A Black and White Escape

by HighQuality - 48 Hour Competition Entry

This is my second Ludum Dare entry.

The goal is simple, pass the guards unnoticed or flee from them and solve some of my extremely easy puzzles and you should be good to go :)

There are an ingame tutorial so the controls should be quite easy to understand.

A timelapse will be uploaded to http://www.youtube.com/user/guywithacam sometime soon.

Please let me know what you think about the game :)

Next time I'll most likely write my game in C++ or Java.

Somehow I am unable to kill one of the guards or to flee.

F-Secure warns that the game is harmful. I know that some older versions of GM trigger this, but usually GM games give me just a 'suspicious' -warning, so I'd like to hear more on this.

@tctyle
You can't kill guards that starts moving, even when they have stopped moving, that's a bug that'll get fixed some time.
When they've lost sight of you they'll eventually stop.

@Hempuli
Yes, I'm aware that some antiviruses makes false-positives on Game Maker games, it has something to do about Game Maker modifying the exe when it starts running.
IF you got Game Maker installed you could simply download the source and run that.
Anyways, the only potentially harmful thing a Game Maker game can do without a DLL is to modify the registry and create vbs viruses and then start them.
However I can assure you I did none of this.

@quickfingers
Thanks :)

The physics seem broken, I couldn't always pick a rock or kill a guard. Also, I was confused that the walls are actually 3D and that I can walk behind it (i.e. the camera is more angled than pure top-down).

Overall neat game.

@Trancelucid
Yup, however I think the 3D still looks better than if it would be simple topdown.
Anyways, thanks for the feedback :)

Yay, cool game, fun to play, reminds me of Metal Gear, very entertaining for 48h and cool ending to boot.
Thanks
