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.

Danger: Mondays

by Gamepopper - Compo Entry

Some people just really hate Mondays, and the last place you want to be on Monday is on the toilet. This is one reason why...

Aim:

Try to stay on the porta-loo for as long as possible before you end up in a huge mess. Timing and balance is the key to staying on for as long as possible.


Controls (Keyboard):
R - Starts New Game
Left/Right - Lean inside portaloo.

Developed in less than 18 hours, got to experiment with the Nape Physics Engine.

That was actually pretty intense :P
Reminds me at the game where you need to release gas when a car passes by.

Haha 15 sec and there where s* all over. Really fun and funny game!

It feels like holding the guy steady there is too hard because a single touch always sends me flying.

Lol, its terrible(in good sense)! So simple but so fun.

Great! A truly original and horrifying situation. It's a great take on the theme too.

I guess scatological humor is ok if it's in lofi graphics form.

Yes! That's people have created Physics in games!
I can't play any other games, that's a masterpiece!!!
10/10 would poop on the stick again!

Game feels very simple, fun and really well done.
Nice how such simple gameplay can keep people like me entertained for quite some time.

That's the reason we don't put toilets on unstable structure.
I wonder what kind of asshole can throw rocks at you to see you fall down inside the cabin.

Lol, it's a s*** (in good sense)! Very fun, funny and addictive game. Nice work! I hope I never get through this! :P

Quite challenging, eh? :D And, for the time constraint you had, the result is really good! Whenever I experiment with physics, all I end up with is a square box. :P

The concept, besides challenging, is pretty fun also! There's no sound coming from the guy, but just by playing you can hear him go "oh, no no no no...*phew*...did someone just throw something at me?...DAMN!...".

I found balancing a bit hard in the beginning, but once you start playing, and taking lots of poop baths, you get used to it (and it's pretty quick to get used to it :P).

I wonder how this game would fit a mobile/tablet device, like using the accelerometer to balance and stuff. :P

Good work! Cheers! :D

This is indeed a pretty accurate monday morning simulator.

Nice game! Fun and challenging to master, well done!

Funny game, nicely made! 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/HllFgHUemY4

That gave me a good laugh. I like that you can see inside and outside of the porta-loo. It's really hard to keep the balance but satisfying when you're able to keep it for a longer period. Great job!

Surprisingly harder than it looks (probably because of the random lag spikes I get sometimes) but it's a fun game and an absolutely hilarious take on the theme. Also whoever is throwing stones at the toilet is a complete ******** :V

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:36pm

Very silly put fun game ;) I'm not really good at it though ^^'

Very mean placement of a porter potty.
(Do you know there is a short story by stephen king about beeing trapped in one? - felt reminded of that.)

HAHA OMG, I couldn't stop laughing. Great entry :)
Only the audio was a bit annoying.

Poop particles are pretty next gen yo. I've made more indepth comments in this video. https://youtu.be/GvnbFVF6-m4

I think the controls are way too sensitive

I got a good laugh out of this one. Thank you. Not much room for improvement. I love the look of terror in the guy's face, like he knows he can't avoid it forever.

The hazards really shake up the gameplay. Maybe the keyboard is a bit too sensitive? I don't know if you're detecting continuous pressings or not, but when I hold the key for more than just a tap, I always seem to go overboard. Might be me tho.

It was fun!

Just when I thought that Goat Simulator, Rock Simulator and Goat Simulator were all I needed in my life

I found Danger: Mondays, a supreme Jackass Simulator.
