In The Time of Our Lives, you'll run across acquaintances you vaguely remember from your High School yearbook. The start screen will show you your first two acquaintances, and a new one will be added after each level. The right interactions will create friendships and help you climb the social ladder. Wave, fist-bump, and hug your way to the top.
However, interacting with strangers or breaking social norms could cause a crushing blow to your social life. How high can you rise before it dies completely?
Arrow Keys — Move
Z — Wave — Wave at acquaintances when you have eye contact to become friends.
X — Fist-bump — Fist-bump friends when you have eye contact and are an appropriate distance away to become BFFs.
C — Hug — Hug BFFs when you have eye contact and are an appropriate distance away.
This is my first time participating in Ludum Dare! I learned a lot, but there are definitely some things that I did not give myself enough time for. Most obviously: music and sound effects. It would have been a lot of fun to add some voice to the awkward encounters. I also should have focused on having a MVP earlier in the process so I could have realized (and fixed) the problems with the scoring system. It could certainly be balanced or even completely re-thought to a strike system or something similar.
Either way, I hope you enjoy what I came up with that weekend!
