Note that this feedback is based on the build(s) available at the end of the jam.

There's something poetically wonderful about the juxtaposition between a rogue-like dungeon crawler (something I'm very familiar with) and the world of dance clubs, qties, and dabs (which still confuses me).

Woguey Wikey's hot pink levels populated by nerdies and jello shots remind me a little of the first time I played NetHack. Surrounded by characters, items and stats I didn't understand, it was up to me to explore, examine ,and experiment as I fumbled my way around its dungeons and learned to kick sinks. Woguey Wikey is far less complex, and I have a bit of rogue-like experience to fall back on this time, but its vernacular is entirely foreign and inscrutable to me in a way that is surprisingly exciting. What does style do? Will this ugly be friends with me? Why am I doing 80s dance moves after using vodka?

Interface-wise, I found myself wishing that the game handled keyboard input better and responded immediately to key-up events instead of processing queued key-repeat events. Running to the end of a hallway would often leave me bumping into a wall while a foe dabbed on me. Alternatively a shortcut to move in a given direction until hitting a wall or getting close to an enemy would be great.

My keyboard layout also doesn't have a '<' key (it's a secondary function on the ',' key), but that was easy enough to modify (suggested changes submitted via a pull request), and after that small tweak, I went on to be slain by a Daddy on the 5th floor.

If there's one thing that feels like it's missing from this game (other than being able to interact with corpses passed out clubbers), it's audio. A muffled doof beat could up the game's atmosphere by a lot, and effects like the clink of glass when drinking a shot would add icing to an already delicious and (in its own minimalist way) vibrant cake.

~Woguey Wikey~ isn't didn't make my list of top favourites from the jam, but it was on my shortlist and was very hard to take off.

Thanks for submitting and best of luck with the project! I'm super happy to see that you've continued with development :D

very nice game, but im too incompetent to get past the first level uwu, plz halp what are controls

Developer

Thanks for trying my game, didn't think anybody would. OWO

I copy pasted the controls below.  Please tell me if these answer your question:

To get past the first level (or any level) is by pressing "<" when you are above a "<" on the screen. 

The recommended strategy is to avoid strong opponents unless you have lots of vodka (whisky is ok too). It's handy to have a couple sangrias to use them to evade strong enemies, don't use them against weak ones. If you see a P or a D, you should probably just run, maybe even a q. u's and n's are easy. 

Save your jello shots, only use them if your CUMMIES are at about 10 or 20, because going down the "<" gives you half your health back. 

Controls

Hmm... I seem to be getting a segmentation fault when trying to launch the game. I'm using python 2.7.14

Thanks for telling me, couldn't get anyone to test.

If you try this version it should work:
https://github.com/n8uv/woguey-tdl

But you need to install this:

Developer

I also updated the download on itch.io

I tried to make it so that players wouldn't have to download additional libraries, but failed. 

Players will always have to install tdl, from here: https://github.com/HexDecimal/python-tdl

Sorry for the mess up.
