Clean Room!

by bossinc - Jam Entry

Your room is a mess! Hide the mess before your mom breaks down your door to pass her judgement. Use WASD to orbit around your room and pick up objects by clicking and dragging.

Clean Room! was created over 72 hours by Andrew Hackmann and Josh Bangs for Ludum Dare 37. The game jam theme was “one room.” This was our second game jam but first jam together. We are hobbyist game creators aspiring to go professional.

Our personal goal for this project was to create a game that had unique and intuitive controls. After the “clean your room” idea was decided on we believed that slapping a first person controller would be the obvious and easy way out, so we spent most of our design time coming up with other solutions. The controls had to be conducive to picking up and moving objects in 3D space while not slowing down the pace of the game.

We might continue working on the game because there are so many more things that could be added!

Great job- I had fun flinging everything around. mah damn mother broke the door! Then yelled at ME for it! such a witch :P

It wasnt obvious what was causing her grief- it would be nice if it highlighted or an arrow indicated what she was goin off about so you knew how to improve- but overall great job and idea for the jam theme.

I liked it!
I found it pretty hard to put some objects in the trash and it was literally impossible to grab some of the cans, but it was a good game overall!

A solid entry! interesting mechanic! I like the mood and art style... I spent first playthrough to plan my actions on second playthrough... I had fun cleaning my room but I get frustrated sometimes when I suddenly crack up those dynamites haha
Overall, nice graphics, 5/5

Tsone: Awesome graphics! Although it’s funny to play around with physics, it’s frustrating to try to get the items the place you want. Shadows help but what this would need is some hotspots selected under the cursor to throw items to. It’s awesome how the mother comes and shows the mistakes you did, really funny! And a very good idea to break the gameplay with those firecrackers!



My only gripe is that it's annoyingly hard to pick up some of the items. Seems like the cursor has to be at exactly the right place.

Just one thing! Can you improve the controls? I've tried to manage the things in room and they don't move faster! :)
