Ladylike is a game about a little girl and her mother. It was written by Nina Freeman. Nina Freeman and Emmett Butler programmed it. Deckman Coss made the sounds. Winnie Song drew the art.

The first version of Ladylike was made in a weekend for the Ludum Dare game jam in August 2013. Later, the game was polished and updated for submission to the IGF Student Showcase, in which it received an honorable mention.

Play It

You can experience Ladylike for yourself at Emmett's website or Nina's website

Compile It

Compiling and running Ladylike yourself requires the Flex SDK, in particular the mxmlc compiler binary. Once you have installed mxmlc, you can compile the code with

mxmlc src/ludumdare.as -include-libraries=lib/as3corelib.swc -o ladylike.swf

This creates the flash executable ladylike.swf.

As you can see from the above command, Ladylike uses the AS3 core library, which is distributed with this code.
