You have ten seconds to find a way to kill yourself or terrible things will happen to you!

There are up to three different ways to kill yourself, so try some different things! ;)

Move: WASD/ZQSD/ARROW KEYS/XBox360 Controller DPAD or Left Joystick
Jump: SPACE/A on the XBox360 Controller
Sprint: SHIFT/L1/R1
Pick items up/Throw items: X (also on the XBox controller)
Restart the level: R
Show the controls ingame: ESCAPE (not possible with XBox controller)

Please rate and comment! I love your feedback :)
And tweet me (@zedutchgandalf) if you want me to rate your game! :D

Haha, what a macabre idea! I like how there's not questioning the game. Just kill yourself quick.

Funny. I like the cigar in the boss's mouth :p

Strange but funny idea :) There should be some sound and/or music.

Really couldn't figure out what to do on the second level!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 11:10am

@bnhw there are multiple ways to kill yourself :) don't break your head over what is the 'right' one ;)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 11:38am

This was really clever and funny! I didnt expect such a good ending! Good game, made me laugh several times.

Funny idea. I did find the controls to be a bit frustrating at times, but at least I managed to kill myself on multiple occasions :P
Some sound would make the experience even better!

I like it!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 2:11pm

Silly that the only thing you do is have to kill yourself, funny game. I couldn't get past the 2nd level though :(

Amazing. Could have used more ways to die after the window and hitting yourself with stuff, but it was hilarious!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 2:27pm

@RHY3756547 There are more ways to die than those two ;)

Hahahahahaha, pretty nice,

Adding sound effects would make it nicer.

Also there could be other ways of killing yourself :)

I liked it ! Although graphics were simple and there was no sound, it perfectly conveyed the different situation each time.

Loving the "congratulations! You died!". Great - and macabre - game!

Funny idea. However i think the lack of sounds is really hurting this game

I wish it had sound and more ways to die, I only found out one way on the first level and couldn't get through the second one :(

I really like the idea and the theme :)

So good game! Really enjoy the gameplay, the sounds are weird but I like it!

Very funny indeed. I found myself saying; "OK last level this time" a lot and then it ended :-) The graphics could use work and i'd like to see some audio but otherwise enjoyable.

kind of made it through the first level, didn't find out to die in the second. Love the Idea, though

I loved it, nice credits screen. Would have been nice to have some variation in the ways of dieing other than just dropping something on your head.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:23pm

@blay09 There are other ways, you just have to experiment :)

LOL, crazy but fun.

At first I thought it was unbeatable after the second level, but my friend did it, so I said "why not" and made it. (Best part was actually discovering that we suicided in different ways)
Loved the ending, got me by surprise.
I would recommend some sound and music next time ;D

Didn't worked for me. Windows 7, 64 bit, no Xbox controller

Ops, sorry. That was only a really slow start.. It popped up after a minute or two.. Very funny idea, loved how you tied the "kill yourself" theme even if it wasn't a winner! Too bad ofr the lack of sound..

Ha ha, nice one. I still died in the end! :D

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. 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 ( 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.
