Baggage - A game of Roommate Bliss

by chipmonkey - Jam Entry

Working but unfinished.
Assets take a moment to load, give the black screen a few seconds.
Two roommates are locked in their one-room apartment. One likes music and if you place a disco-ball, radio, or TV in the room and they touch it, they will turn it on. The other one will turn it off. Drag and drop beds in the room so they can sleep. Other interactions weren't completed in time for the jam, but the idea is that roommates would have varied preferences: early sleepers would dislike night music, party animals would interfere with calm roommates. Fights over the lone toilet, food in the fridge, pets, etc. would cause roommates to be happy, unhappy, fight and, if things go poorly, die.
Music EXCEPT the TV routine are all custom.
Team: LilacLlama, ChipMonkey, ParisTurtle, Hyteck9, (and sort of UlrichVonBeck). Shout out to @GameDevLou

I can't get over how funny it is when they slam into objects. It's just hilarious to imagine these two stomping around mad as hell until they die.

They seem very frustrated.

I couldn't figure out exactly what was going on, so their unhappiness just skyrocketed which was honestly half the fun.

I don't completely get how it works, but at least it's original I think! :3
Oh yeah and Abbott: very unhappy -4950 and Costello: dead -5001.
So yeah I know exactly what I'm doing! xP

I have to agree with everyone else. I have no idea what I'm doing. XP
It would be nice if you added more detailed instructions.

Wow, I managed to kill one. The way they bounce around is very funny!

I didn't really get it. I think it's not a bad idea, but right now it isn't done very well.

In any case, the audio and graphics both didn't really seem to be very consistent - I think that better audio / graphics would really make a difference.

Interesting game, not really entirely sure what is going on though

I'm just confused.

The roommates are frustrated, but I am just sitting over here laughing. This is an odd little sim, but I enjoyed leading them into chaos. mehehehe
