THE DISCOVERY WAS SPIDERS

by Six - Competition Entry

Move with WASD, hold mouse button to look, shift runs, and R to reset when the number of entities gets out of hand.

Not exactly finished.. What I was doing was going to take too long after I got the shadows system working, so in the last hour and a half I dropped a lot of stuff, and added spiders. There's no win condition, no loose condition, but oh man it actually freaks me out. This would have made a good entry for Sophie's 'greatest fear' mini LD.

I would have loved to see this finished. Very interesting use of shadows. Creates a neat effect!

Lovely implementation, if only you'd had the time to get a game in there as well.
I hope you keep working on that bugger!

With some music, it'd be pretty creepy as is. Would love to see a game and objective with this, since the shadow effects are great.

Aww I would have loved to see a more complete version of this. What you have here has a lot of potential.

Despite the fact that it was not finished, I thought that you did a good job of it. Some sounds would make it a very interesting game :)

Interesting demo. :)

The shadows look... strange. They look like big black columns...

Not sure what you had in mind, but I'd like to see it!

Neat effect! The shadows behind the rocks do kind of have an infinitely-tall columns thing going on. I wonder if those are actually mathematically the same.

The shadows look like poles.

Liking the shadows, graphics overall are good. Would love to see a game made out of this thing ;)

Finally, someone has written "Sim Headlouse". At least I think the things sticking up were hairs.

Being serious, it would have been good if you'd had the time to develop your ideas further as it was intriguing.
