Ludum Dare 41: Treasure Chest #51

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.).

In this deliciously looking hack’n’slash you get a list of ingredients you have to catch to cook up the dishes your costumers want. Each ingredient has its own home – either in the fridge, pantry or produce area – and you must attack them with the appropriate weapon. Need to get some fried eggs? Just hit them with the gigantic pan! Or are you looking for a chopped carrot? Get your oversized knife and cut them to pieces! But beware that you don’t attack any innocent condiment, because if you do, your timer will go down by ten seconds. Mhhhm, yummy!

In this wonderfully pixeled puzzle stealth game you must place five marks to kill all your enemies at once with just one silent attack. The more you progress, the more difficult it gets, because the later enemy types are placed wider away from each other or have an armor or they raise the alarm when they just see you in front of them. Great work!

In this wacky game you are a boxing coach and an amateur surgeon at once! Motivate your mentee with cheerful messages and good advice when he fights, and after each round you have to care about his wounds. Seam up his flesh wounds with a fish hook, glue him together or cool down his bumps with some icecream. A bit weird, a bit gross, but delightful at the same time!
