I failed! 35kb... I spent so long on this and it was coming in at under 20k and then today when finally finishing it off I got 55kb!!! WTF?! Anyway, I can't be bothered to trim it down any further so consider this disqualified but give it a try anyway. I'm proud of the submission despite it being too big, but I'm excited to finally move onto something else now!

I just “Reported” you by accident... whoops. I hit “Report” instead of “Reply” by accident!! Sorry! I’ll correct anything if it comes to anything. 

Its up to you how you interpret the rules, and I guess it’s up to those who judge how they interpret the rules.

Nooooooo! I bit off more than I can chew and like a student at University left it till the last minute! My game is like the movie Alien, sort of and FNAF mashup. Fisher is stuck on their ship, it’s lost all but vital power and there’s an alien onboard trying to eat her! You’ve got to get her to docking station to escape before the alien catches her. Using CCTV you have to guide her away from the alien using chat commands. The more cameras you use, the more power you lose! 

also, great for sharing it on your GitHub 

54 days ago! I’m such a bad host. I haven’t played your runner yet, I’m going to wait till the deadline and then take a few hours to play all of them! The file size you’ve achieved here is incredible! You could squeeze it into an 80s Casio watch! Great work Ben! 

Good for you for trying it!

Your minecraft clone looks awesome by the way! Look forward to playing it.

Well rules are there to be broken, but I'd prefer it if you bundled the brun just to make it easier for people downloading your game. Unless you specifically let them know in the description and give them a place to download it from. I suspect you'll get more downloads and plays if you make it a single bundled EXE.

Thank you so much. That's very generous of you! 

Hey Josh. Sounds like you’re well equipped for the job! 32k though!! What a challenge. 

Hey Alex. Glad you’ve joined! Hope you enjoy the challenge. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. 

Welcome Namgo and welcome to! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Be sure to keep us up to date in the Work In Progress thread.

Actually I'm going for Size on Disk. As you can see here, my EXE file for a game I'm working on is 33kb on disk. 

Yes it is valid if you can zip it to 32k or less. 

Let's keep it to zip so people don't need to install 7zip or any other software.

I guess I just wrote it up wrong. Allowing to quote from the source I’ve been using:

“For its time, this was way-out stuff in 2k of memory and 32k of storage.“

Let’s post some screenshots here, both of your games and the code! Love seeing some old IDEs (if you’re using one). 

Welcome Ben! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. 5kb?! You could do 6 and fit on the agc. 

Welcome Nealith. Glad to have you onboard. Sounds like you've got lots of options to play with. Looking forward to seeing what you come up.

Hello everyone. I'm Dan. I've made a few games now, one or two for game-jams but mostly just for fun. You can check out my other games here. The longest game I've made was probably about 45 minutes play time, but normally they come in at around 10 minutes. 

It's always intrigued me about fitting content on such small hard drive space, but maybe that's because I'm an 80s kid so used to waiting for the Amstrad cassette tape to play through before the game was loaded. 

I'll be using QBasic to program my "game" in... Not sure still what I'm going to make but made a little progress already.

I agree. It’s a pile of trash.

Hey thanks for taking the time to give it a try. Love the video! 

Thanks man! I noticed your codes 😉

Kitchen layout complete

Happy with all the cupboards, drawers and layout.
I'm quite proud of this sink.
I love this view from outside the kitchen.

Kitchen taking shape

I've started added kitchen units.
View of kitchen units.
Next job is to texture all of the units and handles.
Close up of sink and taps.

Apartment interiors - I've started building the interiors of the apartment buildings. This (I think) is going to be the start position of the game and will contain plenty of items you'll need for the rest of your journey.

Apartment layout.

As you can see, I've started work on the kitchen. The living area is the large room in the centre. Next to the kitchen is the bathroom and a bedroom opposite the kitchen.
Kitchen building.
I'm using the fridge from First Winter but still need to add animation, so you can open the doors and loot the shelves.
Kitchen - Oven
This is also from First Winter, however I've added a grill on the top and re-textured it to look more grotty.
Kitchen - Looking out
A shot looking out of the kitchen. In the distance you can see (what will become) the bathroom.

This is where I'll post updates about the progress of the full version of the game. Look out for screenshots, GIFs and perhaps game play videos. 

Ah thanks man. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed it. It took a lot of work and time. I am still developing obscure type games but I start 50 projects and only finish one. I’m working on a few things at the moment. 

I’m using C# for all my game work. 

Thanks again. 

Thank you for taking the time to give it a go. I enjoyed watching you're play through. Happy new year!

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you enjoyed playing the demo. Thanks for the video. 

What a lovely play through. Thanks for taking the time to give it a shot man. Enjoyed watching you play it. Cheers.

Try now.

This sounds like a really well thought out game. I like the idea of barricading yourself in. It's something I've played around with a lot and although it doesn't feature too much in this little demo, it is going to be a feature of the larger game!

No longer than 3 hours. The time starts in the next 1 hour which doesn't actually begin until 10 minute passed the previous 2 hours. 

I’ll upload a 32 bit shortly.

Glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully you’ll be excited about a full version when I get the time to finish it off. Please consider leaving the game an itchio rating. Thanks again. 

Thank you as always! 

Thank you. Such kind words. Puppet Combo is a great influence on my work. I mentioned PC along with 98Demake and Christophe in the opening credits. 😉 Please consider leaving me a rating if you enjoyed. Thanks again. 

Thanks for the rating buddy. Love your video.
