One Room Left

by nycolas - Compo Entry

The end of the world is coming. But only one room is left in the last convoy wich lead to the last safe place in the world.

Choose which people will be before which one. Each character has its own strengh and weakness. Put them in a specific order to defeat the obstacles and see what happen.

If more than one people are saved, you loose.
If no people are saved, you loose.
Sometimes sacrifice is necessary...

Hahaha the music definitely didn't fit with the apocalyptic theme but I enjoyed it anyway. Interesting puzzles. Reminds me of Lemmings.

Hey thanks for your feedback. Well for the music I am not good enough to match the theme, so I tried something... And something came :D. Thanks a lot btw!

The idea is very pleased!

This is a great puzzler! I went through all levels (the length is ideal).

Perhaps the music doesn't fit, but I enjoyed it. But it starts again and overlaps with the previous loop if you finish the gaem.

10/10 theme interpretation.

I cleared all the stages! I agree with the MrEvilGuy. The music doesn't fit the game, but it was nice. I like the unexpected use of the theme. Overall nicely done.

Interesting little puzzle game. Took me a moment to figure out exactly how it worked, but it's a really unique idea. Nice work!

One of the most original games I've come across on this Ludum Dare! The mechanics were simple but I hadn't sees them anywhere else before. The art is pretty cool too.

I loved how you used the theme as "One Room Left" - clever
The music was a funny touch- a nice happy tune, while you try to decide who gets to live and who has to die to help them get there. Tricky puzzles- level 5 had me stumped for a while. This could be a lot more fun with animations and sound- But understandably omitted for the jam-
Overall a very strong entry- nice work.

The idea was good, it is a nice puzzle game with an interesting way to interpret the theme :D

On my computer, the window of the game did not fit really well to my screen and there was a blue line on the right of the screen instead of the background.

Not the most common use of the word "room" but it totally works. It's a neat little Stone-Paper-Scissors type of puzzle; I like it a lot.
It's a bit dark to let someone die because there isn't enough space in the car, but if it's really certain that the car will crash, it's totally fine if you're an utilitarian.

Good Job!

...why would you distribute in a rar? :/

Really unique idea, the music didn't fit but I really enjoyed the game.

One small thing a lot of people don't use the .Rar so I'd recommend making it a .Zip to avoid people not playing your game :) I installed a program to play it which was fine but a lot of people might not be bothered.

Great job!

Nice idea! one room doesn't have to be literally one room it could be on space left.

Thanks a lot for your comments and feedbacks!
Sorry for the .rar, I will correct it for the next LD.

This game is pretty solid. I also loved the music. My only problem is that it didnt fit to my screen very well. Good Job.

I like the music, it didn't really fit to my screen and i couldn't see at first the 'launch' button, so it took me a minute to understand what to do
Nice idea ^_^

Good and interesting puzzles. The music was good, though it didn't match the theme very well. Well done!

Really liked yout take on the theme! I had just one problem with the resolution. By default it was a giant screen that didn't fit my monitor D:

Really interesting concept, simple but still intricate. The gameplay is definately unique.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 7:24pm

Original idea :) I like the "moral dilema" aspect of the concept. The game is well developed and the puzzles are fun to solve, found it a little confusing at start. I also liked the "workaround" the theme XD I guess it's a different way of seing it!

Great take on the theme! I really enjoyed solving the puzzles. The difficulty ramp was pretty well done. Keep up the good work!

(Comment didn't seem to post, sorry if this is double post)
Hey,this is a fun little puzzle game. Only real issue I had with it was the GUI didn't scale to fit the window so some elements were mis-aligned/partially off screen.

It's quite funny and a good interpretation of the theme. It could do with some more levels, and I suspect you could easily generate them randomly.

With a bit of polish and more content, this could easily be a marketable browser/mobile game :)

I did a gameplay video if you wanna check that out:

Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Dec 25, 2016 @ 3:08am

Good puzzles of the right length, very innovative. Great use of the theme. Even randomly choosing the sequence is fun just to 'try it out'.

Would like to have some death animation to fit the apocalyptic theme and emphasis on the 'sacrifice' part.
