Finished minutes before the deadline. Had fun, but it was hard. Learnt a thing or two about organising my designs though, will be drawing things out on paper a lot more from now on.

Some information about the game:
It's about a man who may or may not be insane, making his way out of a mental hospital with the aid of his sock, Keith. The visual style was chosen both for speed, and to give a distinctive, lighthearted look to the game.

Controls are explained in game, but I will clarify some things here-

You have to mash, not press once, when attacking.

Press Z when in contact to return to the player.

How do you get past the first guard? I had the sock attack him.. but he still gets pissed off and chases me. I like the music and the idea.

Hi you have to mash the x key to strangle. Sorry it isn$t clearer, animating the hint boxes was something I wanted to do but ran out of time for, and I thought text prompts would spoil the visual style. Guessing about the autumn

Cont.. button mashing is about 50 percent atm, so I didn't make it clear enough. Thanks for the compliments though :)

Okay, that scared me. I think I might need professional help now.

Not bad :)
I found that the first key was gone on the second play. On a restart it worked fine and I got to where the three guards are together. I started to strangle one but then one of the other got me.

Quite weird, and the art style is strangely fitting.
