Have you ever realized how inevitable distractions are? Especially when you're trying to code or, say, participate in a game jam. Will you make it through the day without your code clean and your place intact?


Ludum Distractio is an attention/time management game where you have to delay the inevitable distractions over the course of a day as you try to get your code free of bugs. But beware, if you neglect certain things for too long, they might be irreparable.


Friendly, colorful atmosphere

Moody music!

So many jokes in the code, I can't even!

How to play

There's a How to Play section in the game (with pictures!). With your mouse move to a line with an error (squiggly red line) and hold the left mouse button down until the bar fills up. Rinse and repeat. Don't forget that there's a scroll bar at the right-hand side in the game's monitor!


Click and hold left mouse button to resolve


A game by LadyMistLeaf (programming, game design) and Phil Strahl a.k.a. Pixel Prophecy (visuals, sounds, music) made in 72 hrs for the Ludum Dare 50 game jam in April 2022. We planned for so much and sadly, neither dog nor cat made it into the jam entry :(

so silly!

You can't call me out like this! Brah

That was stressful... I'm a software developer myself, but I've never found programming to be that stressful. However, I also have 2 children. :-) Nice game, by the way.
