If you've ever wondered what participating in a weekend game jam like Ludum Dare is like, look no further than this game! Control your lonely character as he/she works to balance coding with food, toilet, and sleep needs and beat the 48- or 72-hour clock.

Controls: LEFT/RIGHT arrows to move; SPACE to interact with objects. In-game help is enabled by default. After finishing the game, post to the leaderboard to compare your time to game jammers around the world.

This game was developed under similar conditions to those portrayed in the game for the Ludum Dare 22 Game Jam (December 16-19, 2011). The contest theme was "Alone."



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really interesting game. It had a really odd feeling to it, maybe just because of the dark tones and the music. I agree with what another review said; it feels quite anxious and disgruntled.

Liked it.
Hey, how to get an "Easter Egg" medal? I've tried different ways.

Another odd game

Judging from the medals, I thought you were actually going to make a game for this. It would be like one of those things where you submit your own stuff. I had no idea that it could be so strenous just not peeing your pants. Hey, with this time frame, that's something that probably wouldn't even matter. There were a lot of medals that didn't have points. It's weird they would show up in a game where you do have medals with points.

The music certianly made it seem like you were alone. I imagine this is what it's like for people who have to work with a deadline. Heck, people who make games or flash quickly probably have to deal with this. It was a fairly realistic game. It makes you feel proud for all of the people who put so much time and effort into this.
