Spring Clean – DO NOT CROSS

Cats, roombas, and lots and lots of barrier tape
2017-12-05 / Sebastian Morr / CC BY-SA 4.0 / game

A game for Ludum Dare 40 I made with Kiki. Original score by Winnie, character graphics by Mai! The theme was “The more you have, the worse it is”.

Spring cleaning time! But be careful to protect your increasing number of cats from your roomba by drawing lots and lots of barrier tapes!

You download the game (or play the web version) at the Ludum Dare website.

We also had a sister project, Kittychaos, created under the same roof, and partially sharing assets!

Development

This was a rather small-scope project. We managed to implement it in two days, and had the complete third day for testing and bugfixing. Very relaxing!

Comments

I love the idea. And its a nice riff on those games where you divide the floor and I think I like this better than those. It feels more strategic. –tsuk13

Overall cute-level is 10/10. Audio complements the visuals and pushes the cute-meter to 11/10. –Simon Rahnasto

Cool basic mechanics! At first simple, then cat synchronization and corralling. :P Well done! –Joror

I love the way the vacuum cleaner moves, it’s so stupid and inefficient and I love it. –pogo

Recordings

Jupi did a playthrough, and decided she would rather vacuum the floor herself:

Results

Results were pretty solid. We got a good Theme rating, and except for Graphics, our scores were all better than 200th place!
