I think it's too pretty a game to be web-only. In my experience, the Unity web plugin runs at about half the framerate of standalone builds.

I really enjoyed your game! The atmosphere was nice.

I love any Unity game that puts instructions straight in the game. It took me a couple times to actually catch the target. A neat game, for sure.

Can you make a Linux binary? There is no unity web player for Linux.

@stqn Oh, i didn't know, it's a shame. I'll try to prepare Linux standalone soon (as well as standalones for other platforms).

I had a hard time figuring out how not to get caught, how are they catching you? Proximity over time?

took a little while to realise the target wasn't the one right at the start. makes for quite a suspenseful game (if you don't use F to intentionally move enemies out of the way. maybe only the closest few should give chase?)

Really like the idea, a little too heavy for webplayer, though. Like the looks too.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 4:01pm

An assassin-game. Nice idea!

Artstyle is also quite unique.

I liked the graphic style. It took me several tries before I figured out that the diamond thing I was looking for wasn't the one right at the start.

I just warped to a mash up universe of 1980's style and 2080 flair. I like the atmosphere bu the game seems haphazard in its difficulty. I kept running into enemies just trying to walk around. Maybe open up the corridors or slow down everyone's speed? I like the premise though!

Nice style, but a bit too difficult. Couldn't find my target.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:11pm

lol, wow, that was some trippy shiznit (in a good way)! =D

The graphics looks really good, they felt very fluent. I like the atmosphere, felt a little like participating in laser tag or like some kind of weird nightclub. :D
However, I could not get the hang of the gameplay at all. The controls felt pretty sluggish, and the choice of action buttons felt poor, I would rather prefer having them on the right side so I could utilise both hands. Also, maybe try to add more visual/audio feedback when approaching/targeting or when enemies spot you. The corridors felt a little tight as well, maybe add some more variance to them?
The setting and atmosphere is top notch though, nice work!

Awesome game! I found that the guards can't catch you if you stand on their heads. hahaha

The dynamics this game created was truly inspiring. This is an actual stealth game compared to many other big titles. It created real cause and effect when you tried to infiltrate. Only thing I missed was some feedback whether I was in focus mode or not. It seemed like focus mode stayed on for a short while and then turned off by itself?

Great game none the less. Loved the graphics and the motion blur!

I had the same problem as a few other people - I thought the green example guy was the target, and got confused. Also, I managed to make things quite a lot easier by standing a long way away from the city yelling "I'm focussed! Come and get me!", then darting past the crowd of reds and searching the crowd with impunity.

But on the plus side, very distinctive visuals, nicely balanced difficulty (my sneaky tactics notwithstanding), and a great style of gameplay that I wish we saw more of in LDs. Nice work!

Really nice graphics, but a little lacking on the gameplay. Focus wouldn't even work for me, so maybe thats something to check out. Nice job anyway.

Fancy graphics.

Mouse sensitivity was too high for me and I have a problem with the motion blur, so gets a bit sick from playing it.

I got caught a lot.

I liked the atmosphere. The gameplay was fun, bet the instructions were a bit confusing.

Nice concept, couldn't work out that the target was in the maze til i check the comments but other than that, very enjoyable

The mouse sensitivity... It is so high!!!

It's an interesting concept otherwise. Got lucky and made it in 10 seconds :3

You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
