Object: Pass the Talisman on to as many other survivors as possible. Avoid monsters.


"We'd been stuck in the cave for so long. Dad's health had failed. The sickness had slowly killed him, and I'd started to feel it myself. I had to see if there was anyone else out there. I needed help. As I left the cave that had become our home, I gripped the Talisman and his last words echoed in my ears: 'It's dangerous to go alone. Take this!'"

Interesting idea. I wish there were more levels to play. You should also consider making wall more different than floor tiles.

It took me a few tries to realize the purpose of the game (even though you state it right up there), that I'm not supposed to kill all the monsters, just pass the talisman along to every survivor...
Anyway, it's not bad.

Fun and cool idea. One minor issue I had is that sometimes when you run into a monster it hits you several times and greatly reduces your health.

Cool, I won!

Pretty neat, cute graphics, nice feel to it overall.

Great work, and congrats on submitting!

No timelapse, not much blog entries... one to be specific. Dude gotta work on that, I love reading postmortems, watching timelapses, and seeing goofy pictures of your meal.
Nice game. The sound was annoying but the game was interresting to play. Just too hard for me as I kept dying and bumping into these green thingies. Just missing some kind of win condition, or I am just too bad with it.

Hey all - thanks for the great feedback. I actually agree with all of it! If I have time, I will work on this some more... what are people interested in? More straight up levels? Same style of arena level but varied mechanics? More of the ridiculously cliched story? Glad you all enjoyed it! I am dumbfounded by some of the games people put together in just 2 days - so much talent!

A good idea, with hidden survivors. Once you passed the talisman to all survivors nothing happens?
