Ludum Dare 42: Treasure Chest #78

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 wimmelpicture-like puzzle game, you gradually put a monster back together by, for example, feeding it, placing its teeth in the right places, or by nudging its brain. But the game never tells you exactly what your task is; you have to figure it out yourself. These lovingly put together tasks in combination with the simply amazing graphic style make this game a little jam gem. Monster love activated!

Each level in this puzzle game forces you to build a city in a very, very small space. You always get a list of conditions that need to be met to get you to the next level. The individual building elements have a different effect on the city dwellers: Parks, for example, make them happier, while the stench of too-close built garbage stations makes them unhappy. Be clever!

The typical sentence of grandmothers is what? Of course, ‘You should eat more, you look so thin, as if you were about to starve!’ In this game, you’ll be served plates full of food at regular intervals, which you’ll need to distribute in your stomach as quickly as possible, before the grandmother returns with the next plate. So, do not disappoint your grandma, otherwise you won’t be her angel any longer, and believe me, you don’t want that… Gulp!
