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.

Last Call

by BulletsArePeopleToo - Jam Entry

Defend the last beer in the world.

WASD - Move
Right click - Pick up / throw weapons
Left click - Swing weapons

If you play the web version, it plays slightly better in Firefox. In Chrome, the opening scene is a little messed up the first time you play it, but then works correctly if you try again after dying.

Very challenging and fun. Graphic can be smoother and better.

Very fun. Pretty hard too. I got most of the way through the third round, with the big arm spinny guys.

Played it to completion. Way more fun than it should have been. Loved the progression of wackiness and wrecked-ness. And the bro puns.

It was a bit easy to come up with a winning strategy. Circle-strafing and throwing everything was unbeatable, if a touch tedious. Sad that melee was too unsafe to use – maybe give it the ability to deflect projectiles.

Nice touch where the increasing mess as you play makes it harder to grab the overpowered stools!

Sweet expression on the bartenders face.
Movement could be smoother and more weapons. The kirmes techno made me even more aggressive (lol)

Found myself playing that a bit longer than expected, it's got a nice hook!

That was really fun! The pool cue is basically useless XD

This is a great show of what Ludum Dare can be. The graphics are pretty good and I dig the music choice.

The aiming needed a bit of work but I guess you could chalk that up to alcohol.

I liked this more than I thought I would. Loved the zaniness. Controls felt good. Nice ARPG.

Fantastic game, the premise, graphics, game-play, and sound are fantastic! Aiming needs a little polish but other than that, fantastic!

Cool game and the first one that make me laugh. I had a bit of difficulty aiming with the main character because I'm playing on a laptop with only a trackpad (no mouse).

Dec 14, 2016 @ 4:58am

"...for some contrived reason." Love it! Graphics are great too.

What a fun game. I just ran in circles hitting everyone with the pool cue! HAHA! Was very challenging. The graphics are ok but you can improve them. Nice music choice by the way

Fucking Jules. Should have just chugged that beer behind the counter himself if he wanted it so bad. Would have saved me from being murdered by Broptimus Prime.

Amazing. It definitely gets harder as the game pushes on. Catches the feel of a bar fight with 30 people pretty well, speaking from experience. Great job!

Haha, cool story!
But the graphics and the animations can be improved.

This was awesome, really. I died at the bros wave. (Both from laughing and died in the game)
Even Jules wants my beer??? Why did he give it to me in the first place then? :(
Awesome work!

I loved it. Very funny.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:00am

This is an amazing entry, I watched you play it on a stream and just decided to play it for myself now, I think perfectly executes the theme, gameplay and humor so well. I also loved the sound design which did a great job at making it immersive.

There's nothing like a good bar fight! The concept of throwing stuff at people is always fun, and the mood was on point as well (with the blur from drinking). My one complaint is that with all the beer bottles on the ground, it's a little hard to pickup actual weapons like the easy to aim pool cues or the powerful bar stools!

Very funny little game, nice!

GREAT GREAT GREAT.... fun to play and humorous, and the jukebox idea was brilliant... great work :)

This was a really fun entry. Normally I ding games a bit if their idea is pretty rote but the combination of using weapons acquired in the room and ragdoll worked out quite well. It was super-enjoyable and suitably wacky.

I think this might be my favorite game so far! Excellent concept, great balance of dodging and aiming skill, stylized graphics, nice use of music and sound even if you didn't make it. Found it really fun and addictive and it was funny. Nice one! Cheers -RS

Dec 16, 2016 @ 10:41pm

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

@Big Cow, fyi, all the sound effects were recorded by us - that part was a lot of fun! And that was something we'd never done before in previous jams. But we used music by Kevin MacLeod, which is why we opted out of the audio category.
