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.

The Wiggle Room

by panurge - Compo Entry

Models with chainsaws. I'm not really sure why but once I'd started I had to stick with it...

Use the mouse to select options and the left and right arrow keys to direct your chainsaw during gameplay. You can choose the angle at which you bounce away from walls by angling your chainsaw when you collide with them.

The lengthy dark screen at the start has audio playing so make sure your sound is on if you can. :)

Could be a fun game for couch multiplayer. :) The semifinal round dragged on a bit for me because the barriers in the middle made it hard for us to get close to each other.

Nice character sprites, cruel but pretty fun concept.
The dark screen at the beginning was a bit confusing.
Good job!

There's a cool mechanic behind this one. It took me a while to find out what makes you boost: BLOOOD! Game is pretty simple, but works well. You want to win, then to win the semifinals, then the finale. And the victory screen is absolutely perfect :D

Not my type of humour, I'm afraid, so I won't pretend I don't find it rather distasteful, but...

Technically and mechanically complete game with simple but solid controllers (tho I must admit I had to play more than once until I actually understood what I was doing because I thought the arrows were going to control the movements of the character and I didn't realise immediately what I was actually doing by pressing them, so I was just confused as to why the character wasn't going where I was pressing, heh...) and everything in place, like audio and graphics.

Didn't find any bugs either, which is actually almost a first for this LD so far, heh. Well done on that!

It is very funny!!! As Meg says, the game ask for multiplayer mode :P Very original idea, and very good random lore :P

One of the most violent games with which I have ever play :)
Really well done with simple mechanics, but it works well. The pixel art is clever and clean. I finished it ++

This game was too much fun! I don't know why mixing models and chainsaws makes any sense, but it worked! I loved the little chainsaw noises and how you have multiple characters with their own unique descriptions. I played this many times and I greatly enjoyed it!

certainly more fun than a knife fight.

very nice, as others said this could make a good couch multiplayer or even a nice minigame in either a collection of games or a larger game.

It's really fun! But maybe a bit too easy : I won everything on my first try! I wonder how fun it could be in multiplayer. Probably a lot!

Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:40pm

Funny game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/5DzNI6J29PY

Who doesn't like a fun chainsaw massacre - nice :)

Dec 17, 2016 @ 12:35am

Haha awesome compo entry there. Was a real pleasure to play through.

Intreresting gameplay! I found it a little hard to tell my character apart in the bunch. I like the idea and the humor.

This game is obviously a post-modernistic deconstruction of how establishment controlled mainstream media influences human integrity in order to maintain the power balance of the contemporary cultural hegemony.

(The music is also very catchy)

Perfect job!
This game is my absolute favourite in humor and won my special awards in the categories: Best vocal entry speach and best pixel art particle and gore effects.

Nice game, also surprisingly fun to play. I enjoyed playing it very much. The only criticism I have is that the graphics are a bit lacking.

I really liked your sense of humor. Contestants' descriptions and ending screen text were great. Game would be also fun in some kind of multiplayer mode. Fun game.

Super funny! I loved the intro! hahaha
Nice job as always!
I just wish for a little more control.

Very funny. I found the controls a little limiting, but I didn't mind because it was silly. Sometimes you bounced around for a long time before coming into range. Fun concept, and I like the "scout for talent" with all the descriptions. Nice work!

Hyper-funny game!! Pretty hard to beat though. Anyway, after a bunch of tries I managed to win the Final :P I had a great time!

Dec 23, 2016 @ 9:51pm

Funny little game. I managed to complete it without dying once :D Well done!

What a funny thing! Never had that much fun with a chainsaw before :)

I got to the end! LOL. Great Work. Needs to be multiplayer... XD

Nice game, very fun! Cool graphics too. Very funny as well!

Dec 30, 2016 @ 6:40pm

Fun game once you get the hang of it. I liked the graphics.

Fun entry as usual and with a great sense of humour in the writing and audio. Enjoyed the character descriptions and the simple gameplay controls
