Growing Ties

Share Collapse

Author Comments

You run a tie shop. Patrons want to get custom ties.
Can you cut a tie at the right size for each one of your patrons?

Use Right Arrow key to grow a tie.
Use Left Arrow key to cut it.
The tie will fall down, and hopefully reach a patron.

(Alternatively, you can use Up Arrow / Down Arrow or Z / X or D / F keys if you prefer)

Be careful to cut right-sized ties!
A perfect-sized tie matches the height of the patron’s shirt.
You'll get 10 points for such a perfectly fitting tie, but less points if the tie is too long or too short. Of course, Patrons varies greatly in size and shape!

Cut several perfect ties in a row to get bonus "combo" points.

This game was created in 72h during the Ludum Dare 34 Jam, on the following themes: “Growing”, “2 button controls”, and the bonus theme of… “It’s a tie!”.

Better points for better fitting ties, but it's harder to measure them then you would expect! You can try to throw bad ties away but sometimes someone will catch it and get a 12ft tie..


I played this with a ruler.

I love the concept for this game. It has very little replay value, the fun lasted about 2 minutes, the control were questionable, but it was still a laugh because of the pure absurdity. Good job.
