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."

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.

Pretty good!

This is strikingly similar to "The Facebook Game" ( w/506611) However, I'm reviewing solely for quality.
Visuals - 9/10
The pixelated look was simple, but it worked perfectly here. Also, the dark mask around the edges of the screen was a nice touch.
Sound - 6/10
This part was the main problem, in my opinion. The music was a bit repetitive and almost got annoying after a while, but it did go well with the feel of the game.
Gameplay - 8/10
A few tiny bugs here and there, but otherwise it was great. I liked the in-game help, and even though I didn't need it, someone probably will.
Overall - 8/10, 4/5
For a quickly-made game, this was very well done. Good job! :)

Great game, completed 72 hour on my 2nd attempt and 48 on my 1st attempt (just). Managed to get all medals except the last one which is confusing me a bit.

The music and the simplistic graphics really helps creates more tension in a less is more sort of way. Also a brilliant concept as well.
