avoid the deadly radiation from nuclear thermal as fast as possible, go find the green magnetic wave to heal yourself

- added another link

- Using arrows
- Press Z to skip dialogs
- Press Z to activate switch
- find the green circle, do not rush your way, think before you act that's the key

Patient => accuracy and precision :D

The game just says "Welcome to prison of hell", and then just sits there with things floating past. I can't get past it.

I hope you do get to finish this - what you have so far looks great and there's clearly a good game in there waiting to come out.

The intro was pretty awesome. The blue dotted shapes and the glow on the font looked cool.

I liked the intro graphics! Couldn't get past the invisible wall next to the computer. Are there more keys than WASD? How to hide from the radiation?

I am sorry, I can't vote because I can see only "welcome to prison of hell" :(

Very good idea, and very well made. Only the player moves a little too slow, and the graphics were a little difficult to get used to, being neither really comic-stlye nor realistic

The idea is fine, the intro graphics are too produced (really cool). I feel slow the game, maybe because I like insane games? Maybe xD
Good work, and happy Ludum Dare.

Pro tip: Press 'Z' the skip the dialog.
I wish the hero was running faster! His animation really suggests a higher speed. I found it very hard.
Good job.

Seems like a decent concept. Shame you didn't get more time with it. One comment I have is that the movement speed felt very slow, and also I list of controls could help.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:57pm

Cool but inconsistant art style. I really like your color pallette. The game has a neat atmosphere and I think you should definitely put more time into it.

not the game, but the main character walk so slow :D, yes you need to find green circle and stay to hide from radiation
- on dialog just press Z

'Think before act' is going to go on the wall of inspiration here at Bumpkin Labs. Very nice.

I like it, I had to come back here for instructions, but then it was fun

I just miss sounds and as other people said the main character walks just a bit too slow. Overall it is nice entry!

arcticleaf says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:23pm

ok, if the problem is the movement speed from main character, will increase it

arcticleaf says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:43pm

already fixing the previous dialog system bugs, win condition bugs and also movement speed
have fun everyone :)

Way too much intro text for my tastes, but otherwise this game was pretty interesting. Good job!

The games has a great feel to it, seems like the start of a really cool RPG, but I think you might have tried to cram too much stuff into a LD entry. Anyway, it's a great start!

"Uploaded 25 minutes ago" What ?..
I think there are too much text on the intro. But graphics are fine ;)

Good job.

arcticleaf says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 3:19pm

yes, i did upload the fixed version as prev comments said the movement speed too slow and win condition was buggy ,

Trying to get through the dialog was annoying. Collision was weird. There's a neat idea behind it, but it needs a lot more polish than that to be playable.

Interesting game system and take on the theme. I liked the scenario writing too!

This could be expanded into an epic game. I encourage you to continue developing it after LD! Great game!

arcticleaf says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 3:55pm

Thanks for playing guys, i will continue developing it after LD, at this moment still be like that i will only fix the bugs,

Too much dialogue and you move too slowly. Some things are slighty unclear
gameplay sounds?

It has so much potential though.

Good job!

Nice idea, it would be great if there was a way to skip an entire dialog sequence though, as they can become a bit long, but overall good job!

Like others have said, the main character could use a speed boost. Kind of frustrating to have one of the enemies slowly catch up to him. The world itself looks great but I kind of wish there was more detail. It's not too big of a concern because I know time is a luxury for these types of things. Dialogue was hit or miss but if it was just trimmed down and proofread, I'm sure I'd enjoy it a lot more. Good job overall though.

nice graphics and context, but I felt I just wanted to start playing .. too long before I actually get to play.

I felt there was a bit too much dialog before I could get started. The splash screen design made me think the game would be something completely different.

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 ( 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.
