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

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

Chamber Talk

by invi - Jam Entry

A hero finds himself utterly outmatched against a mighty demon. Could there be another way to victory?

There are two endings to the story. Let us know your number of deaths in the comments below.

Game Engine: Twine
Graphics: Aseprite

It's our first time doing a narrative game. Telling stories is a tough craft and it's a skill we're not too good at, but desperately need to grow. So we figured why not challenge ourselves to weave a simple tale during the LD? Enjoy! :)

Well. That was a wild ride. Died 12 times on the first ending, 3 on the second. The humor is not bad~

That was fun. Awesome writing. Laughed my ass off a few times. Got killed 14 times though, before I got to the ending.

I loved the art and all the color selections and I guess I also like text based games. Good luck with that. You can extend this for larger aims.

Funny little game. Didn't make it though though. I ended up getting stuck trying random answers since I wasn't clear which path was the right one. Love the graphics. The writing is not all that bad.

That will not look good on my resume... But I managed to slay the demon with only 2 deaths!

It was quite funny, thanks a lot for the game!

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 ;)

This was a pretty great entry! Took me 11 deaths to get both endings. The artwork (although there wasn't much of it) was really nice, and the jokes were mostly funny.

The connection to the theme is fairly loose, and I would've loved if there was a bit of audio though; just a simple background track and a nice smashing sound when you lose would really punch this up a bit in my opinion!

Great entry! I had a lot of fun.
The art is great and the gameplay smooth and intuitive.
Well done.
I'll now go out with malebros, he's funny.

Well that was a funny narrative. The plot twist with the second demon was wonderfull. Great work dudes. :D
It took me 13 deaths to win your game. Was harder than a Dark Souls game. xD
But sounds would be nice.

Fun story, well written dialogue and excellent pixel art! Given you wrote this in HTML it was odd to have to download it. I would recommend hosting on itch.io or something so you can embed in this page :) otherwise great work!

Love, the art style, the humor and the story, very well done!
