Cat Gentlemans Play: Insult Spinner 10 Cents by RobotLovesKitty

[raw]
made by RobotLovesKitty for LD28 (JAM)
We are @robotloveskitty and we had a blast making this!

Two cat gentlemen, insults, honor, one chance to aim and one bullet to settle their dispute! Who will win? you decide!

A two player VS QWOP-Like insult slinging dueling pistol game.
-Instructions-
The two buttons (QW or OP) do it all, from spinning the insult wheel, controlling the glove arm, walking your ten paces, and then aiming your arm. May the best gentlemans win!

You can play by yourself and we will both be very impressed by your skills!

(We also updated and fixed that glove slapping section to make things more fair, and you can't shoot after your dead.)

I find Reginald harder to slap with for some reason but overall a great experience and it was nice to watch you stream a bit(I was bourbonbrick in the chat). I love the graphics.

At first I feared this was a QWOP clone, but I like that you cannot fall over. That said, I did shoot myself in the foot the first time.

Hilarious! Unfortunately it is unbalanced favoring player 1 in the slap match. It is also very difficult to get the shot off the first time. Overall: humorous and fun.

Haha! The slapping was really enjoyable, and the whole thing was fun.

Awesome fun! Best part is easily the glove slapping.

Oh my god.

It's obvious that you were going for the humor category here, and by Jove you've done outstanding. The game took forever and a half to load, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't worth it.

It's unfortunate that I didn't have a friend nearby to play this with me, because I'm sure we would've had a grand ole time with this. I can't tell which part I like more: the absurdity of the glove slap-off, or the ridiculous way the characters shimmy their way towards the lamp poles before firing off a round.

I clicked on this game expecting to be thoroughly entertained, due to the screenshot, and I thank you for not disappointing.

Any game with gentleman cats and duck ladies gets five stars from me. I love that it's multiplayer too, well done!

The slapping was the best! Great job!

There's some real player narrative going on here. In the third act, by tapping the keys rapidly, you can simply dance a tidy jig to the tune rather than all that gunshot business.

Be sure to check out the other gentleman slapping contest game(?!?): http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=30068

This game is very funny, I really liked the visuals. Having the gloves flap around without hitting anything in the slapping part makes it even better.

This was hilarious, loved it! I like that this is a two-player game that can still be played by a single person.

Kudos on the humor! For me, the sound is what makes the slapping bit so excellent.

Although opening with insults is perfect thematically, the interaction for the insult spinner doesn't really work. Makes for a good screenshot, though.

To echo the entire Ludum Dare community's thoughts-this is brilliant!!! I noticed that it was easier to slap with Franklin, and others said Reginald, so maybe it all evens out in the end : )

17. Dec 2013 · 06:25 UTC
This was really funny! The controls are kind of difficult, but I get that you were going for a QWOP-like feel, and that works too. The theme wasn't very obvious, though.

Awesome :) I like the glove slapping physics, waiting to drop to the correct position for full slapping impact. Not very realistic, but then again... a tiger fighting a cat in waistcoats... shooting eachother, totally sweet. The only real critical point I have is the choice of pantaloons! :P

That was pretty hilarious, especially when the characters starting walking to the opposite lamp posts. Probably one of the weirdest and craziest games I've played so far. Really nice work on this!

Only feedback would be that the glove physics were a bit finicky, otherwise fun two player game

+1 for glove slapping. The walking was hilarious, more so if you're trying to control both at the same time.

This is my favorite game of this whole Ludum Dare. Not even an exaggeration.

I beg you, develop more minigames for it and release on Steam. My friends would burn an effigy of Mario Party if we could have something this dapper.
