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.

Room at Night

by JulianMH - Compo Entry

This ludum dare I could not figure out a good gameplay fitting for the theme so I went with a simple point and click game.
I got a bit lost in making art, sound & music for the game so it ended up quite short.
It is my first 4th ludum dare game and the first one with music and recorded sound effects. I am quite happy how the audio part of the game ended up.

Controls:
Mouse & Keyboard
F2 to toggle background music

This Windows (XNA) version is the original compo version of the game. It requires XNA 4.0 Redistributable to be installed.

The other versions were ported after the end of the compo but are otherwise unchanged. The linux version is untested and will most likely not work. Feel free to try anyway.

Tools used:
- Visual Studio
- C# / XNA
- FNA for Cross Platform Compatibility
- GarageBand for iPhone & Speech Recorder for iPhone
- Audacity
- GIMP
- PowerPoint (Could probably have made the entire game in PowerPoint because there is so little gameplay...)

I managed to brute force through the first two security questions for ai see ku, but then I had to actually play the game :p Cool little adventure, very convenient art style.

Nice game. I really loved it. It was relaxing some sort. I did managed to get the best friend number. Love the artwork and the audio went nice with it. The outside view was so relaxing to look at. Overall nice game to play. Keep it up!

Linux user here. Had a crash at the startup.
Here's the first part of the error message:

OpenAL not found! Need FNA.dll.config?
[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.DllNotFoundException: soft_oal.dll

Lovely game. The aesthetic was really nice. I'm not sure if happiness affected the score or unlocked choices you otherwise didn't have. Knowing that would've been nice. The ending also felt a bit abrupt, which felt extra bitter because of the incredible buildup the mood was able to do. One of my favorite entries.
