It’s been a long while that I haven’t written anything. I’m sorry about that, lot’s of stuff happening right now and not really related to video games…
I didn’t even have the time to write a wrap up of the last Ludum Dare or make a dedicated page for Six Degrees of Separation Between Me and the Party, what a shame!
Concerning Ludum Dare #38, I was really happy with the final results. That’s a great progression since last time!
I wrote a post mortem a few days before the results if you’d care to read. And I promise I’ll create a dedicated page for the game in a few days 😀
I also wrote a tutorial on pixel perfect animation in Unity, or a description of how I handeled the pixel perfect animation during the Ludum Dare.
I was really pleased with the general reception of the game. With the warm feedback from players on Newground where additionally it was also frontpaged.
I also enjoyed reading these two cool articles written by Nataniel Nielson and Free Game Planet and these two cool gameplay videos from Jupiter Hadley and Mickey Blighe.
The game was also mentionned by Adventure Gamers in their monthly Following Freeware.
Thank you all! and I hope I’m not forgetting anyone!
In the mean time two of my former games also get themeselves reviews: Free Afternoon by Free Game Planet and Loop Hell by PajamaGaming
It’s so cool to learn that some people still play these games. 🙂
I’ll be hopefully doing Ludum Dare #39 so see you then!
Some people tell me they struggle to find all the 3 endings, which is a pity as I think it really is a nice thing to see them all.
I’ll try give you a few hints that hopefully won’t spoil all the fun for you.
spoilers below, please highlight the text to show the solution:
Talk with all your chat contacts. Some of them will eventually invite you to the party.
When you’re invited just go out.
There is a bug in the original jam version (corrected in version 1.1.4 and in Web version on Newgrounds) that makes it impossible to get this ending if you have talked on the phone. So if you’re playing original version, do not talk on the phone.
Ending 2 and 3
Some of the contacts will suggest contacting people outside chat. Don’t forget that your telephone is in your bag and that you like to look outside the window from time to time. When you’re invited just go out.
You could also consult this complete video walkthrough made by aWalkthroughLife:
Regarding Newgrounds medals, you’ll get 4 medals if you find all the solutions.
“fresh air” medal can be obtained by (highlight the text mouse): talking to your neighbour outside at least 10 times
“Contact Rockin’ Dave” can be obtained by (highlight the text mouse): sending a message to fake Rockin’ Dave account at least 5 times
Another Ludum Dare! Another Game! 🙂
The theme was “Small world” so I put up a game ispired by the six derees of separation theory. It’s a short narrative game about two kids trying to crash a party called Six Degrees of Separation Between Me and the Party.
The game actually has 3 different endings and 2 gameplay modes. I hope you’ll also be impressed by the pixel perfect graphics and character movement (I’ve lost hours on it so please be impressed – I think I’ll be making a tutorial later on it as it really isn’t well documented anywhere on the net).
Although I didn’t make it to the compo, and I didn’t have time to make any music, I still am very content with what came out. I made such a progress since my first Ludum Dare!
Anyway I’ll be hopefully releasing a webGL version in a few weeks, it will be a post jam version directly. But before that please play the original game and leave me some feedback (whether you liked it or not). Your feedback is really very helpful. Thanks!
Play the game on itch.io
