Ludum Dare 41: Treasure Chest #44

What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

Real dates can be awkward, we all know that. Dating simulations can be even more awkward. But what happens, when you mix up the physics game genre with dating sims? Exactly, pure awkwardness! Light up a candle, pour in some wine and feed your lovely counterpart some meatballs – but please, please, please don’t make such a huge mess, alright? A funny little game!

Do you like shooting up made alive furniture? Do you love to type the names of your enemies into your shotgun and use the words as munition? Are you excited when you see a typewriter in front of you? If you shouted ‘Yes!’ in joy to each of my questions, then this jam entry will be your own little paradise! And if not, try it anyway, it’s ridiculously beautiful in its own way.

What happens when video game characters could just swap their genre? In this jam entry you have to help out a cute love guru bunny in a battlefield, to match up the six soldiers in the best possible order; but also a grumpy combat veteran wants to get out of a cutesy-wutesy-patootsy-candy-shmandy world and he counts on you. Well then, soldier! Make love, not war, or, uhhh, maybe a bit of war? But also love? Yeah, definitely… Whatever, follow my commands, aye!?
