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."

Challenging, but not impossible if you time everything right, on both modes. It's a little hard but I can deal with that. My biggest problem is that FUCKING MUSIC in the background. It made me feel like I was slowly going insane.

Unclean, but fun.

Someone needs a piss bottle, hell. He could simply slide his computer closer to the batroom, go to the kitchen , grab some foil or plastic wrap and construct a makeshift aquaduct straight to the toilet.

He also doesn't wash his hands! Good god, I don't want to touch that keyboard!

Pretty fun. Unsanitary, but fun.

A really good game. However, I think you should have made more things. For example, you could make more options on the Computer, and things like a TV and Game Console, and backyard. Having like 4 items seems kinda dull.

I enjoyed this game, and thought that there was a balance between the three variables that worked quite well. I almost starved to death and was quite sleep deprived when I made it at 46.46 hours.
