The split-up game

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
You start it with your partner - you might finish without.
Mac OS X+
Linux / Unix
Brief Play Description: 

This game is designed to be played by a couple. It represents a day as a journey for the relationship.

You will have to build a simple device to hide the other player's side of the screen. (instructions within the game)

Now you play your day together, without exactly knowing what your partner is doing on his/her side. You may cooperate, work together or maybe do things that you REALLY like to do!

Beware: you might end up alone!

The idea was to represent a whole day, but we hadn't enough time. We will probably continue the development of the game, however you can always download the game as it was at the end of the jam.

Installation Notes: 

Download the ZIP file and unzip it. It already contains a subfolder "theSplitUpGame".

For Windows users:
Launch "run.bat".

For Mac and Linux users:
You have to download the Löve framework in order to have the Löve binary. Launch it by giving it the path to the main folder as argument.

You may change the configuration (conf.lua) to fit your screen resolution (we recommend to play it fullscreen).

A friend told me he had two screens and put the window between them, that works too, so if you don't want to eat a pizza you could give it a try. But it is awfully less romantic...

Super Experimental!


I never thought you would make it! The game looks super-polished and the idea with the screen separation is ingenous!

The problem is: I can't play it with my Girlfriend. I'm afraid we will split up. :(
