Very confusing at first, it would be nice to have an explanation of what is going on.
Although once I figured it out, I enjoyed it a lot. Very short, very nice looking, and the music is seriously amazing!

This game has a lot of potential, I hope you keep working on it:)

Very nice work!
I like how the game itself tells you everything you need to know.
Nice work on the sound too!
Great work!

Don't quite see how it fits the theme, but certainly creepy.

I have really a good feeling about this game. The game although short gives me a sense of design in deep. I enjoy playing this.

BTW: The concept makes me to think about The Lord of the Ring, when you need to hide from the eye of Sauruman :)

A very intresting experience, I don't see how it relates to the theme but is still a very nice entry.

Thank you for playing everyone!

About the theme...
The music while you are walking is 4 bar(=16 beats total) in tempo 96, which is 16 * 60/96 = 10seconds. I think the title of this game should have been kind of "10 seconds away".

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.
