[PPP] - Pictorial Packing Passion

Pictorial Packing Passion [PPP]

Ah, it's that time of the year again: Christmas time!
And people are driven by love and compassion and the desire to show others this love by
giving them present. Well thought-out presents that show that they care about their loved ones.
But of course not enough to leave the comfort of their home and go buy those themselves!
I mean you gotta draw the line somewhere, right?
Fortunately there are companies that take care of that pesky "getting off your ass and leaving your house" problem.
One of them is GNOME-AZON! (GET IT ?!?!?!)
Selling and delivering presents right to your doorstep faster than you can say "online companies are ruining small businesses!"
And YOU are one of the few chosen ones that are lucky enough to help in their endeavor by packaging and delivering presents to the world!
But you're not just delivering presents, no, you're delivering joy!
Because GNOME-AZON cares...about money…their employees, not so much.
But nonetheless you're determined to do your very best and bring happiness to the

So here's the deal:
You put the stuff in the boxes, you close them up and send them on their merry way.
Closing the boxes is done automatically if you put the open box on a packing station.

Some customers want their order already gift wrapped, so you just put the closed
box on the automatic wrapping station to do so.

But remember:
Fragile things must be manually bubble wrapped before you can put them in boxes!
Don't want those to break, ey?

And don't worry if you're low on items. You can get them off the supply-truck that keeps coming by.

Ah, and one more thing:
If you mess up more than 2 orders then you're fired!
So you snooze, you lose!
Simple, right?

//Gamepad strongly recommended
void Controls(input)
....if(input == GamePad)
........walk...................= 'ControlPad';
........action................= 'b';
........pick_or_let_go...= 'a'; 'x';
....else if(input == keyboard)
........walk...................= 'DirectionKeys';
........action................= 'Alt';
........pick_or_let_go...= 'Control'; 'Shift';

Have fun!

We didnt managed it to balance the game quite right,
so if you are good enough, you maybe never getting a game over.
But maybe there will be a Post Jam Release.

It's fun because I have to always be prepared before the next shipping chit arrives.

I like this kind of games but a coop mode is mandatory. Nice job!

Very pretty and fun to play. I just wished it was a little easier. I couldn't keep up with the orders! :D

Pretty addictive game! Will definitely play again when I have some time.

Funny how the game ties into the theme in multiple clever ways! It was very challanging, but not too hard. Visually very pleasing as well, the art is coherent and has a very distictive style.

Overall a fanastic entry with a lot of great humor! :)

Love the mood in this game!! I felt a very depressive vibe but i still couldn't stop playing. I wish that there were more objectives but I understand the time constraints! We were also over our neck with the time. Nice job!

Ugh, an installer...

I can not understand what to do in this game :o I read the instructions but it is still kind of confusing. The music was a little too repetitive too causing me some anxiety while trying to figure out what goes where xP

I came to try your game after you said it was so similar to mine. Really nice work! And yeah it's very similar haha, very fun to see! You got a lot better presentation and music tho! :) I didn't understand how to make the balls, I couldn't put a glass+ball together, or on any station and press B to convert them. I was using a controller.

For those who likes this please head over and try my game as well! (Click on my name)

any chance you can create a version that does not need an installer?
