You are Beach Sign Cop! Your goal is to remove any rule-breaking beach-goers from the beach so that the occupancy does not go over the limit.

This is my first published PICO-8 game, I created it for Ludum Dare 54 so I can better learn how to make games with it. I hope you all like it! Included on Tab D is a Rust program that I wrote during the compo that encodes images into a lua table that can be decoded and drawn later. It's not perfect (probably should have it as a string so it doesn't eat up all the tokens :L ) but it got the job done for the compo.

Have fun! Please leave feedback if you can :D

This is really fun, running around and catching people is such a cool idea, with a little bit more complex behavior and maybe more rules over time it could be absolutely amazing.

Nice concept, unexpected ending

The music is chef's kiss perfect. I need to find my controller to play because some of those smokers are fast as hell! You'd think people with cloudy lungs wouldn't be able to run so fast. I think the best I've done using my laptop keyboard is 7 rule breakers remaining before I run out of time.

Thank you all for your kind comments! I agree the smokers are a bit fast, they used to be runners! The original rule was for 'No Running', but the dash of smoke they leave behind looked like they were smoking, hence the (much better) rule change. They can randomly max out at your speed limit, so perhaps in a new version I will make sure it's at least 4px/s slower than your max speed.

I was able to beat the game on my phone when running on the ldjam website, but it's hard to use the D-Pad as an analog stick, lol. I might also increase the catch radius but I'm worried it will cause more accidental strikes from when people overlap each other.

wait so spoiler ahead

all those ghosts in the ending, were they the rule breakers that you "disposed of"?
