----This game was made for the Ludum Dare 35 by one guy----
"There was a time when I cared about where the things I own came from. When did I change? What shaped me into a different person?"
A little art game about the life of a factory worker. Make shoes as fast as you can until management is satisfied with your work!
Game play was really slow for the first two rounds I had to wait for more than 30s for a feedback. The first four shoes made was not up to the quality and it's cruel to have a finger chopped off. :/ It's boring to work in a factory in where the only accompany was a fly. The other characters are as quiet as robots.
I really liked this game, but there's a point in the game where it rolls in an incomplete shoe and then immediately rolls it out saying that the shoe I made was terrible when in actuality I never had the chance to work on it.
I'm not sure if that was intentional or just a bug but it makes the game unwinnable.
You made me think about a lot of things that usually go unnoticed. I tried to answer to the question you wrote in the comment section, "when did I change?" Was it when I got my first expensive gift? Or when I felt disillused for the first time? Maybe it was when I "couldn't bother" to think about it while shopping? I really can't tell, unfortunately. This game took me back to that moment, when things did matter, and I won't forget this again.
Now let's talk about the game:
This game was pretty well done, even if it was simple.
The music was so catching, it created some contrast with the setting, and this detail made it all more real. The country music calls back to a happier place, and it's probably the music you would find in a factory like this.
The "perfect filling pixel" is also spot on, it's not supposed to be easy, it's supposed to be real.
The only negative aspect I feel I should point out is that the graphichs are too simple, they're perfect for the shoe and the components, but the background shouldn't be in pixel art, maybe something more detailed could have worked better. And that fly will give me chils for days...
Thanks for playing it, you made my day!! :)
The concept and social idea of this game is nice, i thinks players get the message about the horrible conditions of factory workers in 3rd world countries.
The thing about making yourself conscious of what you have is nice.
Im givin 3.5 stars because, after all its supposed to be a game, and, the need of the "perfect fitting pixel" with a timer is stressing.
And, considering that 5 seconds is a really short time for this perfect fitting, it makes the game impossible to win. I get that the message is that, in the reality those workers never win too. But, its a game, and it shouldnt be impossible.
I liked it a lot, id love to see more of you work! Keep on going!
I really loved the game, but just a side-note for new players: At a certain point, I think around 15 seconds, it stops automatically moving to the next shoe when you're done correctly and you have to let the timer play out.
