This game was developed for the One Minute Jam.
The gameplay lasts one minute only (approximately).
You can play the game in your browser with keyboard only.

# CONTROLS

  • ENTER - Interaction
  • WASD/cursors - Navigation

# DESCRIPTION

"Is it possible to make a game that leaves a memorable impression within a single minute of gameplay?" This was the game jam's initial question and we asked ourselves the same question and which emotion or thought we could plant in a user's mind to keep this game stuck in their head.

# THE GAME (Spoiler Alert!)

We went for frustration. 

Ever wanted to adopt a pet? Then maybe you know all the preparations; the anticipation. Finally you meet your forever friend, give him a name and watch his little tail wagging. And then somebody enters the room, takes him home and you're a forever loser...

This is my first completed game (and my first game jam). It was developed in JavaScript with PhaserJS.

I love the art style reminded me of UnderTale (that's a good thing) and when I seen the text I just had to name him Sans well hope that other family enjoys him :)

Thank you very much! I really enjoyed the simplicity of the Undertale art style. And besides: Sans is a great name for a dog!

Nice narrative, but too quick. What if you could also have a quiz come up like does he like to play fetch or only eat certain food

Thank you for your feedback! I agree completely. We had more ideas like calling him by his name, choosing a collar or a bandana for him and so on. But unfortunately all these ideas would have gone beyond the scope of one single minute :'D

Cool, but, what's up with the dialogue text?

(+1)

What do you mean exactly?

it's gliched. It gets out of bounds

Oh no, unfortunately I cannot replicate this :/ Could you please tell me the resolution you played it with?

I played it on the browser

(1 edit)

It seems like you must have a resolution/browser width of at least 1001px to display the texts correctly, because itch otherwise does not size the canvas correctly. :/ So thank you very much for pointing this out. Maybe I can provide an exe file in the future.
