Elves with Shelves

by Fantasieleben - Jam Entry

4 player couch coop madness!

You can play 2 player with keyboard in WebGL or download the game to play with up to 4 controllers.

- Get stuff from the boxes in the warehouse
- Stock the shelves with the right goods (Pick up with Space | Shift or A on the controller)
- Go the register and press (Space | Shift | A) to let customers pay.
- Don't let customers wait or you will lose (red counter in the upper left)
- Make cash (golden counter in the upper left)

Fun and original game, it would be fun to play it with friends (I can't find anyone right now but I will try the multiplayer later). The graphics are fine. There is one bug I found, sometimes robots who are looking for milk stop in front of the shelve and don't move anymore. Beside that, it's all right. Good job guys !

Interesting game, I like it overall. It's not really intuitive, but I got the feel after a while.

Great theme, nice graphics and most importantly fun to play with friends. It takes a while to understand how it works but after you do, you'll have fun!

This was really cool! If I had to make one small critique, the signs on the supply chests could be a little easier to read. Also I think a way to mess with the people you're playing against would have made a great addition, but still this is very impressive!

Nice game. Like everyone else I found it difficult to know the boxes but it was fun none the less. Reminds me of that indie cooking multiplayer game.

Nice entry, it gets quite busy after a while! :) I also had the bug that some customers stopped in front of the milk. There is another bug when you replay a couple of times: at some point I had 4 player characters (4 different colors) but 2 characters moved with the arrow keys, and the two others responded to WASD. Other than that, I enjoyed playing it. :)

Cool game, the customers tend to stop, but the concept is good.

Surprising idea, it took me a little time to get into it. I like the game play and graphics, in general it was fun to play :) Congrats!

Tried playing this solo... wasn't quite sure what was going on. Not very intuitive. perhaps it needs multiple people playing, but it let me just have 1 person joining, so my guess is it's not that.

Very nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/1nLjn2-nhmQ
