by corupta - Mini LD 61 Entry

How much money can you make as a beggar in 7 days?

It's one of my first games and I made my own graphics (my weakness) this time as pixel art :D
I used java, gimp, audacity :)

Made over 3k dollars as a Hobo in a week, then got shot by a mugger - I regret Notin!

As for the feedback, I'd say that during the begging mode as a player you get to do pretty much nothing, especially on the first day.

Would have been cool if you had to actually play the flute or make attention gestures by pressing specific keys then they appear on the screen or something of that sort. (beats starring the at screen and the money counter)

Overall really cool idea, great first personal entry.

There's no restriction for updating the game, right?
Thanks for your feedback. You're right, adding gestures will improve the game greatly. I'll add this feature very soon.

It's a funny game, the backstory let you think, very well done.
I'm waiting for the update, since i've felt the same about the lack of things to do while begging.
For the graphics, analyzing references before start is great for improvement,
there is also some techniques that can making it easier, vectorial drawing for example.
Great work, keep it up.

Super neat game! I enjoyed it. I included it in part 1 of my MiniLD #61 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)
