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.

The One Room Club

by Wan - Jam Entry

The One Room Club is a game of dwarves, elfes and DISCO! Use your wits and speed to fight your way to the VIP Room and satisfy your thirsty dwarves!

TIPS
- You need to click on the cards to select the one you want. The card will play by itself to the beat of the music.
- "Drunk Elves" push you, "Security Orcs" throw you out!
- If you play a "Funky Dwarf" card, not only a new dwarf will spawn, but ALL your cards will also be replaced. It's very useful to remove cards you don't need.


---- [ POST-COMPO FIXES ]-----

- Game no longer plays a default card if you're too slow
- Card randomness is less frustrating
- Cutscene now plays normally

What a nice entry! I remember seeing you during LD37 development, and being worried about the disco theme, being too similar to ours!

Nice audio, great graphics and preety cool and interesting playing system! Will probably play again tomorroW! Keep it up!!!

Looks good and sounds good. The gameplay was very confusing at first, but then I realized the game is basically about avoiding the left arrow cards. Interesting idea with a real-time card game like this. At first I thought it was one of those programming-type games, but it wasn't.

Very good job au audio and graphics, they are super nice ! We really are in a disco club :p I like the humor of the game with the differents races that we don't expect to be in this sort of game !
Keep creating games !

A very impressive and polished game. Lots of potential to expand the whole 'card/dancemove' aspect of the game.

Thanks for your comments.

@Martin Vilcans "The gameplay was very confusing at first" Yes we have seen that after watching other people playing it. We didn't have enough time to balance the game and it's our biggest regret for this entry.
We have done some little fix on the post compo version to make the game easier but we have still lot of work to do on the gameplay part.
I think the best option would be to create different mode to be able to play on easy mode at first.

@handoharken We planed at first to have other types of card and I think we will try to add some on the post compo version.

So far the best graphics/audio/humor I've played.
Really well polished for 72h, the idea is unique as I've seen until now, and the vibe is great.
I think it's confusing and could be me, but I think it's a bit hard too.
A great entry after all, well done!

Great game! I love the art but the 72h version random resulted in a left card too often making it indeed an exercise in frustration. But high marks overal! -- WL

PS: Your repo is still set on private...

Nice funky disco game. I like the idee that you move with cards.

Interesting dance game! There was a thing that after my first game it would automatically select a funky dwarf card in the beginning. It seemed like I could always push some people out of the way as well. Also sometimes I would run out of funky dwarves and it would just be all up or down arrows. I guess that's part of the game but it also end up slowing down the gameplay to just stalling. Maybe just more funky dwarves or more variety of cards (diagonal or multi movement cards?). Anyway keep up the good work!

Very well polished game! The music is super cool, as are the graphics.

All my points of critique are already fixed in the postcompo release, so I won't even mention them here.

I included your game in my LD37 Playthrough series: https://youtu.be/KZBHX8cfwxc

Very good job!
