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.

Cold Day in the Office

by ceosol - Compo Entry

Cough and Sneeze on your coworkers. Let's see how management does when all of their employees are sick.

There is no winning or losing. I was just having some fun making this :)

This is giving me flashbacks to working in a cube farm... I don't miss those days.

If you made the coworkers go on to infect eachother, this could be an epidemiology simulator. :)

interesting art style. Not much substance to the game, though, needs to have some sort of specific goal or challenge. Nice work!

Thanks for the comments. Like I said, I decided to just have some fun instead of making winning and losing conditions. If that kills my scores, then so be it :)

The isometric aspects of the game were really interesting, it would be more fun if you have the game a goal though. Good entry.

Just like in my day-job =) Infected about 10 people when testing the game - as you said, no winning/losing or objective to try to beat which probably limits the time you spend playing the game a fair amount.

With ludum dare, nobody "plays the game a fair amount" anyway. You are lucky to get 1 minute of anybody's time :)

That man should really be at home! I enjoyed be an inconsiderate virus spreader, but only wish there some sort of goal, or even just a counter of how many people I have infected, all because I was a jerk. The art style was nice, nice work!

So true, it hurts! Hard to navigate, but who cares, just make'em suffer! Loved the music.

Disgusting and seasonably appropriate.

This takes the soul-crushing experience of working in a cubicle and spreads it to others. Misery for all! Good idea, would love to see it developed further. :)

The game is unique definitely. I found it difficult to control and it would have been nice to have a score to look out. If you then had a lose state it would be so much more entertaining to control. Overall well done.

The concept is fun, but the carpet in the office is awful!
Also, collides was quite confusing for me. I think it would be cool to add some interactions with other employees.

You could at least work a little bit on that collision detection:P

This my nightmare came true, feels nice to get some revenge. I really like the animation on the main character

Nice, I like the aesthetic - it's a bit gross but in a good way, that fits the theme of the game. Obviously some more gameplay would add to the experience, but still entertaining for what it is!
