Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

No clever thread here: It looks and sounds awful if I just describe it to you, but it's the best damn indie puzzle game since... well, actually I played Braid last night, and that was pretty awesome. But besides that, probably that crazy japanese cursor*10 game that got big a few months back? Yeah, it's definitely comparable in its genius to that.

Oh, and it has physics puzzles, G&T. I know how much you guys like physics puzzles.

In fact, it's by the same dude that made Crayon Physics. And I'm telling you, it's awesome. Also, the music is hilarious.

Play it. Love it.

Pray for a quilted jumbo roll sequel.

    This game is cool, and this is some pretty strong toilet paper. Charmin?

    Very delightful, but the loud music (with no way to turn it off or lower it aside from deleting the sound file) and lack of save option are a bit of a downer. Is that shit hard/time consuming to code or is this guy lazy?

    It's Kloonigames. He makes a different game every month. This one was made in seven days. So it's a little bit of both, he's under self-imposed time constraint.

    Oh man, watch out guys. If you let too much TP out it crashes, at least with me D:. Happened twice to me now, each time a number of levels in, and not being able to save is killing it for me.

    Yeah, I found that too. But you have to let out a LOOOOT of TP to let out before it crashes. As long as you don't just let the game run with jimmy looking over the side of a cliff, with the TP draped over, you'll be fine.

    There's a BAT file in the blog you can (apparently) use to skip back to any level, anyways. So it's not a huge deal.

    while stuck on level I stopped to think for a minute and the game crashed, and I don't have a desire to start again. game was kind of cool but the slippery controls and annoying music made it very meh in my mind.

    Okay. I beat it. Despite it crashing on me when I got to the last level... though I didn't know that at the time. *shrug* Not bad I suppose, but not particularly difficult either. I fought more with the controls and annoyingly pulling the paper towards me after I had reached the exit correctly than anything else.

    I'm not as keen on this game as some of you. It crashes if you let the TP unroll too much. I was expecting a game over or something, but not a crash! DAMN YOU TP GODS!!

    It's a good game, and quirky and fun, but not as gold as I thought it'd be.

    Just beat it. it was pretty dang fun, and I'd certainly recommend it to others, but the last level seemed too easy. I grokked the strategy after maybe 4 minutes, while one map in the middle took me like 20.

    How long was it? I never actually finished. I stopped last night and went to sleep a few after the red force fields started to appear, there's one level that gets really platformy.

    15ish levels? And which level was platformy? I don't remember any that required any sort of hardcore dexterity, which is good because the pull of the toilet paper plus the skidding and bouncing when you fall/ride elevators was driving me crazy as it was.

    Actually, looking through the data files, looks like it's 18 levels. Apparently I got to the very last one when I gave up and went to sleep >_<

    Uh.. if it's really the 3/4th level, the only thing I can possibly see you missing is.. you know you can 'grip' the toilet paper and prevent any more of it falling out with shift or the down arrow, right?

    If it's the first level with boxes (two of them):

    I beat it, it's a pretty neat game, but I agree that it's a little too frustrating in places. Still, I liked the art and the whole toilet paper mechanic (I don't think I've ever said that about a game before.)
