    Evolutionary Chocolatier - davidwparker - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Written in HTML5 using Processing.js.

    All instructions, (known) bugs, things I wanted to do, etc. are on the game page.

    This is my 3rd LD, and I'm not as keen on this one :/

    Thanks for playing and let me know what you think and any bugs you find!

    Interesting concept, but without the levels and stuff you have listed implemented not much to do, just wait and click the next arrow from time to time. Sounds like what you were planning though would have been fun.

    If you added some animations, this would have a better feel to it.

    Well I sure have never played such a game before.
    What can be said? Nice GUI, not really much game here due to the lacking features :)

    I agree, animations would be awesome! Also, I noticed that when it's cooking, white chocolate is not quite white...

    This is actually a pretty cool idea (and quite original) but right now it definitely feels incomplete. I feel like I game like this would need lots of visual feedback (ie cookies getting burned, or being a goobly mees of dough if undercooked) to really be understandable without so much text instruction.

    I like the concept and where you're going with it... just seems like time got to you (didn't it get us all?). I'd love to see a fleshed out of this concept though!

    Love the concept! Keep working on it.

    Thanks for all the feedback all! I definitely got struck by time :( (as did we all!) And it's something that I think would be fun to add animations too.

    I probably won't have time for a while (school just started up again), but hopefully I'll find time to continue working on it in the future

    Great concept - please evolve this :)

    Top marks for innovation, didn't expect to be playing a chocolatier sim

    I like that your tried something different. What is this competition if it isn't time to experiment? Good job and best of luck in the future.

    There is no doubt I like this game, because who doesn't like chocolate!? Heh heh, very clever concept for this Ludum Dare.

    I don't like chocolates but I like this idea though I think it would be better if not the chef but the chocolate recepies evolving based on what the costumers like.

    I encourage you to finish this game! And don't worry I have done 3 LDs in a row learning a new platform. It's a fun thing to do and a great oppurtunity! :)

    Interesting idea. I think with some more time it could definitely turn into something unique. I think you should keep working on it!
