Ludum Dare 37 — December 9th-11th, 2016 — Theme: One Room

Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Fish Physics

by avalkyrie - Compo Entry

This is my first Ludum Dare game! It's a bit experimental. Make a room and watch out for gravity!

Hit the DONE button once you've added some things to see a message.

Once you have some elements added (and some light to see), you can use the arrow keys to orbit and zoom. You can reset everything with RESET if it's not going so well for your fish.


Built with Unity, Blender, Photoshop, sfxr, and Garage Band. (there is sound, but you need to add something first to hear it).

Note: The buttons to create elements will be obscured unless your window is taller than 800 px.

TO be entirely honest, I had no idea what I was doing in the game at all. But I still enjoyed combining different options to see my beautiful fish (Fishy Von Fishington) die in the dark alone.

Yeah, i'm not entirely sure what I'm supposed to be doing in this. My fish always ends up flying straight up into the air, even after gravity is turned on....I'm assuming I'm supposed to create things in the proper order?

What am I supposed to be doing? Why? How? I am absolutely mystified.

Fun game with multiple endings, for best end turn on everything except gravity. :D

+1 for Linux build
Haha that was really fun! Love the idea very unique :D
Loved to fool around with it.
My fish was named Mr. Bubbles! ^^

I don't see why I wouldn't click all the buttons, not having some of the stuff doesn't seem to add anything, which kinda goes against the end bit which was the only indication of what you clicked on having any kind of real impact. I liked that idea, it could be expanded more, perhaps.

Looks pretty and music ain't bad. Just didn't know what to actually do with it! :)

"Leviatan was just a fish, but maybe he can live"
"Sprok died in the dark"

Needing air to have music was nice :-)

Once I realized what was going on I had fun trying different combinations out to see how the game would react. The music added a unique atmosphere too!

Refreshing interpretation of the theme !

This is something I was going to do but changed my idea when I started drawing a mouse for some reason and my game evolved into something totally different. Nice game.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 6:45am

Good idea. But it's hard to understand what need to do. Please add improved graphics.

VERY interesting idea! Would enjoy seeing what becomes of it if you continue working on it.

+infinity for the fact that you won't hear the music if there's no air.

this would be so much better if fish had some sort of AI and there was a bigger tank so you could watch what happens after you press done :P

Dec 17, 2016 @ 4:05pm

Very interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

If one wants to create a game from scratch, first they must create the universe. Thanks for letting me play your fun game, I liked combining things until the fish survived.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:49am

not sure what was going on :D

I am not entirely sure what I need to do in this game.

New and very interesting concept.

Kinda cool and experimental ! Could probably venture even further into craziness. Cool music.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:36pm

Ahahah, this one was original ! I loved the fact that the music won't play if you don't put some air in the universe ! Smart idea !

Simple, but funny. There's a room for more buttons, maybe adding other fishes, or cat, or catapult. It's a real playground, sandbox type of game. I like it.

Fishy died in the dark :(
Made me chuckle, good job.

Amusing and a bit surreal.
