)

Great job!!

Interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
