The Stuffuv

by roaet - Jam Entry

Pronounced (Stuff of)

This is a horror themed puzzle game (Push Box) with a twist. Not many levels were made and even music and sound effects to totally give it the horror feel were not able to be made.

Also made by Aerryn.

1 - 4 : Select your match
Shift : Will snuff your current match
Spacebar : Will light your selected match if you don't have one
Escape : Will restart the level so the stuffuvs don't kill you
WASD or Arrows: To move

(apparently you can press 9 to get 99 of all matches, who knew...)
The game pretty much ends after the pink room, but you can keep playing it over and over again.

Because there has been some confusion about the match colors:
White - Primarily used to light your way, but may take you to weird places sometimes. Use the white match to get back.

Blue - Will change the level?
Red - Will change the level?

Green - Will take you to the next level.

Nice game! I was very confused what the different lighters did, but I managed to finish the game.

I like the disorienting feeling of moving between spaces in the dark, especially when it leads to creepy dead ends.

Awesome mood-setting here, and quite interesting gameplay concept. I really would have played more if there was more content! Good job!

Very cool!

Really well done. The action element of the match-lighting mechanic adds some variety and tension too which is great.

Love the minigame-mechanic, it's much better than "just a button"

Very nicely done! It took me a while to figure out what was going on, but THEN I was able to make progress. Very interesting and I say keep working on it.

Nice concept, very atmospheric. Trying to light the match when everything goes dark can really make you panic and screw up :D good stuff!

Pretty fun, even if the hitting the match right in the red area was tricky.

This had a lot of potential and was kind of freaky but I couldn't work out how to do the two box puzzle haha. Also was there something I was meant to do in that room that basically has an infinite path going upwards?

Omg this is super creepy! Thanks for making it!
Top points for mood and audio!

Very moody and I tensed up every time you have to switch matches. The expectation of something bad happening worsened the farther you got into the game! I only wish there were more levels!

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.
