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.

use your IMAGINATION, quick!!!!

by sepharoth213 - Compo Entry

Being stuck in a room is boring. Use your imagination to have some fun! Don't let too much furniture get past you or else you'll get bored again. Clear furniture perfectly to build up your combo and get big points.
Some furniture are infused with imagination and will help you clear the screen, watch out for their effects!

Controls: click to (re)start, move your mouse to aim the furniture-clearing laser. Works on mobile!
If the game is confusing (it is visually extremely noisy), think of it as Fruit Ninja with furniture. Unfortunately though, you can't actually swipe on mobile...

Warning: this game loads a bunch of meshes and proceeds to draw quite a few of them onto a screen. Stuff might be invisible for a bit as meshes load.
If you have, say, a chromebook, you might not want to try this. YMMV.

A few days ago I set up my Oculus Touch controllers for the first time, and I wanted to try to use Medium sculpts in the Ludum Dare. VR games are, however, a fantastic distraction, and combined with one seriously show-stopping bug made me give up halfway through. I realized late in the day today that giving up was in poor spirits for Ludum Dare, so in the last couple hours I took what I had and turned it into something mostly complete. (the bug is still there, objects get randomly left behind in the scene. sorry!)
My best score is 6172, see if you can beat it!

Have fun, and thanks for playing!

Great job on making this game! It's pretty addicting, though I'm not good enough to get past the mid-200's :(

Well, this was confusing.

Unfortunately I found the gameplay a bit confusing, didn't quite work out what I was trying to achieve. Seems cool though.

1051! Great idea for the theme!

Interesting entry. The fact that the graphics took a while to load up meant my first few tries were incredibly confusing. Not that it got any less confusing when stuff started flying around the screen! Still, it wasn't a bad game at all!

This was very trippy, I like that!
The photo background with weird 3D models flying around created a weird atmosphere.

Got bored quickly though, but that's maybe just me ;)

Well done!

Really nice short time-waster that is much too easy to get into a "one more try to beat my high score" loop. I had a hard time understanding which furniture would have the special powers because it was too hectic to really dwell on a single object too long, but that made them more of nice surprise which was fine. The "music" is hilarious.

I tried it, and then I tried it again. Read the instructions. Tried it again. It kept telling me I got bored so I stopped =) Not quite sure I got it, maybe because I haven't played fruit ninja. Fun twist with the music :) I have to hand it to you that you stuck to the theme very well though.

Hah, I'm not sure that I did it correct but, it was cool anyway x)
The art style is a bit weird for me. But overall is a good compo submission!

Crazy game :)
I hope that no one has that type of imagination when sitting in an empty room. Maybe cats though ;)
Yeah, a bit confusing to me. Hard to tell if some of the stuff happening were bugs or just as designed.

It just gets crazy on the higher numbers!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:34pm

Couldn't really tell what was happening, but it looks like it works :)

1122. I don't know how you could reach 6172...
The game is weird, I don't know what to think.
Graphics are weird but why not. Audio is cool but not sure it feets with this game. Gameplay is fun, but not very deep (or I miss something?)...

Realistic graphics :). I wouldn't want to be in that room with all that furniture flying. Congratulations on finishing the game.
